Our New Baby!










Our new baby! She was in the middle of the road in my brother-in-law's neighborhood & not moving. Cars were just driving around her like she wasn't there! She ran into someone's yard when I came up to her. I had some cat food and she was starving so after some coaxing & following her under cars & in bushes my daughter and I were able to catch her. She ate all the food I gave her and was already purring on Angel's lap (my daughter) within a few hours of being at our home. I took her to the vet this morning. She is approximately 10 weeks old. She weighs 1.75 pounds and should weigh around 3 pounds at this age. She is a little pale & has worms so she was given worm medicine. She also had some flea dirt so she was given flea meds. I have her on Hills Urgent Care AD mixed with SuppliCal.  She is very frail, you can feel every bone down her spine & her legs are so bony. My vet says she was starving and pretty much used up all her muscle mass just to keep going. Because of that she's walking kind of crouched right now but shouldn't be for long now that she's eating properly and being taken care of. My vet says that we will be amazed with how quickly she recovers from this and gains weight and start acting like a normal kitten. In the video on Anakin's Facebook ( I'm sorry it wouldn't post here) https://Facebook.com/anakinthetwoleggedcat you'll hear her meow! To me she sounds like a little old lady :) No, she doesn't have a name yet. I'm thinking we might give her a Game of Thrones name since I was crawling around all over someone's yard in the dark trying to catch her while the Game of Thrones finale was on & I love that show ;) We'll see what her personality is like first and then see what fits. Right now she is set up in our hall bathroom just like we do with all new kitties. I'll keep you all posted on how she's doing.

  1. What a sweet little girl! But so very thin. I hope she bounces back as quickly as the vet says!

  2. Carrie, you and your family are just wonderful for taking in the poor little kitty. Thanks to you all she will now have a loving home and get to meet some terrific siblings. Hope Ani is not too jealous at first! In the second picture, she already looks so peaceful. You all should be called the Kitty Angels.

  4. Oh the poor little darling! I'm so glad you got her! We are purring and praying that she gains quickly and starts feeling wonderful! That first picture, she looks like a little baby possum! I love that she has a spot on the top of her head to show you right where to give her a kiss! Smooches, little one, you landed in a good home!
