2 Week Old Kittens

As promised here are some pictures of the little kittens we had rescued!


The orange kitten on the left hand side was named Pumpkin. He (or she) was the fluffiest of the group. If we had kept one it would have been that one. But unfortunately I don't know what my living circumstances will be in a few weeks or months so I was unable to call dibs on it. Plus he had to go with his mom and was too young to survive on his own.


This one was Peaches. Always so bright eyed and wanting to know what was going on all of the time.


And this one was the runt of the litter. Super feisty and hissed all of the time thinking she was tough (nevermind she had no teeth yet and her legs were too short to scratch when held lol). She was the 5th one who hid on us while we brought the others inside then went back out to make sure we didn't forget any...good thing we did.

I would have taken more photos but Tuffie didn't like me going anywhere near her babies. She really didn't like me as much as I thought she would. It took both my dad and I to catch her and put her in the create with the kittens to take them to the SPCA. We had it set up so she would have to go through me to escape the living room. She tried going through my legs and I caught her with my legs then shoved her into the create closing the door almost catching her tail and said "its ok you never really liked me anyways". The ladies at the SPCA thought that that was hilarious.

If things were different and we were more prepared we would have kept them. It just got too stressful and our lives were just revolving around them to the point we were barely getting any sleep. We went from no pets to 6 over night and the kittens were already moving and climbing over each other. It would only be another week or two before they would try making their way out of their playpen.

  1. I have been following your story of your kitty rescue on 'TheCross Stitching Forum' too and they were so fortunate to have chosen your yard in which to make their temporary home. Now they have a chance of a good future:):)
