Five Days by thrumyeye Five Days by thrumyeye
This summer vacation my boyfriend was waiting for me outside the apartment when the cleaning lady laid this little baby in front of his feet....
It was screaming his lungs out, so my bf -sweet as he is- picked it up.
And when I arrived he said: "Look what i've found.....
And my opinion is...when you pick up a baby kitten...you could at least try to save him.
I convinced my bf to take him to the capitital, to a veterinary.
So we put him carefully in a small yogurt can and took it with us on the bike, hoping someone could help...

We visited two veterinaries, but they both said it was too young. (only 5 days old) It needed milk every three hours, it needed motherly care and it would die if we would take it in the plane...and they weren't in a position to take care of it either...
I decided to try too feed it. So we bought milk and a baby cat bottle, but it refused to drink and I was so desperate....
We couldn't take it with us and it wouldn't survive on its own....so what to do...?
Then I remembered the mother cat near our apartment.....
So we drove home and I gave the kitten to this mother, hoping she would adopt him.
She took him gently and ran away with him, so today 'm still hoping she did her mother-thing and raised him to be a big, strong and healthy boy.....

All life is precious. It's wonderful to see that life can be protected and cared for. Thank you for being there for that kitten.

I'm sure she did. Mama cats in our barn feed kittens that aren't theirs. Just for future reference, bottles aren't the best way to feed very young kittens. We always used kitten milk formula and an eyedropper or syringe, giving them a few drops at a time.

I hope that mother cat wasn't hungry. There are some times when a (young) adult cat eats newly-born kittens if they're too hungry. They can even eat their own kittens after pregnancy. I've actually seen it happen with my own cat so I'm kinda worried about that cute little one in the photo. 

Currently, my momma cat only has 1 kitten when it should have been 3. I was away for 2 days and I didn't have time to feed my momma cat. She was probably hungry after birth and I saw her eat her kitten when I returned. :iconlazycryplz: I didn't see what happened to the other kitten and I'm not sure if Momma ate it or it just evaporated.

Shouldn't making sure your cat has food/water/a caretaker when you're gone be your #1 priority?

If a dog can raise a fox kit, a cat can raise a stranger's kitten :3
