The kitten chronicles

We usually keep kittens with us until they are old enough to eat by themselves and have learned to use the litter box properly, which means they are boarders until they’re 6 or 8 weeks old, and then we find them a definitive home. However these litter came in with a little problem of skin fungus, and since they were too little to be medicated we hoped that with proper feeding they’d be able to fight it off.

Unfortunately this wasn’t the case, and since it’s growing and they’re already 6 weeks old we’re gonna have to start medicating them, and we can’t let them go until they have fully overcome this, mainly because the stress of moving to yet another place would probably affect their recovery. We’re gonna have to give them medicated baths as well as a cutaneous solution and hopefully that’ll be enough. Otherwise they’re gonna need ingested meds, which I’m really really crossing my fingers for them not to need it, they’re mere babies!

Here’s a picture of the whole litter (sorry for the low resolution pic), another one of three of them eating dry food all by themselves (!!), and one of the little one who’s got the worst share of fungus.

  1. They are ADORABLE. The world needs more people like you in it. It takes a special kind of person to foster kittens (or any animal really), to ready them for their permanent home…even harder when they’re ill or have conditions such as they do. Thank you!

    • I guess it just takes just someone who is sensible to their suffering and/or vulnerability. I’ve learned that when people have that, the rest works out somehow. It’s very hard to see how so many animals are neglected not only by their owners but by society in general 😦

      Thanks for caring! xx
