My niece to the rescue

When my phone rang yesterday and I saw it was my niece, I was worried.  She never calls, we just text.  Turns out it was a kitten call what else.  Siobhan has been interning outside Guelph and was told that they heard a cat crying for the last 3 nights.  Of course Siobhan sprang into action and crawled under a portable to rescue this little guy.
Only a couple of weeks old, he wouldn't have survived much longer.  I told Siobhan about bottle feeding and off she went to buy KMR.  Luckily she was able to find someone nearby who has raised kittens before.

I am so proud that she saved this kitten!  Siobhan loves cats, and has fostered for me in the past.  Steve and I have already joked that we will have to leave her all our money and our cats.

Crazy Cat has not settled down, her behaviour is so odd, she doesn't appear frightened, she plays and sleeps on the bed, but when Sandi goes in she still lunges at her claws out.  She is going to be spayed tonight and then Ian, unable to stand the thought of putting her out in the cold, has agreed to take her in.


  1. What a wonderful rescue story, your neice is great, and that kitten is just darling.

    Crazy Cat sounds very bizarre. Perhaps she has a brain tumour!

  2. Oh dear, what a sweet little thing. You have to wonder why and how these poor kittens get into the predicament you find them in. Thank God it was rescued. I hope all goes well for the kitten as it's never easy raising them without mom.
