Too bad the spam got so bad. Some of us have been spending time at the new community for folks with a love of old houses at wavyglass.org

He's my bud. Supervises all my work. Makes sure I'm never behind closed doors.

He puts things in my duffel bag for me so I'm prepared at work.

I get some odd looks from co-workers...

Oh Lord! Yesterday some neighbor kids found this tiny kitten! She looks to be, at the most, 2 weeks old. Their household has 2 adults, 3 kids, 3 dogs & 2 guinea pigs. This poor little thing would never have made it.....so I took it! I called my vets office because I know they have a momma kitty there who is nursing babies of her own. I'm waiting to hear back to see if I can take her up there & see if that momma will accept her & nurse & ween her.

I'm gone 12 hrs a day, 4 days a week...I'm simply not home enough to do this myself, but she sure is a cutie pie!

She's just a little bigger than my hand! Way too young to be away from Momma!

Kitten update..."She" is a "He". He weighed in at a whopping .7 lbs. One of the techs at my vets office will be fostering him. I put some $$ on my acct there to pay for any formula & tests or meds they may need. She will use her employee discount for everything. We will split the cost of the neutering surgery & then he will be put out in the lobby for adoption.

I couldn't be happier with the way things turned out! he will be in great hands & get lotsa of attention all day at the office, then go home with her in the evenings for lots of love there too. Talk about a win-win situation! :D

Here he is trying to change my remote! You can see how tiny he is!!

Another lucky Kitty saved by Mo. So kind and thoughtful of you. :) There certainly is a special place for
people like you at "Rainbow Bridge". Thanks for sharing the good news with us.

Show us a face photo, please? Are his eyes open? He is adorable. Thank you for giving him a chance at a great life with the right family. Thank the vet's office, too. Someday, when we are ready, we will get our next kitty and I hope it is a baby from the vet's from a situation just like this.

Thanks Jade & Susan! Didn't really think of it like that, but yes...I couldn't save my baby but I got the opportunity to save another one. I know he will get everything he needs to become a healthy baby kitty! **meow meow** :D

Here is the best one I got. His eyes are open, but he wasn't very cooperative with the camera! Kept squirming around!

I'm going to visit him on Friday & I'll get some pics of how he's grown!
