    Default Oh boy here goes nothing....

    So this morning I'm walking and what do I find? a kitten in the street. Eyes still closed, still has belly button cord stub. So He is around 1-4 days old. Great No mom or littermates in sight. Off to petsmart I go for milk replacement. Wont take the nursing bottle, went to pharmacy for infant syringe dropper. So far he's eating sucessfully and I'm stimulation him to potty. He is now to be called, Tiny Tom. He's a grey tabby, medium hair it looks to be.

    Poor little thing. Kittens are so much harder than puppies I think so I wish you all the best taking care of him or her. We would love to see a picture or two of the wee newbie....

    perhapes momma cat dropped him while moving him and was chased by a dog or a person and dropped him.

    Awww, good on your for taking the little kitten on. I too wonder how on earth a little thing so young ended up in the street like that. Sounds crazy, but sometimes I wish that would happen to me so I'd have a damn good excuse to get another puppy/kitten.
    Good luck, I hope everything goes well for you both, wish I lived closer cause I'd give you a hand. Please keep us updated......

    Aw wow, thanks for taking him in! Poor wittle thing. I wonder if something took him from mommas nest. Like another animal, but maybe it got spooked and dropped it. Or mom could have been moving it and spooked.

    Hey guys as an update... Tiny Tom is doing great. Eating every hour and a half and gaining weight. I spoke to my vet and she said he saids like hes doing good and told me bring him in if anything happens but that I'm doing everything right so far. I had to give him a couple drops of oil to unconstipate him but besides that he has done welll. His little belly button stub fell off last night. I found out his story. I went to the house nearest to where I found him. The man said a stray had 2 kittens in his backyard he saw them Friday near his shed. And when mom cat saw him she was starlted then saturday morning they were gone. So he thiks she moved them after seeing him. So she did most likey drop Tiny Tom whiloe moving him. I just hope he keeps doing well. Right now my boss is even letting me take him to work So he doesnt miss any feedings. He's going potty good now too (with my help ofcourse) so I'm really happy! I will try to get pics up soon too!
