On October 28th, 2019, a woman posted on social media that she found a tiny, newborn kitten all alone and crying for help. After the kitten's cries continued for hours and the temperature continued to drop, it became clear that no mother cat was returning. As a result, myself and two others who have varying levels of experience raising kittens and other mammals offered to take in the little feline.
Fast forward to several hours later, the original rescuers found ANOTHER newborn kitten! Again, mama cat had no interest. So we took in that one as well.
Since then, we have been working in shifts to provide around the clock care for these fragile newborns. At this stage, they need to eat every two hours and cannot even go to the bathroom by themselves. Feeding is a careful and arduous process as one wrong move could lead to aspiration and pneumonia. We are learning more everyday and they are making consistent strides.
However, we are NOT a rescue. We are three individuals working as hard as we can, and we are not funded by anyone. We want- no, we NEED- to keep caring for these babies as no other rescue that we have spoken to is able to provide this level of care. But we can't do it alone. Supplies, formula, and ultimately veterinary care are adding up- quickly.
PLEASE donate anything you can to help us continuing to provide lifesaving care for these two tiny lives.
**NOTE: We can provide receipts for everything that we have bought and any care that they will require. Any money that is not spent will be donated to a rescue which we will also provide proof of**
