    New kitten!!

    Lol, so my mom drives a bus and at the bus yard people started to notice two stray cats. (a boy and girl, and now you see where this is going) So one day they noticed a few foxes hanging around, bad news for any cat. (The mother was killed last Friday, poor thing... ) Soon their was kitten running around free.The entire bus yard wanted to save the admittedly adorable kitten by tricking it into start eating food in a crate. My mom seeing what they planned and never thinking they would catch it said she would take it. Well, sure enough they handed the kitten to her last Tuesday...

    So now I have a cute girl kitten named Lilly! She has become less scared, but doesn't like being held. (We can pet her, and she will lick us when we do.) She has used the litter box, but she kicked the sand OUT of it! XD She has eaten some, (not as much as I would have liked but she probably filled her tummy) and I am 80% sure she has been drinking. So here are the only pictures I have of her.

    Cute! Good luck with her. You might try giving her some dirty laundry to sleep on, to help her get accustomed to your scent. Thanks for sharing your pics. I should post some of my roommates' kittens. We can have a battle of cuteness!

    That is true. I guess I've just heard that giving them something to sleep next to that smells like you will help many types of domestic animals to bond faster.

    How old do you suppose she is? I can't tell from the pic how big she is. But maybe she's so young she needs the kitten milk/kitten formula still and not food/water yet? They sell the kitten milk at Walmart now in the nipple cap bottle in the cat supplies section. Have you taken her to a vet yet? They'd be able to check her out and tell you. If she's not going for kitchen tap water, try the cold bathtub water. My cats only drink the tub tap water, so I have a metal bowl in the tub I fill with fresh tub water for them every day. They have a bowl in the kitchen but they don't touch it. I've tried the tub tap water and I don't taste any difference but they seem to.

    And horray for taking in a stray! I don't believe in buying cats and dogs when there's so many who need homes. My two are strays, my uncle brought me Flash and Sundance from under the dumpster at the fire dept on the Indian reservation, he gave the others away to the other fire fighters. Sundance ate something which killed him and I adopted another stray (Anna) she's very skittish and only let's me hold her if she's standing on my chest while I lay on my back. She is very playful if we go outside on the patio though. She's like a totally different cat.

    Thanks swords. If you put your finger tips together, she could just fit from one end of your palm to the other. Well, I do have small hands though. She is using the little box and gorging on the food now! She ate an entire wet kitten food pack and most of a bowl of dry food. She will be putting on a healthy amount of weight soon! She can easily change from scared little kitten to semi-shy playful kitten if you coax her out by mimicking her meows and softly calling her name (of coarse on your stomach, she is scared other wise) and then scratching her ears. She let me watch as she ate and drank and I hand feed her a bit more. She tried playing but, I guess she was still a wee bit to nervous.

    I have to ask my mom when she can visit the vet for her checkup. I believe my mom wants to wait until after she has bonded with us before she gets her vaccinations. I told her I don't think she will hold a grudge at such a young age.
