My favorite spot in the house





Author: Raowr, the wanderer

Yups, I is glad to be homes. I get to sit on the vent and make momma turn on the heat for me. I gets all toasty and my furs stay warm for hours.
I bets you is all wondering how I got soooo far away from home in just a few days time? Well, Momma thinks I got in someone's car accidently or in the back of a truck and then jumped out when they stopped. Its oviouse from the boo boo's on my wittle paws that I has walked alots. But there's just no saying what all I did on my adventurs.
I will tell you abouts the lady who rescued me and posted me on the intratnety so my momma could come gets me. This lady is named Christine. She and her hubby wents to this little mexican restuaranty called "Lupe's Escape". Its just about 5 minutes from where they live. Anyway, while they were there they saws me wandering around the outdoor patio. It had been a few days since I had run aways, so I was espicially hungry! I can't belive no one out here in the big world knows that i likes my Whiska's wet food in a pouch and it has to be fishy flavors. I was lucky to gets a bite from someones stale leftover burger next door at the mcdonalds. I went over to the other resturuanty and was hoping somone would take pitty on mes. They did! The owner of the resuruanty couldn't keep me but Christine said she would take me and help me find my mum. She took me home where she had 3 kittys and great big friendly woofy. I was a verry good girl and didn't hiss at no body and even let the big woofy sniff me lots. Christine feds me, even if she didn't has no Whiskas seafood pouches...at least it was good proper kitty food! Christine wanted me to find my mum so she posted on Craigslist. There are probably 30 postings a day on there for people who have found pets or losted them...so its no wonder that my mum somehow missed the posting for two whole days! And Christine didn't find the original posting my momma had made neither. But luck was wif me and Momma was ables to find my postings on craiglist.

I really enjoyed my time wif Christine (my guardian angel) but I was super glad that momma came and brought me home so I can sleep on my heater vents. Christine and her hubby was getting attached to me, cause I is so super mellow and sweet...so I know I would have had a good home wif them, but I is glad that Momma doesn't has to cry about me no more. :)

Remeber me? -Old Photo-




Author: Momma

I haven't wanted to blog because in addition to the loss of all the babys, I also lost Raowr. Grandma can't remember that the indoor cats are suppose to be indoor. There are many in the neighborhood and occasionally the two boys (Hunter and Napoleon) would go outside. SO anyway, Grandma can't remember who goes and who stays and she accidently let Raowr outside.

Raowr disappeared around the 5th. I went out and looked and looked and called her name for days. I went into the woods, posted on craigslist and told everyone I knew in town to be on the look out for my lost baby. Here is a link to my ad on craigslist My lost Ad

Anyway, I have been checking faithfully everyday on craigslist and in the neighborhood. No luck. Then somehow I had missed seeing this ad on craigslist Other Ad on Craigslist So it says they found her in Aloha which is about 1 hour and 45 minutes drive from here!!! In just 3 days she went like 80 miles through the back woods and whatnot to get there?? It doesn't matter how she got there, but I've been frantically trying all day to get ahold of this woman Christine...but so far no luck. I'm praying that she hasn't given up on finding the owner (me) and praying she hasn't taken Raowr to the humane shelter. Or if she did, I hope she will call or email me so I can go and get her.

Anyhow, there is a real good chance now that I will get my sweety back alive and well! Hopefully Christine will call first thing in the morning. I'll let you all know and take many many photos of Raowr as soon as she is back safe and sound at home!!!!!

UPDATE:


RAOWR IS SAFELY HOME!!!! YEAH!!!! WHOOO HOOO!!!!!
She has some booboo's on her feet from all the walkings she did...but otherwise she is in good health and good spirits.

Bad news.I only have a minute here to update. we need prayers again. Belle has bitten the baby in the neck. I don't know if he can be saved, but we are off to the vet this morning. Belle keeps trying to get to the kitten and trying to carry him off, but obviously I can't let her. I have to go now. Will update later this day.

* Update *

MiniBoy in his new bed



Went to the vet, they say the bite is superficial and since he is so small they can't do anything for it. They said to give him Antibotics twice a day, and to keep him warm. Since MommaBelle is too exessive when it comes to moving him around, I'm keeping the little miniboy with me. During the day I will hunt down Belle and supervise little miniboy's feeding times and hopefully we won't have to switch to me handrearing him. In order to keep him snug and warm, I have him in an old tuperware type container with a washcloth on the bottom and a washcloth on top of him, with his head out so he can breath. He was in my pocket but anytime I would bend over or move differently it would make him squirm till he about fell out of the pocket. So I've now got a lucky miracle mini tupperware boy.

*Updated again*

I don't know why, but the little boy kitten has passed on. It could have been from the bite wound, though the vet seemed to think it wasn't very serious. It could have been from an underlying genetic problem. I will never know. But I want to take this time to thank everyone who has been so kind and supportive during this difficult time.

I also want to take this as a horrible life lesson and example and hold it up to all those who think about letting their kitty have just one litter before being spayed. True you might have a wonderful experience or you could have a tragic and expensive lesson. The responsible thing to do is to get your cat or dog spayed/neutered at or before 6 months of age. And if you wait too long, you'll end up with a litter. I wish that I could have had these kittens live a good long life and have great forever families, instead they got called back to heaven a little early.

I'm going to take a few days off from blogging. I'll probably have one of the cats blog again on wednesday. Thank you again to all who sent such nice thoughts and prayers.

Meet Miracle Boy!!!







Author: Momma

It was a very emotional day yesterday so I didn't get a chance to update the good news! After about 6 hours from the death of the two kittens, Belle decided to have one more kitten!! And this one seems to be doing well. He's all black with a tiny little bit of maybe 4 white hairs on the tip of his tail. He's about 24 hours old and has a very very loud voice! He lets Belle know when he's hungry and when he's cold.
Belle still insisted on trying to bring the kitten into the litterbox and I just didn't think it was a very sanitary or good place to nurse him. So I took him out of the litterbox and in with some towels. Belle instantly went and got him and put him back in the litterbox! So I took the lid off the litterbox, and put it on top of the towels. That seems to be what she wanted. She wanted a roof over her and the baby!

I am concerned though as its been 24 hours since the birth of her last baby and she still has some discharge. I don't remember this with the other momma cats I've fostered. Should I take her into the vet? She doesn't seem to be in any physical discomfort, but its still gross and not very hygenic I would think.

With Belle being so super pregnant for the last week I have been locking the two girl kitties in my bedroom with me at night. Just incase Belle goes into labour in the middle of the night, I don't want her to be hiding under the sofa or somewhere that I can't get to her.
So sure enough, at 3:30 this morning, I woke from a troubled sleep to realize that something disgusting had just brushed against my foot. I tore off the covers and there was Belle giving birth in my bed!!!! So I jumped up and quickly carried her to her birthing box in the bathroom. She strained and meowed and freaked out when I tried to leave, so I stay with her. The first baby was an all black one, but despite my best efforts he didn't make it. He never took his first breath and Belle had no interest in him right from the start. Soon after there was another baby born, and it was moving and rearing to go. Its a black or gray one with white on it. The next one born was a white/creamy/orangey? little loud one.

Belle was not happy with the birthing box at all, and attempted to climb into the litterbox repeatedly. I finally had to take the lid off of it and flip it upside down. So, of course, both kittens and Belle are covered in icky litter. I told you all the miracle of life is disgusting! lol

Belle has finally calmed down enough for me to leave the room and update on here. She's still in labor and I wouldn't be surprised if we end up with 4 living kittens. I'll let you know later in the day, since I'm going to be in the middle of cleaning my bed and the labor room for the next few hours.

Update: 5:50am
Well, I guess it turns out that Belle was just very very fat and not so super pregnant. As its been 2 hours since her 3rd kitten was born, I think its pretty much over. The first live kitten is defintly grey with little white markings, and the other one is kind of an orangy white. The orangey one isn't doing so well, I'm worried that we might end up with only one that makes it through the day. Purrs and prayers for momma Belle and the babies.

Update 850am

Orangey one didn't make it. I am having strong doubts that Belle is a suitable momma kitty. I don't know if it was just poor genetics and thats why all her babies are died or dying. Or if its because Belle isn't taking care of them. She hasn't seemed to bond with any of the kittens and leaves them as soon as the door opens. She doesn't cuddle with the last baby either, and she seems much more interested in leaving the room rather then caring for the baby. I'm very surprised since Belle has always been excessivly motherly to all the other cats in the house. I'm exhausted and sadden, so I might not blog for another few days. If the grey and white one makes it I will take photos and I will blog about it.


Update 10:50am


After checking in on Belle I was unable to locate the last remaining kitten. This is the one that had seemed the strongest right from birth. However, Belle had buried the baby in the litterbox. I don't know why she did that. Its really hard to anxiously wait weeks for new life to come and then to have it go so tragically wrong in such a short period of time. I don't know if there was something wrong with these kittens genetically that caused Belle to reject them. I'm hurting a bit now, so I'll blog in a few days.

Ugly Kittens finally arrive!!




Author: Napoleon

Here I was a plannings on being a good uncle kitteh, but geesh thems some ugly alien hatchlings my sista Belle had today! Wowies thems needs some kinda of special lovings, cause not even Belle will go nears the big pink one. I really is interested in her telling us all how that set of twin aliens happened? She keeps insistings it was a normal run of the mill tomcat, but we has photographic proofs now that this was some weird alien hibreed or somefing!!

naaaahhh...its just APRIL FOOLS!!! we still has no kittens as of 10pm april 1st. Momma is getting frustrated and poor Belle is really funny to watch when she twys to groom herself..hehehe. Its so funny cause she ends up rolling to the side instead and then she gets this funny look on her face and pretends taht she meanted to do that.
