Remember the kittens my wife and I found in the garage several weeks ago? One was dead, three were alive. A second died in the first two weeks… but two kittens survived for several weeks. The last two both died Sunday, November 23rd.
When we first found them, my wife took it upon herself to bottle feed the kittens. That means for the first couple weeks, she fed them every four hours. But a four weeks ago, they began sleeping through the night.
But three days ago, their bellies became bloated, and they got diarrhea… we were concerned. This was a possibility after the kittens switched from formula to solidish food.
Well… Sunday morning, one was dead… and the other died soon after. Had the kittens survived, we would have put them up for adoption. So we are sad… but we will be okay.
Remember the kittens my wife and I found in the garage a couple weeks ago? One was dead, three were alive. Well two of the three kittens survived, and they seem to be doing well. My wife bottle fed the kittens every four hours… which left her exhausted… and also left me exhausted because I woke up most of the time when she fed the kittens.
Starting Friday October 17th, the kittens began sleeping through the night without needing fed… at 2 a.m., 6 a.m., etc… so that has made things easier! But my sleep schedule still has me waking up at odd times of the night. When my sleep schedule finally resets I will feel better about the kittens.
These pictures were taken Friday October 17th, when the kittens were 15 days old.
My wife says the kittens are cute. I don’t know. Maybe, but they messed up my sleep schedule (and my wife’s sleep schedule). Now that we can start sleeping better maybe the kittens will look cuter to me. Maybe…
