Have you been considering getting a kitten or two? Well, we’re going to shamelessly tempt you with cuteness. A Polish Hill resident found a large litter of kittens in a rubbish pile behind the building where she works. She and her co-workers kept an eye on the kittens for a day, but the mother never returned. The nine kittens are now being fostered by Elizabeth Bashur, of Little House, Big Art. The kittens are about three weeks old — too young to be separated — and must be fed by hand every three hours. They’ll be ready to adopt in about five weeks.
In the meantime, Elizabeth is going to be short on sleep – those 3 am feedings are tough. She is hoping to find homes for the kittens rather than surrender them to a shelter. If you’d like to visit the kittens, perhaps help with feeding, cleaning, or just holding and petting them, stop in at Little House Big Art. The hours are:
Mondays 2:00 – 6:00
Tuesdays 10:00 – 8:00
Wednesdays 10:00 – 6:00
Thursdays 2:00 – 6:00
Fridays 10:00 – 8:00
Saturdays 10:00 – 6:00
And don’t blame us if you decide to take home a couple. After all, if you have one cat, you might as well have two — they can keep each other company, and it really isn’t that much more trouble. Really.
I’d love to post these little ones on my site tomorrow! Each Monday I feature cats and kittens who were rescued by individuals or who are fostered or up for adoption by individuals, just to give them a little more help with finding homes.
But nine kittens?! That’s a big job for one person. I’ll give her a call tomorrow and find out a little more plus give her some information on low-cost vet services and spay and neuter for rescues. Thanks for posting!
