    Glad she is able to get some help for Baby Kitty. Will keep her in my thoughts.

    I’ve raised kittens form about 2-3 weeks on. The first was a litter of 5 that were anemic from fleas and malnourished because the mother was still letting an older litter nurse of her. They were pretty sick and the vet I worked with didn’t think any of them would live. We lost 1 the first night, but the other 4 survived and thrived. I did adopt 1 and we found homes for the other 3.

    The other one I found delivering newspapers early one morning. She was about 2-3 weeks old and screaming in the middle of someone’s front yard with several adult cats around and 2 litter mates dead nearby. I scooped her up and she quieted down once she was in my car. Her front feet were injured and maggots were starting to develop on them. Several washings and some antibiotics and her feet were almost as good as new. She stayed and is still with me.

    It’s a lot of time caring for them, but worth it if you can do it.
