LOL shit I really need to watch my spelling...
More pictures then please!
Haha, I'd totally believe you if I didn't look like a taller, lighter-skinned clone of my dad.
I salute you for a successful rescue. I failed my first tiny kitten rescue. I've always rescued ones that were old enough to be away from their mother or older cats. I found a kitten that was p...
I have a rescue dog and a rescue cat. Every time I look at them, my heart swells with love and I start to cry because they're so amazing. We don't know the dog's age exactly (I estimate about 4 n...
I can get this... my cat that we rescue from a backyard is now 3 and very spoiled! he was like 2 weeks or something like that. We got another cat from a shelter a little more older but still a ki...
Every kitten I've ever had lived to do the play attack. It's how they practice their hunting instinct with their siblings. It is totally a good thing. I've never had a kitten that wasn't properly...
*winks back. So it's a date?
I bet you patted yourself on the back for about 3 hours as well.
My cat also does the kneading and suckling thing. She's going on 18 years old. She..obviously doesn't so the whole boner thing, though.
But it's already an adult cat..
That's just what your parents tell you. Their real son actually passed away as an infant, so they adopted you.
Holy cow, you did really well and were so lucky. It's almost always a death sentence for them to be away from their mum at such a young age. She looks like such a healthy, strong cat now!
I over indulged one of my cats in play fighting when he was a kitten. Got to be a problem when he was an adult. I dislike using spray bottles or other physical punishments, so every time he start...
Oh fuck my cat that I had to put up for adoption when removed house was black and white too. I was in love with her to the point my heartbreak about that was a factor in my breakup with an ex. Pl...
How would you potty train her?
Not trying to bring you down, but keep a strong eye on it. Babies die. Source, rescued a few of my own. Sometimes they don't make it.
we rescued a very similar little kitty in about 2011 and we loved her to death (especially my daughter who will be a crazy cat lady forever after that cat) here's a pic just after we found Pada...
Kitten not raised by their mothers (read: by humans) are often more bitey than other cats. My sister raised our parents cat and he his a giant ball of bite.
I read of a cat hand-raised by humans who grew up to be exceptionally intelligent: he dragged a bread pudding to the front yard to attract birds! I have never heard of cat before or since that co...
Definetly our eyes change over time but not in a positive way. * angry rant about glasses and rain *
Love your story -- makes me realize why I'm involved with cat rescue -- so glad people like you exist!
As someone who rescued 2 1.5 week old kittens, the tip of metamucil would have been a great one! Giving a kitten an enema up to 5 times a day was not fun. But, the little boys survived and are do...
Between lack of fiber and dehydration is what killed 2 of the 5 I hand raised. After we lost the second from the constipation we cut the formula, 50/50 with Pedialyte. Every few days we'd cut the...
Brought tears to my eyes. Well done and kudos! (we all love cats here!)
I'm pretty sure she's glad you saved her too!
I hate it when I end up wearing my waste like a giant skirt...
All kittens has blue eyes the first weeks.
What a great story! I love the happilyeverafter! And such a prosh bebbeh. I'm guessing the "triangle method" is that thing where you gotta help 'em poop 'n pee? I know it seems nuts but it is v...
Bless you for helping that little baby!
Thank you for saving her! She is a beautiful creature.
I'm a dog person too, but also a Cat, chicken, hamster, hermit crab, rock, and bird person as well.
I think it's really adorable when cats knead things. /r/catskneading needs to be a subreddit
> gets a boner while doing it, then hops off my knee for a bit of > self-fellatio. Most 14 year old boys do this too. Source: Was a 14 year old boy once.
Yes please! She looks gorgeous too.
About five weeks ago I found four tiny tiny kittens in my back yard. I almost ran over them with the lawn mower. I heard them mewing when I put the mower away. I waited many hours to see if mom w...
Yeaaah... my cat that I raised from 3-4 weeks old scratches the wall, the floor, the cabinet.. but not the litter. And he will do it for a solid 5 minutes, because he's extremely stupid.
Haha, oh cats. He sounds like a great cat!
To be fair my dad thought I was half Native American. (My dad doesn't know what Native American people look like)
That is hilarious. :D
So sorry to hear this. I rescued a kitten who was about 4 weeks old, and because of his strength (and eventual hairiness), decided to name him Samson. Today he's a strong, rather fat lovable guy....
Basically. I started out in the world dark red, with a full head of curly black hair. Pretty much the opposite of my parents' previous children. (Edit: currently pale, with mousey Brown hair that...
Yeah, I had dark blue eyes and jet black hair when I was born. I now have green eyes and dirty blonde hair, with freckles.
> the nurse gave my dad a look of pity when he walked into the room. Were you born black and turned into a white kid over time?
Yeah my daughter had grey eyes when she was born and reddish eyebrows with black hair. She now has brown eyes, light brown eyebrows, and medium-light brown hair.
I've been told I look like a Christmas Elf. wink.
Cats are extremely smart and can learn and unlearn behavior if you are consistent and patient enough. They can be stubborn but they will learn.
I've raised a couple of human pups. Yeah, they need no encouragement in that department....
You sound beautiful
I don't know why but I always want to thank people for being kind and caring towards animals in need so thank you.
Hey, at least they get along well enough that they don't attack each other on sight. Two of my cats are friendly toward each other but have never cuddled together but I'm ok with that.
I can try, right now he is outside, all our cats come in at around 9pm. The others though, will walk up to you when you are outside, he runs, he probably thinks it is fun. Well, unless you get hi...
If you happen to have a 24 hour Walmart near by, go there. What I imagine OP is talking about is the KMR brand, which has a first stage for newborns and very young kittens, then a second stage as...
All cats are born with blue eyes and most of them change color as they grow older.
Same here, the nurse gave my dad a look of pity when he walked into the room. My mom just laughed at her.
Thank you for being such a caring person. It's very stressful to rescue and properly nurture such a young kitten but it's totally worth it.
My big, goofy German Shorthair did this for our cat. She was a great adoptive mommy!
Yeah glad she survived! Most kittens separated from mom that young have lower chances of survival unfortunately. Especially if you thought she was only 12 hours old. My wife rescued a little guy ...
Definitely. My daughter's eyes were blue until she was maybe five, then they turned green. I didn't realize it could take that long, and if it weren't for pictures I'd think I was remembering wro...
I found a baby squirrel and cared for it for a few days before taking it to a squirrel rehabber. I used a damp q-tip to get him to go to the bathroom. I was so excited and so happy! It was a st...
That story was gross at first until I figured out you meant "waist" ;)
What a wonderful photo-story ! I have a question: sometimes kitty that have not been raised by Mama-Kitty and brothas/sistas end up having behaviors trouble (bite, violent attacks), is that the c...
Ah okay. I was confused for a second haha! That's weird they didn't tell you.. Ach well she's alive and happy now. And GORGEOUS!
Likely, she's nearly taken my finger off on a few occasions
Our kitten was found on the side of the neighborhood road around the same age as Jules. At that time, my boyfriend was in college so he would take her with him everywhere he went, so as a kitten ...
Same here we babied ours too much. He doesn't even hunt mice :/ and instead of purring he drools. Its cute but gross.
Why exactly didn't you take her to the vet? It could have saved you that whole thing with the constipation and everything.
She is going to be so entitled lol. We saved our male cat from the woods when he was 2 days old, and he basically gets whatever he wants he wants it. He dragged broccoli of my dad's plate once an...
For future reference, the reason your kitten didn't poop is because kittens don't have control over their bowels. The mom licks their bum to get them to start pooping! Taking a damp, soft cloth t...
We found this out about our Russian Blue, the eyes slowly change color. Also I know humans do, I was dark blonde with grey eyes.
Yeah, if you've ever heard the term "baby blues" in reference to eyes (not postpartum depression), it's because of this.
Yep, same sort of thing. Blonde hair, blue eyes when I was born. Now I have thick, blackhole color hair and dark brown eyes.
I was born with red skin and black hair. My dad wasn't sure I was his because both of my parents are blonde, pale, with light eyes. Today, I'm about as white as can be with naturally blonde hair ...
KMR is a good brand.
The other 50% was classified because she was part raptor.
threads like this makes me so fucking happy! good one OP. I wish i could give u gold..but u can thanks PAO for that. Good Karma coming ur way!
I'm sure that's not all you smell, amirite?
I'd be really upset if our moms had to do that. There would probably also be less humans on the planet.
Yep. They're cats alright.
The last picture, sooooooo good!
Video pls? The coo sounds adorable
I'm a human (obviously) and my eyes change color even now. Since about I was about twelve, my eyes have changed several times between colorless grey and really vibrant blue. It's pretty cool.
I have a 10 year old dog that still that does that. She was a rescue, so its likely she was taken from mom too soon. All our blankets have at least a few holes. She's gotten better about it with ...
Yep. My birth certificate says brown hair, blue eyes, and I have baby pictures of me looking completely alien this way. I have jet black hair and brown eyes.
We have 2 orphans and they're almost 14 now. Still so clumsy, too! They fall off the backs of the couches sometimes or just don't always land on their feet. We had them checked for neurological d...
ive never seen an ugly kitten
Whoa!! Lol! Mine doesn't go that far
This happens with almost all mammals. Their eyes always start as the "baby blue", then change as their pigment forms.
What's her personality like? I find that kittens that are hand raised tend to be more "spoiled" while those rescued at 4-6 weeks seem to be more "thankful". Does she lean towards the "spoiled" si...
I don't remember if he was as small as yours, but we had to poop him and feed him with a dropper. Guy screamed a lot, but you gotta do what you gotta do. It was my brother who had found him just ...
I tried to show my cat (also a little outdoor find like yours, but he was about 3 weeks old when we found him) how to bury it by using his paw to move the litter over it when he was first learnin...
Our bottle kitten (now a year old) sucks on the fur on her forearms. So far it hasn't caused any trouble for her but we know to watch for sore spots
We have one 14 years old and he still does it, and gets a boner while doing it, then hops off my knee for a bit of self-fellatio.
This is the most amazingly cute /r/aww post I have ever seen.
We saved our cat from a storm drain during a hurricane, he was nearly washed away. It's been so rewarding having him around.
Haha my basset is the total opposite. He barely wants to move at night... That lazy butt, but I still love him
Mostly in people of Northern European decent, most babies are born with light colored eyes (light brown, blue, green) and then in the coming weeks/months darken to closer to their true shade (if ...
My black fluffy monster had blue eyes when she was a baby, now they're bright green.
We had a German Shepherd (50% that, 50% something else. We liked to joke she was part wolf), who we adopted when she was a pup, and was raised around my mom's cat and my kitten, so she acted a li...
My mother had a similar situation, her friend found a kitten (supposedly ~3 weeks old based on the weight). Now it's been nearly 5 years. His behavior is definitely more crazy than that of our ot...
Very adorable. We did the same thing. Here he is. I put an extra super cute picture at the end of his big sister Nikita. We don't have any more pictures of him that young mostly because we were ...
Proper subreddit reaction evoked.
I don't even like cats...most the time I strongly dislike them...but this is awesome. Every animal deserves love.
This is the best thing I've seen all week. You guys are awesome people.
I also had a rescue cat for a while, he never socialized with other cats and he was extremely rough when he would bite and claw, not because he was mean but because he never learned any limits fr...
Maybe we shouldn't :
Nice to know there's still kindness and decency out there. Somewhere.
Excellent to hear!
"The joy we would feel when a turd finally fell out was amazing." Awwww :' )
Good on you. You see so many posts where people say they rescued a cat. This is one where the word seems truly appropriate.
I have a cat that's 5 yrs old who still does this!
Have to look at a few of the pics, but it seems like all piggies are present.
I keep powdered goat kid milk that is suitable for many species as a milk replacer (nurseall brand) specifically for this reason. Fostered many litters of kittens/puppies, some had mothers that...
Yep, definitely. My dog's eyes stared out blue and then changed to a light brown around 5-6 weeks old.
How dare you make me feel my own feels.
And that was before you even knew that it was necessary to help them urinate...
Ummm...I think you failed a science class along the way.
It looks only about 7 days old in that photo, likes the eyes are about to open up. As far as the wet cloth not working, I had to add a tiny bit of cooking oil to my kitten's formula when it got...
I noticed that, but couldn't tell if all her toes made it too.
Oh hey, voldemorts a cat now!
Looks like she has all four, so I'd say it's all good.
This brought tears to my eyes! She's so adorable.
What happened with her leg?
How did her foot turn out?
> What is this?
I believe humans' and dogs' eyes change as well.
Could be good /r/BeforeNAfterAdoption material OP.
Thank you for being good people.
We once found a little kitten too. Not as tiny as this one though, but it was still too early for him to leave his mother. He would suck our carpet for minutes on end, digging his little claws in...
Dogs are just cats with less sharp nails, and cats are just dogs that don't bark.
that makes sense. just wondering if anyone has whipped something up in an emergency, say like finding a kitten late at night
They always start out as blue, but tend to begin to change around 4-6 weeks and can keep changing for months after.
Last picture seems to imply she was going to attack, and lick you to death!
My poodle took care of that with the kitten I found. She was a great mama.
Wow that cat really grew up
You are a wonderful human being.
She is seriously gorgeous in those final two images. Wow.
I'm so glad you found her! :D
Heh. Poop front.
Beautiful story for a beautiful cat
The last picture in the group is beautiful. That strut. Thanks for sharing.
what does one feed baby kittens?
Pics 8 and 15 prove that this is not an actual cat, but a model. Great job on raising a beautiful kitty :D
Great story. And you are a good photog too. Enjoy your lives together!
You must be very proud of yourself
the simple answer would be to just lick the cats anus, take one for the team!
My heart has become liquid now and my brain has shut down from excessive d'aww.
Aww, this makes me so happy! Good for you for adopting a new kitty and making a huge effort to make sure she flourished! She is beautiful!
Nature mixed with the human effect can be cruel and leave a lot of animals left behind and can suffer a cruel fate. Seeing this is truly remarkable knowing that such a dynamic personality gets to...
I have a little orphan I raised from about 12 hours old as well. He was burn in a burning barn, he is by far my favorite cat, not very smart, but he loves me so much! So worth all the sleepless n...
That's awesome! I'm so happy for her
TIL cat's eyes can change colour over time... Also beautiful set of photos and an even more touching story!
This is a beautiful cat!
Did the two cats get any more affectionate with each other over time?
I love tuxedo kitties. Interesting markings on front legs. Beautiful.
FYI: Kittens that tiny need to be stimulated to urinate or defecate. Mom would lick their anus/urethra opening, but if you're raising one at home, a warm wet washcloth or paper towel will usually...
What a sweet cat. How old is she now?
That's a beautiful cat. Kudos for saving her!
I'm a dog person. But this was totally heartwarming. I admit - I got a little misty! : oD
