Default Another rescued baby surprise

Hi all,

I Skyped home earlier this evening and was chatting to my mother when all of a sudden she holds a TINY baby kitten wrapped in a warm blanket up to the screen to show me. I squealed of course! The poor little darling was so small. My sisters neighbour found her in their garden after she followed the squealing and called out. The tiny fur ball came out from the shed and was cold and starving. There was no sign of a mother or other kittens and her husband wouldn't let her keep it. My 6 year old niece was there at the time and fell in love instantly so the kitten went home with her. That was on Tuesday. My sister is delighted to take the kitten in but they had a family holiday booked overseas for the following day so my mum had to come to the rescue and has been minding the baby cat ever since. She took it to the vet because she noticed it hadn't went to the loo in the 4 days she had it and the vet feels that the kitten is only about 3 weeks old. The vet also said that kittens up until around 5 weeks old need to be stimulated to go to the loo as can't do it themselves - hence why the mothers lick them soooo much! (In all the years we've kept cats I never knew this). So now my mum is at home with a warm wet cotton ball cleaning the kittens bottom every couple of hours to mimic the behaviour of a mother cat and it's working fine. The kitten is getting spoiled rotten with a hot water bottle in a snuggle cat bed and is being fed from a tiny kitten baby bottle! It's the cutest scene to watch ever!
My niece has called the kitten Twinkle!

What a wonderful story! Little Twinkle Kitty has now been given the opportunity for a long, healthy and happy life. I'm sure your neice will be thrilled to have her and will shower her with tons of love and attention.

I LOVE happy endings.

P.S. Please ask your Mom to take some pictures and send them to you so you can share them with us.

Awwwww, Twinkle is ADORABLE!! My sister would be trying to jump through the computer to kitty-nap her if she saw those pictures.

How wonderful that your Mom is taking such good care of Twinkle while your sister and her family are on holiday.

You and your mother are definitely my kindred spirits.

I just love Twinkle's precious little kitty face!

I'm so glad that Twinkle found a forever home who loves her and spoils her!
I'm sure your niece is very excited. I love cats, they're my favorite animal along with birds.
I must say I squealed when I saw those pictures!! Twinkle (what a perfect name) is absolutely adorable! So glad she's doing well, looking forward to hearing all about her

What a lovely surprise when I opened this thread, My favourite picture is the close up of Twinkle's precious face
I think your Mum won't want to give her back when the family gets home from their holiday.
Thankyou so much for sharing that lovely story .

Oh I bet she is! I haven't been talking to them at as they are on holidays. So funny I literally jumped when my mum first surprised me with her!

I know she's a gorgeous little thing. I've no idea what could have happened to her though. My family have a long history if adopting strays and injured or homeless animals. The neighbours always come to us if they find any creature in need of a temporary or permanent home

I know I said exactly that to her too!! My parents are so funny, when I was growing up they always pretended not to like the cats but they actually make the most fuss over them! My 14 year old cat passed away last year and there hasn't been a cat in the house since then so it will be interesting to see the developments here although I'm sure my niece will demand her kitten back!!
