They are messy, messy, stinky little babies, but they are thriving, and will soon hopefully be beautiful and ready to find homes.

OMG how can you stand it? I wouldn't be able to leave them, snuggling, holding, just watching them! Here's hoping they continue to strengthen up!

The thought that anyone would abandon such Precious Creatures of God is so very sad.
Thank God there are people like you Jen to give these Kittens a fighting chance at life and a Furr Ever Home.

they are just absolutely adorable. do you think you could retake a picture of rain?

good luck and enjoy their youth while you can!

I will get more pictures as soon as I can, right now I am concentrating on keeping Maybelline ALIVE! She is beyond tiny! :( Her little back legs can't even carry her weight when she tries to follow her siblings. And I fear she is not eating enough, no matter how hard I try. Is it too late? :( I think of Smidgeon from a few years back who got to me simply TOO late.

On the GOOD side, Rain and Spring seem healthy, happy, and growing right before my eyes!!!

Please pray for Maybelline.

PT Prayers for wee Maybelline!

Oh gosh - who was the tiny bottle-fed trio with Josh, the little white male longhair who wasn't supposed to make it?

His sisters 'suckled' him too - and he was kept in a carrier a lot, I think. :)

Beautiful kits - and clean for now.

They're even cuter when they're clean!! All of them are adorable, but Spring is just plain beautiful.

I know that Moose, Y.Lee and Ralph Syracuse , Lucas and Oliver are getting together and getting little scraps of meat and fish for the Little Ones to eat and to help thier Friend Jen with those sweet Babies.
And we know that they are in wonderful hands and we are all praying for them.

You got it, Jen!

For all those praying for Maybelline, she and her siblings are doing well. She still has a very weak rear leg (the one that was believed to be broken, but is just underdeveloped) but she uses it to the best of her ability, so it is being exercised.

orangemm

That's good news! Now if she'll just eat a lot more!! Good job, Jen.

I was so busy praying for Maybelline, did I forget the others? Spring died this morning. :( http://petoftheday.com/talk/showthread.php?p=1815836#post1815836

Maybelline and Rain are still with me. Pain is doing wonderfully. Maybelline tries but she is still so tiny and skinny. I just can't lose her too!!

Ans the thing is. Spring was the first to eat on her own. She could usethe litter box on her own. She was thriving. then all of a sudden, she gave up. :( She had no symptoms of a cold, she just wouldn't eat or take the bottle.

I am SO sorry little Spring, I tried, but I failed you. :(

kitimom

I am so sorry to hear of Spring's passing.......You did not fail her. She was called for another assignment with the Kitty Angels.
We here will send LOTS of prayers for Maybelline to be well and eat, eat, eat!!!
Sending you hugs as well. You are so special to take the time to be there for those babies....

jenluckenbach

Maybelline may not make it through the night. :( Although, I have had this thought many times starting LAST Monday, and she survived, I just think she is too weak. I just wanted you all to know and help her passing (if that is God's will) to be peaceful. I'll let you know.

Maybelline made it through the night, but still does not want to eat on her own. I have to force her.:( She is unbelievably small.

Rain, on the other hand, is doing well. :)

I wonder why the little ones do this? What did the vet say before you adopted them?

Why does this happen??? :(

05-15-2007, 09:07 AM
Jen you are doing everything humanly possible for these little ones. I hope little Maybelline pulls through. She is a calico so she has that fighting instinct I just hope it along with all your efforts and all our prayers pulls her sweet heart through.


Come on Maybelline your meowmie loves you so much. Fight for her and fight for you and your brother. You can do it little one.

((((HUGS)))) Jen I wish there was more I could offer.

I'm so sorry Spring has gone to the bridge :(
It's so hard to try to understand why things like this happen.
Sadly,as painfull as they are... somethings that happen in our lives were never meant to be understood for one reason or another.

My prayers and thoughts are with Maybelline.

Hope that Maybelline and Rain are doing well (or better in Maybelline's case). She is a calico, and they are toughies, so she just HAS to make it!!! Come on girlie! You've gotta fight to survive! We're all rooting for you!
