Well, first of all, Runt is ill. He had a high fever today, and we took him to the vet. If it had gotten any higher, he would have had brain damage. The vet gave him something to take the fever down, and gave us some antibiotics. He's pretty sure it's bacterial with how quick it came on and how high the fever got. He's already feeling better Thank God for antibiotics and a kickin' kitten
Pretty Mama and babies:
We kept them around until they were 11 weeks old. We wanted to keep them all, but realized it was not feasible. The original plan was to keep Pretty Mama and 2 babies. During the weaning process, we let PM mingle with the other adults. She stared them all down Looked like she was going to be queen of the roost. Then, we let her meet Phoebe, our CH baby. It went well the first time. The next time we were letting all the adults mingle, Pretty Mama attacked Phoebe That don't float around here. So, we took PM and two babies to our local shelter, it's a good one. We ended up keeping Runt and Piggy. Lyle aka Bubby is already taking to them. He's our mister nanny
PS. Runt's not so runty anymore He's got hair, a collar, and is about the same size as Piggy.
