    Yes, I've raised many baby animals. Lots of ducks, geese and chickens at my Grandma's farm. Baby cows at my uncle's dairy farm. Baby birds that have fallen out of their nest. A baby ground squirrel I found in the middle of the road. Plus lots and lots of baby kittens and puppies that have had to be bottle fed for various reasons.
    "We give dogs the time we can spare, the space we can spare and the love we can spare. And in return, dogs give us their all. It's the best deal man has ever made" - M. Facklam

    "We are raised to honor all the wrong explorers and discoverers - thieves planting flags, murderers carrying crosses. Let us at last praise the colonizers of dreams."- P.S. Beagle

    "All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost; The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring; Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king." - J.R.R. Tolkien

    OH my! Let me count. Tons of wildlife and tons of kittens! No puppies yet though. Want to see pics? You can go to the Pet Rescue section and look for the thread on some of the wildlife I have raised and rehabbed. Skunks, possums, snakes, rats (too many times, lol) etc. Maybe I can attach a pic of me feeding River, the kitten I placed a few months ago but bottle fed since she was 5 days old.

    I've fostered a lot of bottle baby kittens and a few bottle baby pups. No experience with any other baby animals really. I did briefly take care of some baby birds a long time ago.

    I raised one litter of kittens from the age when they had to be bottle fed. Sadly two of them were severely brain damaged.

    I tried to hand raise a baby fairy tern (http://www.oceanlight.com/html/fairy_tern.html , http://starbulletin.com/2001/09/07/news/oceanwatch.html) but (s)he got worms very suddenly and died. I did my very best for the two weeks we had "Frick."

    I would love to do wildlife rehab someday....


    Many thanks to Roxyluvsme13 & k9krazee for my great new siggy!!

    I raised a kitten from 2 weeks old when his mother passed away. He was going to come live with us anyways when he was weaned.
    Other than that, I raise and breed chinchillas, and occasionally something goes wrong when the mom can't feed the kits, so I step-in and either help her feed them or hand raise them
