    Rescued kitty.

    For the past few weeks, I have been feeding some adult cats and kittens who have taken up home in a burnt out triplex just down the street from me. My main concern are the kitties who are about 8-10 weeks. There are 5 all together.
    When I went last night, there was only 1 kitten in sight. I had seen this one for the first time last week and hadn't seen him since. I was surprised at how close I was able to get to him, because usually the kittens would bolt when I came into the yard. So I put some food on a spoon and put it towards him and he started to eat it. Then I took some more and put it on a piece of wood for him as I went to feed the adults. Next thing I know as I was bending down, the kitty came in between my legs. I started to pet it and then picked it up. I was surprised at how tame he was. Well that did it for me. There was no way I was going to be able to put him back down and walk away. So he came home with me and straight into a flea bath. He was so infested that I cried. He also has a little eye infection.
    I have a vet appointment tonight at 6:45 with him, I will let you know how it went.
    Without further ado, here is the little guy. These were taken with my sons cell phone camera, so they aren't that good, but good enough.

    Posting pictures in next post.

    I can hold him like this and he will fall asleep purring his little head off.


    Sorry this one is blurry, but I wanted to show you the top side of him. Look at his ears. Sooooo cute.


    Look at that sweet little face.

    There is another baby identical to this one with a terrible abscess on the side of his face that I am trying to get. But he really takes off when I come. Unfortunately I haven't seen him for the past 2 days.
    Please keep him in your prayers that I am able to get him the care that he so desperately needs.

    Oh Lorraine he is adorable. You know me and my thing for gray and white kitties.

    He looks like such a sweetheart. I hope all goes well at the vet tonight and I wish you luck catching the other one - prayers on the way.

    So do you plan to add to your crew or find this little guy a home?

    Thank you Jazzcat, Jods and Kim.

    Jazzcat, as of now, I just want to get him back to good health then I will decide what I am going to do with this little fella.
    Right now, hubby is not too happy with me, but he did go into the room today to go and see him, soooooo, we shall see.

    Jods, he is, which to my surprise, very friendly. Last week, he bolted when I came close to him, but last night I was able to pick him up and pet him without any fuss from him.

    Thanks Kim, I will let you all know when I get back from the vets, how it went.

    OKAY, I need a name for this guy people. Any suggestions????

    OH Lorainne! Thank you so much for caring for all those cats. You are an angel for sure! THANK YOU THANK YOU for taking the little guy home at the risk of making your hubby mad I think most husbands have to complain, but inside they are big softies!

    What street is the triplex on where you found him? Maybe we could get a cute name out of the street name or something.

    Lorraine, He's gorgeous! He looks like he's much happier with the fleas gone, and once his eye infection's cleared up, then throw hubby out, and keep him! Just kidding! The name "Cody" jumped into my head for some reason. Hope his appointment goes well, and he gets a clean bill of health. Good job...soon you'll be addicted to rescue...soon you'll be addicted to rescue
