The Story of Kittens
The first thing we did was give them some food (water, milk, and tuna) It has been years since I owned a kitten so I didn’t know if they would eat solid foods (later learned they were about 8 weeks, so they ate fine) and they wolfed down the food like they hadn’t eaten in days. They may not have. Then we gave them a quick bath because they smelled. The bath helped some, but not all the way.
As we are moving in two weeks and don’t live anywhere that we can have cats, much less three of them, there is no way we can keep the kittens no matter how cute they are. So I looked up local shelters for the next day, which is when we had to give them up. So it is sad that we had cute kittens for one day, but happy that they will probably get adopted quickly and find good homes that are better able to take care of them at the moment. The adoption agency gave us their ID papers, so we can call a hotline with the number and see if they have been adopted, and if they haven’t after a certain period we’ll just go and claim them so they don’t get put down, but I don’t think they will stick around long.
So here are pictures of the three kittens:
