Mother cat and kittens


Mother cat and kittens, originally uploaded by dawnkua.

I saw this mother cat and her kittens yesterday as I was out with a friend. As you can see they are just a few days old and extremely tiny - without their mother they'll almost certainly not survive.

My friend who was with me made an interesting comment though. She has a cat but isn't a caregiver and she said to me that she hardly sees any pregnant cats around these days because they're mostly sterilised.

Anyone sterilising this beautiful tortie in time? :)

Such young kittens should not be lying outside in such unsanitary conditions =(

Once, I heard a young girl asking her Mom, why are there so many beautiful cats around?

Actually, there were only 2 sterilized cats when she gave that comment.

Absolutely gorgeous blue eyes, Mum!

She must be a semi-pedigree, Siamese maybe?

Anonymous - I don't really know any caregivers in the area unfortunately.

Anonymous - unfortunately many cats and kittens do live in conditions that aren't extremely sanitary.

lingcat - good thing she said beautiful and not shriek in fear!

d - yes quite possibly some siamese blood in the mother cat.

I think that's one of the cats around my work area. She's semi shy, and we'll be getting her sterelised soon. Its a large area here, if anyone that would like to contribute to her sterelisation, please leave a msg here.

Dawn, hope you don't mind?

Perhaps v you can leave your email address and people can email you directly? Otherwise, sometimes I'm not sure how they will get into contact with you as well. Alternatively, they can email me and I can forward the emails to you.

Hi All

Kitty will be sterelised when the babies are grown. Someone has arranged for the sterelisation, transport and boarding of her.

Thanks all. And thanks dawn for letting me put this up.

v - took your email off since the donation has come in since you might not want it up in public.
