An Unexpected Surprise
On September 9th, 2018 we got a call from a customer in Malibu saying that her front yard was flooded and water was entering her home. We arrived 45 min later and while cleaning up the mess, we noticed 5 baby kittens submerged in the water. Mrs. D ( the customer ) was horrified to find that 3 of them were deceased. She could not care for the newborns and asked us to please help them.
We wrapped the babies up in warm towels and brought them to a vet. The vet said that they were not quite 2 weeks old and weighed 4.5 oz and 4.3 oz and that we were going to need to bottle feed them until we could find a rescue to take them. They gave us some bottles and formula and off we went.
They were not taking the bottle so I researched how to feed newborn kittens and found that dropper feeding was the best for this age.
Needless to say, we are keeping them and will update you on this journey.
