How old?

We needed to figure out how old he was. According to the references I was using he would have been around 4 weeks old [he was close to a pound when we weighed him], but I think it was more like three weeks old [he was just so tiny and still needed us to help with everything! --- I do mean everything.]

He is doing great. Eating off the bottle just fine. He actually seems to enjoy the KMR. Luckily I have a roommate who is off work and can take care of him and make sure he gets his regular feedings. [Although I don't think work would mind him in his crate.]

What Now?

The biggest challenge was knowing what to do next. I turned to a yahoo group called Cats and Kittens Discussion Group

They pointed me to a great reference on kitten rescue

At least now I knew what to feed the little guy [they also helped with sexxing the kitten so I now know it is a boy].

We have called the rescue groups in the are and they are all full. So it is up to us to take care of him until he can be adopted [two people have shown interest].

New Kitten Arrives

My neighbor scooped up a ktten from a house he was cleaning out. He's girlfriend's family would not keep it [their rottweiler wanted to eat it and their granddaughter is too young to understand how to be nice to a kitty].

He was going to take it to the Humane Society, I feared for the kitten at the Humane Society since I knew it would require hand feeding and other special needs until it it old enough to adopt. And I knew they would just put it down.

So we took it in.
