@Skrim17. No shelters or rescues could take them as they are packed full. Bottlefeeding kittens is around the clock and not for everyone. I decided to keep 2. Mr Grey and Fireball went to the neighbor. He returned Fireball like a defective store bought object yesterday when she had some diarrhea (probably from getting into something at his house). :(

@meh meli. My husband heard them screaming and we found them to be covered in Big Headed ants (Pheidole megacephala). Mr. Grey had the worst of it as I was squatting (and crying) in my neighbor's yard removing them from his paw pads, face, genitals, any part with skin exposed. He bled a little bit from the paws. They bit me too but I am sure glad they don't have a sting as that may have killed the kittens. The invasive ants are a problem in the area as they are even outcompeting the other invasive fireants. The kittens were around 2 weeks when we found them on October 16. Maybe 3 weeks in the last photos posted. I guess around 9 weeks now.

Two week old kittens should be ~4" long and at 9 weeks they should be ~ 2lbs.
They should get some Panacur or Albon and some groups may offer discounted rates for getting them fixed.
Bottle feeding and kittens are not for everyone. Yikes.

bugadrienne - good on you for taking them in and helping them. They're adorable. Not cool about the neighbor returning Fireball. I don't get how people can do things like that...

I agree with Pat, good thing you took them in and are helping them. They sure are cute....and yes some people should not have pets at all.
And welcome to POTN of course!! :lol::lol:

Nice poses.

Silma,
Is that the "can I have some water" look? I like how the details of the face are almost lost.

He has his own water bowl (fresh...I change it several times a day) but for some strange reason he finds that drops from the tap are far better

Ah, btw, when he drinks from his bowl he always puts a paw in the water...does anyone have in idea WHY HE DOES IT?

Cats like what we like.

If they think it was their skill/charm that got them food from the table, they'll eat food they would refuse to eat if found in their food bowl.

Same nutty behaviour here with one of my cats.. Probably 'washing paws and licking it dry'?
