    Awww Carolly, your secret is safe with me, I won't tell.....


    You sound like me, I love animals, they are mine to take in and care for ...forever!! I was at a resturaunt today with my friend that has the friends who might take my kitties and there was a stray kitty outside the window and he tapped on the window and the kitty came running and I said "awww, I want to take her home"....he yelled at me that I need to stop that!! I can't stand to see a animal hurt or hungry....

    My boys always tease me that I'm going to have 10 dogs and 10 cats when they move out and I told them, probably so...maybe not so many dogs...but cats...yeah! I have 9 right now!!! And if it were up to me, I'd keep them all!!

    Re: 5 little kittens

    Well, the kittens are 5 weeks old today....and My son is staying at the old house and taking care of them. They have been eating and using the litterbox for about 4-5 days now....and well, my son gave one of the kittens away to a friend of his..... I am just so concerned that it is too young yet....I've never given kittens away before they were about 7-8 weeks old!! Granted, these are REALLY healthy kittens....but still, they could use some more of momma's milk, at least I think so....correct me if I'm wrong.

    I told my son that he needs to check with his friends to make sure its doing okay, because the kitten can come back and be with momma for another week....I think that would be best, but I will have to wait and see what he reports back to me!

    We have homes for all of the kittens, just waiting (well, NOW we are waiting, I had no clue my son was going to do that!) for them to get a bit older and litter box trained really well...the little black and white one is my favorite, he's the only one of the 5 that looked like that...and he would always walk on my feet when I would check on them at the house!!!--he missed me!

    Here is a picture of them 2 weeks ago when we left the house....

    Re: 5 little kittens

    Wendy, cute photo.
    It seems too early to me too so I looked it up just to be sure and here's an offering from one site:


    http://petcaretips.net/weaning_kitten.html

    All About Weaning Kittens

    The best time to separate a kitten from its mother is between
    seven and eight weeks of age. It is at this point that weaning
    has been completed (the switch from nursing mother's milk to
    eating solid food) and a kitten can best adjust to living in a
    strange home with a new family. If taken away too early, kittens
    may have to be bottle-fed by their new families and frequently
    behave badly due to premature departure from the nest.

    Kittens need milk feeding for the first four to five weeks of
    life, so formula needs to be provided for a newborn kitten in
    cases where the mother cat is unable to nurse it. If a kitten is
    orphaned when it's two weeks old, for example, it needs to be
    bottle-fed for at least another two weeks until it can be
    introduced to solid food at four weeks.

    Hopefully your son's friend knows the kitten still needs milk and will not try to feed it cat food. If you can get him back for another couple weeks that would probably be best.

    Thank you for that, confirmed my train of thought as well. I will talk to my son later today....
