Today I have some very special photos to share with you! Take a look at these 1 week old kittens!
There are five kittens in total, we believe them to be somewhere between 3 days to 1 week old. There are 3 tabbies, one solid white, and one solid black. Our hard working staff got a call notifying us to a litter of kittens that had just been rescued from the rooftop of a building!
A lady had noticed the kittens on the rooftop of a building under construction from her apartment window. Concerned after not seeing the mother cat return for a few hours, she asked for help in getting the kittens. Once she had all five kittens safe in her apartment, she made a few phone calls. Eventually, one rescue group after another went down the phone chain until a Little Shelter staff member received a call about them.
Immediately, one of our staff members went to go and collect the kittens. Meeting the lady who rescued them half way, the kittens were carefully put into a carrier with plenty of blankets to keep the wee ones warm. Due to how young the kittens are, it was important to get them back to Little Shelter as quickly as possible so they could be fed. Babies this young need to eat every couple of hours.
All the kittens are currently safe and have been sent to foster care where they will have around the clock caretakers until they are big enough to be socialized. We are currently trying to see if the mother is still around. We would like nothing more than to reunite her with her kittens in a place they are safe and cared for, at Little Shelter.
