On September 26, 2010, I got a call from the shelter manager. Another Challenger’s House foster mom had gotten these two little kittens, about four weeks old, from a friend who had found them. They’d been tossed out of a car along with a third kitten. The third kitten was in such bad shape and hurt so badly that there was nothing that could be done for it, and it had to be euthanized.
I was more than willing to take them.
These two were LOADED with fleas when I got them, and so the first night we bedded them down in a big carrier in the blue coop with a heating pad.
By mid-day the next day, the fleas were eradicated, and I bathed them and set them up in a cage in the guest bedroom.
They’re doing well and are pretty healthy. They’re sweet and snuggly and friendly. They’re at that age I love so much, where they’re just figuring out how to play with toys and how to play-fight with each other, where everything is AMAZING, and their favorite thing to do is climb into my lap, purring and kneading.
Update: In November 2010, Starsky and Hutch went to Indianapolis to live with Jennifer and her son Kiefer. They’ve been renamed Percy and Jack, and are doing well!
