    DH found these six little cuties yesterday. You can't tell from this picture, but they were so dehydrated, they would have all died if he hadn't of found them when he did. Three of them were on their way outta here when he brought them home.
    The Three needed to be fed with a syringe. First thing I gave them was a little warm sugar water. Then DD went and picked up some kitten milk + moist kitten food and I feed the three the milk through a syringe, the others just lapped up the milk and food from a plate. After I fed them the next thing I needed to do was get them warmed up. Poor babies, they were so cold so I put all the kittens in my warming throw blanket, Every few minutes I would check on the weak kittens and move them around. They slept in the warming blanket for a few hours and I'm glad to say they all made it.
    Hubby asked around and someone said that their Mom was a feral cat. You can tell that these babies are feral too. They don't hiss at my DH and I cause they know we're their meal ticket [​IMG] But I think in time they will get use to all the different sounds and other people beside DH and I holding them.
    We believe something must have happen to the Mama cat, because you can tell that she took great care of these babies while she was able too! When their older, I will contact a Feral Cat Group and hopefully they will help me to spayed/neuter. Then to try and find nice homes for them. OK here are a couple pictures of them still in the warming blanket !!

    Thanks guys, Yes I must say I did find a keeper for sure in my DH. [​IMG] I know that a lot of people would have just given up on these little babies. When something like this is brought to my attention, I have to do all I can to try and save these little critters. I think your right insiderart, I was thinking around 5 weeks too! No, the one that is hiding he does have the same coloring the others do but just on his head and tail. He was one of the really weak ones that I had to feed with a syringe.
    They are all doing great, everyone is eating, drinking and enjoying the kitty life they have now! I'm not really a cat person, but I'm sure having fun with these babies! What more could a girls ask for...Eggs in the incubator, chicks [​IMG] in the brooder baby kittens and the wild birds are hatching [​IMG] babies all around me.
    Life is blooming in my nieghborhood!!! [​IMG]
