This morning, as I was sitting with Carter, LuLu, Dabby, Sanibel, and Forrest, the call came. From the Deliverance Temple, subsidized housing in South Richmond, cat central for the homeless ones. Small kitten found, eyes shut still, crying all night. It took them an hour to bring him over, I agonized...but he was in okay shape I think. Not too thin. He's the one in the middle here. Mother isn't too interested in grooming him, but accepted him on a sink-or-swim basis. I took sterner measures, and tube-fed him the six milliliters which is his stomach capacity , 5.8 oz. He's about a week old. 'bout time to feed him again...wiped his nose, said a prayer...good wishes are most welcome! He orients strangely, not toward the mother. May just be bad sense of smell from the congestion. Will see.!
