Got a call last evening from the adoption coordinator. Some construction workers found a newborn kitten at their site Monday, probably born the day before. Laying there all by herself. (A dilute calico, so highly likely a girl.) A worker’s wife nursed the kitten (and did a great job) and worked the phones until she found us. Did I think Molly might accept another kitten?
Probably. Usually. Little Micha joined us this morning and Molly instantly started cleaning her up and then nursing her…didn’t give it a second thought. Or if she did, she didn’t share it with me. So Micha now has a couple siblings in Morgan and Maggie, and a mom to feed her, a warm den to sleep in, and hopefully a happy life ahead. She’s probably about 3-4 days younger than her new siblings, but who worries about a few days. She’ll catch up in no time. At the moment, she’s about half the size of Morgan, and 1/4 the size of butterball Maggie.
