We found these two precious newborn kittens at the barn this morning – they appear to be premature. One was under the golf cart and the other was by the gate on the concrete baking in the sun. Both still had the placenta attached.
The kittens are warm and comfy and close to where we found them so I am hoping that momma will return. Maybe their mom was a first time mom and didn’t know what to do or something scared her away. She may have been in the process of moving them because they were several feet apart when we found them. We’re going to look around in case there are others. Please pray that they will be okayed that we can find their momma – we will be searching.
I cut the babies’ cords and cleaned them up. They will be monitored and cared for 24/7. Newborns, especially premies, can be a challenge. The little boy’s name is Aiden and his sister’s name is Alana. Alana is the bigger (but weaker) of the two.
Bob made a very quick trip to the store to purchase milk replacer. They both had a little milk and went to sleep in a warm and comfy bed.
I feel bad for their momma. I hope our cats or dogs didn’t run her away. And I’m glad the donkeys were not around the house last night – they may have hurt the mom or babies. Hopefully, mom will return.
Please keep these sweet little kittens and their mom in your thoughts and prayers.
