We interrupt this Compassion in Fashion blog for this special bulletin.
This abandoned kitten of approximately 8-10 days old was rescued when his mom moved the kitten’s siblings from the safe haven in our garage following the discovery of the little litter.
The stray cat birthed the the kittens on or around Saturday/Sunday of last week. The kittens were discovered during a routine garage cleaning this past weekend and placed into a cozy clean box with fleece blanket lining. On Monday, August 18, mom was spotted in the box with her kittens; however, mom and two of the three kittens were missing on Monday evening when the homeowner (my husband) returned. Without the warmth and care of his siblings and mother, the kitten shivered and mewed for aid.
When the mom cat returned twice without retrieving the kitten, he was moved to a safe, but undisclosed location somewhere inside this compassionate compound. Chewbacca or “Chewie” as he’s being called has been treated to regular bottle feedings of kitten formula, bum wiping to encourage necessary urination and oodles of snuggles as well as gasps and squeals from an adoring, albeit small, crowd.
"Meh," said Rusty, 13, the compound’s dominant male marmalade tabby cat, who then wanted to climb into the cozy kitten bed once he’s curiosity was satisfied. "It was killing me not knowing, but now…let’s just say ‘I’m good’," he said.
Chrissy, the queen of the domicile, silently licked Chewie’s face a few times before returning to the evening meal of Friskies soufflé.
Little Chewbacca is currently resting comfortably on a bed of cruelty-free polyester fleece. We now return you to your regularly scheduled fashion Tumblr.
