i have been meaning to post so much stuff going on in our little rural life here in Florida, but situations won't permit me. lately, hubby and me were dealing with catching up on our yard chores of course because it's already warming up. yardwork, gardening and such are the ones that keep us busy pretty much aside from attending to our lovely little pets.
i have mentioned from my other posts that we have 4 critters running and playing around the yard...we have 3 cats and 1 dog. all the cats are set out free in the yard because i don't want to tie up hubby with cleaning their litterbox. he said i can't clean it since they carry a parasite that can harm a pregnant woman..let me tell you i am not preggy but we are in the process of getting. so he took over with it...happy me lol. but the news is our female cat got pregnant and she gave birth last Thursday to 4 premie kittens. i tried giving her a box to deliver there but hubby found her kittens outside just by our AC. sadly, 3 of them died already when we saw them...and we tried helping the other one live by the way his name was Lilie..it was soo hairy like his mama cat..but unfortunately it died the next day..and let me tell you when Frosty the mama cat delivered the 4 kittens, we thought it's done..but we're wrong she had another kitten that day but afternoon. thanks to my sister-in-law, Tati..she was the one who helped mama cat deliver this one kitten. we named him Pacman because we think he is a fighter---his name is based from a Filipino famous boxer (:
Frosty is a young mama and doesn't really know about nursing and just simply taking care of her litter, surprisingly, Rocky our dog was more concerned. we fed Pacman through syringe feeding or the little bottle my sister-in-law gave us. she also bought this special formula for baby pets and that's what we used. so he was growing, doing better and you bet he is crying louder too.
this morning, hubby woke me up with a sad news that Pacman died. we left him with mama cat last night in my craft room..they like it there because it's warmer there. apparently, mama cat smothered him because she was trying to keep him warm. me and my teary-eyed hubby can't believe it. he was more in touch with that kitten. he would even cuddle it close to his chest to warm pacman. :(
i think we are going to get mama cat fixed since she doesn't know how to be a good mama to her kittens.
but for now i just want to show some cute kitten pictures that i have found online.
i hope you all have a blessed week!
