AG - I absolutely loved this pic.  It reminded me of when one of our cats looks up at me like this...then I sneak off to the cupboard an get some treats for them...the "soft" ones, or "the good stuff".  LOL 


Except for memorial to Yellow, the pictures are recent and taken at the Kitten Rescue NO Kill shelter in Los Angeles. They have a live cam and I watch the kitties play, eat and grow. It helps with my grieving over Nino.  :emthup:

There has been some drama as Binx (the black one) and Boris (the Russian Blue) got very sick. Einstein and Serenity were under the weather too for a few days. Bane is the strongest of the Group. Touché is still separated as she grows due to a herpes ulcer but she will soon join the others. These kittens were abandoned. Somebody put them in a box and left it in front of a pet store in Burbank that called Kitten Rescue for help.

I suspect they lost their mom soon after birth and may have missed the vital colostrum needed to fight infection. They were in bad shape. Binx and Boris had eye infections, they all had giardia. After nursing them to health as well as possible, they were put on view at 4 and a half weeks (Sep. 22, 2014).

A week later Serenity and Einstein came down with calici virus (there are hundreds of variations -but kittens do better than adult cats which die quickly from it). Then Binx and Boris became gravely ill. Binx was hospitalized and had to have entubation and pure oxygen for a while. A large amount of mucous had lodged in one lung and he was dying. A q-tip was used through a scope to clear the lung passage. He made it, thank God. He is now out of danger, home from the hospital and eating and growing stronger along with Boris.  Enjoy!
