The Taters

ORIGIN: After receiving a call about an extremely sick kitten, Kitten Lady took in a mama cat and her litter of five from Humane Rescue Alliance. Watch the three videos below to learn about Small Fry and her journey to recovery.

JOURNEY: Latke and all 5 kittens (Gnocchi, Small Fry, Yam, Poutine, and Chip) suffered from upper respiratory infections, however the most critical kitten was Small Fry, the smallest of the bunch weighing 1/3 of the normal weight of a kitten her age. After their trip to the vet, Small Fry was also diagnosed with anemia, heart murmur, severe dehydration and emaciation. Too sick to be able to nurse, Small Fry required tube feeding, and then syringe feeding until she was well enough to go back to feeding feeding from her Mama. Small Fry also received subcutaneous fluids for dehydration, and antibiotics for her upper respiratory infection.

ABOUT THE KITTENS: Latke was a great mama for all five of her babies. Fostering a mom+babies is a great option for people concerned about the intensity of kitten care--because you mostly care for mama, and mama cares for the babies! Mama cats eat a LOT while nursing, so she eats several cans of food each day (wet kitten food is the best thing for nursing moms.) But her favorite treat by far is meaty baby food which she receives once a day, too. It's fatty, delectable, and something kept on hand already for sick babies.
