Teeny Tiny Kitten Revisited

It has come to my attention that many people find this blog by searching for "teeny tiny kitten image". I wondered why, so I searched myself and lo and behold, found this photo of Peanut, our first newborn as the first thing Google finds:

Here he is with the Big Hairy Dog who actually found him on our walk in October of 2006:

So I thought I'd go next door and take a picture of him now, which I just did a few minutes ago:

(He's a little camera-shy.)

Peanut lived with us until he was about six weeks old, and now lives next door with Amy, Steve and Maddie (who will join us sometime in May!). He is now a happy, healthy (and fixed) adult cat. It is very hard to raise a newborn kitten (I've done it successfully twice - see the post of March 13, 2007 for our other success story who now lives happily in Southern California), so if you are faced with this situation, get as much info as you can. I've posted my winning recipe for kitten glop on the left hand side of this page in case anyone needs it.

Most of you know that we foster kittens for the animal shelter during the summer. Kitten season will be in full swing in just a few weeks, and I'm dreading it as much as I look forward to it. Things have been crazy here lately, but rest assured that I made sure that there was a space for the kitten cage in the new mud room.

Fix your ferals! I'd love it if the animal shelter never needed us again.

On this date: In 1970, Apollo 13 was launched.
