Blind Kitten Survival

Grandpa and I have been doing everything humanly possible to save this tiny kitten since she was born, by feeding her with a little eye dropper, and constantly washing her little eyes.

This tiny little kitten is already about 3 months old, but is almost the size of a 1 month old kitten. She's so tiny and fragile; she fits in the palm of your hand. I'm keeping her inside the house, but she's terrified when Panchito and Jewely start barking at her. She just doesn't know that they wouldn't harm her for the world.

I've actually lost sleep with worry about this tiny kitten, and today I just couldn't take it anymore, so I called my boss and told him I'd be a little late. I checked the telephone directory for a vet, because own vet is on vacation. I found one, and took the kitten to her. The vet told me that she just couldn't understand how she was still living, because she should have died a long time ago. I was very happy when she told me that I had been doing a great job in keeping her alive and well. I had to tell her that the credit mostly belonged to my Grandpa.

I took these pictures this morning of Grandpa giving her the medication, and rubbing the ointment over the eyes. As you can see, some of the strays I have, are looking on a little worried!!

I've already taken out the trapper, because I have an appointment with my vet to have the last of the adult cats fixed and micro-chipped. It's such an exasperating and aggravating event. It's going to be close to impossible to catch that ONE, because the rest of the 20 something cats have been fixed, the chances slim to catch her, because I'll be trapping the ones I don't want to trap! But I'll have to do it, because I just can't have anymore cats!

I can't help but be embarrassed that Grandpa still refuses to wear the nice clothes I've bought for him at the 2nd hand store, where I buy my own. His refusal to wear more presentable clothing, instead of those horrible rags, reflects badly on me!!

There are so many KIND HOMELESS SOULS roaming the streets that desperately need a home. How I wish you would pick one up someday to share your home and life with! He could very well turn out to be your Guardian Angel!

Grandpa giving kitten medication

These 2 kittens were born on the same day.
See how much smaller one kitten is to the other?

Look at the worried look on the Mama's face!!
The other cats started gathering around Grandpa
to see what he was doing to the kitten!!

Look how tiny and boney she is. She can barely reach the water pail!

This is what Grandpa and I have been doing everyday since
these kitten were born; washing all 5 little kitten's eyes,
because of goop that accumulates on a daily basis.

Good luck with kitty.. Sometimes it is amazing what someone/something can survive...
Jul. 30th, 2007 09:32 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I have been amazed by this tiny kitten's refusal to die. We humans have much to learn from our little 4-legged friends!

You never cease to amaze me... maybe we need to start calling Grandpa, Dr Dolittle, he looks as if he has such a loving touch with that kitten.

You take such good care of God's creatures.
Jul. 30th, 2007 10:27 pm (UTC)
Daddy, you're right! Dr. Dolittle would be the perfect name for Grandpa! :o)

God's beautiful creatures are so helpless; God wants us to take care of them for Him.

God bless you and your Grandpa for taking such excellent care of that kitten.
Jul. 30th, 2007 10:29 pm (UTC)
Thank you, my Darling!
Jul. 30th, 2007 09:53 pm (UTC)
You truly have a pure heart.
Jul. 30th, 2007 10:32 pm (UTC)
Thank you Dave. How I wish I didn't have a heart, because it pains me more than you'll ever imagine when I see an animal in pain, or a homless person out in the streets with no one, or nowhere to go.

I still have to reply to something you wrote. It's gonna to be fun! ;o)

You are a living angel. I sure hope your kitten will make it.

Thank you. We'll continue doing our best to save this kitten. I'll keep you posted on her development.

It looks like you and Grandpa are doing great work. The animals
and decent people thank you. Remember you still have 8 of the 9 lives
to go on the kitty (small as it is you may need them)
Jul. 31st, 2007 02:24 am (UTC)
I hope so, Dave!
Jul. 31st, 2007 03:22 am (UTC)
Grandpa seems to be in much better shape. Healthier and handsomer, it appears!
Jul. 31st, 2007 03:39 am (UTC)
I'm glad you saw it, too. He doesn't stutter at all anymore. He is now a man who walks with pride and good self-esteem, because he knows he's greatly loved, needed and appreciated by not only me, but by my animal kingdom! :o)
Jul. 31st, 2007 03:23 am (UTC)

so the sweet soul is genetic, huh?
Jul. 31st, 2007 03:43 am (UTC)
Yes, and filled with tiny hearts! :o)

You are so sweet, and that kitten... well, all of the cats, are so adorable. And that is so sweet of grandpa too. He is a good man. I am glad you found each other!!

PS- That eye ointment works wonders. We got some for one of our kittens here on the farm and her eyes cleared up within two days. She looked like a different cat!

Thank you Sweety Pie!

I don't know why these last 5 kittens weren't born too healthy. There were problems with their eyes from the very beginning.

One of these days, I'll post a picture of the last 5 kittens, who are now adults. They were so beautiful.

I'll keep you all updated on this tiny miracle kitten!

You're right! Today when I put the eye medication on the kitten's eyes, they looked much better. The large ball is coming down, but there isn't an eye to save.

You do, too.

I must repay them for adding so much happiness to my life.
Jul. 31st, 2007 07:31 am (UTC)
Good for you and Grandpa!
Aug. 1st, 2007 12:23 am (UTC)
Thank you!

Awww. You and grandpa are angels to kitties
Aug. 1st, 2007 12:26 am (UTC)
Yes we are, because they bring so many smiles to our live.
Jul. 31st, 2007 01:36 pm (UTC)
I don't think he looks poorly dressed. I think he looks comfortable. It don't get no better than comfortable.
Aug. 1st, 2007 01:46 am (UTC)
He does. He insists on wearing those old ragged, and hole covered shirts. I have some really nice ones for him that are very comfortable.

It upsets me very much, because those that don't know me, would think I'm a cheap skate who doesn't want to spend a penny on him.

He does keep his room immaculate, just as he keeps the whole house and yard. He won't stop working, and it angers me, because I want him to relax and just watch TV.
Jul. 31st, 2007 04:38 pm (UTC)
Aw, thank god for people like you. We seriously need more of you around!
Aug. 1st, 2007 12:18 am (UTC)
Thank you! More like you are seriously needed in this world, too!
