Hi all. My husband and I just took in a 7-day-old kitten that was neglected by its Mom, who is a stray that lives on our property. We are bottle-feeding and hand-raising her, and she should be ready to live in a new home in 5-7 weeks.
She's strong, so far very sweet, makes a cute array of sounds, and is black with a white nose, white belly, and white feet. Looks just like her daddy.
If you are in the NY area and might want to adopt her, please let me know. Otherwise, you may find her in 5-7 weeks in the North Shore Animal League, which is a GREAT place to adopt a kitty. We have 2 brothers from there, which is why we're not looking to add a third to our home.
We're calling her Gloria after Gloria Gaynor's disco hit, "I Will Survive." 3 other baby kittens did not make it through the first week, so Gloria clearly has something special.
