Tiny Prudence, rescued from the street

Post by gbste on Sun Aug 04, 2013 10:11 pm

A kind man who helps with TNR on his street rescued Prudence from the middle of the street.  He realized he'd seen this tiny kitten, and pulled a U turn, rushed back, and grabbed her up as a truck was approaching.  She was sleeping on his lap when I got there to pick her up, but she came awake hissing and spitting.  I had a bottle of formula with me, so we wrapped her in a towel and got her to eat something.  When I got her home, she also ate a little mix of canned cat food/formula/water.  After I cleaned her up, she decided to forgo the hissing and spitting.  I would say she's about 3 weeks old, and very full of herself when she's awake.

She is absolutely adorable! That man is a true hero, braving traffic to save her like that. Is he interested in adopting her maybe?

He already has a cat that he adopted after we rescued her. Missy does NOT like other cats, and she even becomes violent with her people if there is another cat around.

She's definitely a cutie. I'm so glad her savior went back to get her. I'm sure she'll have no trouble finding people. She's feisty and cute. Who could resist?

Pru has had several meals, including two from a dish that included a little canned kitten food mixed in with formula and some water. She's a good sleeper, and wants to eat as soon as she wakes up. She's a good little trooper so far.

She's too little to cause very much trouble. She mainly eats and sleeps right now. She has started demanding her meals in a nice loud voice, though.

Pru had a good day so far today. She peed on me once--maybe she's getting past the need for stimulation to eliminate.

Sure sounds like she doesn't need any more stimulation in that department gbste!

Good to hear she has a great set of lungs on her!

She ate 2 "mush" meals today. She's a little disappointed that she's not allowed to walk in the food dish, but she sops it up with a little encouragement. I'm going to have to upsize her crate in a couple of days. She's better at walking already, so I have been letting her walk around on the floor for a few minutes before each meal. That's a little difficult, as there are bunches of other pets who want to supervise, and she's too tiny to let them interact with her much.

Pru is starting to scratch like crazy during bottle feedings, and she's turned her nose up at the last couple of mush feedings. I'm going to crush up some kitten chow and leave some of that and a dish of water in her crate and see if she'll start trying some kibble.

I don't know how cute the video of her current feeding behavior would be. Funny, perhaps, with her claws going a hundred miles an hour and me trying to keep my fingers out of range.

I think her mom would be weaning her with that kind of behavior. Kibble is definitely in order. (OUCH!)

I've seen a couple of videos on Youtube of bottle kittens doing this.  I've never seen one do it to a mama cat, though. Here's a link, but this kitten is older than Pru.

Just sent the link to that video to my mom. Hopefully their computer will be working so we can see it. It's been acting up something terrible the past few days. Just won't load a dratted thing!

Pru has been spending some time in the big "cat condo" pen I bought this summer. She can move around and watch the birds in there. She has kibble and water in there, but so far she mainly walks in those dishes. I have been getting her to eat some canned kitten food each time I feed her today. I may have to take her to school starting on Thursday so that I can be sure she eats something during the day. The first 3 days this week are work days, so I can come home at lunch and feed her through tomorrow. I have a really big storage closet that she can hang out in during the day there.
