Remember my co-worker who had her cat died?

Funny, we were not talking too much about it for the past few weeks after we felt bad about her lost; when one find day an unexpected thing happened. When she got out from her unit; there was a bicycle infront of the door with a box on top of where the riders would sit; then there were five kittens inside. Those are like 2-3 weeks old with eves still shut off and they were damn too small to be fed with solids. My co-worker took it in and now wondering if she would still keep it as she tries not to have that deep attachment with cats again like what happened to Chu (her old cat who died) but at the same time she's on the dilemma of letting it go as both of the couples and anxious what will happen to those kitties. Right now they're feeding them with milk placed in droppers and some are well, still weak to stand and still lies down in a certain basket or area for themselves only. Let me know your feedback about this; kitten-lovers and kitten-moms. Thanks!

I think it's good for her because she just lost her cat, however, I think 5 cats are too many! I think those would certainly keep them busy for a lot of while! I suggest that they just keep 2 or 1 then give others to other people who would like them. I don't really like pets because they're such a responsibility! Right now, I am in-charge of 5 silver dollar fishes with 2 more (since they bred and had 2 more), 1 shark (small version) and a couple of coy fishes, a love-bird, and a puppy! Mind you, they are not mine! They're my family's and they think that they could be responsible enough but I always end up taking care of them all! Sheez! Too much work! ahhahaha... Have a great MyLot experience ahead!

The black and white kitten in my avatar was 7 days old when we got him. If their eyes weren't open yet then they were under 10 days. Pet stores, at least here in the States have special kitten milk replacement and special bottles for the babies. Oliver is now going on 7 years old, so tell your co-worker it is more than worth it. If you give up after losing one cat you are just depriving yourself a wonderful new companion and a cat a wonderful home.

It is so wonderful that your co-worker is working hard to save five little lives! Not too many people have that much room in their heart to give so willingly of time and love to help out five so fragile lives. She should check and see if someone has a mama cat that has had kittens and is still producing milk. With a bit of luck maybe the mama will take on feeding the kittens. The little babies need the extra nutrients that are in mother's milk rather than just simple human milk. I so hope that the babies all survive! It seems like it is a gift from God to help your co-worker over losing her cat Chu. And, fortunately, your co-worker responded in the expected way, taking in the kittens and trying to take care of them. It also is a sign from God that she can't just shut down her heart to cats, that she needs to remember that they were placed on earth for giving love to their humans and to give humans an opportunity to give love to a living being that accepts love unconditionally. I know the pain of losing a deeply loved furry baby, and making the vow that I wouldn't get another...but as always I end up with another cat (in this case it's four!!!) giving me tons of love and my being able to give them tons of love in return. Give your co-worker a huge hug and thumbs up from me. It takes a very special person to become a mama to five kittens. And, your co-worker is obviously very special!
