    I’m just NOT a cat person. They kinda scared me with their chirp/meowing. Now if they were little puppies…

      I’m with you. Puppies are much cuter. Wet kitties just don’t do much for me except remind me that they look like rats, which reminds me of my steelworker days at US Steel in Gary, Indiana, and those rats weren’t taking a bath.

      I know, right?? I lovee cats, & they look adorable, but I’ve never understood people who bathe them. They clean themselves, even at that age!

        Last year one the litters we fostered were infected with fleas and 2-3 baths a day helped control them. We sprayed the house, shampooed and vacuumed the carpets and upholstery daily for while. Eventually we achieved control but it took weeks to get rid of them. The kittens turned out fine and were adopted to permanent homes.

    It takes a lot to get me to turn off my music when I’m working, but I had to do it for that. So cute.

    Well, if anyone really needs a kitten, I have 9 right now. 3.5 weeks old. ADORABLE! I will give them up in July to anyone that wants to pick one up…and keep the rest. 🙂

      Our county animal shelter takes kittens that need permanent homes for free. They get their first shots and spayed or neutered before placing them in the “Ready to go home with you” display kennels. ASPCA has similar arrangements. This is a responsible way to find homes for them.

    We bottle fed some newborn kittens last year. This requires a daily bath when they start peeing and pooping on their own before learning to use the litter box (for the first few weeks you have to stimulate them with a wet cotton ball). Wearing gloves when bathing them is essential. I had a tiny thorn stick wound on my fingertip and it got infected from the kittens waste. It got really bad and required opening the infected area to clean it out.
    Lessons learned
    1-WEAR GLOVES!
    2-Don’t delay getting medical car
