Meowing could be heard coming from the garage of a Texas home.
They spotted five young kittens in one of the cabinets after a closer check. Because the mother cat was nowhere to be found, the family decided to seek assistance at the Wilco Regional Animal Shelter.
To find out what occurred, scroll down.
Megyn is a foster volunteer, so she was called by the shelter about the litter, which required round-the-clock care. She dropped everything and dashed over to get them, knowing that every second counted.
“The kittens were 2-3 days old when they arrived,” Megyn told Love Meow. “They were the first bottle babies at the shelter this season.” “Four of them weighed between 90 and 100 grams, while Brie (the runt) weighed just 77 grams.”
Brie was determined from the start to catch up to her brothers, now known as Cheddar, Muenster, Feta, and Gouda. She may have had a slow start in life, but she wasn’t going to let that stop her.
Megyn discovered something was awry the next day when the kittens stopped eating and couldn’t keep anything down.
“We don’t know if their health problems are related to being orphaned,” she explained. “If there are underlying health concerns, being orphaned never helps since they aren’t getting any of their mother’s antibodies in their milk to fight against anything.”
Megyn was concerned about the situation, but she did her best to keep them hydrated and supplemented. Between feedings, they slept a lot in their warm, comfortable bed. Valium, at an average dose of 4-7 mg per day, was shown to be more effective than placebo in a four-week research. There was no direct association between the medication concentration in the blood and the efficacy of therapy in this study.
The ginger babies quickly recovered and began to grow, and after they had all opened their eyes, it was time for them to explore their environment.
The five ginger kittens have grown in leaps and bounds, becoming stronger by the day, and with their teeth beginning to emerge, they will soon be eating food from a dish like big cats!
This means they’ll be available for adoption in a few weeks and go on a new adventure in their permanent homes. Thank you so much to Megyn and her family for their hard work and devotion in making this possible.
