Awww, black kitties especially grab my heart since they’re so often overlooked for homes!  We have two ourselves (both foster failures, btw).  Hope they recover, and soon!

Firstly I admire you for being able to foster animals. I am a firm believer in ‘don’t shop adopt’! I will not be able to foster, I will end up keeping all the animals. That wouldn’t necessarily be a problem if it wasn’t for a few limitations like space and the all-important finances. We have 5 doggie babies at the moment all but one was adopted, that one is from my previous relationship.

 

Our last adoption was from a breeder actually, due to inbreeding the pup was deaf and we found out at 6 months when we had her spayed and I requested an X-ray she has hereditary hip dysplasia in the left hip and early signs of that in the right hip. Anyway, I am circling the airport a little here. What I mean to tell you about is, when we got her at 8 weeks she was so small and adorable. The person we got her from gave us a bag of food with, as it was some unknown brand and we have our dogs on the best dried dog cubes available to us I decided to wean her of this brand and on to our regular brand. She arrived on a Saturday, the following Tuesday she had her first of four meals the morning, she seemed a bit tired. I didn’t think much of it as she was playing nonstop the day before and she ate so that’s good right. I gave her-her second meal and she ate that too, but still she was just sleeping. On my way through the house that afternoon I notice she was shaking and not looking good at all. I left everything and rushed to the vet (I work from home). At the vet I was told that she had a severe parasite infection and that it could possibly be from the food as there are a few backyard manufacturers of dog food that do not follow the necessary health and safety steps, that there is not much they can do other than give her parasite treatment and a strong dose of antibiotics. That it is a waiting game, I should go home with her and monitor her. By that evening I went back to the vet, she was like a ragdoll in my arms by then. We came back home with her after the vet gave me special food and supplements and more antibiotics. By the grace of God that little body stood strong against the infection and she pulled through. We have had an uphill battle with her, because her immune system was very weak as a pup and we had a few close calls. But I am very happy to say she is celebrating her second birthday today and is strong as a horse!

 

When animals have poor nutrition as babies it could be detrimental, but luckily you intervened and saved them! I will pray for their complete recovery and for strength for you! I would like to thank you for your selfless service to those without a voice! Bless you!

WestCoastV:  Oh my gosh, they are adorable, and good for you for fostering them!  I would love to do that but fear I would get too attached. 

When I was in high school I took home some incubated chicken eggs, which hatched!  One was a tiny little chick that was very weak and getting picked on by the others.  I separated him, put a heat lamp on his box (had to use cardboard boxes since no one expected they would hatch that weekend), and stayed up all night with him, since my parents and I really thought he wouldn’t make it through the night.  Well, I’m happy to say he did, and he was doing well when I returned all the chicks on Monday. 

Hope your little guys pull through and can find their forever homes!
