The foster mom of the new kitten litter to be on the kitten cam (by the weekend I think), wrote to the KittenRescues blog to describe her beautiful new momma.
I found this beautiful kitten crying in my front yard in the penta flowers near our mailbox on July 14th, 2013. I called her and she came right up to me. I figured she belonged to someone in the neighborhood and sent over 80 emails to our neighborhood association. Not one neighbor had ever seen this kitten before. I notified PBC animal control and never heard from anyone. Many in our neighborhood believe someone "dumped" her in our neighborhood.
I have been calling this precious kitten Amber. When I took her to the vet I was relieved that she tested negative for FIV/FeLV. I was also very surprised to find out she was pregnant, since she was only a kitten herself. The vet guestimated that she was about 7 or 8 months old. The vet also recommended that I spay her in the next week which would abort all her kittens. I didn't feel comfortable doing that and am so happy I chose not to.
Amber gave birth to six kittens on the morning of August 11, 2013. She did such an amazing job with the delivery of her six babies. Although Amber only weighs 6 lbs herself, she had no trouble with the labor and delivery. She was very efficient and had all six kittens out in an hour and a half.
Amber is a very sweet, gentle, and laid back kitten, not to mention how gorgeous she is. She is affectionate and enjoys being around people. She is such a loving mommy to her babies, even though she is only a kitten herself. I am so in love with her and I feel so blessed to have found such an amazing girl.
