Bubblegum takes babysitting seriously! 😽

04/01/2022

Our work is done! No more hissing! When kittens are this small, getting them used to people and handling is so easy. They are now used to getting food from people and totally relate to positive interactions. 12 hours later no hissing at all. They are still a little skittish, but that will soon go away, once we are with them they happily climb all over you, roll over and purr quickly. They are eating well, even though it is super messy. They all use the litter box perfectly. #babycat #nohissing

Holly’s babies have a lot to say. We have started feeding them to help them get more used to people, they are five weeks old now and all have a beautiful teeth! We thought we had two grey, but one seems to be a super fluffy diluted tortie. They are still shaking a little as they are super scared, but after a little while roll over and love belly rubs. It must be super confusing for them.

Holly’s babies are growing up fast! They are almost 4 weeks old, and starting to wobble around! Holly goes in and out her feral den to avoid us. When she is not in the den, she lashes out at us! She is the best mama cat, and her babies are all fat and healthy.

Working with unsocialized cats can be intimidating as they can be hard to work with. Mama Holly does not mess around. She is not used to people at all, and is protecting her babies. She now comes at us lunging. Playpens are useful as they have many entry points to stay away from her teeth and claws. It does. Not get to be as spotless as we would like, but we do our best in the situation and keep them warm, good food, water and monitor as much as we can #mamabear

Chelsea’s babies eyes are green/blue. So looks like they will be changing any day this week! #floofy #floofycat #floofycatsofinstagram

One week old! Holly’s babies are growing nicely. Holly is eating well, but now lashing out and not hiding anymore. Still keeping it to a minimum and as little stress as possible for all. Cats if they don’t have human interaction in those key 6-12 weeks can be totally unsocialized. The babies even hiss 🐍 already. Once they start wobbling around we plan on playing and cuddling with them as much as possible so they end up being social, cuddly cats!

We know Holly is a good mom as the babies are gaining great weight each day. This was the first time we got to see her feeding them. It was time for dinner, but when we got inside, she did not move. We snuck a quick photo and left her. She must also be getting more comfortable with being here as she is not dashing behind the litter box when the light goes on and the door opens to her room. Giving the babies time to have their dinner, and then will give mom hers. #mamacat #mamabear #caturdaynight

Keeping a watchful eye out on mama Holly’s baby’s each day is always interesting. Fortunately she always goes to the opposite side of the play pen (unsocialized cats always try avoid interacting, however they can lunge at you, so keeping a watchful eye on them is key). If you watch them they are licking their lips which is a sign of fear, not aggression. The babies are all growing well and are healthy. Holly is a great mom and taking great care of them. #communitycat #communitycats #felinefriday

Mama Holly dumps all the blankets into the litter box, and you carefully have to sort though everything to make sure no kittens are getting thrown out! She is still super weary of people but is taking great care of the babies. Trying not to stress her to much, so quick litter box changes, new food, water and leaving her alone to care for her babies in a quiet, warm space. #mamacat #fosteringsaveslives

Fostering feral mama cats and babies is pretty easy, the moms avoid you and just need a place to hide while you replace food, clean litter each day. The best is not to bother them too much and monitor them from a distance. Mom is looking after the babies beautifully. Each morning everything from the play pen is nicely deposited into the litter box for housekeeping! She just keeps her babies and then hides behind the litter box while we remove it all and replenish fresh water, food and replace the litter. They do best in a quiet warm space. Once the babies are 4-5 weeks old they get moved into another play pen for daily interaction and socializing. Right now its more important for mom to feel comfortable and look after her babies. As we know cats don’t like change, even well socialized cats can take a while to adjust to a new place. Its been really cold at night and these are the lucky guys. But we know that so many kittens are being born on the streets and in addition to keeping her babies safe moms still have to try find food #tnr is so key right now to try and put a stop to this craziness and prevent others from suffering. #tnrworks #fosteringsaveslives #communitycat

Two siblings brothers Cleo and Chico were adopted. They were rescued from a backyard and we were able to socialize them. We trapped the rest of the family of unsocialized adults that has made a home there, #trapneuterreturn back to their colony were they are given shelter, food and water. So many kittens that enter the shelters come from backyards and alleys. This is the only way to stop the flooding of kittens every year. #spayandneuter #trapneuterreturn

What happened to Wolf?
Hi, just curious, trapped a little kitty named Ronald, but Ronald has begun to grow, and has a new name, since it is a female....any suggestions on how to calm it down now that it is going into heat before the spay appointment in two weeks? Driving me crazy with noise, and been years since I have been around a non spayed cat, omg......this is the reason why, they should all be spayed and neutered, like ASAP.....

PLEASE SHARE! THIS BEAUTY NEEDS NEW LOVING HOME! LONG ISLAND, NY!🌹🙏❤ Hi everybody, so before some of you jump all over me, please read my whole post! I am searching for a person or persons who would like to adopt a 5 yer old ginger female cat. She is so sweet. The only reason I am taking this step is because I have other animals in my house that almost terrify her. She runs around hiding half of the time from one of my other cats and sometimes one of my dogs. My heart goes out to her, when she feels she is alone with me she will come and cuddle, but then as soon as she thinks she hears any of the other ones coming she hides. I do think she would be happier in a home shere she is the only one or maybe one other cat. If somebody does take her and she doesn't adjust after a few weeks, I will gladly take her back. I am not discarding her, she is not going to a shelter, I am doing this for her sake! https://www.facebook.com/photo/?fbid=5011595928859019&set=gm.2949411381978555
