Mother cat and her kittens….

** Email query from a rescuer – plea for help **

“So a few weeks ago this cat started “visiting” me, at first i wouldn’t open windows or doors when she was around and I wouldn’t feed her. At night she would cry in front of my window all night. But this one time I did not notice how she ran into my flat and hid under the sofa until the next day. Ever since, she would not leave my flat.
She was very friendly right from the start and wanted to be pet all the time.
My guess is , that the owner abandoned her and she was looking for a new home.
Which is why it would tear my heart out, if I have to just leave her behind in a box.
She is very lovely. On the one hand I was happy the birth went so well and 5 little kittens are well, but then again I got angry, cause they are not my kittens, and it is not my mother-cat but still – now I have to care for her even though I can’t.
The kittens were born last wednesday evening. Most of them have their eyes open and start crawling around, but most of the time they just sleep in a big pile.
I attached a few pictures of the mother cat and her kittens.
Thank you so much for your help. I, at least want the mother cat in good hands.
cause all this is not her fault and she is so, so very lovely!


Attention! – Ringworms!

As Shanghai’s hot and humid summer approaches, it becomes a thriving environment for all sorts of living organisms, in this case we are talking about ‘Ringworms’.

It’s  treatable,  but please pass this message to others, so they can avoid the infection.

kittens saved……..

Rescuer: Alejandra
The story is like this:
‘One afternoon, while going to the supermarket, I saw the 4 kittens running and meowing in the garden of a compound located some 100 meters of the building where I live. They seemed ok, but it was clear that they did not have their Cat Mom with them, since they have their faces quite dirty (if they had their Cat Mom … she will keep them nice and tidy!). Also it was clear that they were just surviving on the food that they were able to find and on the food that some good people was giving them whenever possible. 
I started to feed them that same day and a few days later (on May 5th) I was able to catch “Blondie” through the garden fence of the compound (his siblings run and hide). Blondie came to live with me and since the first day he was very sweet and friendly. As time passed by he became very big and healthy (I took him to the Vet and he got the flea and worm treatment). 
After May 5th I did not see the other 3 kittens, even though I looked for them for several days and I left food for them anyway every single time. 
Then, last saturday (May 22th) the 3 remaining kittens amazingly showed up again in the compound garden … so I took the chance and got the 3 of them in a cardbox!  
When I took them to my apartment, Blondie recognized them and viceversa … the family was finally all together again!!!    :o)
When you look at them now (even though they are the same age) you can tell that one was eating properly while the others where fending for themselves … however, I am doing my best to feed them with the proper food and to keep them healthy and happy! 
Now the four of them eat, play and sleep all the long … it is amazing to see them together again!
They are family!!!’

There are 4 siblings (3 males and 1 female).
Males: Blondie, Tomasino and Maxim
Female: Rosita

Da Xiao needs a new home…

** Update: September 2010 – Da Xiao has been successfully adopted! **

That’s me DaXiao (BigSmall) on the left. My little sister XiaoXiao (SmallSmall) is on the right. She’s gone now.

My Daddy Matthew found me on the street as a homeless little kitten 6 years ago. I was so lucky! I’ve had a wonderful, loving, indoor- outdoor life. And since Matthew travels a lot, I’ve got another loving Daddy Dave to take care of me. My life has been Purr-fect! 
But things change, right? Matthew is more and more ‘global mobile’ and Dave is moving to another country soon. So they’re helping me find a new loving Mommy or Daddy. PAW is my vet, so I’m very healthy, and I get along great with both people and cats! People say I have the prettiest green eyes. I’m a boy, but don’t worry, I’ve been ‘fixed’, so I won’t be causing any problems in that area 🙂

I don’t use the phone or computer much, so please contact:

Matthew 13817899178  or
Dave       13621883252 

I can’t wait to see my new home. I’ll be really good, I promise!!

Da Xiao needs a new home!
