What a beautiful first day of Autumn. My daughter Katie and her husband visited with us today and a little bit before she went home we took a little walk. A little ways down our road is a stream and one of my sils told me he had seen some tiny kittens near the stream, when he went to look closer they ran off. So we went for a walk to investigate. We are so glad that we did. We found 4 of them all huddled together. They were very dirty and so skinny and small. They seemed relieved to see us and were crying a lot, no sign of any mama cat, we looked around and waited awhile. We even went back down to check again, no mama. Poor things look like they were abandoned. My daughter Katie has brought them home with her and she is taking them to the vet tomorrow. One of them is very weak. As soon as we got them here we warmed up some milk and gave it to them. They didn't seem to know quite what to do with it but they did eventually figure it out. The milk was warm and they were shaking, and one of them just got right in the milk and lay in it. So sweet. don't mind the wrong date. Everytime I change the batteries in my camera I have to update the date and I forget to all the time.
The little kitties are in excellent hands now. Katie has taken them home, called her vet, and she is going to see them first thing tomorrow morning. They have been eating and drinking and Katie said looking all over the place and playing a lot too. They all have little teeth so the doctor said they may be older then we think, just small from not eating.

Sharon-they are so sweet! Do you know how right now I'm glad I don't live near you? I would have brought those little guys home with me, and started repopulating my house with cats. They are just too adorable.
