Conspicuous By His Absence

Au trying to clean off that spot
Au crawled under a car last week and picked up an oily spot on his shoulder. With the rapid response rate of a professional salesman, our neighbour handed over the new shampoo he has devised to test out on our junior fuzzy. Since then Au has been conspicuous by his absence on sunny mornings. But we'll catch him. And we'll post him having his bath right here on this spot!

PS Here's Au trying to clean off that spot.
PPS Katz Tales will be in the print edition of the Star Weekend section this Saturday!

Au is so clean. My boys are a dirty bunch. They gets dirty and do not bother about cleaning it. The gals are more conscious about their apprearance and cleanliness.

anonymous, you should bring the mother and the kittens to a vet immediately and ask for advice. Hand-feeding newborn kittens are not easy.

Anonymous, Sharlene is right, you should take the cat mum and the kittens to the vet to find out exactly what's wrong. If she's a housecat who has been innoculated, chances are it's a small problem. Otherwise, it's probably bad news as there is so much cat flue and other nasty stuff going round.

Some thoughts: at one month, kittens can last a day or so without milk from mum but they are so fragile, you can expect to lose one or more even if you can fix up mummy cat.

And if the vet can't help, you have a choice: you can try to bottle feed (a job that requires feeding with special milk every two hours and lots of tummy rubbing to make sure their insides are working) or if you don't know how to do this then the kindest thing is to put them down. Otherwise tehy'll starve slowly which is a terrible death.

Losing cats and kittens is a sad business. Let us know what happens?
