Well, the last couple of days have been quite hectic as I have adopted two new kittens recently abandoned by their mother. I was taking a walk in my neighborhood mid afternoon and saw these two kittens being attacked by soldier ants. They had bitten their paws and my friend and I decided to pick them up to pull the ants off. These babies were probably three weeks old at the time and since the mother acknowledges me and my friend as trustworthy I thought it would be okay. I thought wrong. I waited for a couple hours and came back out and saw the mother was at a distance with the kittens whom were meowing their mouths off. I wasn't quite sure what to make of this so I decided if the mother did not go to her kittens by tomorrow I would know she has rejected them. So a day passes and the mother does not go to them. I decided if she were not going to them then I would persuade her. I did and she attacked them as they approached her. I couldn't believe it.
That's when I decided to adopt them and bring them over to my house. most of the kittens which were already there were the same age so they accepted the two just like Pooh. So now three days have passed and I'm feeding them the best I can, slowly introducing cat food as well as bottle feeding. It's a long process, but it's working in my favor.
I'm thinking of buying food for kittens as I only had adult food for the mother and the other male cats, Johnny and Jerry, whom are tolerant of their current situation. Looking for support here as well as advice from you guys.
