Just when I thought it was safe to put the baby stuff away.....here comes four more. The shelter called me and asked if I would again take on fostering some baby kittens. These are much younger than the last two. These have their eyes mostly open. Apparently the rancher didn't want them so locked the mom out of the barn. And unfortunately the shelter doesn't even have the address so I can't get the mom to bring her here and raise them.
I've started them on KMR, all but the teeniest one drank readily. There are three girls and one boy. Hopefully they will all survive and find loving forever homes when ready for that phase of their lives.
Born in Downers Grove, IL, I moved to Cody in 1981 after living in Boulder, CO for many years. As I enjoyed the outdoors and spent many weeks up in Wyoming going on horsepacking trips with friends, I decided to move here. I started Ironside Bird Rescue in 1987 after finding an orphaned Starling baby that had fallen out of its nest near my house. One thing led to another and after all these years the facility now has many different sized mews and flight barns for the exercise of raptors so they will be strong enough for release. I live in a 130+ year old log cabin with a corgi mix dog, her mother, a purebread corgi, a couple cats and many birds in a free flight aviary attached to the house. I'm now retired from a "real job". Along with rehabbing birds, I spend a lot of hours volunteering at our local Buffalo Bill Historical Center in the graphics department.
