SuzieQ and kittens 4-26-13 ~ Good Morning

As you have probably noticed that I am trying, key word trying, to chronicle the progress of the kittens with their mommie, SuzieQ, but as you can tell I am just a bit behind : )  To play catch up, today I am uploading 2 videos of this cute little family on April 26, 2013 and the kittens are 6 days old. Currently they are solely dependent on their mother but are starting to move around more, just a bit more : )

SuzieQ and kitties on 4-25-13 plus an update on Dorie and Billy ^..^

SuzieQ and kittens are adjusting nicely for their first night : )  The kittens are so tiny and do not leave their mommie so really it is making sure SuzieQ is happy and comfortable in her new surroundings which I am sure is very scary.  Keep in mind she was someone's pet but then for over a year was left to fend for herself along with Dorie and then baby Billy.

I have visited with Dorie and Billy at the old Kings Park Psychiatric center and they were as sweet and friendly as prior to trapping them to be fixed the first two visits.  They allowed me to pet them as before but then the following few days were different maybe even frightened of me.  Now they could have recalled the TNR (Trap, Neuter & Return) experience but why the day I released them and two days following were they sweet as always.  In a few days I will update you on Dorie and Billy's story......
 
Thank you for taking the time to visit and read our updates.  As for SuzieQ and kittens, here is a video of them on 4-25-13 ~

SuzieQ and kittens arrive at their new foster home 4-24-13 ^..^


Hello everyone ~ finally a video as well as a picture of mommie, SuzieQ and her kitties plus a close up of the kittens hugging. They are 4 days old.  They were born on Sunday, April 21, 2013 at the shelter where SuzieQ was resting waiting to see the vet on the following Tuesday.  What a sweet surprise on Monday, April 22 and then they come home to me for fostering on April 24, 2013.  They will all need a safe and loving home ~

Kittie update for the Kings Park Psychiatric Colony ~

Okay so life has been a bit hectic with my full time employment and along with what you will discover when you read this post : )

On Wednesday, April 17, 2013, I was able to trap one of the two females remaining to be fixed (T-N-R) out of this cute little cat colony of  three.  This female is Dorie.   The last female needing to be fix is SuzieQ. SuzieQ  seems to be skeptical of the trap and eludes them but finally success on Saturday, April 20, 2013 - yay!

Now Suzie Q's appointment was not until the Tuesday and guess what happened on Sunday, April 21st??  Suzie Q had 2 kittens!  Too Cute!!   So you see the new additions mommie, Suzie Q and kitties have kept me busy as I am working on socializing Suzie Q so she can be adopted too.  She is a sweet and friendly but not completely trusting since she was left out on her own with Dorie and Billy, the youngest at this location in the old Kings Park Psychiatric Hospital.

More updates on mother and kittens as well as with Billy and Dorie.  Pictures to follow too!  Did not want to keep my followers waiting any longer and the updates will be following within a day or two at most - promise!!

Thank you for following along my journey as I still owe you, my followers, further updates on my original cat colony ^..^
