  • Molly and babe

    I'm getting a bit worried about Molly's treatment of her surviving offspring. She carried her (we're fairly sure it's a her) into my bedroom today and after giving the little one a good ol' cleaning she proceded to play with it like it was a toy mouse or something.



    I got a bit worried in case she hurt it. Talk about abusive mothers! I put them both back under the bed and later she carried the poor mite downstairs!! She is now lying on my bed while little Boo (short for Boudicca ) is lying alone under the other bed I'm hoping she'll get the message when I turn the lights off and go back to her 'nest'



    I took some photo's today. If anybody is interested they are at: http://uk.f2.pg.briefcase.yahoo.com/bc/mis...r=/pics&.view=l



    It's my briefcase in yahoo. They are quite large and might take a minute or two to appear

    Thanks HN



    Sweetpea, thanks for that advice It's sad to see a lonely kitten and Molly is pretty good most of the time but she does seem to play rough. She didnt' have a very good start to her own life so maybe she thinks rough play is normal :P



    We've got a tiny bottle and some special cat-milk substitute so if Molly does eventually reject little Boo we've got some back-up I remember having to raise some puppies when their mother died two weeks after giving birth. Sadly all but one of those died but the survivor was about the best dog our family ever had. I'm hoping the same will hold true with little Boo who will be the most spoiled kitten ever

          They are both gorgeous, Misty!!! :thumbs: :thumbs:



          Sensible comments from SP. Just keep an eye on them, but reckon this will be to try and teach Boo to learn the things her mum feels she needs to know. Btw, if you do end up having to hand-rear Boo will already have had a good start with the milk she's already had from Molly....one of mine was hand-reared after the rest of his siblings and the mother all died, and was a very strong cat. Hope all goes well, Misty.

            I hope that things work out - either way, the little kitty will be really well cared for by the sound of it

              They are both lovely!



              Hopefully little Boo will take after their namesake and be a proper little fighter!

                        My daughter came in from work tonight and saw little Boo crawling towards Molly. "Aah", said daugher "she must be hungry" Er....noooo, greedy maybe, certainly not hungry. I've never seen such a tubby kitten!! She's not walking yet but I expect it won't be long before she's everywhere. Still in the 'wobbly head' stage right now :lol:



                        I've got some more pics which I will post in my Yahoo briefcase. Taken when Boo was asleep so as not to blind her with the flash



                        Sending lots of meows of greetings to Lily

                          Bless her little "wobbly head"! :hihi:



                          Glad she's getting tubby, and Molly seems to have forgotten her strange phase with her, and, of course, Lily and I send lots of purrs back, and await the next round of pics

                            Three more pics at http://uk.f2.pg.briefcase.yahoo.com/...=/pics&.view=l



                            I found out how to stop Molly's overactive grooming of little Boo. I fill a dish with her favourite food

                              Misty...unable to access. Got an error message that looked like your briefacse thought it was yourself trying to access it? (Says "there was a problem logging into your account").



                              Glad you've solved the over-grooming problem, btw...food, of course!! Why did we not think of that :P
