Please join me in remembrance for our Star Kit for today, Cleo. She was 16 years old from California.

Cleo

Miss Cleo died a few weeks ago. She was 16 and lived a long, full, loving life. She was the sweetest and most protective cat I’ve ever had. Such a sweetie pie. Very independent and yet very loving. One for the cuddles if she trusted you (and if she was tired :)). I remember when I was a kid that my brother and I would go on walks and she’d follow us to make sure we were OK and safe. Cleo was an indoor cat for a little while because we (my mom, my brother, and I) were afraid she’d get hit by a car. She managed to push out window screens in order to get out to the free world. She was a character. <3. She loved us all so much, especially my mom. She knew who took care of her. We all did, but my mom was special because she was a mama to the kitty mama of the house. Cleo always came running when she heard the sound of our car pulling up to the house. She had a little bell on her collar so we could always hear her coming. I loved and still love her.

Please give a warm TDK Caturday welcome to today’s Star Kit, Bagpuss (Baggy). She is 3 weeks old from Pattaya, Thailand.

Bagpuss

We run a small shelter for cats and kittens here in Pattaya, Thailand and have posted a few kittens here in the past. 2 weeks ago whilst Sandra was feeding some of the local Soi (street) dogs near our house a young Thai couple pulled up on their motorbike and asked her for help, they showed her a small brown paper bag, thinking it was food for the dogs she looked inside only to find this tiny mite staring up at her, they had found it all alone by the side of the road, she told them to quickly take it to our house.

Bagpuss

I was in the garden when I saw the couple coming to the gate, what a surprise I got when I looked in the bag too, they thanked us for taking the little one and I rushed the crying tiny tot to the kitchen, a few minutes later she was hungrily feeding on Goat’s milk via a syringe, we guessed her to be around 10 days as she had her eyes open but only just. Since then we have been feeding her every 3 hours night and day and have now her in a nice cage where she can stretch her little legs more easily. As you can see she has lots of toys and a litter tray that she has not quite mastered yet, she is gaining a lot of weight and this morning weighed in at 189 Grams.

If you would like to follow her on her journey with us and see if she can find a loving new home when she is old enough please look at our “cats4youinpattaya” website, thank you all there at the “Daily Kitten” , Paul, Sandra and the cats !!

Would everybody please gather round to welcome today’s Star Kit, Xeno. He is 9 weeks old from Oregon.

Xeno

I bought him off of a woman on Craigslist who claims he is a tabby! But his alien like features may point otherwise.

Please put your paws together and welcome our latest Star Kit, Poppy. She is 12 weeks old from Co Meath, Ireland.

Poppy

Poppy’s mum arrived at the rescue centre pregnant with Poppy (calico) and her 2 siblings and accompanied by the kittens from her last litter, a male and pregnant female. Only 2 of the 8 kittens survived and Poppy was the only one to totally escape illness (i.e. from the usual problems of living wild such as viruses and inter-breeding).

Poppy

She stayed in foster with her little sister, Daisy (grey & white), who has cerebellar hypoplasia, in order to help her find her way around the everyday cat things which are difficult for her. Poppy and Daisy are now happily settled in their forever homes!

Please give a warm Caturday welcome to our latest Star Kits, Miss Wawa and Miss Ruffles. They are 15 weeks old from Ojai, California.

Miss Wawa and Miss Ruffles

Our friends inherited a cat and her 4 newborn kittens when they moved into their new home. They didn’t know what to do with the kittens so I told them we will take them when they are weaned. One kitten disappeared unfortunately. They wanted to keep two and let me have one. I told them I have to have two since littermates make best friends. And the lone kitten will have its mama. The kittens were petrified of people. The kittens were not used to people but Mama cat is. We had to use a cat playpen as a cage to trap the kittens by luring them with food. The Mama cat went into the playpen to eat and her two kittens followed in. The yellow jackets were really bothering the mama so she stepped out and we closed the doors of the playpen. The kittens went ballistic when they realized they were trapped. We transported the cage to our place and set the cage near us so they can be familiar with us. We kept them in the cage for two weeks. I feed them, touched them, hand feed treats, and took them out individually to cuddle them. Miss Wawa was the first one to purr when she sees me. And she loved to cuddle. Miss Ruffles took a while to warm up.

Miss Wawa and Miss Ruffles

After two weeks, we left the cage door open while I was feeding them breakfast so they can come and go as they please. Miss Wawa took off before eating and disappeared. Once Miss Ruffles realized her sister was gone, she also took off. They didn’t look back. I was heartbroken. We live in a very rural area with many wild animals and I was worried. They didn’t show up for dinner. Then, the next morning, both showed up for breakfast and each meal afterward. At each meal, I make a point to touch them and hand feed them snacks so we can bond. After a week, Miss Wawa started to be a lapcat! My dream. Miss Ruffles is getting better about being petted.

Please join me in putting paws in the air to welcome today’s Star Kit, Missy. She is 4 weeks old from L’isle Jourdain, France.

Missy

I heard her crying and found her under a car in a carpark, covered in oil and scared. She was scared to come to me but in managed to get hold of her and get her safe! I took her to the vets to get her checked out and to get advice on what to do.

Missy

I’ve decided to keep her and over the next 8 months we are sorting out everything required to get her passport ready for my move back to Wales in April!
