But how can this be? What do you think has happened to the kittens? Who would have taken them away?

Yes, could have been a fox or a bird of prey if she had the kittens outside. She should be sterilised before too long, but for the moment she has milk and no kittens to feed. Are there no kittens in the SPA who need an adoptive mother? Just a thought.

The cat

Post by Inkflo on Tue Apr 22, 2014 1:04 pm

The short answer is, we just don't know.
She spent three days here, mostly curled up in my lap with my jacket wrapped around her whilst I comforted her.
Now, she's back in her old routine of just popping down once, or twice a day for something to eat.
I wonder if she has an owner who destroyed her kittens. She searched every room in our house for two days, crying and looking everywhere, so I'm sure they have gone.
I had a message to phone the lady who runs the amis des chats, but now I don't know what to do.

You don't know what to do. Can't you keep her? Obviously she is getting attached to you if she lets herself being comforted by you. It must have been quite an ordeal for her losing her babies...

Do you live in a village/hamlet or isolated? If in a village, there are perhaps neighbours willing to chip in for the sterilisation and vaccination fees? Have you checked if there's a vet who will charge less for an abandonnée? Worth a try.

I would say: keep her!

Little grey cat

Post by Inkflo on Wed Apr 23, 2014 8:20 am

I've made a poster and I'll try and find out if she belongs to anyone first. We don't have many neighbours, and there will come a time when we may be out of the country for months on end, so that wouldn't be fair to her.
I will continue to feed her and if I can't find her owner, we will have her neutered and try to rehome her.

Embarassed Just a little update.
I spoke to my neighbour yesterday, and he said that she knocks on their door to be fed.
As I am feeding her three times a day, and they are feeding her, I really think she's working the system!
Still don't know where her kittens went, but my neighbour says she isn't a stray, although he doesn't know who she belongs to.
So, I'm not too worried that she will starve if we're not around, as she obviously knows how to get a good meal.

Little stray cat update ...
Against my better judgement, our little stray cat that now seems to live with us!
Well, the poor little thing got pregnant again almost straight away after losing the first litter. She has become increasingly clingy with me, and last Saturday, she went into labour. She had two kittens and both were born dead. I was quite worried about her and sat and comforted her throughout. She seemed ok that night, but wouldn't eat or drink which worried me a bit.
I took her to the vets a couple of days later as my mom and I had decided to get her neutered. Just as well I did, because they found a part formed dead embryo still inside her. She would have undoubtedly died if not treated.
She escaped from the cat box in seconds by forcing a gap at the side of the grill. She seems to have incredible strength for such a little cat. So I cradled her on my lap all the way to the vets and back, and she was quite settled, although a bit off with me for the first 24 hours after the op. Today, she's back to her old self, has started eating and drinking again and is curled up next to me on her chair.
So, we are now 216 euros poorer ( neutering, mites control, worming, antibiotics) and she still has to be vaccinated and have her stitches removed. We love her though, and we're just happy that she should now be able to live a more comfortable and healthy life without the attention of every tomcat in the neighbourhood and the risk of more complicated pregnancies. See what a hard life she now has ...

Oh, Inkflow, this really brings tears to my eyes. So she probably had still births the first time as well... She is so lucky to have found you, I am so happy for her and so glad you have kept her and nursed her through the ordeal. She probably wouldn't have survived without you and I am sure you will have a very special friendship together.

Thanks very much for the update and well done, you've done a wonderful thing!

Hi and thank you both. She is now called Smokey (for obvious reasons) and today, she has gone for a walk in the garden. The fresh air will do her good, and tomorrow, hopefully the vet will be happy with her progress.
She is special, and I'm sure she chose us for a reason.
Thank you both for following her story and your lovely comments.

She is happy, but for some reason today, she will not stop mewing and following me around.
The vet sprayed some pheromones in her cat box today, so I'm wondering if it's anything to do with that, or maybe her hormones after the neutering.

Well, she's doing very well and is having her stitches out tomorrow. She licked her plaster covering off, but has left her stitches intact.
Outside sleeping on a garden chair, and follows us around like a shadow. One contented cat.

So happy for her and for you! Well done!

Btw: many vets use dissolvable stiches nowdays, much easier on the cat, as she does not normally have to return to the vet's to have the stiches out and it saves you a consultancy fee.

Doesn't look like ours does Myriam. There are seven bright blue stitches and the vet asked me to go back to day so that she could remove them.
The cat didn't have a collar after the op, so maybe they put that type of stitch in as a precaution against her biting them, which she has just started to do.
Here she is today. She looks at home doesn't she!
