Mews and Nips: Kitten with Unusual Markings is Thriving with Foster Mom

kitten-fever-coat

When Melissa of Tiny But Mighty Kitten Rescue in Cornwall, Ontario was contacted about a tiny kitten found on a sidewalk, she immediately offered to help. She was already fostering a pregnant stray, and after bottle feeding the orphaned kitten for two weeks, the nursing mom accepted the kitten and took care of her as one of her own. The kitten’s unusual coloring is actually known as “fever coat.” Fever (or stress) coat occurs when the mother cat is ill with a high fever or stress during pregnancy. It doesn’t usually have any negative effects on the kitten’s overall health, and the coat will eventually change to show their true colors.

Mews and Nips: Tortie Kitten Insists on Staying With Foster Family’s Son

When a litter of three-week-old kittens was found on a baseball field in the Bronx, Sunny, a local animal rescuer, took the kittens home. There was no sign of the mother cat. One of the kittens, a tortie, quickly took a special liking to Sunny’s son. She wanted to be held and cuddled by him, and if anyone took her away from her favorite person, she showed a hefty dose of tortitude even at her young age.
