  •  Where is the mother? (8+ / 0-)

    It's not clear from the diary where the mother cat is. Did she get scared off by the dogs? She might come back looking for her babies. Best outcome would be reuniting the baby with the mother. Short of that, you should find a rescue organization that is knowledgeable in caring for orphan kittens. I haven't done it myself, but I understand it is a really labor intensive project. If there is a Humane Society in your area, start with them. The one in my area does a great job with orphan babies.

    •  Gone. My woozles bit her and chased her off (8+ / 0-)

      Then they destroyed her nest. It was LOUD. My doughter got our hunter, but couldn't hold her and the Chin/chihuahua mix at the same time. The sheperd? She was bemused. We got woozles inside and realized we had a mostly sad situation. We called animal control and asked them to come out to get the dead pooties. Then, the one woke up and was very upset.

      We used gloves, so we wouldn't get our scent on the kitten, but the mother never came back. The rest of the litter didn't survive. The nest is totally destroyed. The survivor lived because it played opossum. The animal control guy is pretty sure the mother won't come back until tonight and won't take the kitten back.
