Previous news from Sharon's...


Ariel, Amber, and Aimee 
all came in from animal control at about 2/12 weeks old, and have been staying with Sharon in Gifu. Sadly, this group's 2 other siblings, Aria, and Aaron, didn't survive the forced separation from their mother at such a young age, despite round the clock care. Many of the kittens coming into animal control centers have been removed at a very young age from their mothers, and the vast majority don't even survive to be destroyed. It's a lot of work bottle feeding little babies, and not all of them are always able to make it, but it's a rewarding experience. There are always bottle babies in need of placements, if they are to survive and be re-homed, so be sure to contact us if you are willing to train for this kind task.

Christopher, Carrie, and Caylee--whose sibling died at animal control (likely of a lack of adequate heating), were rescued just in time. Once panicked and desperately hungry, they are now playful and happy babies. This group has now moved to Monique's in Osaka.

The newest group at Sharon's is the "B" group...Brenna, Bethany, Braeden, and Benjamin

Kittens need a lot of love and human contact to become well socialized pets.

   

Bathing is necessary for keeping the kittens clean and bacteria free, but they must be kept very warm throughout. It's also important to keep stress to a minimum.
