Just getting tidied up after the decorator, (I have to say, John doesn't leave any mess) just a bit of clearing and I hear this familiar sound and I think to myself "Oh no" that's the sound os a hungry and very young kitten!
I went outside to the canopy area of the Roadhouse and there it is! One solitary newly born kitten, abandoned, not by a person but by it's Mother.
I can't tell what has happened exactly but the mess on the chair gave an insight to where the Mother had given birth!
Whether or not she had had more kittens and decided like a lot of cats, to move them to a safe location and forgot to come back for this one or whether she had this one first and then went somewhere else to have the others, who knows, all I can tell you is, it looks as though yhis kitten was born yesterday on that seat at The Roadhouse and the Mother is nowhere to be seen.
I didn't want to move it in case Mummy comes back for it. I didn't want to leave it there without any care. a dilemma.
I took myself off to the vet and he sold me some kitten formula but couldn't advise me how to react but did say that the kitten had little chance without it's mother.
We'll do our best.
Every 3 hours it needs to be fed! it's not going to be easy.
If anyone on the island would like to help please let me know as this is an extremley busy time for us and it's not about to get easier.
If not! No worries, as I said, We'll do our best!
