Can anyone home a kitten? Aug 31, 2010
At the club where I do watersports, they are inundated with kittens at the moment. They get fed and watered by the staff, but they are soon to move to a location and al the cats will pretty much be left to fend for themselves.

If anyone could home or foster any of these cats/kittens please let me know, or if you have any suggestions also.

i've wanted a kitty for a while now. i even got offered a few, but they were too old. I had kittens before and in my experience the younger you home them, the better. I'd like ideally a female, 3-5 weeks old. a kitty that started eating by herself, maybe using the litter tray and so on, but if I have to bottle feed, that is also fine.
if you know of any such kitty abandoned and in need for a home, pls let me know. I already have toys, food, a comfy bed, all I need now is the kitty to sleep in it:)

Hi raidah! We miss you!

You should check with Al Barsha Clinic near MOE, because sometimes people bring cats to them who need a home. I got my second cat there.

Chocs, if there is a colony of cats there you can likely get Feline Friends to arrange to collect them for catch, sterilize and release. The cats may not all have a home, but at least they won't keep making hundreds of babies that will suffer on the streets.

er Raidah, please note that kittens should not be taken away from their mother until they are at least 8 weeks old. You won't find one that young, nor is it fair to have one that young as they still need their mothers milk.

You could always try your local chinese but I wouldn't imagine they'd be interested until the kitties were around 1-1.5kg either! :)

hey hon, I've been around actually, just not very active. while at work, hands are full, I hardly ever even check my mail. when at home, I try to relax and stay away from the laptop.

i did check the one behind MOE and they did not have any kitties, can you believe that? that is good I guess.
bf just left the house, I told him as he drives he should keep his eyes on the side streets and if he sees a kitty, grab and bring it home :D

That's sort of how we found our first one - he was hiding under our car after sleeping there during the night. He was starving and I could see his bones. He came up to me and liked being held, so I knew he had been in someone else's house before and wasn't totally feral. It was probably a case where their cat had kittens and they just turfed the unwanted kittens out. We took him to the vet as soon as possible and his blood tests came back negative for feline HIV and rabies. We gave him deworming meds in case he had worms, vaccinations of course, and flea treatment because he did have fleas. After he was 6 months old we had him neutered. It is sometimes a challenge to "parent" this cat, because he's domestic but still has a bit of a wild streak in him, but we love him very much! Good luck finding a kitty!

Al Barsha vets had a kitten looking for a home when I was in there last week. Did you have a look in their book on the reception?

I was also thinking that they had to be a little older then 5 weeks, not that I know that much about our furry friends
