Miracle Kittens Need New Home



Bookmark and Share

Forget nine, four must be the new lucky number for cats.

At four weeks old, a miracle kept four area kittens alive.
 
"Their mother was found dead next to them, they assumed it was a coyote that killed it, " said Gail Ventzke, Cat's Cradle Shelter Director.
 
The siblings were brought to the Cat's Cradle Shelter in Fargo.
 
"We were pretty stunned by the condition that they were in, they were emaciated and hair was falling out, which is a sign of starvation, so we immediately took them, " Ventzke said.
 
Even a week and a half later, the kittens still weigh less than 12 ounces each, with Daisy being the smallest at 7 1/2 ounces.

At their age they should weigh about 1 1/4 pounds.
 
"They should be bouncy, furry, happy little kittens and they look like mice, and they were just so small, " said Ventzke.

But, the kittens are making baby steps toward recovery at a South Fargo home, where foster mom, Lori Lang, is helping them to regain their strength.
 
"They were a lot thinner.  They had a lot of bald spots and their eyes were really sunken in, " Lang said.
 
Lang says when the time is right she is prepared to eventually let them go.
 
"I hope that they find a really purr–fect family."
 
Ventzke says she's had tons of offers from adopters, but wants to keep the kittens local.

For now, she is just happy to hear that the kittens are doing what kittens do best, play.
 
And if you are interested in adopting one of some of these kittens, you can call the Cat's Cradle Shelter at (701) 356–7877.
