My boys and I rescued and fostered three four week old kittens this fall. They were malnourished and flea ridden. We gently bathed them in Dawn dish soap everyday until we got rid of the fleas. We created a mixture of wet food, formula and probiotics to help bring them back to health and help put weight on them. We taught them how to trust humans by caring for them and loving them and then one by one we are letting them go to good homes. It was a lot of work but we enjoyed the experience so much that we are hoping to do it again next kitten season. I urge everyone who has an animal to spay and neuter their pets and please consider adoption rather the purchasing your pets. These beautiful babies got lucky.
