We haven't had foster kittens for a couple of months here and I was having kitten withdrawals. A couple of weeks ago our daughter called asking if we could please take this tiny little kitten that had been found at our son's house. My daughter-in-law found this little kitten almost frozen stiff in their yard so she brought her into the house and laid her on towels on zip-lock bags filled with warm water. Our son-in-law went and picked the kitten up from them (my son is allergic to cats so they could not keep her.) We met our daughter and her husband halfway and picked up the kitten. She is adorable. She was maybe four weeks old at the time and I was afraid that she might not make it. But, she took to the bottle right away and is now eating semi-solid foods and growing like crazy. She was 13.1 ounces when we got her and she now weighs 1 pound 2 oz as of tonight. We named her Emma Lea - she has two "M"s on her forehead so I wanted a name with two Ms in it.
Just look at the beautiful mackerel tabby markings on this little girl!
And look at this adorable little tummy!!
I have an old alpaca slipper that our foster kittens always love to snuggle in. Emma loves it, too!
