#rescuecat #PrinceHarrison is sweet and gentle, seems a little sniffly today, and is afraid of the garbage truck. #cat #catsofinstagram #catsofpittsburgh #adoptdontshop #savealife

Our newest little baby is adjusting okay.. (see previous post for details) from spending time with him all day I'm guessing he's more like maybe 6 weeks old rather than 4. โš ๏ธHow do you know if a kitten still needs to be pottied/stimulated?โš ๏ธ I've had a little litterbox in there with him all day, he has eaten some wet food, drank a little water and lapped up a good amount of KMR, but hasn't gone pee or poo yet. He is very hissy and is old enough that he bites quite hard, when I tried to give him a flea bath he FREAKED and for some reason scruffing hasn't been working too well, it's like there's barely any skin on the back of his neck.. So I'm wondering if I should try pottying him tonight OR should I wait overnight to see if he pees or poops by himself?
.
Also worrying that he is lonely, if he had siblings then he's prob never been alone before and if no siblings then he prob hasn't left his momma's side until like today, still feeling so guilty that he is separated from his momma.. I wanted to get one of those snugglepuppy things with the heartbeat but $40 for a stuffed animal I cannot afford right now, we are taking him to the vet prob tomorrow if they can fit him in, we would very much appreciate any donations toward the vet visit and/or the snugglepuppy (or any suggestions for a homemade heartbeat stuffed animal thing?) I'm just afraid he's lonely and in a new scary place and I can't be by his side literally 24/7..
.
ANY advice on the pottying/stimulating? Tips on handling a bitey hissy feral kitten in general? (When I do anything that makes him nervous or scared he flips out, but as you can see in the vid once I have him cuddled in the towel in my lap then he's chill and accepts pets. But like getting him out of the cage is a hissapalooza, and trying anything further leads to the scratching and biting)

I think Mama Kitty is enjoying her freedom the kids not constantly trying to get to her. Some peace and quiet has done good to help her settle in more.

HELP HELP HELP SOS this little baby kitten and its mom were in our shelter/feeding area in the backyard, the mom ran away and the kitten fell into the window well so we had to get him out.. momma did come back to the gate one time when the kitten shrieked at us when we first got her, but then momma ran again.
.
We want to trap momma (using baby as bait method) to keep them together BUT we have absolutely no idea if there are other kittens out there. I don't know what to do so PLEASE TELL ME WHAT TO DO. Honestly this morning I saw them for a second in the neighbors yard (not their pets 100% dont worry) I couldve sworn I saw two sets of kitten ears, but on the other hand idk if momma would really just come to our yard with this one kitten and leave others somewhere else..? But who knows PLEASE HELP. Should we release this kitten and like hope he finds the mom or she finds him or what is the right thing to do??? He looks like maybe 4 weeks old..

Meet Chives

Chives is a 7 week old male who will ultimately be searching for his forever home in the coming weeks. He is a talker and is enjoying the perks of an indoor housecat life. We are currently accepting applications to adopt. Our application can be found below.

https://www.merlinsrescue.org/uploads/1/1/3/0/113068651/merlins_adoption_application.pdf

We have lots of kittens that will be looking for homes as well; therefore, if you are looking for something particular, send us a message.

this is our boyfriend, Bacon! we spend long hours at the window staring and chatting. It all stemmed from our mutual love of birds! Unfortunately, we can not meet in person because Bacon has FHV-1 and we do not. Bummer. Sometimes forbidden love is more enchanting, anyway... โ€ข #tabbycattakeover #weezenbean #bacon #forbiddenlove #catsofpittsburgh #catsofinstagram #windowcats

With kitten season in high gear and rescues bursting at the seams, here are some tips if you come across a litter of kittens.
It takes a village and an army, but with community education, involvement, and support, we can make a difference.

Snowballโ€™s (and Casperโ€™s, but not pictured) ears, nose, and toe beans always get super pink as the weather starts to warm up!!โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ’– he is also shedding a ton and unfortunately as a result - giving his brother hairballs. Casper does most of the grooming - he grooms himself and Snowball๐Ÿ˜ต

What does one do in a hammock? Well, if you are Miss Smudge, you chase your tail ๐Ÿคท. If you are Miss Cosette and Miss Fizzi, you cuddle up in the smallest of the hammocks ๐Ÿ’œ. #sisters #littermates #kittylove #kittens #kittensofinstagram #adoptacat #adoptdontshop #catsofinstagram #merlinssafehavencatrescue #catsofpittsburgh #rescuecats #rescuecatsofinstagram #fosteracat #fostercat #pittsburgh #pennsylvania

What else does one do in a hammock? If you are Miss Smudge, apparently the answer is chase your tail up high lol.

Shout out to Toni for the fantastic kitty hammocks! ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ #adoptacat #adoptdontshop #catsofinstagram #rescuecatsofinstagram #fosteracat #merlinssafehavencatrescue #catsofpittsburgh #rescuecats #kittens

Pretty Livvy loooooves the bed now! After like 7 months of choosing to only sleep on hard floors, she has discovered the bed and made it her own! ๐Ÿ˜ She's been making biscuits on the bed too, we've never seen her knead before EVER so this is all just so awesome! ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ’•

Omg ๐Ÿ˜ƒ we have been APPROVED for our 501c3 tax exemption! We are officially a 501c3 nonprofit!
.
So excited to contact all the stores and gyms and hotels nearby to ask for donations (food, litter, old towels and bedding that gyms/hotels are gonna throw away, etc).. we've still never received a single donation yet so really hoping this helps us get some! Any donations would help us very much, we have a whole colony to neuter (like 15 cats) at $35/cat, vetting for the in-house crew, and general daily care/food/etc for our 10 in-house and all the colony kiddos really adds up.. I will make an amazon wishlist, in the meantime though paypal.me/RadiantAnimalRescue or Venmo @RadiantAnimalRescue.. even a dollar would be appreciated! And now we'll even be able to send you a donation receipt for tax exemption since we can do that now!!
.
(Finally a bit of good news on top of basically our landlord saying we have til monday morning to get all our cats out of the apartment, we've been working on making our new house liveable and are almost done but could have really used another month before moving, now we have to have the upstairs 100% finished by sunday night so we can bring the cats and all our important belongings and start living here.. at least the cats will have the whole upstairs to run around as we finish the downstairs, but still the landlord is just changing rules on us all of a sudden which is really annoying. Sooo this 501c3 approval is a nice small beacon of hope among this shitpile of stuff that has been going wrong for us lately. Love you all! ๐Ÿ’•

Need some input from some people more experienced than me please! I'm trying to figure out if this cat is pregnant or if it's Blackie who gave birth like 2-3 weeks ago.
.
1. Nipples are HUGE. I could see them from my hiding spot like 8-10 feet from where she was. Her fur seemed clean and dry though like from the two momma's I've cared for their fur was often like wet from babies feeding and would dry kinda wavy, you know? This could be irrelevant here though, idk. 2. She was ROLLING AROUND on the grass and this little 12x20" concrete pad in the grass! This cat's personality seems 100% different from Blackie's, Blackie was REALLY shy and skittish, she would just come eat, quickly, and be on her way.. never even thought about rolling in the grass or even laying in the grass, never just chilled in the yard like this girl. 3. I wish I had been able to get better pics, I know these pics idk if she looks preg at all but in reality her stomach is def hanging down noticeably. I said to my husband "either this one's pregnant OR possibly just loose skin hanging post-birth if it's Blackie"..
.
Could the loose tummy skin post-birth keep hanging down a whole 2-3 weeks after giving birth? It wasn't like that at all for the two mommas I've cared for.. And I was trying to google images of "cat nipples during pregnancy vs after giving birth" but didn't have much luck finding comparisons.
.
SECOND HALF OF THIS POST IS IN A COMMENT, length limit got me..
