A couple living in a town near Lethbridge grew concerned when they observed a homeless young mother-cat and her three kittens. The little family was new to the neighbourhood and had taken refuge under a neighbour's front step. The littte mom, now named Emori, had lost part of her rear right leg due to some type of catastrophic injury, making providing for her youngsters difficult, and avoiding predators and aggressive street cats problematic. The couple and the neighbour started feeding the little family, and contacted rescue-groups. Regardless of capacity issues, PAW decided to make a special effort to trap the injured female and her offspring. With the indispensable help of the local couple, the Society was able to capture the kittens and, eventually, their mother. The orange boy – now named Julien – entered the trap first, true to the couple’s description of him as ‘super curious’. His sisters, Klarra and Evelyn, followed a day later. All are in foster-homes now.
Julien may be curious but we are even more curious! It's the first time we have trapped unsocialised kittens of this age where one of them was so open to being handled. He is a lover! He will seek out your lap to lie upon. When you pick him up, he re-positions himself to be as close as possible to your chest. It's really quite amazing (and lovely) how much he wants to be handled. He quickly caught on to how to play with little fuzzy mice and balls and, as with most kittens, loves to chase and stalk a string toy. He races around the house with his sisters and likes to nap with them but is always open for a little cuddle with a human. Julien's going to be a big guy!
Kittens need your time: playing, holding, brushing, nail trimming, picking up, handling, supervising and making your home kitten-safe. If they stop receiving attention, they'll stop wanting it.
