Sorry, no photo. Miss Molly was integrated with a mom cat and her 5 kittens. They are maybe a day older than her, and much bigger, but she’ll probably catch up. The shelter folks described the process: have the mom and her kittens chill out in one of the large cages for an hour or more, remove mom cat, add Miss Molly. Let Miss Molly cuddle with the other kittens and pick up their smells, add mom back and see how it goes. Everything apparently went well, but the foster person will be keeping close tabs on Miss Molly and her new mom. There is still the antibiotic to help keep the wound from getting infected, but other than that, she should be able to blend in. Her new siblings are 3 black and white kittens and 2 calicos.
Just got a note from her new foster family:
Miss Molly is up to 100 g. When I put her on the scale she fussed and Creedence came rushing over, picked her up off the scale, and took her back to the den. I think she’s been adopted 🙂
[Credence is the mom cat]
