A year ago I rescued two runty, malnourished, sick kittens, and I just thought I'd share some pictures of them from the time that I got brought them home to when I gave them to my grandma. The tabby cat, Tammy, is my fave; she was so much like a puppy and followed me around everywhere! And the spotty one is George. He could barely use his back legs when I got him and was incredibly weak. He ended up being a lot bigger than Tammy though. They both had bad eye problems.
The day I brought them home: 100_4875.jpg
A day or two later; wanting OUT! NOW! 100_4901.jpg

Inside my shoes! They actually didn't mind it at all. (This is about two weeks after I got them). 100_5091.jpg
Quite a long time later; Tammy sleeping in the food and water bowls. It was her favorite place to sleep, besides in the litter box. LOL 100_5852.jpg
Silly ole George sleeping. He had passed Tammy up in size at this point. For a long time he was smaller and thinner. Now she wasn't able to whoop his butt so easily! 100_5841.jpg
My brother did this...and they just let him, and they didn't move! I handled them so much that you could hold them upside down like a baby, and they would just sit there on their backs like little ladies waiting for their pedacures while I clipped their nails.
Now they aren't really like that anymore though because my grandparents treat them like they are cats
instead of puppies
. Ha ha. This is the day before I had to give them away. 100_6108.jpg
I surrender!! The day before I gave them away. I had a really hard time for a few days after; I kept waking up in the middle of the night to give them their vet stuff and feed them! 100_5749.jpg
