New member of the family needs a name
Found this little guy on the side of the road and I think that I have to keep him. We looked around for a nest and stayed there for a little while to try to hear other kitties but there was nothing. Then I thought maybe momma was moving her babies and he was the last but his belly was pretty empty and slightly dehydrated. Other than that, he was still pretty bright and lively, screaming his head off for someone to help him.
I took him home and made formula for him with goats milk and he was starving, he took to a syringe right away. Two days later and he is eating formula mixed with a little bit of wet food out of a dish. He just started eliminating on his own today. I'm thinking that he's between 3 and 4 weeks old. The poor little guy just kept crying and crying and I finally figured out that he needed a fuzzy blanket to knead and suck on and now he's content. He screamed so much that I was thinking of naming him Decibel but he's quiet as a mouse now.
Anza the 55 lb standard poodle has decided that she can be his surrogate mommy. She likes the benefit of cleaning all of the kitty food and milk off of him as he gets quite messy after crawling in the dish.
Anyway, I want to give him a nice name if anyone is willing to help.
There will be only one of you for all time. Fearlessly be yourself.
