I was telling you last week how I rescued that young kitten. Gypsy has now integrated the family. She is doing really well. She did not eat much at first, but I progressively managed to get her to eat full feeds and now she eats away. I still bottle and syringe feed her but she has started eating from a saucer. She is getting stronger and now goes walking around. She also grooms herself, which is great at her young age. I brought her to the vet today and he said she was in good health so I feel a bit more peaceful. We are starting to get into a routine but she still takes up a lot of my time. She needs a lot of comfort so cuddling times occupy an important part of the day. She is really affectionate and sometimes I have the feeling she is grateful when she looks at me. She chills out against me and starts purring; this is delightful.
I felt really lonely that night I rescued Gypsy (and wrote the previous post). She did not look the best and I felt a bit helpless (my three cats were not helping me much!). I am so glad she has grown stronger and now looks like a perfectly healthy kitten!
Gypsy on the first night drinking a few drops of milk.
280 grams of cuteness!
Bottle-feeding her is not an easy task and can take a lot of time. At first, she would even fall asleep while eating!
Just asking to be loved…
