My name is Seamus. I am very small, probably about 4 weeks old.
You can see how much bigger the Blossoms are than me. They look like giants in comparison! I am still a wobbly walker, and need to be fed milk still. My foster mum says I am light as a feather. I still have my blue eyes, too.
A lady found me and my siblings in some bushes. She thought we would be a good way to make some money, and took us to sell at the markets. I was the only one who wasn't sold, so that same day she took me to the shelter. Talk about some changes in the life of a baby mancat! I have been in foster with a lady who is a vet nurse for the last week, and today they decided I should be in a home with other kittens.
My foster mum is sad to think of my siblings. I needed a bit of extra care this last week, and will likely need bottle feeds twice a day for about another week. I'm still learning how to get around properly on my wobbly legs. She hopes that they made it.
We would like to say that we hope everyone takes a moment to remind their friends and family that it is important to be careful when aquiring a new feline (or any other animal or bird or fishie, for that matter). People don't always have the best interests of the animals at heart, and will not be looking out for the customer, either. This woman didn't care that we weren't ready to be adopted out into homes yet, especially ones that weren't aware or prepared for baby kittens. Whether someone is looking for a purebred kitty, or looking for a moggy in pet shops, newspapers and adoption centres, they need to be careful about who they chose to give money to. This woman got money for us. She benefitted, even if we didn't. And there is nothing to stop her doing it again, unless people refuse to buy from her.
