The Canada Six: Livestream of rescued orphaned kittens

Call me a sap, but I can use some kittens after a hard day. I’ve been dissed by a philosopher, called a racist for saying that a one-state solution to the Israel/Palestine problem won’t work, gotten an email containing a Biblical quote (clearly to bring me to Jesus), and it’s pouring on my ducks and squirrels. So here, thanks to Grania, are two videos (one a livestream) of six orphaned kittens being raised by Kind Canadians (is there any other kind?) at the TinyKittens Rescue Organization in Langley, British Columbia (Facebook page here).

THEIR STORY: Remember Shacara, Cassidy theΒ #MiracleKitten‘s awesome vet tech who took such great care of him that first horrible night at Animal Emergency Clinic? Well, on June 28, someone brought in six starving kittens they found in a barn after their mama had been killed. Shacara contacted us, and we just happened to have room for them… plus one old Grandpa cat who might be willing to do some kitten-sitting once they are feeling better. πŸ˜‰

These little guys would not have survived much longer, as all six were well on their way to starving to death. They weigh between 215 and 275 grams at 4-5 weeks old, but should be more than double that weight.

They’ve had a tragic start in life, but we are going to do everything in our power to make sure their days from now on are filled with nothing but comfort, love and kitteny shenanigans.

And here is Grandpa Mason, a rescued farm cat with a fatal kidney disease who, given hospice care, has perked up and is babysitting the kittens:

Kittens are better than booze.

    I just emailed Jerry a just-taken snapshot of Vega.

    May I suggest?

    All those reading this with a kitten within reach of a camera should take a picture and send to him to help him with his obvious state of kitten deprivation.

    Cheers,

    In the livestream right now, the kittens seem to be having trouble deciding, for example whether to sleep on the left hip or the right ear. They have no stimulation and are getting bored. They are making me drowsy. Wait. OK now they’re moving. Ha. One bit another which made it squawk.

    Kittens make everything better. This is a fact.

    We just adopted a kitten yesterday. It purrs like crazy, and climbs on us to get cuddled. It even likes having its paws fiddled. It is 9 weeks old.

    This is an excellent stream, and there have been a good number of wonderful rescues over the years, including a lovely abused bengal that gave birth to two awesome kits– they are adopted all together and doing fantastically. There is a certain religiosity to many of the visitors to the youtube channel. Very nice people maintaining a civil and open dialog.

    Watching cats makes me so happy (I can’t think of anything that actually makes me happier – having a cat again, I suppose – my hubby is allergic – thankfully, he’s worth keeping despite this).

    Grandpa Mason made me weepy. So lovely.

    Thank you, Jerry.

    My 4 cats are pi**ing me off at the moment ,on Sunday one of them brought in a little bit of Slow Worm tail ,the thing was still moving .
    Slow Worms are legless lizards ,i thought he had ate the rest of it then i remembered they can shed their tails .
    Yesterday one of them caught a baby bird ,only just got back from taking it to a wildlife rescue center at Much Wenlock i noticed the 2 black cats were staking out the heater in the hallway .
    There is a mouse trap beneath it ,when i fished it out ,there was another baby bird in it ,i kid you not .
    Let it go and it flew away ,don’t think it will survive ,it was a wound under it’s wing .
    Took photos of the Slow Worm tail and the bird in the mouse trap ,i will email them to the boss when i get round to it.

    The kittens in Langley are all asleep at the moment. Doesn’t look all that restful since most of them are using a sibling for a pillow. A pillow that bounces rapidly with each breath the pillow takes.

    Big pile of sleeping fuzz at the moment. And lovely story about gramps.

    Am a little annoyed as it seems that the friendly cat that lived between my apartment and the local rail station seems to have moved (as opposed to accident as a number of removal vans have been around). Not seen her for a number of weeks, and she’s usually out being an attention-seeker. No more morning beard-kneeding for me. 😦

    If you liked Tiny Kittens, you’ll also enjoy Kitten Academy (“Where Kittens Learn To Cat”), which is a kitten foster-home. They have a YouTube channel that features a live feed of the nursery where the kittens sleep and play. The faculty includes several professors who are alumni of the Academy. I believe it’s somewhere in the mid-west of the U.S. The web site is at kitten.academy
