Upstate SC Kitten Mom is Building a Kitten Nursery — 19 Comments

      • I did look at your pinterest board for furbyhouse again. And if I could adopt one of them, I believe that this time I would have to take in both a lonely, mistreated pitbull and a lonely, mistreated cat. They all need our love, and thank goodness that you persevere because we need you. They do.

  1. What a wonderful idea to help such a wonderful girl 🙂 I would donate money myself but I’m saving as much as I can for the CPL and I’m backwards and forwards to the vets with Mr Jinks which is extra petrol and food and litter all adds up and I haven’t any spare 🙁

    Good luck to her though it is hard work but its even harder finding good homes

    • How is Mr Jinks? It’s every way we turn isn’t it, donations needed and as much as we’d like to we can’t help all the good causes, we give as much as we can but it’s never enough. We have people in financial crisis in our town but even so they still think about the animals in our local shelters and take cat food into Babz office. CP had a large amount a couple of weeks back and now we have a nice lot for Kays Hill cats, it’s their turn. I think it’s wonderful that people care so much.

  2. I think she ran out because putting down a floor is expensive. The glue that holds good tile can easily make a room that size $500 even do it yourself. And running plumbing is expensive if you can’t do it yourself. Once the shelter started killing kitten so young everyone had to jump into action, money or not. As for being overwhelmed, some days I wouldn’t doubt if the shelter gets in several dozen litters. People drop them off at the shelter like they’re going to a dump. Most of the time mama is with them.

    I wish more would do what Kezia is doing. My dream is for the shelter to have a 24/7 kitten room where rescues can pick up day or night. Too many in rescue are working moms who don’t have a chance to get to the shelter until after 7pm.

    I do articles trying to help people raise money for things like this or for covering vet bills. The vet expenses are killing everyone in rescue. Way too many dogs come into the shelter heartworm positive.

    Take a look at my shelter board. http://www.pinterest.com/furbyshouse/greenville-county-pet-rescue-urgent-cats/

    • Thanks for this article, Elisa.
      These beautiful people, so often, go unnoticed.
      I know what that flooring costs and what work it entails.
      And, the plumbing… good grief!
      I hope she knows some handymen qnd doesn’t have to rely on a company.

  3. I admire Keiza very much, it’s hard work hand rearing kittens and heart breaking if one dies but there she is giving them the chance of a good life.
    8 weeks is very young to be neutered, the testicles of the toms and uterus of the queens very small at that age, do they all survive the anaesthetic and surgery? I can understand why it’s done though and truly thankful that they are not declawed at the same time as some rescues do thinking it makes them more adoptable.

  4. I have a lot of admiration for this woman.

    She has to be working her butt off to take care of kittens so tiny that they aren’t even close to weaning age. There have to be special skills that the right special people possess to be able to keep them alive. I have none of those skills.

    I hope she isn’t bombarded with unwanted litters as word spreads that she care for kittens.
