Back in late April I posted about Uci ion a post called New Cat in the House.
A lot of you told me to get her spayed but it turned out she was already pregnant when she came into our house and our life. She gave birth in late May. She gave birth not in our house but then she brought the babies home.
One thing that you should remember is the fact that Uci is a stray cat who like to hang out in our house. We do not adopt her as our pet but in everyone in the family allows her to come and out of the house and we always feed her. So when she came home with her babies, we couldn’t allow her to keep the babies inside the house but we provided a shelter for her outside the house. Not much but we make sure they are always dry.
Here are the babies, a couple of weeks old. They were sooo cute and pinky.
Here’s them with the mommy
They are such active and healthy kittens
Their little ‘house’ was right in front of the back door…but as they get bigger, they started to smell. We found poop around their ‘house’. Since the back door is near our kitchen, we had to move them from that place.
Since last week, we moved them to the unused lot next to our house.
Their cardboard house has begun to look bad. I am planning to change it with impraboard, it’s a plastic board. We don’t want them to get wet so everytime the rain falls down, we put 2 umbrella near the box. Uci, the mommy, often comes into the house uninvited and leaving the kitties outside. We often calls her irresponsible mom 😉
We can’t have them as pets because there’s no room for them but we can’t throw them away either, so that’s the best we can do. Give them shelter and feed them daily.
However, I always love animals…they are just too cute and adorable. I fell in love with this little guy since the first day I saw him.
I wish we can have him as our pet, but we can’t 😦 and I can’t take him to my dormitory because they don’t allow pets that can move around the school. It’s okay for turtles as they stay in my room (even so, it took few days convincing the head of the dorm to say yes).
Since I know I can’t have him, I haven’t named him yet. I don’t want to get too attach to him. But can any of you refuse him if he is this cute:
He played with my nephew and when he licked my finger, my heart melted. I adore him so much.
I really really wish I can have him.
For now, they can play freely in front of our house (we never let them inside) and they are always happy and active.
You can also see them playing in a video I uploaded in instagram (yes, we activate our instagram again 🙂 ) > here
In order to prevent Uci from giving birth again, we are going to mix her food with birth control pills. Sorry we can’t afford spaying her, it’s too expensive here and we are not sure if she can be put in a box to bring her to a vet. Some said that the pills work, so we hope it’ll also work for her.
Please don’t judge us badly because we simply can’t give them more than what we can right now. If I have my own house I would have taken one of them.
We haven’t decided what we will do with them later but for now we look after and feed them.
I will post some close up pics of the cats on Wordless Wednesday 😉
I shared this at Mischief Monday where the mischief is on the fact that I can’t adopt them.
