Our home is on a (depending on how you look at it) small acre lot. That back acre doesn't get much use, from us, but the wildlife loves it.
We have seen a family of foxes, smelled skunks, seen several deer and a gaze of raccoons.
Apparently there are more families we didn't know of.
Friday evening Hubby and I where out in the back. We both had been hearing this small noise most of the day. With all the bird babies everywhere, we assumed that's what we had been hearing. As darkness fell, we readied ourselves for bed. We could still hear the noise and Hubby went out to investigate.
This is what he found.
I found a recipe using goats milk to feed it, and feed it did!
It's a ravenous little thing! So cute and tiny. The force is quite strong in this one.
It has been 3 nights of feeding every 3-4 hours. I'm a little tired, but I also feel pretty good about saving this little tike. He has started to purr and that I think that's a good sign and it warms my heart.
Of course I know better than to get too attached because these situations don't always come out as expected.
The garden fence has been put on hold as I work around kitten feedings.
I'll keep you posted as I find time.
Take care, Brandie
