Rain and sleep deprivation…

So it appears the rain dance worked. Showers are back in action, not that we need it now with just stepping out the door for feed and clean… But we are all very happy to have some water in the tanks anyway.

We have adopted a tiny wee kitten that we have called ‘Mango’. Mango was found on the side of the road with his brother who had already passed away, no mother in sight. At less than a week old, Mango requires feeding every two hours, including overnight so the volunteers are all in surprisingly good spirits considering their lack of sleep. In the past, we have had no luck raising such young kittens as we have had to make up concoctions of milk, egg, condensed milk etc in an attempt to give them sufficient nutrients, but they have not made it. Thanks to a generous donation of a bucket of “Di-Vetelac” baby animal milk replacement, we all have our fingers tightly crossed that Mango will be our first success story from so young.
