MORE KITTEN THINGS (QUICK UPDATE + LOTS OF PHOTOS)

At my last update, all four surviving kittens were alive and on their way back to being alright. This morning they were all alive, fat and happy, and sure put up a struggle when they had to receive their injections of subcutaneous fluid which is a great sign. They're strong and I think they've got a shot at making it.

Instead of just mourning the loss of the kittens that didn't survive, I've decided that I want to share some photos of the small but impactful lives they did live for over a week. To be honest I can't tell which is which from the very early photos, but I hope you all enjoy them.

The gentlest, sweetest dog in the whole world! Not pictured: running around our yard like a maniac with unripe peaches in his mouth because he thinks they're tennis balls. It's seriously adorable.

This one has now fully opened her eyes and is an absolute fighter. She's chubby, too, which means she has a good chance of making it. She opened her eyes after only seven days which is kind of surprising and she has beautiful (temporarily) blue eyes.

That's kind of it for now. Keep sending them your well wishes and our team will keep doing their best to keep these guys (well, girls, only one is a boy!) on the up-and-up. See my previous posts on how to get involved with local rescues as a foster parent or just to help collect supplies!
