Reuben and his siblings were rejected by their mom during the first week of their lives. A young cat herself, she had not developed the maternal skills to care for her kittens. Concerned for their safety, the kittens were removed from the situation and raised by hand.
Salt Spring Cat provided 3 weeks of daily weigh ins, 4 weeks of around the clock bottle feeding, veterinary wellness check ups, neuter surgery, quality kitten food and daily enrichment activities. We provided his adopters with a short video demonstrating how to trim Ruben’s nails so they may continue this training. Each orphaned kitten also receives a special blanket and stuffed animal when they arrive in our care. After 97 days, Reuben has settled into his furrever home along with his sibling Marley.
