The kittens are coming! Several kittens are in foster homes waiting to get big enough to get their first vaccines, be tested for feline leukemia and FIV, and be spayed/neutered. Then, they will be ready to come into the shelter. They came to the foster homes at various ages and weights. Some were only a few days or even hours old. One litter came with their mother, but most have to be bottle fed every two hours until they are old enough to eat on their own. Two foster mothers do this. As soon as they reach two pounds, they are ready to visit the vet and get started on the road to the shelter. The first litter of six kittens arrived in the shelter and are ready to be adopted. If you are interested in a kitten, visit, call, keep coming because the kittens will be coming a few at a time. They will all be spayed/neutered, microchipped and have their first vaccines. But kittens need a total of three vaccines and rabies vaccine to be safe. The adopter is responsible for any vaccines still needed at the time of adoption. Come to the shelter or call 217-737-4042. The kittens will need good, loving homes.
