Last Tuesday a couple of the guys where I work found this little kitten under a pallet behind the warehouse. After realizing that whclod of dirt was alive, they brushed him off and called me.
I had already gone home for the day but willingly headed back to work to pick up what appeared to be about a 10 day old kitten.
My best guess is that his ferral momma was scared off by the fork lift and she might have already moved other kittens and he was just the one that got left behind. We have never seen a cat hanging out behind the warehouse and we searched a couple of times for any other kittens. At any rate he is healthy and seems to be thriving on the goats milk we are giving him.
The past week has seen unusually high temperatures with heat index warnings so I thought it was high time I got at least the bucks shaved. Plus I really wanted to see what was under all that hair.
Elijah was the biggest surprise, he has a whole bunch of little black spots all over him. When Ari saw him freshly shaved his response was "Oh wow, he looks so awesome!" Elijah must have thought he looked pretty awesome to because he kept posing for pictures. Cadence was the least cooperative with pictures which could be becasue there was a doe in heat
All three of the adult bucks have exceptionally nice dairy skin as shown by the wrinkles. I love lots of wrinkles except when it comes time for a shave and then I hate them becuase it makes the job that much more complicated and lengthy.
