Our sweet new addition to our home!! She had matted fur, was so skinny and terrified!! We were able to coax her out from under our house with some scrammbled eggs.
We immidiately got to work (I knew nothing about cats so the pet section at our local dollar store came in handy!!)
I used a warm wash cloth and baby shampoo to gently wipe the mud and poo away from her fur and paws. Then brushed her hair with our doggy brush!!
That evening a stray adult cat came wondering by "meow, meow" the kitten called back!! This was her mommy!!! I put 'Whitey' down and they both took off into the night.
Well thinking that was that we went to bed.
The next morning they were back under the house, which really did not sit well with our dogs...
