New Arrival: Aldi
New arrival at Bradford Cat Watch Rescue and Sanctuary this morning. This is little Aldi, found in a carrier bag in BD5 on the roadside.
This poor little boy weighs less than 100g and is hypothermic. We are currently warming him up and will then begin feeds every 20 mins for the next 24 hours.
We do not advocate the practice of handing out orphaned kittens to poor mums who are already under such an enormous strain raising their own babies. Not only is this unfair on mum it also carries a huge risk of cross infection. Many feline diseases lie dormant for several weeks or months before symptoms present.
I’m saddened that any poor cat had to go through the trauma of conception, pregnancy and birth. His prognosis is very poor however we will try our very best.
