Moonbeam Kitten – My project to make this a children’s book!

I had my sweetest female cat, Moonshine and a Seal Lynx Point Bengal, give birth to her first kitten about 10 days early on June 4 in 2009 and she was as tiny as a little white mouse (she is also a Seal Lynx Point colored Bengal as well and they are also referred to as “snow bengals”) and Moonshine was a little freaked out with her very first and very tiny new baby and she allowed me to help her with it and that was the most rewarding and special experience I think I have ever had.  Because mother’s milk doesn’t come in for a day or two the kittens have been fed in the womb until they are born and need the colostrum they get at first but because this kitten was so tiny I felt she needed milk as well so I heated up kitten formula (actually it was a combination of kitten formula and powdered goat’s milk as each has something the other doesn’t) and Moonshine watched as I fed her baby the formula using an eye dropper and then I would give her back to “mommy” and she would nurse her and keep her warm.  She was so early she wasn’t fully furred in and there was a lot of pink skin and it also showed more than it would with the more common brown spotted tabby marked Bengals.  Here is a photo of her when she was first born.  Isn’t she tiny?

Moonshine the proud mom of the very tiny kitten.

Moonbeam lived and thrived and here is a link to more photos of her in a series I call “Moonbeam Kitten Has A Cow” on a website I am creating to tell stories about the tiny miracle kitten that I took a whole lot of pictures of.
