Duncan update: Still no results back from his extensive stool test he did last Thursday but I didn’t have time to wait. He was starting to have liquid diarrhea again. Two days ago his weight was dropping again. With a cat or even an older kitten they’d have a little weight to spare. With him being so small, he has no weight to spare. I took him completely off poultry on Thursday and gave him a seafood diet. The poo started to get firm but he began to get weak and have almost no energy the night before last. He was so bad that I slept in his foster room with him so I could be next to him all night. I think the poultry-free was working on his poo but all that fish was making him sick. Too much mercury? Who knows. Yesterday we started on Pride by Instinct Rockstar's Rabbit Recipe wet food and Orijen Regional Red. Both have NO poultry and no seafood. I have received comments that I’m switching his food too fast and while I agree, cats have sensitive stomachs and I typically do a diet change slowly over the course of 7-10 days, Duncan doesn’t have that amount of time. A kitten this small could fade quickly and die if they lose just a small amount of weight. Today his weight is picking up, his poo is firming up and he has loads of energy! I won’t be happy until his poo is solid and formed and the test results come back normal. He’s already tested negative for all the “common” cat ailments (Giardia, FIV/Felv, intestinal parasites, etc.) and I’m specifically waiting to hear about the test for feline trichomoniasis. I’m praying that we are headed in the right direction. #DuncanTheKitty #fosteringsaveslives #fosterkitten #DUNKYDOODOO #yougotalittlesomethingonyourface #kitten #orangetabby #catsofinstagram #cutekitten

Some moments in fostering can be rough, but moments like THIS is why I keep going. Just knowing that a little over a week ago this trio was living on a busy road, dodging traffic, barely eating and suffering with respiratory infections. Now look at them! Heart...melting. #3TKitties #fosteringsaveslives #fosterkittens #SPAYANDNEUTER #calicokitten #adoptdontshop #adopt

Sweet Tabitha. She’s loving indoor living! I asked her if she was a good girl and she said, “yeah” 💞 #3TKitties #fosterkitten #feralkitten

Handsome little Travis is looking more bright-eyed every day. The antibiotics are working on all three and their upper respiratory infections are clearing up. Travis is the most shy of the group but his eyes light up when we start to play. He loves playing with toys. #3TKitties #fosterkitten #feralkitten

ADOPT ME! Fort Smith, Arkansas - Little Joey has been lovingly fostered by @hari_p_hogeandfam. Thanks to those who donated to Nolan’s Memorial Fund, he was neutered and vaccinated today in Nolan’s honor. He’s 2.5 pounds, sweet and ready for adoption! All his siblings found a home, he just needs a family to call his own. If you are interested in adopting him, contact @hari_p_hogeandfam. #ADOPTME #fortsmith #arkansas #kittenforadoption #spayandneuter

Duncan’s new diet doesn’t seem to be helping much so it’s back to the vet with another stool sample. My vet is going to run a super extensive test. We need to find out why he has runny poo. Maybe it’s all the donuts he’s been munching on! 🤔🍩 #DuncanTheKitty #fosterkitten #ilovedonuts #donutlover #kitten #catsofinstagram #orangetabby #babycat #cutekitten #spayandneuter @dunkindonuts

We sure do love our @sofascratcher around here! They give our kitties an appropriate place to scratch and really do save the sofa! What’s even better is that @sofascratcher gives our Instagram friends 10% off all their orders AND sends me a check for 10% of all sales using the coupon code: MYFOSTKIT10. I use the funds to distribute to other kitties in need. The most recent check I received was used to send several cases of cat food to @poppyfoundationcats here in Las Vegas (see my Instagram stories). They take in and care for special needs and hospice care cats. A win-win-WIN for everyone! #SofaScratcher #catscratcher #SofaScratcherGivesBack #pawsneedclaws #bandeclawing #DuncanTheKitty

Making progress already! Tiffany is feeling better. The antibiotics are starting to perk them up a little. She is even letting me pet her and wants to play some. Tabitha is so sweet and doesn’t hiss when I approach her now. Our little boy Travis is shy and will require the most socializing, but I have a feeling his a softie inside. I love them already. Click on the link in my bio. It’ll take you to my YouTube channel. There I have two videos on how to socialize feral/shy kitties. #3TKitties #fosterkittens #feralkitten #fosteringsaveslives #calicokitten #adoptdontshop #spayandneuter #catsofinstagram #cutekittens #kittens

Their first night ever in a warm, clean bed. Tiffany’s feet are filthy from life on the streets. Poor Tabitha is so thin and exhausted, she can barely keep her head up. My heart breaks but I know their worst days are behind them. What’s worse is knowing how many others are living on the street now, many in even worse conditions. Do you have ferals or strays in your neighborhood or at your place of employment? Call your local shelter or rescue, ask to borrow a trap and bring them into a spay/neuter clinic. Imagine the suffering you’ll be preventing. #spayandneuter #TNR #trapneuterreturn #feralcats #fosteringsaveslives #3TKitties

Tiffany & Tabitha are so thin and their fur is so dirty. I think they’re already liking indoor living. Nothing but love and care from now on! No more dodging cars on a busy road, no more eating junk out of filthy bowls and sleeping outside. #3TKitties #fosterkittens #spayandneuter

The NEW FOSTERS have arrived! Over the last few days I’ve been working on a #TNR job. I trapped a total of 12 cats for the spay/neuter clinic that was held yesterday. These were the youngest three. All three of them have respiratory infections and I just can’t bear to put them back, especially when I have an open foster room. Without going into too many details, the they were trapped at was not the safest for them either. Today they will receive dewormer to kill off any internal parasites and will start on antibiotics. Closest to the camera is Tabitha who is about 3-4 months old. The two in the back are siblings, Tiffany and Travis. They are about 2 months old. Tiffany is the smallest (I don’t have her weight yet) but she has the worst respiratory infection. I’m going to do everything in my power to help them. #newfosterkittens #3TKitties #fosterkittens #fosteringsaveslives #spayandneuter

Please send your well-wishes and love to former foster Pierre (renamed Jack) @brothers_floof. Last week he got sick and his mom has taken him to the vet several times. They’ve done X-rays and bloodwork and they know he’s fighting an infection, but can not pinpoint the illness nor is he responding to antibiotics. His mom made another vet appointment today for a second opinion. I’m going to check Nolan’s memorial fund to see if there are more funds there and send over a donation. I asked her to ask the vet if donations can be taken over the phone directly to them and she’ll let us know. Pierre/Jack was always the biggest, strongest from his litter and it breaks my heart to know he’s sick. UPDATE: Donations can be accepted over the phone for Jack’s care at Southside Vets in Nashville, phone number is 615-333-3655 💔 #GetWellSoon #simonesbébés

Three new fosters are arriving tomorrow. Just finished cleaning the foster room from top to bottom. Duncan just snuck in as the quality control inspector. I think I passed inspection. #DuncanTheKitty #fosterkitten #fosterroom #fosteringsaveslives

ADOPTED! Sparrow & Lula are headed to Arizona now with their wonderful forever parents who flew to Vegas to adopt them. They’ve been patiently waiting to take them home and even wanted to adopt their brother Jonas if would have survived. The girls now have their own Instagram account and we can follow all their adventures @sparrowandlula. Wait until you see all the ramps their new Dad built that they’ll get to climb up and down! #TOGETHERFOREVER #sparrowandlula #fosterkittens Nevada SPCA No-Kill Animal Shelter

Tonight we celebrated Duncan officially being one pound. He was very sick last week and I honestly didn’t think he’d survive. After all the sadness with the recent events here in Las Vegas, a party for Duncan (decorated by @can_do_stella) is exactly what we needed. If you didn’t see his party on Instagram LIVE tonight, I saved it. Definitely worth seeing! #DuncanTheKitty #OnePoundParty #fosterkitten #partyrock #TPparty #kittenparty

This little baby is 1 of the 10 cats/kitten I trapped in the last 24 hours. They will all be going in to the monthly Spay/Neuter Clinic this Sunday. I’ll be at the clinic LIVE at around 8:30 AM. If you’ve never see what happens at the spay and neuter clinic, you won’t want to miss it. It’s VERY interesting and educational. (PS - new foster 😉) #TNR #trapneuterreturn #spayandneuter #calicokitten #adoptdontshop
