Meet Ducky

Is this not just one of the cutest things you've ever seen?

I rescued her on Friday, and I took her to Petsmart with me yesterday to let more experienced eyes gauge her age and health. She's 4-5 weeks old. And just for the nifty birthday, I think I'm putting it on July 4. It's right at about 4 weeks, but when she's older a week won't matter, and she'll have a fun and easy to remember birthday. And an annual celebration, lol. She's surprisingly healthy, and her ears are remarkably clean. Other than being covered in bug bites, she's great. Still dirty in spots, she didn't appreciate the short and not heavy-duty bath I gave her Friday night. So her feet and rear aren't real clean still. But she's eating good, playing good, using the litter box. Assuming she gains enough weight, she should be fixed at the September clinic, just over a month away.

Oh, and the picture is her passed out on my lap at Petsmart yesterday. The blue cord is her leash since she didn't want to just stay in my lap, and I didn't want a repeat of the Great Kitten Escapade.

Ducky is the sweetest thing. We call her Ducky because her meow is more of a 'meh' and sounds kind of like a rubber ducky, she's the first of my "NCIS crew", and she was found on a really wet day.

Now to her finding story: She was found in a ditch on Wednesday, which for anyone who lives around here, you will remember was incredibly wet. She was found in a ditch under grass and a tree limb, screaming her heart out (which I can definitely see. She's a loud mouth, lol.) So she's a survivor. Fortunately, it wasn't cold. The lady who found her couldn't find a mother or littermates, so who knows?

If you're interested in Ducky, let me or FuRR know. You can go ahead and fill out an application and all and place a deposit on her if your application is deemed to be a suitable match for Ducky. Obviously, you can't take her home until she's fixed, but she could be "your's" before then.
