Well, today i was about to go pick up my kids from school when I heard a cat meowing really loud from under my truck. I looked under the truck, and there was a calico kitten about 8-9 weeks old. Looked skinny, hungry, and was really friendly. I ran back inside and gave her some canned dog food, which was the only thing I had to give to her. I was hoping that she was gone by the time I came back with the kids, but no luck they all saw her and now want to keep her. The thing is I have never been much of a cat person, yeah I like them and had one a long time ago but she was an older cat that I picked up from the streets who later on died from feline leukimia. It does not help that my husband does not like cats and I already have a rottweiler pup, plus I do not know the first thing in litter training a kitten.
I really do not know what to do, my 5 year old has been asking for a kitten for awhile but my husband has always said no. I feel bad though, because since I was her age I always wanted a dog but my mother never let me have one. What if someone is looking for her?? Although she seems like nobody has taken care of her. Any advice ladies?!?!
Update: well I went to the store to buy some food for the kitty, I noticed another under the truck again and when I came back one more so now there are a total of 3 and now that I see them all I think they are much older than 8 weeks. I am almost positive that these are kittens from our next door neighbors cat, which I had to feed while she was nursing bacuse the poor thing was so skinny and the woman was never there . I don't know what Im going to do now with all three they seem really hungry like they have not been fed in awhile. Should I just keep them or what???
