HOW OLD ARE THESE KITTENS?
Would you be shocked to know they are the same age?!
These kittens are from two different moms but are both 5 weeks old in this photo. The kitten on the left was born to a mom who has seen a vet, is current on vaccinations, and is well fed. Other than not being spayed (yes, we agree that’s a problem in and of itself), the mom cat is in excellent health and had 6 healthy babies. The kitten on the right was born to a mom that has lived outside her entire life (as far as we can tell), has likely never seen a vet, and was eating whatever she could scrounge up for herself. This mom is in so-so health and had 6 sickly babies. Two of her babies failed to thrive and passed away. The rest, clearly, are under weight and have had multiple medical issues in a short period of time. Both of these kittens illustrate an important point: PLEASE spay/neuter your pets!
