(EDIT - since only parts of this post are being circulated, I want to tell everyone up front there are six kittens, all healthy and rescued, and 5 days old as of 4/18/2020. if you would like to help support them, consider checking out my patreon, commission page, or ko-fi. we are fostering the kittens until they are 6 weeks old, and then will be locating homes for them.)
okay, so today has been an absolute wild ride, but I wanted to make a post and share what’s happened with everyone here, because it’s kind of a big thing.
I went out with my mother this morning to get some Necessities from the store. on the way back to the house, we found one of the outdoor stray cat’s we’ve been feeding, Dahlia, on the side of the road. she’d been hit by a car and hadn’t made it.
as heartbroken as we were, there was a bigger issue.
four days ago, Dahlia had a litter of kittens in the stormage ditch just off the side of our property.
pictured below, the ditch
it’s about twenty inches around, and twenty foot long. the far end of the tunnel is crushed and inaccessible. the kittens? fifteen foot into the tunnel.
below is a series of pictures of me, crawling into said tunnel.
second post with the rest of the story to come.
