The animal shelter said they didn't take kittens that young. So I brought all 4 of them home. They were so tiny, their eyes were still closed. I had to feed them with a dropper, and rub their tiny bums to get them to go poo. My then-infant son was (finally) sleeping most of the night, and I was getting up every couple of hours to feed these little kittens!
If we weren't already chock-a-block full at our home here in Toronto, both humans and pets, I'd bring this new kitten back with us. I like the fact that she adopted my husband as her human. But the neighbours who have taken her are really nice, so I'm sure she'll be in good hands.
I have gone through the feeding thing several times myself. I have lived in my neighborhood for more than 20 years. A few months after I moved here I found 2 tiny kittens behind my apt. and that started it. A couple of times neighbor kids have brought me kittens that they found. I'm not a "people person" and prefer the company of animals so it's no problem.
