Kathy’s Kitties – Help Wanted!

My neighbor, Kathy, found their 4 kitties who need help because she also found their momma dead. These kitties are about 4 weeks old and just starting to eat on their own. They need some TLC! Is anybody looking for a kitten? If I didn’t already have 12, I’d take these two gray/Siamese marked kittens in a heartbeat!!!

So many times people ask me about kitties and I never know of any – now there’s 4 kitties who desperately need a home. Kathy and her husband spend 4 months in the winter in the south so there’s no one at their farm to take care of the cats and that’s why they need to find these guys a home.

Anybody local who could help? Or do you have a momma cat nursing kittens? Many times the momma will allow orphans to join. Can you let me know in the comments? I’ll be mowing lawn today but will check the comments often.

    Mary I would be willing to take the kittens and love them and either keep them all or eventually find them great homes. Honestly they will probably never leave thre farm tho lol

    1. Sandy in Indiana

      Heather, You are a wonderful person to come to the rescue of these sweet babies!

    2. Kathy Rayhons

      Heather are you interested in the two tabby kitties left? They are eating well but still need tender loving care. I had told Mary I was looking for an inside home first but haven’t been successful yet. You can email me at Kathy@rayhons.com

    3. Kathy Rayhons

      Heather I found a home for them last night. I had not heard back from you and this family wanted them right away and they will be indoors, have lots of kids to love on them. Thank you for your consideration.

  2. Peggy S

    Oh, wow, Mary!! Sounds like the problem is solved. . . Yay for Heather!
    How great this is!!

  3. Kathy in western NY

    Heather you are an angel!!!! I honestly feel there IS a special place in heaven for those who protect and care so gently for animals who need us.

  4. Angie from Baltimore

    Heather you have my vote as being a very kind person. As I live in Baltimore I don’t quality and my 13 year old rescue wouldn’t be raising her paw. But they are adorable.

  5. Lois Ann Johnson

    We are all so grateful for Heather, who offered to adopt the kittens. They are adorable! I would love to have a kitty again, but two things: I am very allergic to cats–AND my dog (Bailey) would not like it one bit. Did anyone have much damage from last night’s storm? I just had a large tree branch come down but otherwise, not much. The hail sounded awful in the middle of the night! Poor Bailey is afraid of storms (thunder/lightning) so she slept in my closet. That is her little “hide out” during storms and Fourth of July.

    Mary– I just saw this post and not a half an hour ago, I found out the kitten i was planning to get from my niece has been killed by a wild animal— I was planning to get the kitten in aweek or so. Could I please have one of the siamese ones? I’d love the one with white paws. The kitten I was going to get had white paws….. If Heather wouldn’t mind? I would have it as a house cat companion?

      1. Karla T.

        My husband is allergic and will only allow me to have one cat. He is allergic to other stuff too, and takes allergy medication every day anyway. He knows how much I love cats, so will allow us to have just one. I live 2 hrs away, I am willing to hand feed. Hope this helps.

        1. CountryThreads Post author

          Karla T – oh, I’m so sorry he’s allergic because you could have these two pals. If I can’t place them, I’ll get in touch again. If I can keep them together, I’d like to do,that. They’re so little they need a body to sleep with!

    1. CountryThreads Post author

      Karla T – asking for the second time – will you take both Siamese?

      1. Anonymous

        If it were up to me Mary, I totally would take them both, but I need to honor Rick’s wishes. He likes cats too, but two would probably put him over his threshold. I understand if you can’t split them, but oh I would love it to pieces if I could have one.
        Especially since I got the news today the one kitten I have been waiting for is gone.
        Breaks my heart.

        1. Karla T

          Not sure why my post came as anonymous, but I wish I could have them both, but Rick (hubby) could only tolerate one. If you can’t split them up I understand. I hope you can, cuz I would spoil him/her beyond words. ,KarlaT.

        Paula – she posted it days ago for you – you’ll have to go back and find it in the comments.


    I can take all 4, I live in Southern MN and am willing to drive but can’t get them till Sunday.

    1. CountryThreads Post author

      Donna Wyatt – will they be outside cats? They’ll need hand feeding for awhile – I have to find somebody willing to do that.

      1. Donna

        Yes they would be outside cats, I can hand feed them thats not the issue. We have done it before. I;d keep them in the house till they are bigger, We have a huge population of hawks and eagles in the area. They would be protected for awhile. I have a quilt class today that I am going to, otherwise I’d drive down and get them today. Going to try my hand at paperpiecing. Hope I can get the concept. I want o make some of those cut little houses and coffee cups. ~ Donna

        1. CountryThreads Post author

          Donna – I don’t know what to say – I hate to provide two meals for the hawks and eagles!! Could I wait a bit to see if somebody would take them as indoor cats?
          I find paper piecing hard to “think backwards” – maybe Connie could give you some pointers. Where’s the class?

          1. Donna

            yes that’s fine, I would have them inside but would have to let them out once they were bigger. I don’t want any of the birds of prey get them either, in the country, you know, no guarantee’s.

            Paper piecing was thinking backwards for sure, but I go the project completed! Going to try the little pincushion next!

          2. CountryThreads Post author

            Donna – I don’t mean to judge here – actually it sounds like my cats and they’re all indoor/outdoor cats. Let me check with Kathy and I’ll be in touch with you again. Where was your class today?

          3. CountryThreads Post author

            Donna – good morning! There was a message to me from Kathy that she wants you to have these kitties and we’ll all just pray the hawks and/or eagles don’t get them – i surely didn’t want to string you along – knew you were gone yesterday and I’ll be home by 10 am the rest of the day. Wish I had your phone number – you have my number so why don’t you call me after 10 and we’ll make a plan to come to my house. Thanks, Donna!

          4. Kathy Rayhons

            Donna if you could come in the afternoon, then I will be home when you would get the kitties. This is Kathy Rayhons the lady who has the kitties. I would also like to meet you.

      Donna Wyatt – if I bring the two tabbies to my house, would you still want to pick them up on Sunday? O

      1. Donna

        My husband just informed me that it’s not going to work. I’m so sorry but he refuses to let them be in the house or near the house. “To many birds of prey and coons”. If I didn’t have him I’d love them. But I’ve kept him for 36 years. Better stick with the sure deal. 😞 I know someone will love them.

  8. Cathy

    What darling babies & so sad about their momma. If I didn’t live in Indiana i’d take them all & they could join my 11 spoiled cats. 😁 Sure hope they find homes quickly.

  9. Teresa

    Mary, I’d take the two siamese colored if you’re still looking for homes for them.

    1. CountryThreads Post author

      Teresa – they will need some hand feeding and we’d both like to see them be house cats – will you be able to do that?

      1. Teresa

        No problem, I’m looking for two kittens to be barn cats. I am local to you and I do have the equipment to take care of them and keep them safe until they are older and can run around. Let me know if you’d like me to come and get them.

        1. CountryThreads Post author

          Teresa – will you take the two tabby kittens? Someone has requested the Siamese marked ones.

          1. Teresa

            I’m partial to the Siamese breed, Mary. My two house cats are Siamese and my elderly barn cat is Siamese. His partner for 16 years died of old age so I’m looking for two new Siamese mix kittens.

          2. CountryThreads Post author

            Teresa – OK! When can you come? I’ll take you to Kathy’s house.

          3. Teresa

            Mary, I’m in Clear Lake having paint mixed. I can drive over when I’m done here.

          4. CountryThreads Post author

            Teresa – ok – call me before you come – I’m getting ahold of Kathy now. 641-512-5188

    What a blog!! I’m sure our shelter would love to get on this blog as they are overflowing with kittens right now. What loving readers! My heart sank when I saw them because it’s not always easy to find homes for kittens, but these went like hot cakes. Congratulations to these readers and to Mary for being the go between .

    I don’t know now why my post came with anonymous, but it’s from Pat Smith.
    It seemed to take off before I was done typing.

    The reason these kitties went so fast is because the readers as well as the author have hearts of gold filled with love and kindness. I am so happy for all the new kitty owners and the kittens themselves, but not surprised! Enjoy!

    1. CountryThreads Post author

      Carolyn Barney – well, that’s really nice of you to say! Nobody reading this blog on a regular basis would be very interested for very long if they didn’t love animals!

  13. Diane and Squeak in Central Ohio

    Awww. Such nice people to volunteer to take the kitties. Too bad Ohio is just a little far to get them😥. They will be lucky kitties wherever they go😻😻

  14. Jean

    What WONDERFUL people there are out there! I am saturated with the hatred and anger in our country right now. Feels good to read something uplifting. Thank you to the beautiful people willing to help!

    hi mary. such precious kitties. being in florida i cannot be a candidate. i want to tell my story about kitties this age. in 1985my son wanted a kitty amongst a group of kitties.. we were told they were 8 weeks old. i thought they were small but i knew nothing about kitties. that was on a saturday, i took him to vet on monday to have him checked out. he was four (4) weeks old. he was so small he fit in my 15 y.o. son’s palm. not knowing any better we stopped at pet store, got all the stuff the kitty needed, including kitten food. this little kitty (named him smokey cuz he was that color) tried to take scrambled eggs out of my mouth. he was a fearess little boy. he stole my heart right away and slept with me, lots of times wrapped around the top of my head. he thrived on the kitten food, moistened with water and eggs and all the attention.he loved me and i loved him. he turned me into a cat lady. he died at 9.5 yrs old and i cried for days. take a chance people and just love them. patti in florida

    1. CountryThreads Post author

      Patti Leal – oh, what a lovely kitty story! And it was your SON who wanted the kitty in the first place – haha! He stole your heart, didn’t he? I think these kitties can’t be more than 4 weeks old – not weaned but starting to slurp.
