My tiny little Fruitcake girl is still hanging in there, but her lungs are incredibly weak. She’s at a higher concentration of oxygen now and she’ll be started on nebulizer treatments before her next feeding. I’m super worried that she is starting to show pre-URI symptoms and being premature with a URI is one of the worst combos. She’s on an antibiotic right now to try and hold off pneumonia from taking hold if her symptoms progress. She’s not at all interested in eating, so Tubey is her friend right now, but her digestive system is working properly right now. Her energy level is incredibly low, but she had her first little purrs at the last feeding. Come on tiny fighter. 💪🏻 #tinyfighter #preemie #fosterkitten #kitten #bottlebaby #tortie #tinytortie #loveher #fosterkitten #kitten #fosterkittensofinstagram #kittensofinstagram #fosteringsaveslives

Sweet little Eggnog passed away peacefully this morning. Since both he and his sister are preemies, their digestive systems and lungs are underdeveloped. This first week for Fruitcake is going to be her toughest fight since she should still be hanging out in her mother’s womb while continuing to develop and waiting to be born. She could use all the well wishes and fighter thoughts sent her way. ❤️ #sweetboy #tinyfighter #preemie #orphankitten #bottlebaby #fosteringsaveslives

Introducing Fruitcake and Eggnog. These newest little preemie angels were born this afternoon and dropped off with me several hours later. Their finder reported that mama was hit by a car and an amazing woman transported them to me. They’re brand brand new at only a few hours old and their birth weights are 73 grams (dilute tortie girl-Fruitcake) and 67 grams (graybie boy-Eggnog). They have some weak lungs, so they’re getting oxygen in their incubator and they are currently being tube fed as well. Being premature, orphaned, and born at the end of kitten season means these babies are high-risk, but we had a talk and they told me they’re little fighters. #preemie #tinybutmighty #wheniskittenseasonending #fosterkitten #kitten #orphankitten #bottlebaby #tortie #graybie #newborn #precious #fosterkittensofinstagram #kittensofinstagram #babycat #fosteringsaveslives

Introducing feisty Miss Lovette (pronounced Loo-vet). Little Lulu is a spunky little girl who is always on the prowl for warm formula and kisses. She hated me for the first few days she was here as she adjusted to being a bottle baby, but we’re buds now and she loves her snug time after meals. She’s a perfect little mini panther in camouflage and I can’t wait for her little peepers to reveal themselves. #werewolfcub #cutiepie #spicygirl #fosterkitten #kitten #bottlebaby #blackcat #fevercoat #socute #precious #fosterkittensofinstagram #kittensofinstagram #fosteringsaveslives

Introducing Mr. Lupin! 🐺 Lupin and his sister are officially one week old today and they’re slowly making the gains. They still both have their umbilical cords and are slow in their development, but they’re quickly becoming awesome eaters and are turning into total purr machines. ❤️ #babyboy #werewolfcub #fosterkitten #kitten #bottlebaby #fevercoat #tabbykitten #socute #adorable #fosterkittensofinstagram #kittensofinstagram #fosteringsaveslives

These perfect little nuggets have been with me since Sunday when they were barely one day old. Their mama is a young mama who had a large litter and wasn’t able to care for all of them due to her small milk production and anxiety from being indoors. These two were the two weakest and tiniest of the bunch and mama had been separating them from the group and leaving them behind, so they’re perfect candidates for some incubator cooking. Mama and the remaining babies will be getting spayed as well once they’re old enough. The little boy weighed in the 70 gram range on intake and the little girl was in the 80 gram range. After being tube fed for the first couple of days, they’re now slowly getting the hang of eating on their own. They have fever coats, but I think baby boy will be a tabby and baby girl will be a mini panther. For now, they’re baby werewolves who are just perfect. #welcomebabies #newborn #magicalincubator #fosterkitten #kitten #bottlebaby #miniwerewolves #fevercoat #socute #precious #fosterkittensofinstagram #kittensofinstagram #babycat #fosteringsaveslives

2019 has been a big year of change. As I settled into feeling like a full-fledged adult (is that feeling ever even complete?), changes have occurred and we all know humans aren’t always open to change. As the year began coming to a close, I began feeling some pretty intense growing pains. I severed ties with a couple of my close friends after some intense falling out. I’ve also met some amazing people this year and I feel so grateful to call them my friends. My emotions have felt incredibly used up and it’s been hard to focus on caring for tiny beings amidst major life changes. Despite everything, I’ve never been more clear of who I am as a person and how I want to treat other people. I’m more cognizant of surrounding myself with people who love me for who I am and support growth, but not people who I make me feel like I need to stifle my personality. We’re all dealing with challenges in life and we all get stressed, but one thing we can all do is show respect and kindness to others when we have a conflict. I’m certainly not perfect (literally no one is), but I’m also coming into my own and have a pretty clear sense of myself, what I need, and what I’m not ok with. The delicate kittens are now with another foster after weaning and they’re doing amazing. I also have some exciting adoption updates for the Lisbon-Spangle clan to share with everyone. One thing that has always brought me joy is fostering and I have every intention of taking in new little guys now that the dust has settled. I am eternally grateful for the support form each and every one of you. From the donations and incubator fundraiser support to the heartfelt messages I receive, I feel so blessed to have you all behind me and it shows me that despite real life struggles, I have a whole team of cheerleaders rooting for the kittens. From every foster kitten who has passed through the Bottle Baby Fosters program and from me, thank you all for being awesome people and sticking with us. ❤️ #grateful #cheerleaders #fostermamaforlife #fosterkitten #kitten #bottlebaby #orphankitten #lovethemall #fosterkittensofinstagram #fosteringsaveslives

Dewey is officially a contender for spud bod of the year. 🥔 He’s still a little drama king who demands to be fed first. #spudbod #chub #lovehim #thatbelly #fosterkitten #kitten #orphankitten #bottlebaby #siamese #siamesekitten #socute #adorable #fosterkittensofinstagram #kittensofinstagram #fosteringsaveslives

Sweet little Petal has the cutest little face. She has a suckling obsession and developed a hot spot on her little paw, but she’s quickly breaking the habit now and is still in the habit of purring up a storm. #thecutest #thatface #sweetgirl #fosterkitten #kitten #bottlebaby #orphankitten #calico #calicokitten #socute #adorable #fosterkittensofinstagram #kittensofinstagram #fosteringsaveslives

Throwback of baby Spangle. 😻 I’m super happy to announce that Spangle and her best bud, Cecilia, are pre-adopted together and will be heading home on Sunday! Their new mama is already getting so many fun items for them and I know they’re going to be so spoiled. They will have an insta to follow, so I’ll announce it once it’s been all set up! #worriedeyesforever #preadopted #adoptdontshop #rescued #fosterkitten #kitten #bottlebaby #orphankitten #tortie #tortiekitten #socute #adorable #fosterkittensofinstagram #kittensofinstagram #fosteringsaveslives

Milk-drunk Dewey is basically the epitome of every night owl being assaulted by the noise of the alarm in the mornings. He’s also still a huge fan of food and snuggles. #relatable #samedeweysame #fosterkitten #kitten #orphankitten #bottlebaby #siamese #siamesekitten #socute #adorable #fosterkittensofinstagram #kittensofinstagram #babycat #fosteringsaveslives

My chunky monkey, polar bear chub, angel child Dewey gives me serious cute aggression. Favourite spots to kiss include his chubby belly, his button nose, and his adorable little floof head. #thatface #cuteaggression #unreal #fosterkitten #kitten #orphankitten #bottlebaby #siamese #siamesekitten #toocute #precious #fosterkittensofinstagram #kittensofinstagram #fosteringsaveslives
