Michelle says: Mystic (female grey tabby) and Magic (male black tabby) -- these two were soooooo freakin' sweet. A lady found them, and I think a friend of hers who knew me gave her my info. I did not think these kittens were going to make it. They were so small! Just slightly over two ounces whereas normal birthweight is between three and six ounces. I had never had kittens so young make it... so I tried to prepare her for the worst. But they hung in there and eventually thrived! Mystic even overcame a bout with aspiration pneumonia. We tag-teamed fostering the kittens. I had them during the week and she took them on the weekend so I could get some sleep. We did this until they were able to eat on their own and totally potty trained. It was hard to let them go; we had them for so long and they were these tiny little miracles. The lady who found them decided she couldn't part with them and kept them. =) We got a photo from her a few months later and they were very spoiled and very happy. Couldn't ask for more!

We had one like that, but lost him at four days. He was TINY, but so precocious. He was interacting with us, playing with our finger, gave tiny nose rubs to our hands, and purred whenever we picked him up. He also was pooping and peeing on his own from almost the first day... very unusual kitten. He was maybe three hours old when I found him, and if he weighed two ounces I would have been surprised. We named him Yoda, and I wish he'd survived. I think he would have been one extraordinary kitten.

I can understand wanting to keep them when they're that young... it's so easy to bond with bottle babies!

God bless you Michelle. I must have missed this story on its' first go around. I am so happy they made it. The odds were definitely stacked against them but you fight so hard for them and I am glad that lady helped and kept them. Bless her too. I know they don't look so adorable in this picture but to me this is the most precious picture because they lived!!!

@ A Walkaway: So sorry Yoda's story ended sadly. He was a special gift that was given to you, albeit for too short a time.

Dear Michelle--What would we do without you and your ability to go all out for these kitties. Mystic and Magic owe you so much. And so do we.
