Raising new born kittens could be the most challenging and time consuming task I have ever attempted. It is also one of the most intensely rewarding and most heartbreaking experiences of my life.
And the itty bitty kitty committee would be the first to agree.
One of the first things I realized when I started spending a lot of time around tiny kittens (I know, a rough job, but someone’s gotta do it) is just how, well…tiny they are. Although your first (and, I dare say, correct) instinct is to pick them up and love them, it’s startling - and a bit anxiety-producing - to realize just how teensy and tender and fragile they really are.
