With the advent of Halloween, unfortunately, there are a few who use this time of "tricks and treats" to perpetrate cruelty/abuse on black cats and other innocent pets. We STRONGLY recommend that for your pet's safety, especially black cats, that you plan to confine him/her to a safe and quiet place. The noise and constant traffic of "trick or treaters", can, even for the most complacent of pets, become a frightening and/or confusing experience.

Also, during the month of October, none of the black cats will be available for adoption. This is for their safety. However, if one of our ebony beauties catches your fancy, please contact Sally (925.808.8364) for a private showing.

Please remember that while CHOCOLATE and other candies are a delicious Halloween treat for people, that they can be TOXIC to pets. Accidental poisonings increase around this time when curious pets decide to "sample" your stash of goodies.


FFF wishes you and your pet(s) A HAPPY & SAFE HALLOWEEN.

P. S. Stop by to visit our "formerly friendless creatures" and sample our complimentary Halloween treats.


 

cat and moon COME JOIN THE PRE - HALLOWEEN FUN ...

INTRODUCING...

Petunia Says

Announcement

 

PETUNIA, our FFF cat liaison and my kitty soulmate, finally has her own column!

 

Petunia

The idea for this column stemmed from comments my husband, and kitty Santa, made one day when PETUNIA seemed to be more in charge than we did...and we found ourselves" living on Petunia time "!

As he pointed out, PETUNIA has very definite ideas about things...and definitely has a mind of her own...and lets us know about things from a cat perspective. It just made sense to give her a chance to " educate" us humans about " all things CAT".

PETUNIA SAYS... will give us an opportunity to share and learn about a variety of topics that can benefit both human and kitty. She hopes to share information on kitty health issues, entertaining , enrichment, alternative medicine and vet care, emergency preparedness, problem solving and many more.

If you have a topic you would like for her to cover, please feel free to email her
in care of sally@fffcatfriends.org. Indicate " Petunia Says" in the subject box.

FFF, and PETUNIA hope that you enjoy this new resource. See her new page at

Kitten Progression
Week by Week
Nursing Kittens Mom

Originally presented by © Alley Cat Allies, reference links will open original article outside this site.

Determining a kitten's age can be difficult. Kittens develop at their own speed based on environmental and genetic factors. Observing physical signs, such as how open their eyes are and their weight, as well as behaviors, like when kittens begin venturing from their mother or using a litter box, will help. The photos and descriptions below can help you gauge the age of kittens with an unknown birth date.

Learn more about kitten age and what to do when you encounter kittens outdoors.

First Week

 

When kittens are first born, they are helpless—they cannot see, hear, keep themselves warm, or eliminate waste on their own. They fit in the palm of your hand, and weigh 3-5 ounces. Callie, Penguin, and Ruby are completely dependent on their mother (or you!) for protection, warmth, and nutrition. Even so, these kittens can purr and make distress calls. They spend 90% of their time sleeping and the other 10% eating.

 

 

1 day

At one day old, the kittens cannot stand. Their eyes are closed and their ears are folded. Kittens this young require round-the-clock care and bottle feeding every two hours.

3 days

Notice that the kittens' ears are just beginning to unfold, though their eyes remain closed. Their sense of smell, hearing, and taste are slowly starting to develop.

6 days

After almost a week, the kittens begin to wiggle around on their own a little bit and their eyes start to open.

One week old

One week in this world, Callie, Penguin, and Ruby are becoming more aware of their surroundings. Their eyes are almost completely open, though their eyesight is still unfocused. They have doubled their birth weight to around eight ounces.

Second Week

 

 

During their second week, Callie, Penguin, and Ruby continue to grow by leaps and bounds. By the end of the week, their ears will be almost completely uncurled and they will begin to crawl. They still depend completely on a caregiver—either mom or you—for food and waste elimination.

 

 

 

8 days

The kittens snuggle together for warmth and comfort and rarely venture far from mom, their nest, or each other.

9 days

The kitten's eyes are all blue—and they will stay that way for the first couple of weeks. Their true eye color may not become completely apparent until they are 2 months old.

12 days

The kittens are becoming more comfortable venturing away from mom, though they are wobbly on their feet.

Two weeks old

Now that Callie, Penguin, and Ruby are more aware of their surroundings, they are beginning to interact with each other. Their sense of smell is developing, and they will hiss at unfamiliar scents or sounds—though the tiny sounds that come out are most likely not as ferocious as they think! They are also kneading, though they cannot yet retract their claws.

Third Week

 

 

 

By the third week, you can clearly determine if the kittens are boys or girls. (All three of these kittens are girls.) Callie, Penguin, and Ruby's teeth are coming in and their walking is becoming more confident.

 

 

15 days

Even at this age, the kittens still spend a substantial part of their day sleeping.

16 days

The kittens are just beginning to play and develop their fine motor skills.

20 days

Kittens this age can start to eliminate waste on their own, without the help of mom or a caregiver. Now that the kittens have reached this milestone, it's time to start litter box training.

Three weeks old

They kittens are drinking much more at each feeding, but at fewer feedings, probably four to five times a day. And, they can begin to be supplemented with solid food; you can now begin to introduce solid food—wet food at first. By the end of the week, their weight will have increased to close to 15 ounces. They are walking steadily, without too much wobbling.


Fourth Week

 

 

By now, Callie, Penguin, and Ruby look like fluffy, miniature versions of their mother. They are showing interest in the outside world, interacting with their littermates more and also beginning to interact with people and toys. That means it's time to begin socializing these kittens!

 

 

 


22 days

Notice that their ears are fully extended and they are holding themselves up well.They are sturdy!

23 days

The kittens' fur is beginning to fill out—Penguin has longer fur than Callie (so she will have medium-length fur) and Ruby's fur is even fuller than Penguin's (so she will likely have medium-long fur).

Four weeks/One month old

It's amazing how quickly these helpless kittens have grown up over a four-week period! Callie, Penguin, and Ruby are thriving babies, starting to explore the world around them and play frequently with friends and toys.

Edward, our very serious boy, also makes the following suggestions for our young readers.

The Misadventures of the Magician's Dog
Frances Sackett. Holiday House.

Peter's 12th birthday is tomorrow, and his mother is asking him what he wants. Mostly he wants things
money can't buy—like having his dad come home from his latest Middle Eastern deployment or not to be so lonely. For some unknown reason, Peter blurts out that he wants a dog. The dog that Peter adopts is no ordinary canine and leads him and his two younger sisters into wild and magical adventures involving a battle with an evil magician.



What is the Children's Choices Project?


Each year 12,500 school children from different regions of the United States read newly published children's and young adults' trade books and vote for the ones they like best. These Children's Choices, selected from more than 500 titles, can be counted on as books children really enjoy reading. This list, a project of a joint committee supported by IRA and The Children's Book Council (CBC), is designed for use not only by teachers, librarians, administrators, and booksellers but also by parents, grandparents, caregivers, and everyone who wishes to encourage young people to read for pleasure.



What Is the Young Adults' Choices Project?


 The 2014 Young Adults' Choices list is the 28th that U.S. teenagers (grades 7–12) have helped create. This project began in 1986, funded by a special grant given to the International Reading Association, and was supervised by the Association's Literature for Young Adults Committee. The goals of the project are to encourage young people to read; to make teens, teachers, librarians, and parents aware of new literature for young adults; and to provide middle and secondary school students with an opportunity to voice their opinions about books being written for them.
