" We just rescued a little baby kitten(whom we named Lucy, after the Beatles song) from a person I know that was neglecting and abusive toward her. When my husband brought her in. Wrapped in his shirt. She was covered in her own excrement and both eyes were pussing and matted shut. Her mouth covered with dried old food and a gross slimy film on her little feet. I immediately bathed her while crying and got her eyes open and all the horrible neglect off of her little face and feet. She was skin and bones. I still cant understand how someone could do this to such a helpless life. She is a beautiful kitten. Affectionate, playful, not really affected by the neglect. She sleeps on both my husband and my chest all the time. At least 5 weeks old at the moment. I had to help keep her eye from getting further infected and since we got her almost 4 days ago she has thankfully gained weight and seems very happy with us. She was so hungry when we got her she tried to bite my finger off. She took the bottle at first with the Vitamin formula for kittens and ate up the soft wet kitten food we got her, vigorously. Like she hadn't eaten in days. Plus her eye is completely open again and no more infection. She is completely healthy. And growing since. I noticed she has these darker tiger stripes to her. But her coat looks a very very dark brown almost black, until the light hits her and it turns this chocolate brown color. Her front legs are a bit awkward. They have an almost outer stance to her knees. But she walks perfectly. I don't think anything is wrong with her legs its just how she is built. They do remind me of the legs of a Siamese. Her ears are very large for any other kitten I have rescued/had. I was looking through breeds and came across pictures of Havana browns. And they matched her perfectly. Now I don't know what her mom & dad looked like but her nose is tiny and her eyes are green. Could she be this breed? I also have a Maine Coon and a beautiful Calico. My Calico female is not too happy with our new addition She has been hiding upstairs and occasionally comes down to eat and use her potty. But the minute she sees the baby kitten she hisses and bolts back upstairs. I don't know how long this behavior will last but I really don't like her avoiding us as well. She swung at me today for the first time and I know she is frustrated. But she isn't normally like this. I love her bunches and don't want to make her feel like she is second best. Cause she is my baby just like the others. Does anyone know what I can do to stop my Female Calico from hissing and avoiding her? She just doesn't seem to be okay with her presence at all. But I make sure she gets plenty of love from me. I think she may be jealous. Would it be positive for my Female Calico, if I gave her a toy? And also including the new baby? My Male (Neutered) Maine Coon has hissed at her a couple of times. But doesn't at all act jealous of her. I was thinking, if it was a good idea to go ahead and buy them all toys and show my love? Could that break the tension? I don't expect them to be immediately used to her. It will always take time. But my Calico is worrying me. I dont want her to attack Lucy. I just need a little help on what to do to soften the environment with all of them. Lucy is curious about them. But since they have been hissing at her. She doesn't want to go near them much. Thanks to anyone who can help Sincerely, Kat"
