Splash was found face down in a water puddle during a thunderstorm in a lot near a bunch of warehouses. We were not sure if she was going to make it because she was coated with cement that had hardened completely encasing her tail, feet and was also all over her belly. We think her mother had been hiding her litter in a cement mixer. Splash was found alone, barely able to move because of the encrusted cement and just a few days after we had found her brother Forman. The vet was unable to remove the cement as Splash was too small to be shaved. Splash was found at only a couple weeks old and still needed her mother to nurse. But, we were unable to locate her so we came up with another plan..a surrogate mother! One of our volunteers had a nursing mom that only had 3 kittens. We waited until she left her babies to eat then rubbed her kittens all over Splash and slipped her in with the others, including her brother that we had found earlier in the week. The momma came back, inspected all now 5 kittens, and started to nurse...success again! She accepted little Splash as her own! As she grew and the new momma groomed her the cement started to flake off. As the cement fell off, so did Splash's fur leaving large bald spots. The fur has now grown back in and she is a beautiful, happy and playful tabby kitten!
Splash and her brother Foreman play with all ages of cats and loves our dog. They are quite mischievous and playful. They enjoy playing with toys, kids and each other. They love to climb cat trees, running after each other or a feather toy and sleeping in laps. Splash loves to play and run around with the other cats and likes to hide and sneak up on them to play.
Splash requires a home where she will never be declawed, or allowed to go outside. Splash will be getting her first kitten shots in a few days. We estimate that Splash was born about August 2, 2016.
