Kaygee, our otherwise adorable toy poodle, is apparently as insecure as they come. Have my hands full trying to take care of the kitten.
Cyclops writes in with this nice link about adopting orphan kittens. http://www.fanciers.com/cat-faqs/orphans.html
By the way, my kitten (we're thinking of naming her Catastrophix; looks like the parents are letting me keep her!) now eats solid food, although she hasn't figured out how to drink water yet.
Catastrophix the kitten is alive and well, although somewhat fishy-smelling (we've been feeding her solid kitten food). She still hasn't figured out the litter box or the water dish, but she makes up for it with quite an appetite.
Some confusion about her age. I'll go with the vet's guess placing her at around a month old. My sister contends that she's far younger. At any rate, Catastrophix can walk around (albeit unsteadily), purr (quite delightfully), and snuggle (rather contentedly).
It's been hard to type with one hand, but it's worth it for that little furball.
She's developing quite an appetite, although she still persists in attempting to swim through her food. She's grooming herself now!
