I met Dexter a few days ago. His mom is a feral cat who delivered kittens in the neighbor's junk yard, but when she disappeared earlier this week, Dexter became an unexpected foster baby. I left him alone, hoping his mom would come back, but when his health started to deteriorate and it was clear that his mom wasn't coming back, I took him in. He's about 3 weeks old and needs to find a surrogate mom, or an experienced bottle-feeder. In the event that a suitable handler of either type cannot be found, he'll be ready for a new home in about 3 weeks (when he's 6 weeks old and eating hard food). If you know someone in Brainerd with 3-4 week old kittens and a momma cat who wouldn't mind an extra mouth - please let me know!
