Thanks for all your sweet comment on my little Victoria.

She got me wrapped around her tiny finger, well  OK... toe, and I think that if she could ring a bell for service, she would. She doesn't need a bell however as she is well able to make herself heard when she wants room service. You'd never know that she comes from such humble beginnings as being born in a barn. lol....

She sleeps in a box with old towels and a Magic bag for heat, on my bed.  The box is wrapped up with some thick throws to keep the heat in the box. She loves her accomodations.

I had to change to a higher box as she climbed out from the box onto the bed then she came down on the wicker table at the foot of my bed and climbed on a pair of clean pyjamas bottoms and pooped on them, the nerves of her.

Since some of you wanted some pictures, here's some pictures of Victoria.

Haley is trying to feed Victoria but she's not cooperating.


Haley is a young girl who wants to become a large animal vet and come to volunteer some hours at our farm.. She still was biting the syringe.

Taking pictures of Victoria is quite a chore as she kept walking away and didn't want to have her picture taken.

She doing push up to strengthen her scrawny legs.

She hates push up and get defiant.

She want to go in her warm bed in a box. She thinks that crying is the way to get whats she wants.

Still crying in the corner, trying to look as pathetic as she can.

She's sticking her tongue at me in defiance.

Now she pouting, looking more like a possum that a kitten.

I'm trying to get her to look at the camera but she not really interested.

She keeping meowing

Doesn't she looks so pathetic?  Aww poor little thing, I shouldn't make fun of her. She's tired and wants to go to sleep. She' s just a baby.

You can tell she's been crying. I took her to bed and she started to purr and knead her little feet on her bedding.

She still hates to drink from the little nipple and bottle I got her but she love the 5cc syringe.  She now drinks about 7 to 8 cc and I tried the 10 cc syringe but the milk comes out too fast for her and she seems not to want to suck on it so I had to go back to 5cc syringe and  to put more milk in it until she has had enough.
She grabs the syringe in her tiny paws and she sucks quite hard and you can hear the milk gurgling down her tummy.

When she's done she wants a gentle kitty message on her back and she purrs then she wants to get in her warm box to knead the warm towel and purr loudly.

She peed on her own for the first time tonight. I think that this is more than enough publicity on Victoria.

I'm having a hard time getting enough sleep as Victoria wakes me during the night for feeding just like a baby and I'm so tired. So I'm off to bed as she will soon wake me up just when I fall asleep.

I appreciate your visit very much and I look forward to reading your comments. Have a great week.  JB


  1. Julia,
    Well it's easy to see Miss Victoria has you wrapped around her little paws! LOL! So Sweet!! It's not easy being a kitty Momma so I'm glad Haley is there to help out! Hope you get some rest Julia!

  2. Wow, she is a tiny thing. About how old is she. You are spoiling her but that's okay.

  3. Oh! Thank you!!! That is so precious. I wished I was close, I would take turns with the night feedings.

  4. Oh Victoria is so sweet. Bless you for your efforts.

  5. She has rallied under your care. I love all the pictures and your funny captions. Hope you can get some rest soon, though. I'm not sure I could keep up with the nighttime feedings! You are good!!

  6. Looks like blogger ate my comment last night. Victoria is absolutely adorable. No wonder she has you wrapped around her little paws :) It sounds like her attitude is taking over. I sense you may have a kitty version of Millie on your hands.....demanding but hard to resist :)

  7. Victoria, has momma Julia where she wants you, me thinks she is doing well. I hope you get some sleep. She is very much a royal kitty from humble beginnings. Glad you are getting so help maybe you can get a rest. Take care and thank you for the update on her royal highness lol!

  8. She's a tiny thing but sure knows where her bread..aka milk..is buttered! You're a good caretaker..Have a great week and thanks for the update!

  9. She is so cute and so tiny. I hope that you get some rest. She will follow you every where you go when she gets big. I am so glad for the update.

  10. I am reminded of a couple of times in my life when I have rescued a very young kitten! They turned into very likable and lovable pets, sometimes not realizing they were cats!:-)
    I send my best to you and Victoria!

  11. oh my goodness! she is such a little baby! sooo cute and you are such a great mommy! enjoy your day and try take a little nap!

  12. Julia ~
    What a tiny little thing! God Bless you for taking such good care of her.
    Pug hugs :)

  13. I am glad that I was able to help a little bit with Victoria the other day. She sure requires a lot of care. and, as the kids said, she is the cutest little ugly thing I ever saw! I am sure that once she grows a bit and grows into her head and eyes, she will be beautiful!

    1. I was happy that you could fill in for me. It's sometimes difficult to balance my farm work and feeding Victoria on time. Now she's eating more at each feeding and sleeps a bit longer and sleeps longer at night.

  14. ohhhh, I love this little story about your little baby!! but you do need your sleep.. there are so many other animals that need you!

    1. Oh My GOSH!! What a darling baby kitty you have there!
      You must be tired, feeding around the clock and all but she is such a doll and so lucky to have been found by you!

      She's gonna love your forever!

  15. Awww sniff and snort? Sooooo precious! And as the kids said .... she is the cutest little ugly thing !!!

    Hahaa ... can't wait to see her grow into those eyes!

    You spoil her because that's who you are! and I thank you !

    little thing

    1. Hahaaa snort was not a question but an exclamation ...

  16. I just got caught up on your little kitten. What a wonderful person you are to take her in and and take such good care of her!

  17. Oh Julia, somehow I missed knowing about little Victoria. I am so glad I went back on your blog so I could read about this wee kitty. Honestly, I will be happy for you when she can sleep through the night as that is pretty awful for you to miss so much sleep. She is very lucky to have you. That's what I get for only being on my computer about once a week. I just don't seem to have much more time for it. I certainly don't do it every day like most people. Occaisionally, I'll go one a couple of times a week, but mostly it's on Tuesdays. I read all of my friends blogs then too and make my comments. That is why I only have about ten blogs that I follow on a regular basis. I like it that way as I feel pretty close to all my blogging friends. I am so glad you found me and I would love to know how you did find me.

    Take care, Julia, you do have a very interesting life and certainly a busy one. I still don't know how you do it all. Sometimes it makes me tired just to read about all you do.

  18. Oh the memories are flooding back as I view the wonderful photos of Victoria. It's the memories of my Squirrel, now 7yrs old. Your a kindred spirit Julia with all you do, you still make the time for Victoria. God Bless The Creatures Great & Small, and you too!
