I had already rescued Mommy and Gracie her baby of about 2 weeks old.
The Story on Mommy and Gracie Rescue
A couple days after I went to the trailer park at around midnight. I had traps set and went to check. It was very dark and quiet. I walked around a bit and walked back to the trailer steps and what did I see , but a tiny baby kitten sitting there at the steps. All alone . No other cat insight. I had no idea what she was doing there with out a mommy around. I picked her up and put her into a carrier. I quickly drove home. I assumed she was Mommy's baby. When I got home I went to put her in with Gracie and Mommy . Mommy looked up at her and before I could even put her to her, she reached up and grabbed Lorchen and pulled her to her chest. I was so amazed by the excitement in Mommy's face . She started to wash her and hold her so tight. I have never seen anything like this. Lorchen was now safe and re-united with her mommy and sister.

I was later to find out that both the babies were developing severe stomatitis. At such an early age there gums were starting to get very red. By age 5 months they were beet red. But they were to be helped and spared a life on the streets in misery and pain.

Lorchen .. as a Kitten.  Just too cute and playful with sister Gracie and The Crew, drove some nuts!
