The rescue provided an informative video that explains how the foster mother had to use a syringe while the kittens were still learning to latch onto a bottle. She also assisted the kittens in gently expressing their bladder and intestines, much as their mother cat would. As kittens can quickly become seriously ill, being on the lookout for any signs of problems is another crucial aspect of fostering.
The foster mother watched the ginger kittens carefully as they grew. The rescuers had a sneaking suspicion that all three of the infants were ginger females at this point! Eighty percent of orange tabbies, including Marmalade, are born male, making females significantly less common. As a result, all three females inherited both of the genes, and both of the parent cats possessed the gene for orange fur.
The rescuers thought they were girls at four weeks old, but it can be difficult to tell for sure at that young age.
Eight weeks later, the ginger kittens started to show their adorable purrpersonalities.
