Our Lily has 2 gold eyes so her hearing is fine. She does have very sensitive skin, which is common in white cats, and must be limited to time in the sun as sunlight is a white cats' enemy. Skin cancer is very common in white cats that are allowed access to the outdoors during the summer months.
So, that's a little bit on white cats. My first white cat, given to me by my dad when I was 16, was a beautiful medium-haired white cat named Snowy. (of course) She was the start of my life-long love affair with the white cat.
Update on mother and three kittensMellie is doing well. She is such a devoted little mother.but when I enter the room she wants some of that good lovin' she has come to enjoy in just a few hours. She has used her box tonight like a clean, good kitty and has had 2 servings of vitamin-packed soft food. Her dry is Performatrin kitten food. She likes it. It brought me to tears to watch her play in between feedings on the carpet with 4 little fuzzy mice I gave her. She was in heaven.
It has been a long time since I had a mother and kittens in our home so I have many questions and will be reading like a mad woman. So far...so good.
The seizure was on a foreclosure where up to 35 animals were left behind. In the room where I found Mellie was ALL of the cats from that house. The gene-pool was very evident. Litters upon litters must have been born in this environment. It was hard to decide what to do but Mellie looked the most needy and the kittens were only 2 days old so I felt she had the least chance of getting out of the shelter. Now I think I was lucky to have picked her. We seem to click.
