A different kind of newborn photography... This little miracle is what has been keeping me so busy this past week and a half. We found her and her baby sister, only a few days old, in a cardboard box. They had been deserted at a parking lot. Sadly, the sister didn't make it, but this one is a warrior. She's only a few days old in this picture, hasn't opened her eyes yet- can't hear or see and needs as much attention and care as a newborn human baby. They are completely dependent on their mother at that age, and so I have to play that role for now.
It's not difficult to feed them. You just have to do it every few hours, depending on age. However their chances of survival without their momma taking care of them are very small. So, attempts to save such young ones often result in heartbreak... like this one.
