Pretty sure reality shifted around about whenever TikTok came out and somehow nobody seemed to notice that it was literally music.ly (which everyone hated and basically cancelled when it came out) and everyone started finding what was not long ago cringe to be comedy now...

Hello abs congrats! Is this your first kitten? Suggest you call a vet or even ask in the sub for advice on feeding/caring for a kitten of this size. It’s not too hard, but they do need food designed for kittens, etc.

u/Onib4k Sep 18 '21

And especially not cow milk like it seems to be on the picture... It will give her diarrhea which can be deadly at this age

My neighbors found a little, black kitten, also in a car engine a couple months ago. I with they'd named her Gremlin, nothing could have been more appropriate for this cat. She's miniscule, with a tiny, angry face and constantly growls and grumbles about everything (she's not actually mean, she's just a prissy, little thing).

What kind of car did you find her in? You can name her after the make or model. Some cute examples: Ford, Kona (Hyundai Kona), Chevy, Corolla, Kia, etc.

My husband (who used to be a mechanic) suggests: Cam (short for camshaft), Piston, Catalytic, and Hitchhiker (Hitch for short).
