Story

Now kitten season is well under way we currently have a lot of kittens in our care, they have arrived for various reasons.

Some of the kittens are needing extra veterinary care and special food which adds to the mounting cost to care for the kittens.

We are currently receiving a increased number of calls for help and we are full with nursing mums and kittens.

Our volunteers are working extra hard and providing extra socialisation for kittens that are more nervous of people. Some are needing feeding support whilst others are just very good at making a mess so regular checks and cleaning out are needed.

Having so many kittens arrive we are getting through alot of kitten food, cat litter and there is lots more washing to do.

Back in September during the initial kitten influx, we had two sisters who gave birth within a couple of days of each other. We had kept them together meaning they assisted each other during the birth and are now jointly taking care of their kittens. This is what would happen if they were in a feral colony, the females work together to care for the kittens taking it in turns to leave the nest for food. The sister and their kittens have now gone off to their foreverhomes.
