A few weeks ago we were unexpectedly presented with a basket of black fur with many eyes. Sadly the eyes were born somewhere where they were not wanted and we were advised that if we couldn't take this bundle of fur and many eyes in, they would be drowned.
We discovered that this bundle was actually 8 kittens only 4 weeks old.
For the first 24 hours they were very frightened and moved as a bundle together but did manage to eat all the food offered, including 1 which was so lethargic when we first took her in, we thought we would lose her.
Frankie and Carol, our Fosterers, took 4 of the kittens each to help socialise and introduce them to everything a normal loved cat would in a home.
The kittens are growing and are now 9 weeks old. Before leaving us, all 8 kittens will be checked by a vet, vaccinated, neutered, microchipped and receive flea and worm treatment. As you can imagine, this is quite a costly bill for all 8 gorgeous kittens!
We are appealing for help with the cost towards the vet bill and any donation would be really appreciated.
Anything raised over and above our target of £500 will go towards vet treatment for other cats that we have in our care.
If you would like to follow the kittens progress then Frankie is posting updates on twitter @Kittenscam
