This week I have written about two kittens and their Mom, she gave birth on a lady’s patio. I went to see them yesterday and they are so beautiful. Quite long haired. One is a dark tabby and the other is a white and black fluffy ball of fur. We would like to find a home for them together in about 2/3 weeks time.
A very special thank you to the people who have deposited into the Homeless cat fund bank account recently, and also to the regulars, without whom I could not purchase food for the cats at the Leaping Frog.
There is also someone who regularly drops off some tinned soft food and a packet of Epol. Thank you.
Whatever you can manage to give, makes a difference, so please drop off your food donations at Vet to Pet in Lonehill.
I am trying to give all the cats a tick and flea treatment, and de worming. Some cats I can handle to do this, others are more challenging. If you can donate a frontline treatment, please contact me or leave at Vet to Pet, who also sell this product.
Two ladies have contacted me recently to offer help. I am looking forward to meeting them, and hoping they will be able to help with feeding the cats on a regular basis. Especially now that one of my long term volunteers who has also become a friend, is moving to the coast. The cats will definitely miss Angie and so will I.
A lady called Kobie phoned to tell me she had a Mommy cat give birth on her patio a month ago. Kobie had been feeding two strays in her complex garden. As she wasn’t sure how to handle this lovely, trusting cat, she phoned me. We set up a nursery on her patio and I donated baby cat from Royal Canin for the Mom to eat to build up her milk production . We are not sure if her companion cat is the father, or another female.
Whatever the case, they stay together all the time. The kittens are now eating on their own and playing, and soon they will need a special home. It would be great to keep them together. I will have to catch the Mom and get her sterilized, and she will stay with Kobie and the other cat, once her kittens are homed.
