It all started in October last year when my friend rescued two kittens, which were going to be raised as semi-feral barn cats for the stables. They were actually a lot younger than we first realised, so I said I would bring them home until they were 12 weeks old and vaccinated.
So for about 6 weeks I had two gorgeous kitties living in my spare room; I hated having to take them to the stables
Very sadly after 3 weeks, one of them broke a hind leg in a very awkward place, so the decision was made to euthanise him :'(
Crémant and Schnapps when they first arrived:
I'd not long put the cage and kitten equipment away when I got a message from a friend to say she had found a kitten on the road, had taken it to a vet and it had no microchip or tattoo, and could I take her for a while...
So Dusty came to stay
Dusty was a proper madam and quickly took over the whole house, much to my permanent residents chagrin. she also didn't stay very long, and she was rehomed very quickly to a lovely couple who spoil her rotten.
Then, just as I thought I was over my kitten fever, the same friend said that there had been 3 kittens abandoned at the stables in my village, and did I have any space.
So of course I said yes
Ebony arrived first as she was the easiest to catch
Then a week later Tufty came.
I'm hoping, once he has been snipped, Tufty will go to my other stables and keep Crémant company. Ebony I'm still deciding if I should rheum her, or if she will join my permanent residents.
In other kitty news, my last rescue, who is now almost 3 years old, was involved in an accident last week, and he is now minus a leg
He has adapted marvellously, and is extremely unhappy about being confined to the house (he has a vet check tomorrow, and hopefully he can start and go outside again)
So, it's all go in my house at the moment!
