It's been a roller coaster 6 months

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!

Casey,
These cats are so lucky to have found you!
Your last resue, who's lost the leg, is he actually yours?
He's a Handsome Cat!
Three legged cats and dogs do very well! Just so happy his life could be saved!

Welcome to the forum. Thank you for caring for those little kitties. They are lucky indeed to have crossed your path.

Thank you

Yes, Feisty is mine. I rescued him when he was 10 days - 2 weeks old. That was a lot of bottle feeding He survived a serious stomach infection when he was 3 weeks old, and now with this latest exa-capade, I'm sure he's down a few of his 9 lives.

I have two other permanent residents, Tiger and Domino, who were also rescues

Casey,
What a fitting name for him!
He had to be Feisty, to survive all of that!
I'll bet he'll be running around like crazy soon!:p
Tiger and Domino were lucky to have found you as well!

Awww, all of the kitties are adorable - the fosters and your own kitties! Does Tufty have a little stub tail? Mr. Feisty will do just fine with his three remaining legs - I love his pointy ears!

Are Tiger and Domino girls or boys? And how old are they?

Tiger is a boy and Domino is a girl. They are brother and sister and I got them from a barn when they were about 5 weeks old with raging FHV infections. They are 7 years old this year.

Feisty is three this year.

Tufty has a very short tail; but I don't know if it is congenital or if he had an accident as the very end of his tail is bald.
