This week has been one full of kittens popping up all over the place. A couple of weeks ago a female cat not seen for months reappeared at one of the feed stations with 4 kittens of about 5-6 weeks of age, 2 of which were caught and taken to the shelter and are in the process of being tamed up before going into foster care for socialising. The video clip here is of one of those kittens.
Yesterday, when trying to catch the remaining two, lo and behold we find another female with 4 more babies of about the same age, these appear fairly tame so we have to presume they have been dumped. Again an unneutered cat with a litter of kittens, now unwanted and dumped. We still have 3 of the litter featured last week up for adoption and our 3 bottle-fed babies at the shelter.
Also in the photos we have Matteo who must have been a human in a past life, he has postures of a human not a cat. He’s our one-eye male with FIV. Then we have Duchess saving on water by lounging in a dry tub. She was dumped on us 2 years ago, emaciated and thin and 3 days later gave birth to a litter of 3. She’s totally tame and wanders around the property knowing she owns it. Her daughter from a previous litter, Snow, was recently adopted by a local resident in Lonehill. Snow’s brother, Jimmy, is still with us at the shelter. A quiet unassuming youngster who is always overlooked.
Adoptions: Approved adoption applications and home-checks apply whether it be for any of the kittens, teenagers or adult cats at the shelter.
Our adoption fee of R850 covers 1st and 2nd vacs. as well as rabies, deworming, deflea, and sterilization when done by one of our nominated Vets.
Food Donations: These are up slightly and our thanks to all those who have donated. Our bin is just inside our local Pick’nPay or can be left with Terri of Biz-X-Press.
