Willow & Bertie

Willow & Bertie were part of a litter of a kittens found with their mum living in a shed. The other kittens have since been rehomed but unfortunately this pair are still waiting patiently. Bertie is very confident and loving, he will come to greet you straight away and loves lots of attention. Willow can be a little more hesitant but soon follows once she has sussed you out. Both kittens enjoy sitting on your lap having some much-needed TLC. They are very active and playful, so will need homes where they are going to be kept busy with physical and mental stimulation. The pair would be suited to live with children aged 12 years and over and could possibly live with other animals. They will eventually need indoor and outdoor access. The pair must be rehomed together.

Cat care

Until a cat is settled into a new home it is essential that they are not let outside and as a general guide this would be about four weeks. However, this is dependent on the individual cat.
Whilst a cat is confined to indoors you can introduce new toys for them to play with and chase. Cat nip toys can be especially rewarding. A scratch post will hopefully discourage them from choosing your sofa to sharpen their claws! Regular grooming by you will help to cement the bond between cat and new owner and although cats are known to generally be more independent than a dog, they thrive on companionship and interactive play. Even adult cats can be persuaded to practice their stalking and pouncing skills on an old shoelace, or play hide and seek in a cardboard box.
