Time For A Trio

Happy Thursday

Life can be so hectic sometimes, especially the summer months when the kittens are born and unwanted, this summer so far has seen around 40 abandoned kittens and several mothers needing a shelter space. Some have been terribly sick and some have been bouncing with health, but all have been unwanted! I am pleased to report many are now in their furrever homes, but 10 kittens and 2 mums are still in my care. 
To add to the confusion this summer, we decided to build a catio to keep all the residence and foster babies safe.
