Kitten 2 came in to ARC’s care, when he was 4 weeks old, with his 5 brothers and sisters, in very sad circumstances. His mummy had been put to sleep when he was just over 3 weeks after developing septicemia caused by the fact that she had retained a kitten. Their owner did a great job of trying to hand rear the six but, after four days, realised it was too much for her and asked for ARC to take them on. The kittens are now weaned and are doing well so are ready to go to new homes. Because they were hand reared for a week or two, the kittens are sociable and used to being handled. Before homing, kitten 2 will have a health check and will be wormed, fleaed and microchipped. He will need a home where someone is around for much of the time, as he is so young. When he is older, he will need access to a garden via a cat flap. Anyone adopting kitten 1 will need to be able to afford to get him vaccinated at 9 and 12 weeks, and neutered at 5 months.
