Kitten 3 came in to ARC’s care, when she was 4 weeks old, with her 5 brothers and sisters, in very sad circumstances. Her mummy had been put to sleep when she 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 3 will have a health check and will be wormed, fleaed and microchipped. She will need a home where someone is around for much of the time, as she is so young. When she is older, she will need access to a garden via a cat flap. Anyone adopting kitten 3 will need to be able to afford to get her vaccinated at 9 and 12 weeks, and neutered at 5 months.
