Update on mum and kittens . All except one kitten was adopted by new mums and dads, but one little white and black one hid behind the chair and wouldn't meet new people. Eventually when the others had gone the fosterer said she had better stay with me. That is how I added Babe to my animal family. She is now 2 years old and apart from from having different colored eyes (one blue, one green) is a normal extremely mischievous cat.
These four came into to us late one night in a tea towel, cold hungry and only seven days old. After bottle feeding every two hours they all left us as healthy happy very fat kittens.
