Meet Saffron

Saffron is a sweet girl who was only a kitten herself when she came into care heavily pregnant. Unfortunately she lost her babies as they appear to have been born prematurely and were not developed enough to survive (please see the 'sponsorship required page'). Saffron has now recovered from this sad event, and is now a happy and affectionate feline. She enjoys playing with her foster mother 'Martha' or playing with toys on her own. She also likes to sleep in your lap or in the sun by the window. Saffron would make the perfect companion for someone who would like a friendly, house trained and independent cat.

Poor Saffron had a very difficult birth with her premature babies. One was born still born and another was unable to be born naturally due to it's positioning within her womb. Saffron was rushed to the vet for x-rays and a shot to induce her remaining kitten. She eventually gave birth fourteen hours after her previous kitten was born, but all the kittens were weak and underdeveloped. To make matters worse Saffron was not producing any milk which lead her carer to hand feed the kittens every four hours. Unfortunately, none of the kittens were strong enough to survive. Saffron's vet bills have now come to $285 and we are now seeking sponsorship to help with these expenses.
