Meet Ginge

Ginge lived in a feral colony at a factory unit where she was seen to become pregnant a number of times, but never turned up with any kittens after giving birth. We managed to trap Ginge just before she was to give birth to a litter of kittens which arrived on the 26.9.2012. Only 2 of her 5 kittens survived with 1 getting stuck and taking a very long time to appear, that kitten was still born. When her 5th kitten also arrived still born, poor Ginge cleaned it up, and howled for hours, and kept looking to where the kitten lay not moving. Ginge was an excellent mum to the 2 surviving kittens and cared for them till they were weaned and for weeks after that stage. Ginge was not suitable for re-homing as she never accepted being around humans, so the decision was made to desex and ear tag her and release her back into her colony. Her integration back into that colony has gone extremely well and she will never again have to go through having kittens in such circumstances thanks to DCH ensuring she was desexed before release.
