Meet Smiggins

These 2 kittens were found in 2 separate cast iron urns. It was a very hot day, the urns were so hot that you couldn't keep your hand on them. Their mum must have left them there when she was moving them and they had slipped through a small hole into the bottom of the pedestal and she couldn't get them out from there. A worker heard their cries for help

very lucky little kittens to be saved.

They were estimated at about 1 and 1/2 weeks old due to their development and they have been bottle fed from the day they were found.

Charlotte, the tortoiseshell girl has had a few close scrapes with death and has used up a couple of her 9 lives. She is now very healthy and extremely chubby. She has 2 cute stripes to the sides of her eyes

one is black and the other is ginger.

Smiggins had an easier run with life, he has a stunning spotty light grey coat and is also extremely chubby. Smiggins comes running when he is called as he thinks it is always time for food or a cuddle when he is called.

Both kittens are extremely well socialised having been raised with other kittens and cats of various ages. The also have had lots of contact with a large dog and think it is acceptable behaviour to wander between the dogs legs and eat her food while the dog is also eating, and play with the fur between her toes. They are brilliant travelers in a car, having clocked up around 2000 klms so far, due to being bottle fed, they have been away on holidays with us as well as to work, netball training etc.

Smiggins was adopted on 12 July 2009 after 1 month in foster care
