Dave & Ralph each came into rescue separately but have teamed up here and would like to find a furever home together. Ralph is about 6 months old now …. he was dumped when he was about 4 months and thankfully found his way to us. Dave is about 10 months and as far as we know was born on the streets, but fed and cared for local residents, and came into rescue shortly after Ralph.
Ralph is a very confident, naughty little monkey …… typical kitten “if it moves chase it, if it stands still climb it”. Dave is understandably more timid but very sweet natured and his confidence has come on in leaps and bounds since he came into rescue. They live alongside our resident cats (not the easiest group to get along with) quite happily. They haven’t had contact with dogs or children whilst in rescue so don’t know how well they would cope with them. We suspect that they would be fine with sensible children who were able to allow them space to get used to them. For all Dave’s fear when he initally came into rescue and indoors for the first time in his life, he’s never once lashed out.
They’ve both been neutered and microchipped. Ralph has finished his vaccinations and Dave has started his. Health checks are fine and they’re up to date with flea and worm treatment. They’ve not been allowed out whilst in rescue though obviously both of them have been outdoors prior to this, and will want a safe garden to run off some of their crazy kitten energy in once they’re settled.
They’d fit well into lots of different homes /families so long as family members have a little patience to allow David to continue to grow in confidence and fluorish in his own time. Homes with other tolerant cats would be fine.
We always homecheck prior to adoption and ask a minimum adoption donation of £75 for a neutered kitten.
