Pippin came to us at the end of June, at which point we think she must have been about 12 weeks old. She’d been found a week previously by a young woman, wet through and wandering in an area where there were dangerous dogs. She took her in and attempted to find who she belonged to but no one claimed her and the little one wasn’t chipped. She was unable to keep her permanently and so Pip came into rescue.
Obviously we’ve no idea what happened to her before this point, but she’s a very confident happy little kit. When we arrived to collect her she was curled up with the young girl in the house, watching TV, very settled and happy. She hissed a bit at first when she met the other kittens in rescue but after about 24 hours was running and tumbling with them as though they’d grown up together.
She’s been flead and wormed, and will be microchipped and vaccinated before she goes to her new home. She’ll need to be kept indoors until she’s at least 6 months old, and until she’s been neutered. After that it would be nice for her to have a safe garden to play in. We’d prefer her to go to a home where there are other friendly animals, or to one where the humans are around quite a lot of the time.
We always home check prior to agreeing to adoptions and ask a minimum donation of £60 to adopt a kitten. Please check out our adoption process here: http://www.8livescatrescue.org/adoption-process.html
