    Hi all I have not been on for a long while but I'm hoping to get some help for a friend. She lost her 2 cats earlier this year at separate times. Her old boy got cancer and his organs shut down and she was devastated too loose him after she had him for so long. Her little girl was only young and unexpectedly got an illness (I can't remember what).
    She has had cats for many years and is missing the sound of kitty paws running up and Dow the stairs. She is looking for a pair as she feels having just one would make him lonely. I have looked on a few websites and rang a few people but all kittens have gone :-(
    I feel partly responsible for helping find her new furbabies as I told her about 2 boys that I was told about but they were already gone :-(

    You could also rescue 2 of the kittens who have only 1 eye each, after an infection. Still have kittens, but have rescued 2 that have really suffered, in memory of the 2 she couldn't save.

    Tried to reply several times.
    I know a sanctuary that has two sets of sibling kittens in need of homes. One set is about 4 months the other set not ready for another week.

    Thank u guys for all the replies I have had a busy day with work. This morning I found 3 kittens needing a home 2 of which my friend said she wanted I made arrangements for her to go and see them and take them hone if she was happy. So at 8.00 when I finished work I got a phone call to say I needed to give round and help her name 3 little kittens as she couldn't leave 1 on its own lol. When I arrived they were hunting for a lost kitty. We searched for well over an hour trying to find the lil girl we turned the place upside down twice then found her hiding behind a wardrobe that we had already looked behind three times it turns out the gap at the back was big enough for her to get underneath. She has got one very mischievous ginger tabby boy who is beautiful and two gorgeous tiger tabby girls which r not as adventurous as the boy but not that shy.

    ah thats lovely to hear. i know what you mean about getting into places you wouldnt dream of. both of my youngest wegies used to do this when they were 13 weeks old. they would get under the chest of drawers. when you look at them now at 13 months old and weighing approx 13lbs you wouldnt think they could have done that.
    anyway well done, what are their names?
