    He is a little cream tabby Persian x. He was about 3-4weeks old when he first came to me and a product of a back street breeder selling on kittens far to young :(
    We were contacted by some local vets that asked if we could take him on. As he was so young I took him on as I have a lot of experience with hand rearing kittens. He was brought with two puppies that the owner is keeping, but the vets will keep a close eye on and contact us should she need to re home them as well.
    He is coming along really nicely, and seems to be picking up Teddy my naughty birmans, habits of stealing socks and under wear and carry them around in his mouth. He takes the things he steals into a crate that I have for him lol
    I had a lot of trouble trying to get him to use his litter tray as I think where he had been with two small puppies he thought he had to go on the newspaper :( .Any paper left laying around he thinks is where he has to go on.He is going into his tray all on his own now though. He is gaining weight nicely as he was a little bag of bones when I got him.He is also slowly getting used to being groomed, which he will need done at least once a day as he gets older,as he has semi long thick Persian like fur. I keep you all updated on this little man and what he gets up to while he is in my care. He is now coming up 9 weeks old and will not be up for adoption until he has had is 2nd Vaccination.

    no I not going to keep him:( if I didn't have the mini zoo I have now I would be very very tempted though, as he is such a little character. Its all part of rescue you can't keep them all as much as you would like too.

    I personally have been volunteering in rescue for many years now. I co run a rescue site called Animallifelineuk Animal Lifeline UK • Index page we help rescues with things like transport,home checking, fostering,re homing, fund raising etc. We sometimes take on animals ourselves that come to us through some of the vets we know well, like this little one. If you are interested in becoming a foster please join our site and pm bella134 our foster coordinator.she will arrange a home check for you, if you pass then you can offer to foster any animals that come through our site (though some rescues may want to do another home check themselves).:)

    Here is a pic my new foster kitten. She is only 4 weeks old and is a Tonkinese x Persian her mother has rejected her. The person that owned her vet told her it was quite all right to re home kittens at 3-4 weeks old arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrg! the lady sold the rest of the litter but couldn't sell her so has handed her in to us. She has been checked over by the vet who can find nothing wrong with her other than she needs feeding up and to be socialised more, which she will get here. I will keep you all updated on her

    I shouldn't be looking at kitties as I lost my Felix yesterday. But this little man is beautiful. I will keep an eye on this thread and see when he is ready for a new home. I may be able to give him one if the timing is right.

    We have named her Whiskey for now. She won't be ready for adoption until she has had both her vacs either.

    Have another 4 3week old babies coming that were found under a brush:(
