Our world just changed! What happens now?

IMG_0762It was a Saturday morning, I’d just opened the kitchen door when I heard a meow!

I knew that this wasn’t our cat, we didn’t have one or not at least for several years since we lost our beloved Clyde so what on earth was happening?

For sometime we have been building an extension to the side of the house and guess what? Yes, a mother cat had decided to leave us 2 little bundles of fluff.

We were very cautious to begin with, we didn’t want to scare away the mother and set up a CCTV camera to keep an eye of the little ones & gave them water and food, just incase….


We waited & waited and after 2 days it was evident that the mother was not coming back so we had no choice, I had to catch them and bring them indoors.

This was not easy, but after a few scratches and bites, they were safe and settling into their new home with their new family.

We booked them in at the local vets for a check up which went well & it was estmimated that they were approximately 4 weeks old.

We had only got a few weeks to make sure they had their vacinations so that we could either a) obtain pet passports or b) book them into a local cattery and we were sad that there was not enough time to get the pet passports in time for our next trip but as we travelled all over the UK with Clyde, this was our plan for our 2 new family members, Oscar & Claude.
