[EDIT (Update received on 19 Jun 08, AM): The kitten has been adopted.]
Just got this in the mail: This kitten is apparently an oprhan as the mail originators, A & J found a dead cat killed in a road accident at the same location just the day before they found this baby.
The original mail was dated 13 Jun, which means today is the deadline A & J stipulated as the day they will send this baby to SPCA. However, the person who forwarded me this mail say A&J are able to hold on to this baby until tomorrow. If you are able to help, please use the comment box at the end of this post to send us your name and contact, we will forward to A & J:
On Wed night I found this cute, tiny kitten, lonely and lost on the opposite side of the road to where an adult cat had fallen victim to “road-kill” the previous day (possibly it’s mother). We’ve taken it home but we are only able to look after it until Monday, after which we will probably have to take it to the SPA (where apparently 81% of the animals they receive end up being put to sleep).
If you would like a cute little kitten, or know anyone who would, please call, sms or email us.
We took it to the vet this morning who gave it the all-clear, and she has been thoroughly licked clean by TinTin (our ridiculously friendly poodle puppy)!
We estimate it is only about 3-4 weeks old so it should be ready to be weaned onto solid food within this week (mixed with water/milk). Though very sweet, being so young it needs more regular attention for the next few weeks than Jenny and I are able to give to it.
Grateful if you can ask any friends you think might be interested for themselves or their family members.
Alex and Jenny
