Likes: Food and not having to live in a poo grotto anymore.
Pet-Peeves: Being isolated in this tiny bathroom and not having a forever home.
Favorite Toy: Crinkle ball, catnip mice, laser toy, each other!
Favorite Nap Spot: Our new moses basket bed.
Favorite Food: Whiskas Kittens food (wet)
Skills: Giving the illusion there are 4 pitbulls in the bathroom by the noises they make.
Arrival Story: These four kittens had a hard start in life, abandoned to fend for themselves in a squalid house full of cats and kittens where only the strongest survived. A terrible situation created by an irresponsible owner who didn't believe in neutering, then left others to clear up the mess.
We were asked to house these homeless cats for one night while places were found in local rescues and 3 months later they're still here! There is a homeless cat crisis in Nottingham!!
Please spay and neuter your cats!
Bio: These cats were rescued from a squalid house where they'd been abandoned to fend for themselves by an owner who just upped and left....along with many other(30+) cats (some pregnant) and kittens. Unfortunately some cats never made it out of that house.
Spencer, Lucy and Josephine are all siblings. Tiny Tim was the only surviving member of a litter of four.
Ideally, I would love these kittens to be rehomed in pairs. They had such a bad start in life and all they had was each other - I'd feel terribly guilty about separating them all!! Any combination of the four would work as they all get on so well. If someone would like all four, that would be AMAZING! ;D
November update: Tiny Tim and Josephine went to a great new home together, now Spencer and Lucy MUST be rehomed as a pair. They are a very closely bonded brother and sister who love each other a lot!
**UPDATE NOVEMBER 2010** Spencer & Lucy don't need to find a home anymore because they're staying with us!
ABOUT TINY TIM: Tiny Tim's siblings sadly didn't make it out of that nightmare house so Tiny Tim went it alone and decided the only safe place for him was in the chimney behind the gas fire. This is where he hid until he was eventually rescued, unable to resist the lure of a hearty meal - something he hadn't had in a long time. Now he's put his past behind him and has decided to enjoy kittenhood to the full! He loves to wrestle with his 'adopted' sisters and brother and likes nothing better than to kill his toy mouse and then follow it up with a game of sparkle ball footy. His ideal day would involve all these things followed up with a mountain of food to demolish and a comfy lap to snuggle into. Tiny Tim hates his name, he thinks he should be called something manly, like 'Pantherfoot' or 'Roger' and he can't wait to be adopted so he can be renamed something more appropriate. Tiny Tim is approximately 4 months old.
ABOUT SPENCER: Lucy, Josephine and Spencer are approximately 7 months old and are here to tell you that black and white is NOT plain OR boring and any fashionable person will tell you it's a timeless combination that always looks good!
Spencer is a pretty, long limbed boy with a big secret. He is terribly shy of new people and gets the urge to hide, but after some patience & gentle pursuasion (and when he realises you're the food provider!), he'll let you in on his big secret, which is that he is actually a little softie, a gentleman and a total lovercat who LOVES your attention, especially being brushed or combed.
Spencer is the kitten who I worry for the most, due to his timidity in new situations. He will probably get overlooked by potential adopters and it's such a shame as he becomes outgoing and very loving when he gets to know you.
ABOUT LUCY: Lucy thinks her bro Spencer is the bees knees and they seem to share a special bond. This is probably because he looked after his sisters when times were tough. Lucy is an action cat with big amber eyes and a bit of tom boy. She likes to initiate wrestling bouts and chasing games with the boys...and usually wins them!
ABOUT JOSEPHINE: Josephine is a gentle,feminine little kitten who wiggles when she walks and likes to roll onto her back for a tummy tickle at every opportunity. Josephine chose her own name, she doesn't like us to call her Gizmo and thinks she absolutely does NOT look like a gremlin! All Josephine wants is a forever home where she can be a pampered princess and forget all about her past.
