Boris & Basil

Two very lucky black cats

A garden shed is being pulled down, unknown to the owners inside are two tiny kittens, mum is nowhere to be found! The little orphans were part of a feral colony, unfortunately for them most of the females had already been spayed so the chance of a surrogate mum was highly unlikely. However, luckily for them Lynda had been called to pick them up. Boris had very infected eyes and was unable to open them. The vet estimated their age as 10 days. It took dedication from Lynda to feed these tiny kittens, every 2/3 hours, day and night for the first couple of weeks, tiring and demanding but so rewarding. No one would even know if they would survive! Being constantly handled at such a young age has produced an extremely affectionate pair of kittens. At six weeks of age they were transferred into a pen before being rehomed. Boris and Basil have been very lucky, they survived their early ordeal and have been lucky enough to find a permanent loving home together.
