Hi all….

Danielle here again, you may remember in my last update I mentioned the tale of 2 mums and their 11 kittens which we had placed in a special nursery area – Blitzen being one of those babies and I remember she had a fan – so I thought I would update you on these beautiful babies.

Eleven in total, 2 beautiful tabby twins, 1 black boy and 8 gorgeous black and whites. We named them after Santa’s reindeer; so take a breath and meet: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donna and Blitzen; after running out of names we decided on Elf, Star and Beth.

They are now 7 weeks old and have just gone through their latest batch of worming – so they certainly weren’t my friends for a while (especially my girl blitzen avoided me) but they soon got over it and were climbing all over me within a day.

Two little kittens have been reserved but the rest are still waiting for their homes. Just look at the faces – makes your heart melt.

I’m sure I will have more nursery updates for you very soon – and hopefully by then a few more of them will be reserved for homes. They all have such little characters they will make best friends to any person.

Lots of love and Happy Christmas to everyone.

Blitzen and Danielle

  1. ‘Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens’ from ‘Some of my favourite things’ Kittens and of course their diddy whiskers and whisker pads are definitely some of my favourite things and these little darlings are no exception 🙂 I’m so glad they are all safe with you and not fighting for survival in this awful weather. They are beautiful 🙂

  2. Thank u all so much for ur kind words regarding my Queenie (my 18 year old cat who I lost on Friday) I adopted her 2 years ago from Ark as a 16 year old with hyperthyroidism – she had been. There over 6 months and awas a grumpy old thing but I couldn’t bear to see her there anymore as she was getting very depressed – she was the first cat that I ever owned and I may. Not have had for a very long ttime but she made her mark and was my girl through and through. I will miss her terribly but she is free from pain and I hope someone up there will look after her till I can join her again xxx

    • Danielle if there is no one else up there to look after Queenie for you, our late mother will certainly do so. She was the greatest cat lover ever and I can just picture her there surrounded by our cats we have loved and lost and by all the cats who had no one waiting for them there too.
      Take care, I feel so sad for you xx

    • Oh no that’s awful – you must be feeling terrible I’m so sorry I wish there’s something I could do or say to make you feel better. 18 years is such a long time I can’t imagine how it is to lose and long time companion after so many years.

      Thank you for writing this article and coming and sharing even thought you are going through such a difficult time. I hope she had a peaceful last few days with you. I hope you got to spend whatever quality time you needed to say goodbye to her.

      Oh dear – well good luck and hope you feel better when the time comes. RIP Queenie – we are thinking of you.

  4. Just heard about the dreadful weather last night where you are and the damage, hoping you get as much support as Kays Hill have had, you are so far out from civilisation it must be even worse there!
