THIS week’s Rescue Pet of the Week is a sweet female cat, who at only two years old will have had three litters by the time she is adopted.
She has endured more than a young cat should have been through, and highlights the dire need to to desex animals to stop unwanted litters, and the unnecessary stress of litters on cats who are often too young.
This gorgeous girl came into care three weeks ago with Kitty Rescue Project, along with her two kittens, Lenny and Loui.
News Of The Area featured her two kittens in an edition of our Rescue Pet of the Week, and we were pleased to learn they were adopted together by a loving home.
Named Skully, she was quite malnourished and anaemic when she came into care, so she has needed a lot of tender loving care to get her healthy.
Amanda from the Kitty Rescue Project told News Of The Area, “We have been working on getting her health sorted, and giving her a much better life.”
“We have realised now that she was already pregnant again when she came into care, so now we are working on getting her healthy before her last litter arrives.”
“She is too young to have had so many litters, so we are looking forward to her being able to be adopted and live a happy and content life being looked after and loved,” she said.
Skully is is a sweet, affectionate and very loving cat, who loves cuddles.
She won’t be ready for adoption until she has had her last litter, but enquiries to become her forever family are welcome.
News Of The Area will endeavour to share news of their arrival and progress when they are ready for new homes.
The KITTY Rescue Project rescues whole litters, cares for them within their volunteer foster homes, and ensures
that all the necessary veterinary work is completed before adopting them to loving families.
Male kittens are $200 and Female kittens are $250.
The adoption fee includes desexing, microchipping, vaccinations, flea and worm treatments.
The KITTY Rescue Project is also looking for new volunteers to help foster new litters and older cats.
