One rescued hedgehog = two rescued kittens......!

Posted on

In my previous post I told of taking to a rescue centre a baby hedgehog we rescued, but the happy story does not end there.

Whilst at Munlochy Animal Aid I mentioned to Iona who runs the sanctury that in August we had had to say goodbye for the last time to Amber, our gorgeous 19 year old cat. Isla asked if we were looking for another cat and I said we would wait for the right cats at the right time.....and she produced these two beautiful female kittens, about 10 weeks old and needing a good home.

I took these pictures on my phone to show Gordon that night and as soon as he saw them he said "I think we should take them". I was glad as I had already thought of names for them, Skye with her misty grey markings (named after the Skye, the Misty Isle) and Islay (Scotland's whisky isle).

Next day we headed back up the 60 miles to Munlochy, stopping en route to buy "kitten things" like kitten food, kitten scratching post, kitten bed etc - and tiny pink collars with bells on, of course. The girls are a little timid but are eating very well. They have been to the vet today for their first vaccinations and are already wearing their collars.

They are absolutely gorgeous. We hope that we are able to give them the happy life they deserve, especially after being abandoned. Right cats, right time, right home!!!
