Thanks to all who responded for this appeal, fate intervened last night when we were phoned by a couple with an abandoned kitten.

After days stuck indoors with bad weather full of energy she raced off to investigate her fields and trees, she slipped from her favourite olive tree dying from the trauma of her injuries.

Monday 1am, Pippen followed Pippa
We have very sad news about Pippa, despite antibiotics, sub cutaneous saline, and any & every intervention we could think of that might help, she was unable to eat or keep fluids down & left us at dawn.
A salutary lesson for everybody to learn… do not ever give cow’s milk or condensed milk to newborn kittens.
Her brother Pippen is still with us although very frail, his future is uncertain. We are doing everything we can for him.
