Itzy, Witzy & Bitzy

So it begins….

The first of this year’s arrivals are here courtesy of a helpful human being placing 5 week old kittens still feeding from their Mother into a tied up feed sack thrown into a Chania refuse bin. A passer-by heard them screaming & climbed in to rescue them & kindly brought them to us.

Despite the usual dehydration & starvation they are very talkative (you can hear them the other end of the garden!) they love humans & are starting to play & we are weaning them early as they are so hungry.

Predictably they have mild cat flu & the usual parasites which we have already started treating including a hot bath & scrub with a toothbrush as they were filthy little beings!

Itzy (♂), Bitzy (♂) & Witzy (♀) need a loving home they will be vaccinated, neutered & micro-chipped.

If anyone has friends or relatives living in the UK, Netherlands or Switzerland we will pay for their care, veterinary bills, pet passports & microchips if the adopters can assist with travel costs (€70-€200 depending upon method of transport).
