For those who haven’t been following our facebook page, all the new arrivals are aged around the 8-12 weeks mark, from five different litters. These curious little adventurers are now enjoying their foster homes and exploring their new worlds.
Foster carer Chloe is caring for Noora, who arrived heavily pregnant in late October and had five black and tortoiseshell on her second night in care. Other foster carers are looking after two very active ginger boys, Widget and Sprocket, who arrived snuffily from Kingston Pound, with a bout of flu but have since recovered. There is also Thelma, a black kitten from a Toowoomba animal rescue that assist farmers with their pets and rehoming accidental litters.
Jay and her family heroically fostered (in addition to their other fosters) nine kittens from two litters, dumped in a box at the local pound at just a few weeks old. A mix of gorgeous black, grey, tortoiseshell and ginger kittens, including a very rare female ginger. Seven of these – Coco, Bella, Lady Gaga, Harvey, Ed, Felix and Charlie - are available now for pre-adoption.
When they arrived at their new foster homes in late October, Furry Friends Animal Rescue Queensland spent over $500 in vet consultations, flea and worm treatments and food to get them started on their way. These costs are likely to triple or more in the next coming weeks, as they each need to be desexed, vaccinated and microchipped before they can be made available for adoption. Their adoption fees do not cover these costs in total. So far we have received around $400 in donations from generous supporters in our Name a Kitten facebook campaign. If you want to help please see our donations page.
You can stay up to date with all our kittens’ progress through the FFARQ facebook page. If you are interested in adopting any of these furbabies, be quick! These fascinating felines won’t be available for long.
