this will be long,
but i will only tell you about the ones we have now.
bergkhamp came to us about 6 years ago , he was about 4 months old and was a stray. he had been at some point hit by a car and had a broken pelvis , he was full of flees and worms , he also had ear mites. he had x rays but his pelvis had already set itsself , so he didnt need anything for it , just a dose of antibiotics. we kept him after putting posters up of him no one returned out calls. at the time we did have another cat called taz , at the time we didnt have him chiped and he went missing very sad ,
then bergkhamp got very lonely so we was looking for a kitten to adopt , when my partners brothers mate died from a drug overdose. he had to old cats , father and son , one was 7 the other was 11 , so we took them in and everything was great. there names were/are hansel and grey stoke (gracy for short) hansel when he was 9 last year janaury died of kidney cancer.
thats when lilly came to us , one of the mums around the school was going to give her to a rescue as she had brought another dog which didnt like cats. she had told us she was spayed ect.. she had what was called a slient heat so i had no idea , about 4 weeks later i found out she was pregnant. i have never owned a female cat before her so i had no idea. she lost 3 of her babys and had a c section , the last baby stitch died at 4 days old . they didnt spay her at the same time as the c section , so they told me to wait 8 weeks before i could.
she pinned a lot so we asked around rescues to see if they had any ophorn kittens but they didnt. we then found someone on the net who had to find homes for her kittens at only 4 weeks old due to them going on hoilday.
so we picked up 2 , nither had even touched kitten food and was still nursing from mum and still couldnt go to the toliet on there own. there now 10 months old and called patch and fluffy.
lilly got out 2 weeks after taking in the 2 kittens and went missing for 6 weeks . she came back pregnant and the vets said she was 2 far alog to spay her. she had 3 healthy kittens called tigerlilly , forest and midnight, midnight was homed to me sister and the other 2 are here with me.
so that makes 7 if you have lost count that we had then.
then came theo who we are still despretly looking for a home for him . somebody didnt want him no more and was thinking about putting him in a black bag to dispose of.
i took him in his about 19 months old , i cleaned him up had him neutered but he hates other cats.
then came Tom he has been a stray around here for about a year , when it snowed this year i brought him in , had him neutered fleed ect.. and now he goes out durning the day , and is always home at night. he just lays out in the garden most of the day.
then we took on anne , she had 3 litters before the one she just had , the lady didnt want to put up with kittens again so we took her on , her kittens are a week old now , she had 2. might be keeping them but not sure yet there names are candy and strips.
then last week i was round the bins and thats where chloe came in to our lives . so in ways i kinda rescued most of them , but in my own way.
told ya it would be long lol
