We are lucky enough to be fostering two kittens from the cat shelter! Above, Scout (female). The kittens are four weeks old and are incredibly sweet. But they do have to be fed milk from a bottle every four hours! I have been feeling lethargic these past two days because I have been getting up at 6am to feed them. Hopefully they will be able to move onto solid foods soon. The cat shelter is inundated with kittens at the moment; fostering lightens their burden. The kitten’s mum caught mastitis (inflammation of the breast tissue, which is incidentally what many female cows suffer from when producing milk for humans) and as such could not feed her kittens any more.
In other news I donated blood for the first time today – took me long enough! I felt a little woozy afterwards, but nothing a glass of orange squash at the centre couldn’t fix.
