After an awfully long time waiting,  Shadow is now with a loving couple in a neat little house with a neat little garden.



Shadow was taken (with his brother who has been adopted) to a local vet surgery  by a large animal welfare organisation to be put to sleep. This national rescue was full, apparently.    They were orphaned and needed hand- feeding by pipette every few hours.     The vet contacted us and asked for our help, he wanted them to have a chance if possible.  We  were full and penniless but squeezed them in and their fosterer took on the task of rearing them.

Fast forward a few weeks  and look at him !  Bouncy and  cheeky,Shadow has mixed in well with his  fosterer’s small dog, cats and young children and is a delight.  Doing all the crazy kitten things that crazy kittens do, such as looking for stuff down the back of the sofa and chasing and playing and sleeping!

Shadow shares his fosterer with his best friend Spike.  Shadow and Spike would be happy to be kept together or homed separately


  Shadow has been treated for fleas and worms and will be micro-chipped before adoption. All our cats are checked by a Vet.


All cats will be home-checked prior to adoption. Kittens should initially be kept indoors

until they are neutered at around 6 months.  Also they should have supervised and limited access at first outside and never be allowed to stay out at night, as they are vulnerable to many dangers.   Sorry but we  do not home on or near busy roads.
