On Tuesday of last week, our cat was killed on the road in front of our house. She had just given birth to five kittens five days previously. We were very upset and distressed by her death and we looked at her precious kittens and wondered how we were going to cope with the effort required in looking after them, especially as we also have two dogs and two rabbits and cattle.
Recently, three calves were born and they were all poorly and two have since died. The other calf is thriving but still requires care.
We have been caring for the kittens since their mother died and it is exhausting and time-consuming as they require bottle feeding during the day and night, but they are delightful little creatures and they need us.
However, because of the pressures upon us, you will understand that we cannot post articles as often as in times past, but we will add articles to our blog as often as possible, hoping that life will soon be a little less stressful.
