A litter of 5 tiny one week old kittens joined the GAR family 13 weeks ago. They were bottle fed around the clock and bundled into warm baskets on a heatpad for quite awhile. They encountered gastro problems at a stage when they transitioned to solid food which was an unpleasant time for them as they were needing to be bathed daily and medicated. The washing machine was running hot trying to keep up with their bedding! However all kittens triumphed and began to gain weight and grow at a normal rate.
They are all full of energy and curiosity, and well socialised with other cats, kittens dogs and people. Growing up in a home listening to all normal household noises – not much phases them.
They are all well and truly used to being handled and love sitting on laps, curling up on the bed at night and sleeping on the chairs under the kitchen table! They all like to be where their family is in the home. They are all indoor cats and have no need to be outside. Their hunting needs are met with toys and exercise is taken care of playing chasey throughout the house!
All kittens use scratching poles (not furniture) and are completely litter trained. They are all gentle souls who never use their claws when playing. They love being with family. They are all a delight to have in the home.
Whilst they do have many similarities they do have many differences…
Meet Bilbo – aka Billy!
Billy is the only boy in the litter. He is very gentle and loves/craves attention and is genuinely pleased to sit on laps. He adores being stroked and cuddled and purrs loudly in appreciation. He does not like to be alone. He often chirps and calls for company wandering through the house. He also needs to be with another kitten/cat. He is particularly friendly with Elsa. He is a talkative playful boy. He needs to be with a human who is happy to spend time with him – he is an “in your face” type of boy! He is very loving and affectionate and would not like to be alone.
Billy is fully vaccinated, microchipped, desexed, wormed and flead and a very healthy, fit, and happy kitten
