Default Does Anyone Want a Kitten

I'm pretty sure my villa is bloody magnet for all things unwanted and unloved, and now a tiny black kitten has decided to loiter in the garden.

I already have 2 rescue cats, husband spotted the kitten and said no immeditely, so keeping it isn't an option. Also, I am pregnant, so really can do without a load more cat poo in to the bargain to be honest.

It looks maybe a month old at most, is very cute in a trampy sort of way and is not at all skittish.

Anyone????????? I am happy to deliver.

Or if anyone knows of anywhere I can take it where it won't get destroyed?

Thanks in advance.

take a few pics if you can, then register with dubizzle and put an ad on there, I did that with my last one and I had 3 calls within an hour of putting the ad up.

Our local stray Tabby is expecting again. Last time she brought two of her dead kittens home to show us. Saw no others so I guess they all died. This time with the girls both at home for the summer, it would be nice for the cat to have them inside. Unfortunately, we cannot get her to stay. Any tips? We have set up a basket with blanket but the cat seems only interested in getting fed. We don't want to keep her indoors by force.

if you keep them inside you'll have to keep them, put a basket somewhere with shade, we had a thing we hung our washing on, erm, a clothes horse type of thing and the cats loved it under there.

If they are inside, why the shade?

sorry that was outside, just outside the doors, so they could come in but they preferrred to sleep in the basket in the shade outside, I think they sometimes get scared inside the house.

Okay but I really have no control over where the cat decides to give birth. She never sits in one place for more than 10 minutes but is always sat by the garage door at 5.30pm for when I arrive home. Hopefully she will be considerate and have the kittens when we are around but last time it was probably in one of the gardens nearby .

Unfortunately you don't. She will find somewhere quiet and dark to have them.
