Rescuing a kitten from the rescue centre

Yesterday we went off to Boreham Wood and bought a cat bed for the cat we do not have yet, but today we had an appointment to visit a cat rescue centre in Watford. We borrowed a pet carrier from a neighbour and eventually found the right address.

We wanted a tabby kitten,but the kitten chose us, and after signing all the papers and paying the 'contribution' of £75.00 we went home. The kitten settled in happily, but would not eat any of the food we had got for it. We discovered that it had diarrhoea, and we phoned to make an appointment with the vet. The kitten was purring all the time it was being held, but wanted to be carried all the time. When we wanted to go to bed I put a hot water bottle in his bed, and he settled into it purring, and slept till it was morning.

Diarrhoea is nasty. He's lucky to have an attentive mother like you.

Thanks, just at the moment I am feeling more like his grandmother!
