Dear friends and supporters of Kitten Corner
Just a reminder of what our organization stands for …
“Kitten Corner is a registered, small pro-quality of life, non-profit organization, dedicated to helping
the abandoned/neglected or abused and feral cats and kittens.
KC consists entirely of dedicated volunteers with no source of outside funding”.
URGENT ADOPTIONS NEEDED PLEASE?!
During the past couple of months, KC (although full to capacity) took in some beautiful adult cats and
kittens. These babies are now in dire need of homes as we do not have any space to rescue any more kittens.
By adopting one (or more) of our cats, a new space is opened for rescuing another kitty in need of urgent loving
care. If you have been considering adopting a lovely kitten or adult cat, why not visit us (by appointment only)
and come adopt the perfect addition to the family.
To make an appointment for viewing, please contact Caron 082 577 8809.
Not only is KC home to many kittens and cats waiting to be adopted, but also to some stunning special needs cats.
These cats have all been so badly abused at some stage in their lives that they are either too physically and/or mentally
disabled or just too scared to be re-homed and therefore stay behind at the KC sanctuary and we therefore appeal to
you to please sponsor one of these babies by signing the R50.00 monthly debit order at your bank.
During November, we were contacted by a very concerned member of the public about kittens in a factory. They managed to catch two
of them, but the third one managed to escape. The following weekend the third one was trapped and all 3 were taken to our vet.
The little ginger (named Morgan) was born with deformed hind legs but is doing fine, he will however have to remain in foster care as he
might develop health problems later in his life. The one little black male (named Kahlua) is a stunning little chap and is now ready to be
adopted. He is the sweetest little thing and loves attention. The other black one (named Guinness) was unfortunately put to sleep due to
Guinness Kahlua Morgan
FLAVOUR OF THE WEEK?
Being a NPO kitty shelter, we receive cats and kittens from many different places for example from building sites, highways, shopping
centres, to name but a few. But sometimes we do receive pedigrees as well. When we do receive cats like Persians and Devon Rexes
(for example), we always try and find out the history of the cat first by tracing the breeder in order to trace the owner (if the cat should be
lost). In many cases we do however trace the owners who are then so delighted to be reunited with their babies. But in some cases
though, we do make the decision to rather re-home the cats or give them back to their breeder as their conditions are not what it is
supposed to be. These cases are called “flavour of the week”, where the people bought the specific breed as it was featured in a movie
or in a magazine. We appeal to you that should you decide to buy a pedigree cat, do your homework first to see if the specific breed
will suit your lifestyle as some breeds require high maintenance.
