Homing update - 15th October

We have had a fantastic couple of weeks homing; the girls at Axhayes have been very busy getting cats ready to leave the centre. We have had another good weekend rehoming our long-stayers. You may remember our kittens Foxglove and Bluebell in a previous blog many months ago. These kittens are famous on our social networking sites; they have starred in our youtube video called “The Life of an Axhayes kitten”. This video took me 9-12 weeks to record.

Nearly seven months later, these adorable kittens have finally found a new home together. Their new owners saw their video on our youtube channel and fell in love with them. We were so delighted on Saturday afternoon, myself and CCA Diane gave them lots of cuddles while getting them ready to go. Before our cats/kittens leave the centre, we give them a quick check over, we weigh them, we flea and worm them if necessary and we double check their microchips are correct on their paperwork. Once all of this is done, they are put into a cat carrier and leave the building with their new owners.
We are so pleased for them, Diane and I saw them born on Mother's Day afternoon and after videoing them for the first 9-12 weeks of their life we’ve all had a soft spot for them. It was really nice to see them go. We've already had an update via Facebook telling us they are doing well, Foxglove is enjoying his tummy tickled.  

This afternoon our long stayer Lennie who needed a special home because he has FIV (Feline Immunodefiency Virus) has finally found a new home. He has always been very popular with our visitors, volunteers, and of course our CCAs. He likes to sit at the front of his pen calling out to passers by (Meow meow meow) he loves to chat and churp to people. Lennie has been with us since April, now after six months, he has finally found himself a new home and new family. We are delighted for him. Good things come to those who wait.

You may also remember our blind kitten appeal a couple of months ago. We had two partially sighted kittens Ganesh and Harvey (and his sister Bianca). Harvey and Bianca went to their new home this weekend. Their new owners have already been in touch with us via our Facebook page. They have been renamed them Jack and Sparrow. They are really enjoying their new home; they have been lying in the sunshine in the kitchen, playing lots, running about and enjoying cuddles on their laps. We are so pleased Harvey and Bianca are happy in their new home after spending all summer with us.

Their siblings Sid and Maz have also been reserved this weekend, and will be going to their new home later this week. These adorable kittens have also starred in two youtube videos of their own. These kittens came to us very poorly and weak, after lots of TLC, they bounced back into healthy happy kittens. We are so pleased they have all been rehomed.

We thought we'd share this photo of Harvey and Bianca (Jack and Sparrow) relaxing on a lap at home.
