GOODBYE LIBRARY KITTENS!
After 3 wonderful weeks with our visiting library kittens
(Cheshire, Dinah and Snowdrop), they no longer need to be fed as frequently, as they are growing fast! Miss Jessica will continue to foster them at home until they are 8 weeks old at which time they will be
available for adoption from Hi Tor Animal Shelter.
We will miss our kitten friends, but know they will find some great homes.
Thank you to the 71 visitors who came to watch them grow!
