|Moe and Melody when they were ~ 3 weeks old|
Found in a drain in a private estate, without any mother cat, Moe and Melody came to us as orphaned kittens. They needed to be bottle fed at the time, and then weaned onto solid food.
|Dubbed the “cow babies” when they were, well, babies|
They had to stay at our Foster Care Volunteers’ house when they were still on milk (the volunteers take turns to host them), as they needed round the clock feeding. When they were fully weaned they came back to the shelter to get to know their foster

They went through the usual kitten issues – worms and parasites – had to be dewormed and put on Revolution. They also got vet checked and vaccinated when they were of age. We taught them to eat, drink and use the litter box independently. Most of all, we acquainted them with positive human contact. Both kittens are now extremely friendly and affectionate with humans and with other cats, trained to be suitable as house cats.

Moe is more of a cat’s cat, a bit of a stoner kitty who likes to chill out a bit more than his sister Melody, who looks like a boy with her moustache and plays as rowdily as one too. Both enjoy playing a lot though, being their age, now 2.5-3 months old.
