Aiko and Aimi were rescued from Toh Guan industrial estate. We were up to our ears in kittens in November, but the area is very dangerous for cats and we just about managed to take them in with the help of a #FosNet fosterer. The mother cat, who was named Akemi (meaning bright beauty in Japanese), was in the process of moving her litter of newborns from her birthing nest in a warehouse to a warm spot under a truck when the truck drove off. One kitten was taken in by the truck driver and two were left behind in a shuttered warehouse, but soon rescued by Akemi with the intervention of a human rescuer. Akemi was soon trapped by the rescuer so that she could nurse and raise the remaining two kittens, who were named Aimi and Aiko by their fosterer.

Aiko is the chubbier tabby boy, and his name means love child. He loves to play tag and tackle his sister. He learned from his mom to hiss at the foster dog, but that bad habit it slowly fading. Aimi, whose name means beauty, is a tortioseshell kitty with a sweet temperament to match her name. She was the first to explore her surroundings and go up to meet her foster humans. Both kittens and their mom suffered from bouts of ear mites and fleas, which were treated with Revolution, medicated baths, as well as cedar oil, which worked particularly well.
Their fosterer and Akemi have been through a lot raising Aimi and Aiko from wee newborns to healthy, strong, three month-old kittens. They are now on a diet of raw meat and goat’s milk and have been dewormed and given their first round of vaccinations. It’s time for them to go to their forever home!
