Kitten season begins at Woodlands Animal Sanctuary!

Kitten season has begun at Woodlands Animal Sanctuary!

The centre has already welcomed their first couple of kittens requiring round the clock care.

Last Thursday volunteers were made aware of two kittens in a garden in Liverpool and they are now being hand fed every two hours. 

A spokesperson said: “The adorable sisters are weighing in at four weeks old and have received some medication already, but it is a case of seeing if any symptoms of illnesses develop over the next few days. They both had slightly sticky eyes on admittance and are now sneezing, so they are currently on a course of antibiotics with an eye cream too.

“This weekend they have just started to lap food, which does give their carers some relief from around the clock feeding. But committing to two hourly feeds even for 18 hours a day is still a big deal.

“But this is one of the reasons the team at Woodlands do what they do and they wouldn’t have the sleepless nights any other way. It is quite common to see kittens poking out from the tops of the animal carers keeping warm if they are no longer with their mum!”
