Following the arrival of our new little ones and that their foster carer, Mandy is a first time carer for mum and kittens. We thought it might be nice for Mandy to keep a blog of her experience and we can all watch these little ones grow and develop before being ready to be re-homed.
So welcome to our blog “The Life and Times of Two Cheeky Monkey’s”
Following their birth on 6 March 2018, Mandy has dealt with the sad delivery of one stillborn kitten but these two are feeding well off mum and today, the first post of her blog Mandy tells us:
They are enjoying a well-earned snooze after pushing each other out of the way for a feed on mummy! They are already cheeky monkeys. I will get more pictures and will weigh them later. I am weighing them daily to make sure they are gaining weight. I am getting lots of support from Carole, our senior foster carer. I will update you soon as I am also going to try to sex them!

Let’s see what tomorrow brings for our journey in life😻.

We’ve reached day 5, and today we were feeling a little bit camera shy…
It’s only one more day until we are a WHOLE week old! Mandy and mummy have been giving us lots of cuddles as always, and we’ve had a good day.
It won’t be long now before our eyes are open, and we can be even cheekier.. we wonder if Mandy is ready hehe.

We are feeling super wiped out now, it’s definitely time for a snooze!
Both of our eyes are now open, which means the fun begins now hehe. Mandy says she is fallen in love with us already, and she will miss us lots when we go.
We have both put on lots of weight, we are little porkies!! But we are happy and healthy ❤️❤️

Wednesday 21st March 2018
Day 13 and we have had a busy day with mummy. We’ve been trying (and failing) to chase her and play. We are still really wobbly, so we just fall over hehe. Mandy has been crawling around after us as we are starting to get quicker😂
Mandy tells us that we can’t be reserved until we are 6 weeks old… but she did say an amazing lady called Emma has fallen in love with us both… how exciting!!
Wednesday 21st – Saturday 24th March 2018
So we’ve missed a few days as Mandy’s internet has been playing up. We are so alert and on the move now… there’s no stopping us!!

We are becoming cheekier by the day, and have now found our feet. We have Mandy running round in circles as we get quicker and livelier every day.
Monday 26th March 2018
So we now have names, and we are really finding our feet. Mandy says we are becoming cheeky little rascals hehe, she is having to kitten proof the room as we try and get into every nook and cranny we can.
Our little teeth are visible now, and we are growing up sooooo fast! We are having great fun and love exploring 😀

Today we have exploring lots, and have even started climbing onto the cat tree… although we then got stuck and couldn’t get back down. We had to cry and Mandy came to the rescue hehe.
We also both tried a little bit of water, although Bam Bam fell in it 😂.
We are looking forward to a fun filled Easter weekend.
Friday 30th March 2018

We love our cat tree, it’s our favourite thing to play on and we love being in each others company.
Monday 9th April 2018
Today we enjoyed lots more playtime, this time it was in our new play pen! It gave mummy a little break and meant Mandy didn’t need eyes in the back of her head to keep an eye on us hehe.
Mandy finds it hard to take pictures of us now because we are ALWAYS on the move .
Tuesday 10th March 2018
It’s been a day filled with playtime… well that’s just a normal day for us now we’re getting so grown up.

We can’t believe we are 5 weeks old today! Time has gone so quickly… it’s only 4 more weeks until we are old enough to go our forever home!
Wednesday 11th April 2018
Today we learnt how to escape the play pen… and terrified Mandy in the process hehe. Bam Bam was the first to escape, and I promptly followed…
Mandy has now put a lid on the pen because she says we are too cheeky! We also enjoyed play fighting on the sofa, we’ve had a great day.
We are on the move all the time now, and there’s no stopping us…

We are being naughty…we are 9 weeks old now and we have so much energy and are running, playing chase and hide and seek with one another. We are moving around so fast that our foster mum Mandy is spending lots of time trying to take photographs of us 🙂 We are super excited that it will soon be time for us to be rehomed but in the meantime we will keep our foster mum on her toes with more hide and seek 😉
