It’s finally time for Nougat to go home!
|Could I be part of your family?|
|Nougat when she was a helpless wee one|
Nougat was found at Tuas fire station at one week old with her umbilical cord still attached. Abandoned by the mother cat, she wouldn’t have survived very long. Her rescuers, who are also our veteran foster care volunteers, Diana and Rashid, brought her into their home and fed kitten milk replacement (KMR) regularly round the clock. She showed great will to survive and gained weight steadily.
With the help of foster siblings Jelly and Gizmo, Nougat was taught the tabby ways and soon she was gaining valuable inter-cat socialisation through play. This is important to cultivate early on so that kittens learn the rules of good cat behaviour around others. For example, if they bite too hard when playing, no one will play with them. So they learn to tone it down with playmates.
|Gizmo's the likelier one to entertain Nougat's play|
After vet visits and close supervision, her fosterers narrowed the cause down to Nougat having a sensitivity towards the Addiction Brushtail wet canned food, which is the regular brand the cats at the cattery eat. She is now eating Zealandia Brushtail with no problems.

If you love cats but cannot adopt, consider volunteering with us! We need more volunteers in foster care (roving or weekly shifts doing clinical care for the cats, volunteers will be trained); email email@example.com. If you want to help with outreach (i.e. cat therapy!), email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you can't commit to regular volunteering but still want to help, try the ad hoc clean/play shifts.
