This morning Cheryl has been to Barton-le-Clay preschool to do a "kitten show and tell". The 3 kittens (Buzz,Ben and Roger) had cuddles with 30 children and all the staff. The children and the kittens were so well behaved.... except when Buzz had a run around the classroom and the children were in hysterics! Hopefully it will generate some interest. And the children absolutely loved their stickers. =^.^=

REUNITED =^.^=Charley (real name Sooty) was dumped at a vets4pets recently. We had his abscess treated and had him neutered. Wonderfully his owners recognised him on our website and after a whole year if being missing he is home.
