A caring cat owner from Kawangware, Nairobi asked for our assistance on 22nd March, 2018. Her cat Amani had just given birth to 3 kittens and, due to harsh economic times, she could not afford to feed all 4 of them.
TNR Trust took all 4 cats to one of our Vet Surgeons where the three Kittens were dewormed and vaccinated and Mommy Amani was vaccinated and spayed. Amani meaning Peace is the name of the mother, the three kittens yet to be named.
Amani was taken back to the owner, now recovering after being spayed. The 3 kittens went to a lovely foster home. Cleo and William have been adopted, but Harvey is still looking for a new home. Picture below!!
TNR Trust brought about another win-win situation: the owner, Amani and the Kittens are happy and have a much better future ahead of them!
