Trying to find a new home for two kittens: I am urgently trying to find a nice home for two kittens, born in my backyard. (Competa) They are approximately 9-10 weeks old. They are very adorable, beautiful and healthy. The red one is now used to people and being picked up. He/she is very curious. The black one is a little more timid. This call is really urgent because the mothercat (who still is around) is very protective and does not mix well with the familypets in the house. Contact: Nanon Morsink, info@nanonmorsink.nl
