In August 2012 my neighbour’s half feral cat Stripes gave birth to 5 kittens. We named them Tysk, Micheal Junior, Finny, Curious Omo and Seran. Seran died in the first couple of weeks but the other four survived. Curious Omo was the runt and I had to hand rear her for much of the time. By four weeks old they were all testing out their climbing skills and showing signs of their hunting instincts. By eight weeks Finny and Omo moved into my place and the other two were also re-homed.
