The Purrfect family portrait! These two little kittens are up for adoption. Fatty, the adult cat, has fostered many kittens for ARO and always does a magnificent job! He is definitely not up for adoption and is a much-loved family pet. Mango, is the Ginger male kitten, is the runt of litter, a little on the small side but he is growing fast. He is VERY affectionate and loves company. Maya, is the tortoise shell female kitten. She is feisty with the heart of the lion, loves being in charge but she also loves company. They are both about 10 weeks old, well socialised and enjoy the company of people, dogs, other cats and as well as children. If you can offer either of them a good home, please contact Tamsyn on 0824117922 or
