Here is one to start things off:

Whisper the KittenWe adopted Whisper from Farplace Animal Rescue two years ago. He was a tiny scrap of a kitten who was born feral, living in a barn and was taken into rescue at only 3 weeks of age when his mother was shot.

She managed to find her way back to the barn where the owners of the smallholding found her body and, realising she had milk, set about finding her kittens.

Whisper has grown into a very affectionate, fun loving cat, but is wary of strangers.

Here is a video of him discovering our Christmas Tree on his first Christmas.
