Over the years The Craft-E-Kittens have seen a miriad of illnesses, ailments and unique characteristics from the beautiful souls we have had the absolute honour of adding to our family over an astounding Sixteen (16) years of the cause in action.
It all began back in 2004 with the adoption of Sox (then "Socks") and Tigger - a bonded pair of brothers* who found themselves needing a new family when their own could no longer keep them due to downsizing and restrictions on pets. Having also two other furbabies who were medically unwell - they made a tough decision to relinquish these two beauties in an attempt to appease the new landlords and keep the two "more needy" cats with them.
Little did we know that some short time after the adoption we would realise that not only did both of our new "average outgoing outdoor wanderers" have longterm health issues themselves, but that they were actually a brother / sister pairing. Tigger turned out to be a girl :-) which would explain why she had an "air" about her when referred to as a boy. We added the hyphenated name "-lou" as she seemed to respond sing-songily to "Tiggy-lou" etc rather than simply "Tigger?!"
