Ailbhe, from Eight Lives Cat Rescue, Sheffield, homed through Cat ChatAt a young age poor Ailbhe (pictured here with ginger kitten Alix) found herself living in a rather crowded multi cat house with several other unneutered cats. Both she and the other female in the house became pregnant at the same time and gave birth within a few days of each other. They shared the care of the 9 kittens they had between them. As part of a bigger plan to manage the number of cats in the house and ensure all the cats were neutered, 8 Lives took in Ailbhe and 7 of the 9 kittens when they were 5 weeks old so Ailbhe has ended up caring for her own kittens plus several of the other cat's kittens as well. She's done this beautifully and without complaint. She’s now been adopted after being spotted on Cat Chat.
