The Scottish SPCA’s Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre is seeking a special home for two kittens who have been hand-reared from birth.

Scotland’s animal welfare charity rescued the new-born brother and sister when they were abandoned on a doorstep along with their mum.

Unfortunately, their mother rejected them so animal care assistant Josh Wilson has been hand-rearing the tiny pair.

Josh has named the siblings King and Queen and although he has grown very attached to them over the past six weeks he knows that the time has come for them to find a family of their own.

Josh said, “Obviously when you are hand-rearing animals and caring for them round the clock you develop a really close bond and I must admit I have a big soft spot for these little guys.

“However, I can’t keep every pet I look after so I know that we now have to find them a loving family of their own and I’m keen to make sure that they get the best possible home, basically one that’s fit for a king and queen.

“We’re looking to rehome them as a pair as they are really good wee pals who do everything together and we’re looking for a family who have the time, resources and commitment to give them all the love, care and attention they deserve.”

Anyone who can offer King and Queen a permanent and loving home is being urged to contact the Scottish SPCA’s Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre on 03000 999 999.
