Hello! Two months ago, I rescued an 8-week old kitten in front of our house. She was very afraid and hungry. After a few weeks of socializing, she became a sweet playful kitten. I already had her checked by the vet—dewormed and vaccinated. I play with her everyday. But I noticed she gets sad. I’ve read about Single Kitten Syndrome. After a few weeks of research and careful thought, I decided to adopt another kitten rescued by a cat foster near my area. The two kittens became best of friends and they often play and groom each other. My mother is allergic to cats and didn’t want them inside our house. So I placed them in a separate room about 60 square meters. It is a huge room with 7 windows. I installed cat shelves and window sills. I bought a cat tree and scratching posts. I bought cat beds and pet fountain for them. I bought lots of toys like tunnels, empty boxes, catnip stuffed animals, cat turntable, etc. I feed them three times a day and spend an hour for each visit to play with them and pet them. We also visit our backyard once each day so they can run and chase butterflies or bees. I think they are having fun! But then, I keep on thinking if having them in one room is not good for them. It is certainly not ideal, but it is better than living on the streets with no food and medical support. But I often feel guilty that they are not free to roam around with our household. Do you think it would be best for me to post them for adoption? This will definitely break my heart, but I just want what is best for them. I love them so much.
