When Will I Be Loved

Our Pet of the Week this week is actually two little pets. These two kittens are 9 weeks old and were found dumped in a building site. They are now at Vetmed Randwick awaiting their new owners. The gorgeous black & white boy is very playful and his white & tabby brother is quite vocal. If you would like to play with or chat to these two kitties, please contact Vetmed.
