Akemi & Yuki

Sisters Akemi (tortie) and Yuki (black and white) are approximately seventeen weeks’ old and are looking for their forever home together.

Akemi and Yuki were rescued with Mum, Alba, and brother Kouna (recently adopted), living as strays in a garage. Aged eight weeks’ old when rescued, they were not used to regular human interaction, but our volunteers have worked tirelessly with them and they are looking for an experienced adopter who will continue to work with them to gain their trust.

Akemi is as bright and beautiful as her name suggests. She is the more confident, curious sister, relaxed enough to come and snuggle with you and purr.

We are sure that as her trust grows, Yuki will bring great happiness to her adopter as her name suggests. She is more nervous than Akemi but does settle and accept strokes from you.

Both kittens are cheeky, very playful and love their food. They are wonderful little characters - at this age, kittens have lots and lots of energy and they are naturally curious; learning something new every day.

Our requirements for anyone wishing to adopt kittens from us are as follows:

  • Kittens need to be adopted as a pair, or in some circumstances as a companion to a home that already has a playful young cat or cats. Kittens grow up much happier and healthier with a friend of their own size, and having a sibling to play with means they are a lot less destructive when they have an outlet for their excess energy.

  • All homes adopting kittens need to be able to provide them outdoor access in a safe location once they are old enough and of course neutered. The ideal location is a house that backs onto other gardens, offering a safe network of gardens to explore away from busy roads. If not already in place, a catflap will be required to be fitted at the back of the property within four week’s of adoption.

  • Homes with children are fine as long as the children have some previous experience with cats and treats animals with kindness and respect their boundaries.

The kittens are vaccinated, microchipped and will come with four weeks’ free pet insurance for you to activate at adoption.

Depending on when they get adopted, they will either be already neutered if old/big enough or their adopter will need to sign a contract to get them neutered at the appropriate age.

Akemi and Yuki are at our Rehoming Hub in SE2, Abbey Wood. We adopt kittens throughout London and the surrounding areas.
