The four tiny new arrivals at Cats Protection’s Bridgend Adoption Centre are now one week old and all doing well thanks to the devotion of their mum, Daisy.
Daisy seems to be enjoying motherhood and his been providing her kittens with plenty of attention and ‘cwtches’ (Welsh for ‘cuddles’), as you can see in the photo below.

- Dewi – Welsh for David, as it was St David’s Day
- Emma – as the UK was being battered by Storm Emma
- Eira – Welsh for snow, as the centre was covered in a blanket of snow
- Daffodil – as it was the first day of spring

Alternatively, if you would like to make a one-off contribution to Daisy's care, you can donate via Bridgend Adoption Centre's Just Giving page.
Although the arrival of kittens is exciting, giving birth can be incredibly stressful for a cat and the kittens would need to find new homes, so we recommend getting them neutered from four months old. There are already thousands of cats waiting to find loving homes across the UK, so neutering is the most effective way to reduce the number of unwanted cats coming into our care.
