Here’s a never-before-published photo from almost six years ago. It’s Calina with the three A Litter kittens at four days old on 9 May 2012.
The kittens were named Ariana, Alexander and Alfredo (Alfie).
Calina was a great mum and had six litters (one in Toronto and five in Auckland) before retiring in 2015. She now lives with a family in the Wairarapa, but her daughter Hoku remains with us.
