Update from our Cattery
Friday 29 April
Kitten season is here and our lovely Kim is already helping hand rear 3 kittens which came into us when they were no older than 2 weeks old. We believe the Queen was a feral and was scared away when she was disturbed. They are doing very well but obviously exhausting for the team member who is also having to feed through the night! They also have to be toileted as they are too young to be able to do this themselves.
We also have Gracie who was a stray and she is due to give birth any time now. She will go to a foster home when the kittens are around 2-3 weeks old.
While we all love our little fluffy friends, every year rescue centres across the country are inundated with pregnant cats and unwanted kittens. Many are strays that have possibly wandered looking for a mate and become lost. Unfortunately in these cases unless the cat is micro-chipped it is all but impossible to trace the owner. It is with this mind, we please ask you to consider getting your cat neutered to help us try and cut down the number of cats looking for a home.
In other news...
Widget finally went out to her new home this month. Having been with us since December and having to have lots of veterinary treatment including eye surgery, it was lovely to see her go home.
Harvey came in on the 17th April and went to his new forever home on the 20th. One of our quickest turnarounds!
Sadly, we lost Spats last week. He had a very damaged bladder and although we tried everything we could, it was kinder to let him go. He came in as a stray and was about 10 years old. He was a lovely boy and we were all very sad to say goodbye.
If you are thinking of adopting a cat, please do consider one of our more mature cats. Quite often very loving and just looking for that forever home where they can enjoy their own space.
