frail and nervous, or have medical conditions that need constant

never get homed. All of them need caring for and feeding for the
rest of their lives.

One of our long term sponsor cats
Richie is NOW a friendly chap he loves to chat to you and loves
company something he has lacked in his past; he came into our
care after being a stray in the same road for 9+ years this is
what the locals had told us. Upset that no one had ever tried to
help him until we got the call. He was in extremely poor
condition. He was un-neutered, under nourished; full of wounds,
hardly any fur and his teeth were rotten. He had been scavenging
for food and trying to survive. Capturing him was hard but
finally managed this after several attempts with the cat trap.
He does only have 2 teeth now after his vet treatment. After
having lots of TLC he now is more trusting with humans and you
wouldn’t believe he was the same cat that came into our care
three years ago. He still has that temperamental attitude but
this is where he has been abused and neglected in the past by
humans. We have tried to give him a normal home life but
unfortunately he is quite a bully with other cats and a tinkler
indoors marking his territory. So the only option for this boy
is to live outside where he has his own cattery pen with warm
luxury housing and his belly filled twice a day, he is left to
roam in the gardens outside free for several hours a day until
the resident cats are let out. This is the best we can give him
but a massive life change for this dear boy. He loves to be
fussed by his foster carer, and so excited to see her he chirps
away whilst giving her kisses and cuddles, he loves playing with
his catnip toys he is not a fussy eater and eats till his
heart’s content. We have got so attached to this boy and so
proud of how he has come on. He has become part of our furry
family. Richie is fit and healthy and on no medication. We hope
that he can spend his last few years of his life a happy old man
and so glad he was not left to fend for himself any longer.
a very nervous kitten, we desperately tried to home him. With
not much response it was decided as he had settled so well with
the other resident cats he would remain in the foster house
rather than upsetting him moving him on to a new home and new
people. Even now after 6 years indoors he will hide when people
knock the door or come to visit. And as for the window cleaner
and the dustman you would think they were aliens!!. Sometimes
Sherbet’s little head will appear from behind the sofa. And he
certainly never ventures out when the wind blows or it rains
hard so he lives an indoor life most of the time through his own
choice. He adores the laps and cuddles of his foster mum he
feels safe. And has grown into the most gorgeous looking
Joey & Billy
two are little mischievous teenagers,
at first with strangers, but soon following on with lots of
affection once they get to know you. They have been overlooked
every time in favour of the more colourful kittens we have had
in our foster care. They are truly adorable little boys. They
are micro-chipped, vaccinated and neutered. They have been in
our foster care for a long time and until we can find someone to
take them on, they will be sponsor cats to help with the cost of
their food, litter and veterinary costs.
This little female appeared one day on a farm. She was very thin
and hungry, no more than a young kitten herself, so nervous no
one could get near her. The owner of the farm started to feed
her and as time went on she gradually put on weight, when much
to the surprise of one of the staff on the farm noticed her with
tiny kittens just opening their eyes huddled under a tarpaulin.
That’s when the farmer called us to say he was desperate to
catch them before they become feral. We then worked with the
farmer to help trap mum. They survived all the snow and cold
weather. On Christmas Eve the telephone rang, bingo! All went to
plan getting mum and kittens were trapped and they were
re-united together. Safe and warm in one of our cattery houses
with plenty of food.
As we caught them on Christmas Eve we decided to call mum Holly.
She is all black and was no more than 10 months old herself. The
kittens were two females, who we named Twinkle and Belle who we
homed together. But as Holly was a feral cat and had settled so
well in our foster care and attached herself and adored all the
other cats we decided she would remain in our care in a nice
warm cosy home as a permanent sponsor cat.
Tabitha & Truffles
& Truffles first came to our attention when they were advertised
for sale on a notice board in one of the supermarkets. We
thought it was odd because they also wanted a grey/white female
kitten, & Tabitha & Truffles were adult cats. Anyhow we gave
them a call and went along to see the cats. What a filthy hovel
we found them in. It was mid winter, freezing cold, no comforts
for the many cats, stinking of unneutered toms, obviously not
lived in, plus a dog in a cage under the stairs. The woman was
making money out of the uncared for animals.
Both cats were unneutered although she insisted they were! And
they were petrified, probably because they had never been
socialised. How could we leave them there? We handed over the
required amount of money and walked away with the two cats.
Needless to say she was reported to the RSPCA.
Violet & Fi Fi
originally came from a pet shop only a few weeks old huddled in
the corner in a very small dirty cage surrounded by noisy birds.
A family felt sorry for them and bought them but did not realise
how timid and petrified they were.
Violet was untouchable, they
both hid under the bed growling, spitting and hissing terrified
of the owners children. It then dawned on the family that was
why the pet shop owner used a large leather garden glove to pick
them up and put them in a cat carrier. The owners decided that
they were far from being friendly cats suitable for young
children so they signed them both over to us to rehabilitate and
re-home. After several months and no one wanting to give them a
chance our fosterer decided to bring them in from the cattery. She has spent a lot of time with them with lots of TLC, in return
they have now learnt to trust her.
Now Fifi is a lovely friendly cat, Violet is still nervous but
can be stroked if she stands still long enough. She does
actually sleep on your chest so given more time she to will
become friendly. These sisters deserve a loving home. All they
need is a quiet indoor, adult home, where they can show
themselves as the beautiful cats they really are. They have been
in our foster care for a long time and until we can find someone
to take them on, they will be sponsor cats to help with the cost
of there food, litter and veterinary costs.
was with us for such a long time, even 'though lots of people
were interested in him, the one thing that made everyone
holdback, was the fact Lincoln is a 'Biter'. Many people came to
with the intention of giving him a home, but decided against it,
because of the risk element, maybe not to them but to visitors
or neighbours children etc and with one viewer even going away
with a very sore hand, we decided he was not suitable for
homing. When one of our long term fosterers offered to take him
on indefinitely, we were over the moon. In this home, we knew he
happy and the biting would not worry Sue at all, she was used to
it from other cats she had cared for in the past. He has settled
well and yes, true to form he is carrying on biting, but even
so, he is still a very lovable handsome boy, who really can't
help the way he is.
