Don’t be a part of the kit­ten cri­sis

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

THE kit­ten cri­sis is upon us again as num­bers rise at this time of year. Please don’t be part of the prob­lem get your cats neutered con­tact us if you need help or ad­vise on neu­ter­ing.

Our branch cur­rently has 10 nurs­ing mums with kit­tens look­ing for re­spon­si­ble for­ever homes. As usual, we are also deal­ing with stray and aban­doned lit­ters as well as kit­tens born to cats whose own­ers couldn’t be both­ered to neuter them, but ex­pect res­cues to take in the un­wanted off­spring and foot the bill for food, care and re­hom­ing.

They all de­serve a fu­ture to look for­ward to if you can of­fer a lov­ing for­ever home to one of our kit­tens please con­tact us with so many hun­gry mouths to feed do­na­tions of kit­ten food and bed­ding is a god­send to us if you can help how­ever small it can make such a big dif­fer­ence.

The lovely Mia is a year-old fe­male white tabby cat. She is beau­ti­ful and ex­tremely friendly but hasn’t had the best of luck in life.

She ar­rived with only three legs and a bad skin con­di­tion, which is now un­der con­trol but will need a bit of spe­cial on­go­ing care, which we will sup­port via our clinic.

Mia is very affectionate and loves a cud­dle, so will make the per­fect lap cat per­haps for an older per­son, or a fam­ily with teenagers.

Due to her dis­abil­ity, she will need to be a house cat or only have ac­cess to a se­cure gar­den.

We are look­ing for a lov­ing home with­out other cats, lo­cated within our branch area. Mia would be de­lighted to live with some­one who shares her love of clas­si­cal mu­sic.

If you can help Mia turn her luck around, please get in touch.

Peggy is a seven-mon­thold fe­male English Bull Ter­rier.

Not sur­pris­ingly given her breed and age, she is a very lively and ex­citable young lady, but sadly her ex­u­ber­ance proved too much for her pre­vi­ous owner to cope with.

Peggy loves her toys, play­time and get­ting lots of cud­dles. She does how­ever have a bit of a stub­born streak and def­i­nitely needs some­one pre­pared to com­mit to her train­ing and over­due so­cial­i­sa­tion.

Ideally, Peggy is look­ing for an ac­tive cat-free home, with a large gar­den and fam­ily ei­ther ex­pe­ri­enced with the breed or who have done their re­search. She would prob­a­bly be ok with another dog who was pa­tient enough to tol­er­ate her puppy capers.

We would love to see our lit­tle princess set­tled in to a lov­ing for­ever home asap. Could she be the new fam­ily mem­ber you’ve been look­ing for?

If you think you can of­fer one of our an­i­mals a lov­ing home then please ring RSPCA Hilling­don Branch on 01895 833417 or visit our web­site www. rspc­ahilling­don­ uk to down­load an ap­pli­ca­tion form.
