Chinchilla donated to charity shop
ONE of the more unusual arrivals at the RSPCA Middlesex North West Branch in recent months has been a young male chinchilla.
Miki was “donated” to one of our charity shops. Yes, and we thought we had seen it all before.
As far as we are aware he has never had a companion, so now that he has been castrated we are hoping to find him a friend to share his days with.
Miki has clearly been used to lots of regular handling and it shows as he is a cheeky, friendly little fellow. He is looking for a home where he will be given the opportunity to come out of his cage in a room for exercise daily.
Chinchillas are most active from dusk till dawn so if you are out at work all day long he will be just be getting active when you get home, ready for lots of fun and frolics.
Animal Welfare Office Tracy Deamer said: “We will not home him as a single chinchilla but are looking for a home for him with a companion as chinchillas are social animals.”
As usual with summer we have recently seen a surge in the number of kittens coming into our care.
Just over the last eight weeks we have taken in 49 kittens and now have 50 in our care looking for new homes.
Robin and Scarlett are two black fluffy kittens hoping to find a new forever home as a pair.
They are brother and sister who came to us after being rescued from a back garden where a small colony of cats had set up home, with an old Wendy house for shelter.
They are the most adorable, mischievous little kittens, super friendly and full of fun. They would make the best family pets. They will be fine living with other cats and they will need a garden to explore once they are old enough.
Gavin was left in a box and dumped on the street in Watford only to be found by someone passing by. Animal Welfare administrator Cheryl O’Keeffe said: “Gavin was very hungry but otherwise unharmed. He is very small for his age but has a big personality and a big appetite and now is growing fast.” He is playful and bouncy, everything a kitten should be.
We are now looking for a family for his forever home.
