Chin­chilla do­nated to char­ity shop

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

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.

If you would like to give a home to Miki or Robin and Scar­lett or Gavin then please call us on (020) 8966 9688 or email us at: info@ rsp­camid­dle­sex.org.uk.
