Cop­ing on the front­line with lit­ter af­ter lit­ter

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

FOR those of us cop­ing in the front line, the cat and kit­ten cri­sis is still in full flow. We have kit­tens born here in the cat­tery now ris­ing four months and have only known life in a cat­tery.

Tiny faces re­ly­ing solely on this lo­cal self-fund­ing RSPCA branch. Our fa­vorite adopters are those folk not fussy about colour or mark­ings, just want­ing to save a lit­tle life and give a de­serv­ing fe­line a for­ever home. If you own an un­ster­ilised d cat and fi­nance is a prob­lem, please ask for help and don’t add to this heart­break­ing epi­demic.

How do we find all this kit­ten / cat food and lit­ter, vet­eri­nary fees, staff and over­heads? Pre­dom­i­nately with profit for our char­ity shops and the gen­er­ous sup­port of the he peo­ple of Hilling­don, for which we thank you.

Our three Hilling­don char­ity shop leases rely solely on public sup­port for do­na­tions and vol­un­teers who can com­mit to a reg­u­lar slot. We are very grate­ful for do­na­tions of saleable goods, but please do not leave them out­side our shops.

Tech­ni­cally fly tip­ping, they are ran­sacked and spread ev­ery­where, any­thing of value is stolen.

From Septem­ber 1, our al­lowance for tip­ping rub­bish has been dra­mat­i­cally cut, and we will have to re­luc­tantly turn away goods we can­not sell. Un­sold boot fair items are sel­dom sal­able, but we will not be able to meet dis­posal costs un­less we re­duce the quan­tity.

Four-year-old Mia came to us due to her pre­vi­ous owner’s health prob­lems she has been with us for al­most six months an and is long­ing for a home t to call her own. As you can see she is a very pretty girl, and a f uwas fun and play­ful cat who can be very affectionate when it suits her.

Mia would love a h home with a nice ga gar­den where she cou could chill out, but wou would be best suited to a hom home with­out other cats or young chil­dren. Could you of­fer M Mia a spe­cial place in your heart and home?

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. rspc­ahilling­don­clinic.org.uk to down­load an ap­pli­ca­tion form and view some of the an­i­mals that are look­ing for for­ever homes.
