Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

IN the last six weeks a stag­ger­ing 94 kit­tens and cats have been res­cued by the RSPCA Mid­dle­sex North West Branch. We have been able to find new homes for life for 59 cats and kit­tens dur­ing this pe­riod but we still have over 115 in our care, and with more com­ing in ev­ery day we are fast run­ning out of space to house them all.

Some cats are still re­cov­er­ing at the vets af­ter suf­fer­ing painful ne­glect and abuse but most are ready to move to a per­ma­nent new home.

Many of th­ese cats and kit­tens have come to us as strays, how­ever many have just been dumped like lit­tle Trol­ley and Bas­ket.

Th­ese two five-week-old kit­tens were found in a card­board box in a lo­cal ASDA carpark and are lucky to be alive be­cause a passerby thought to look in the box and found them very cold and hun­gry hav­ing been taken from their mum so young.

They are now mak­ing good progress in our care and will be ready to go to a new home in a few weeks.

With the mid-term break com­ing up and be­ing at home with the chil­dren, please think about adopt­ing a cat or kit­ten now. With ev­ery­one at home to­gether, your new pet would have the chance to set­tle in and get to know their new fam­ily.

Al came into our care af­ter be­ing found wan­der­ing the streets with a great big wound on his head.

For­tu­nately it was only a burst ab­scess, yes very un­sightly but eas­ily re­cov­ered from. As you can see in his photo he still has a small scab on his head but he is fit and ready to find a new for­ever home.

Al is a lovely older gen­tle­man, he just loves peo­ple com­ing to see him, and he re­ally hates it if you don’t stop and at least say hi!

He is a chatty fel­low who will quickly let you know when he wants some­thing, like at­ten­tion or an­other Dreamie!

Penny is a friendly cat who would be suit­able for fam­ily. About one year old Penny has been with us since Septem­ber 23. She had five kit­tens who are now all ready to go off to new homes as well.

Re­ported to us as a preg­nant stray by a res­i­dent in Ruis­lip liv­ing in flats she dis­ap­peared within days and gave us the run around and was then re­ported soon af­ter by a lo­cal school as a mum with kit­tens.

We man­aged to col­lect three kit­tens, but mum and two kit­tens had evaded us again head­ing back to the flats where she was fi­nally col­lected along with her kit­tens!

If you would like to adopt Al or Penny or any of the other cats and kit­tens ready for a new home, please call us on 020 8966 9688 or email info@rsp­camid­dle­sex.org.uk
