You can call me Al
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
