Sweet Wil­liam likes a brush be­fore brekkie

Can you give an an­i­mal a lov­ing home and a new start in life?

Harefield Gazette - - ANIMAL NEWS -

AS a lo­cal branch of the RSPCA we sup­port the work of na­tional RSPCA In­spec­tors who are work­ing in our branch area by tak­ing in, free of charge, mis­treated, aban­doned or stray an­i­mals. This some­times will also in­clude pets whose own­ers have passed away, as is the case for Wil­liam, who is fea­tured here.

Wil­liam is a very friendly old boy with a re­gal bear­ing who would make some­one a great com­pan­ion.

He is very chatty (you will strug­gle to get a word in!) and loves com­pany but is used to be­ing in­de­pen­dent so it would not be a prob­lem if you go out to work dur­ing the day.

Wil­liam will need ac­cess to a gar­den so he can pot­ter about in the nice weather and bask in the warm sun­shine.

Wil­liam in­sists on start­ing the day with a good brush (af­ter break­fast of course) to make him feel good and look his best. He is in pretty good shape for his 15 years and has no med­i­cal is­sues at present.

Wil­liam would how­ever, need to be the only pet of the house­hold as he does not get on well with other cats or dogs.

Be­cause of Wil­liam’s ad­vanced years we are look­ing for a per­ma­nent foster home for him rather than for him to be adopted.

This means that our Branch would con­tinue to take care of all of his med­i­cal needs and will ar­range to board him if nec­es­sary, when you go on your hol­i­days for ex­am­ple.

This means that Wil­liam need not be a fi­nan­cial bur­den to you. As a per­ma­nent fos­terer we would ex­pect Wil­liam to be treated as your own loved pet.

If you think you could of­fer a long-term foster home to Wil­liam or a for­ever home to any of the other cats, kittens, rab­bits, guinea pigs or other small an­i­mals we cur­rently have in our care then please call us on (020) 8966 9688 or email us at: info@ rsp­camid­dle­sex.org.uk.

If you would like to make a do­na­tion to sup­port our work this can also be done by vis­it­ing our web­site. In ad­di­tion to the work we carry out pro­vid­ing a refuge for pets in need while we find a new home we also pro­vide sub­sidised vet­eri­nary treat­ment for an­i­mals which are sick or in­jured that be­long to lo­cal peo­ple on low in­comes. We do this through a voucher scheme which helps those on means tested ben­e­fits by giv­ing them fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance to ob­tain care for com­pan­ion an­i­mals.
