Betty Boop’s blues
Can you give an animal a loving home and a new start in life?
DO you own a vehicle that you are planning to sell or get rid of ? Then please think about donating it to us through ‘Give A Car’, who will collect the vehicle from your home for free, and donate money to us for each vehicle they collect.
The amount varies according to the vehicle’s age and condition, but all amounts would go towards our animal welfare work, and the sums raised can be significant.
To arrange the donation of a car, visit www.giveacar.co.uk or call 020 7736 4242, quoting RSPCA Hillingdon, Slough, Windsor, Kingston and District Branch as your chosen charity.
After a slow start this year, we fear the kitten bubble is about to burst.
We are receiving large number of distress calls about stray cats given birth in sheds, outhouses etc, and several SOS’s from owners whose cats have had problems giving birth and who have no funding for veterinary help. A caesarean can easily use up £1k.
Please do not allow your cat to add to this heart breaking problem by not being neutered.
Remember an unneutered tom cat can father up to 100 kittens a year, and is at serious health risk from feline aids. If finance is a problem many charity funds are available to help or please call The Hillingdon RSPCA Clinic 01895 231435 for help and advice.
It is most important that new born litters and their mother are socialised and we are always looking for experienced foster homes who could help with this. Please apply for a volunteer pack which gives information and an application form for completion.
We are currently seeking homes for two separate indoor cats, both needing plenty of human company.
Dash and Ginger Dash and Ginger have not had the best start in life. When they arrived with us, this gorgeous pair were very shy and scared but have grown in confidence and are becoming more sociable every day. They do rely on each other for company and support so must find a home together, without children, other cats or dogs.
Dash and Ginger are very affectionate and purr lots once you get to know them, especially when having a scratch on the chin. This pair do need a home with someone who is willing to put in the time to bring out the great and loving characters we know they are.
Can you offer Dash and Ginger the happy ending they both deserve.
Betty Boop Betty Boop is a beautiful girl with stunning emerald green eyes. She has been through a rough time for such a young cat coming to us barely able to walk due to a pelvic injury.
After many weeks of pain relief, cage re rest and lots of TLC, she is doing r really well though she will always have a slightly unusual walkin walking gait and may be prone to arthriti arthritis in later life. She will need to be an indoor cat in a relatively quiet house without other cats, dogs or young children.
Betty Boop is a very affectionate cat, who absolutely loves fuss and attention. She so deserves a special new start in life - can you help?
Thank you for your support – we can’t do it without you!
