Betty Boop’s blues

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

Harefield Gazette - - ANIMAL NEWS -

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 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!
