Why Sun­flower is a golden girl

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

Harefield Gazette - - ANIMAL NEWS -

THEY say ‘Cast not a clout till May is out”’– so we are about to burst back on to the sum­mer events scene with our ever pop­u­lar soft toy tombola!

We’ll be at events across the branch re­gion all sum­mer so please come and find us and say hello. Just look for the blue gazebo with our logo on the top. Be­cause we of­fer a prize ev­ery time on our tombola, we are still look­ing for loads more soft toys to use as prizes (an­i­mals only though – Buzz Lightyear, Queen Elsa and Olaf won’t make the grade this time) and with the bank hol­i­day week­end on the hori­zon it’s a great time to make some room in the house. Just drop them in to any of our shops.

The money we raise at the sum­mer events helps to care for an­i­mals like Sun­flower and Candy­corn.

Sun­flower was re­ported to our branch af­ter she gave birth to four kit­tens in a flower pot! Un­able to trace an owner, Sun­flower and her kit­tens came into our care. Now that her kit­tens no longer need to be with her, she is ready for her for­ever home.

Sun­flower is a sweet cat who would ben­e­fit from a quiet home, she is wary of strangers but learns to trust once she gets to know you. Sun­flower wouldn’t mind shar­ing you with an ex­ist­ing cat. She does need a gar­den and would suit a cou­ple or a sin­gle owner.

Candy­corn is a lovely, friendly cat who en­joys adult com­pany. She’s beau­ti­ful and she knows it!

She is af­fec­tion­ate and play­ful and can get up to mis­chief at times! She is look­ing for a cou­ple or fam­ily (and gets on with older teenagers too) to em­brace home life again. Be­ing some­thing of a princess she needs to be the only cat and, of course, re­quires a gar­den.

Own­ing and car­ing for a cat is great fun and very re­ward­ing, but it is also a big re­spon­si­bil­ity and a long-term com­mit­ment in terms of care and fi­nances. If you own a cat you are re­quired by law to care for it prop­erly. Cats have an av­er­age life span of 16 years and be­yond and should be part of the fam­ily; you should be com­mit­ted to in­volv­ing them in all life change that can oc­cur in this time such as moving home, hav­ing a fam­ily and changes in per­sonal cir­cum­stance.

We carry out a home-visit prior to adop­tion and we’ll also call or visit af­ter­wards to make sure you and your new pet are ad­just­ing well to your new life to­gether.

If you think you could of­fer a for­ever home to Sun­flower or Candy­corn or 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. You can visit our web­site if you would like to view the pets we cur­rently have look­ing for a home at; www.rspca-mid­dle­sex.org.uk where you will also find de­tails of our shops with lo­ca­tions and open­ing times.
