Cattery full to bursting
WE’RE having kittens here at the RSPCA Hillingdon, Slough, Windsor, Kingston and District Branch – literally.
Kitten season continues and our cattery is full to bursting with homeless cats and kittens who have come into our care. Most had been abandoned and would not have survived if they had not been brought to us by one of our inspectors or by members of the public.
Our staff and volunteers are working all hours to care for them. Now the challenge is to find permanent homes for them.
Could you offer a loving home for one or more of these innocent animals, or for one of our adult cats?
Visit www. rspcahillingdonclinic.org. uk/animal_adoption.htm to see just a selection of the animals looking for homes, and to download an adoption application form.
If you know someone who is considering getting a pet, please steer them in our direction – it is so rewarding to offer a home to a rescue pet and to know you are offering that animal a secure and happy future.
With cats coming out of our ears we are desperately in need of donations of cat and kitten food as well as old blankets and bedding, and toys specially designed for cats (the kind available at pet shops).
These can all be dropped off at our RSPCA Clinic in Hillingdon and will be very gratefully received.
Talking of the clinic – did you know that we offer low cost neutering, microchipping, vaccinations and advice to all pet owners?
Call 01895 231 435 now to find out more and book an appointment for your pet, and make sure you are part of the solution.
There is a 20 per cent discount for OAPs – please spread the word.
Could you ‘do the do’ for Betty Boop?
Lovely Betty has been with us for a while now. She was rescued by one of our inspectors from a brutal home where she was repeatedly beaten up by her male owner, leaving her with absolutely horrific injuries. After a great deal of veterinary care and gentle nursing by the RSPCA team, three-yearold Betty is now recovered, although she will always have a bit of a ‘funny walk’ due to her past injuries, and may be susceptible to arthritis in later life.
Betty is a beautiful tabby looking for a calm, loving home with a sympathetic owner, who she can learn to trust.
She is still wary of men so an understanding female owner would be best.
She would be happy as a house cat, or in a quiet country spot, with lots of lap time, stroking and affection, and we think she would prefer it if there weren’t any other cats in the household.
It sounds like a tall order, but we’re sure Betty’s perfect new owner is out there somewhere. Could you be the one? Do you know anyone who fits the bill? ‘Oooh Betty’ – we do hope you find your forever home soon!
Bobby came to us as her owners were moving and sadly could not take her with them.
Bobby is a sweet young rabbit now in search of a home that really will be forever. All rabbits require a spacious hutch and a generous sized run with plenty of room to play, stretch and exercise as well as a healthy and nutritious diet to help them thrive.
Not forgetting, of course, the all-important love and attention of their human family. If you are interested in adopting Bobby, or any of the other lovely rabbits currently in our care, please do contact us.
We have an Amazon Wish List for anyone wishing to send items from outside the local area.
