Honey’s a sweet home­less tabby

Harefield Gazette - - ANIMAL NEWS -

AS a long haired, spotty, Glam Rock lov­ing teenager grow­ing up in the 1970s I was re­quired to hate Bobby Golds­boro! In my school, Slade ruled and Sum­mer the First Time was far too cheesy to be cool.

Worse was the fact that Ra­dio One still played Honey from 1968, a real tear­jerker and no self-re­spect­ing teen was go­ing to be seen with a tear in his eye (it still gets me to this day). So let me in­tro­duce you to Honey. Honey is a beau­ti­ful, seven-year old fe­male do­mes­tic short­haired tabby. She was signed over to us when her el­derly owner was taken into care. Sadly, Honey suf­fers with heart dis­ease and hy­per­thy­roid and both con­di­tions re­quire long-term med­i­ca­tion. At present she is in very good con­di­tion and her ill­nesses are be­ing well man­aged – she takes her tablets in her food so is easy to med­i­cate.

Honey needs a home with ac­cess to a gar­den and no other cats or dogs. Due to her ex­ist­ing med­i­cal con­di­tions, Honey needs a per­ma­nent fos­ter fam­ily which means that we will meet the cost of med­i­ca­tion/ treat­ment of her ex­ist­ing con­di­tion and her new fam­ily will cover all other bills such as food and treat­ment of other ill­ness and in­juries as and when they oc­cur.

If you want a cat that will love you and the at­ten­tion you can give her, Honey is the girl for you. No tears here, this Honey will only bring you joy. (In case you were won­der­ing, Bobby Golds­boro still tours as well as paint­ing and writ­ing books.)

Our cat­tery is full to burst­ing point, so please con­sider adopt­ing a cat.

When mak­ing your choice of pet you need to be pre­pared to look af­ter it through­out its life.

If you get a kit­ten this could be 20 years or more and with a rab­bit it may be six years or more. You also need to be ready for the un­ex­pected – what will you do if your pet is poorly for ex­am­ple.

Mod­ern vet­eri­nary care means that it is pos­si­ble to treat se­ri­ous in­juries and ill­nesses suc­cess­fully, but such treat­ment can be com­plex and ex­pen­sive. In­sur­ing your pet will help with un­ex­pected bills.

If you have con­sid­ered these is­sues and would like to give one or more of the many an­i­mals in our care a home please have a look at our web­site or Face­book pages for more in­for­ma­tion.

You can see more pic­tures and videos of the cats and kittens in our care on our Face­book page https:// www.face­book.com/RSPCAMNW.

If you think you could of­fer a for­ever home to Honey, a rab­bit or any of the other small an­i­mals and cats we cur­rently have look­ing for a home for life, then please call us on 020 8966 9688 or email us at info@ rsp­camid­dle­sex.org.uk.

Don’t for­get, we still need loads of soft toy an­i­mals for our fundrais­ing events so while the kids are on school hol­i­days why not get them to sort out their cup­boards and help an an­i­mal like Honey? Just drop them in to one of our shops.
