Honey’s a sweet homeless tabby
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.
GOOD CONDITION: Honey
