An­i­mal Rescue with Mar­ion Gar­nett

Ded­i­cated an­i­mal ex­pert Mar­ion Gar­nett, founder of the Eal­ing An­i­mal Wel­fare Bazaar, con­tin­ues her col­umn

Harefield Gazette - - ANIMAL NEWS -

FOR sev­eral days, one of our cats has been star­ing at a cup­board with that un­nerv­ing con­cen­tra­tion which cat own­ers will recog­nise as mean­ing they have lo­cated a mouse.

Con­vinced that could not be the case, we did not in­ves­ti­gate.

The in­tent star­ing con­tin­ued un­til we could not bear it any longer and had a look. Guess what we found? A wa­ter leak.

Who would have thought your cat could help you lo­cate a drip­ping pipe. If your pet has sur­prised you with what they have helped you do, let me know on mar­ion@gar­nett.on­line.

I am sure the gor­geous kit­tens cur­rently in the care of Houn­slow An­i­mal Wel­fare So­ci­ety (HAWS) all have their own tal­ents and sur­prises. Six lit­tle gems are fea­tured here but HAWS has many more.

Khloe likes to per­form her trade­mark fly­ing leap from the top of her scratch­ing post onto the bed or, prefer­ably, an­other kit­ten.

Bran­don, her brother, loves to play­fight.

Donna likes to climb onto your lap, but as soon as she sees her si­b­lings play­ing can­not wait to get off and join in.

Tabika is ad­ven­tur­ous, loves cud­dles and needs to be homed with one of his si­b­lings.

Al­roy sits next to his foster mum beg­ging for food to be served as soon as pos­si­ble and Tori al­ways looks like her tongue is stick­ing out.

If you can home one or two of these lit­tle dar­lings call 020 8560 5443. For de­tails of the hom­ing process see haws-an­i­

All homes will need a home visit and chil­dren must be at least four years old.

Look out for the HAWS stall at the Kew Hor­ti­cul­tural Show on Satur­day Au­gust 27 on Kew Green. They will be sell­ing baked goods, hand-made soap and good qual­ity bric a brac.

Fi­nally, do not miss your last chance to take part in a Sum­mer Mon­day event be­ing or­gan­ised by Bat­tersea Dogs and Cats Home.

On each Mon­day in Au­gust, there will be a re­hom­ing talk, an in­vi­ta­tion to meet Bat­tersea’s res­i­dents look­ing for homes and an op­por­tu­nity to take part in arts, crafts and a trea­sure hunt with lots of treats. The events take place ev­ery Mon­day through­out Au­gust be­tween 11am and 4pm on all three Bat­tersea sites (Bat­tersea, Old Wind­sor and Brands Hatch). De­tails from bat­
