Hello Lolly – It’s so nice to have you back where you be­long

Harefield Gazette - - ANIMAL NEWS -

WE all know that we should do our bit to sup­port our wildlife and one of the eas­i­est and best things to do is keep a lit­tle patch of your gar­den over­grown and nat­u­ral.

The but­ter­flies, bugs and small an­i­mals love it but there comes a point when it needs tidy­ing up and out comes the strim­mer!

If you put on some sen­si­ble footwear, a pair of gloves and some safety glasses you will be fine and the job will be done in no time.

Un­less, of course, you come across four tiny kittens curled up in the long grass as one lo­cal gar­dener did.

Sadly, one of the kittens had been caught with the strim­mer which re­sulted in many lac­er­a­tions across her body, ears and legs but worse still, frac­tured toes on her front paw.

As mum was nowhere to be seen the gar­dener con­tacted the RSPCA and the in­spec­tor brought the kittens to us.

The in­jured kit­ten (known as Solero) was treated by the vet and has been very brave, tak­ing her medicine quite hap­pily and is heal­ing well.

Hap­pily, af­ter 3 days apart mum – Lolly – was found and has been re­united with Solero and the three other kittens – Mag­num, Calippo and Cor­netto – which means that she can feed them her­self and first time surrogate mums Jackie, Pete, Holly, Lau­ren and Ni­cole can have a well-earned rest – a huge thank you to them for step­ping in to help.

Each year we have to raise more and more money to care for our an­i­mals.

This year we will spend £214,000 on di­rect care on top of which, we need to fund salaries and other costs, such as ve­hi­cles too.

If you are able to make a do­na­tion to­wards car­ing for Lolly and her beau­ti­ful fam­ily we would love to hear from you. You can con­tact us on the num­ber below or you can drop a do­na­tion in to one of our shops.

If you think you could of­fer a for­ever home to any of the cats and kittens we cur­rently have in our care then please call us on (020) 8966 9688 or email us at: info@rsp­camid­dle­sex.org.uk.

And fi­nally... we still need loads of soft toy an­i­mals for our fundrais­ing events so when you have a few min­utes peace now the kids are back at school why not sort out their cup­boards and help us care for our an­i­mals?

Just drop them in to one of our shops http://www.rspca-mid­dle­sex. org.uk/how-to-find-us/
