Give a happy new year to Hog­manay

Harefield Gazette - - ANIMAL NEWS -

IALWAYS think that this is an awk­ward time of year. Christ­mas seems like a life­time ago but you can never be sure if you should still be wish­ing peo­ple a happy new year when you meet them. As they say, it’s a first world prob­lems.

Many peo­ple like to make, and quickly break, New Year res­o­lu­tions, of­ten plan­ning to take on and change the world.

Oth­ers are al­ready break­ing prom­ises –“but mummy, I prom­ise if I have a puppy or a kit­ten I will look af­ter it and take it for walks” – or find­ing that the ex­pense of Christ­mas is a real bur­den and an ex­tra mouth to feed and un­ex­pected vets bills are too much to cope with.

Our An­i­mal Wel­fare Of­fi­cers (AWOs) are al­ready pick­ing up the pieces and are busy deal­ing with an­i­mals which have been heart­lessly aban­doned.

Meet Hog­manay. She was found be­hind some bins and taken in to our care on New Year’s Eve.

She is a sweet lit­tle thing and needs a warm and lov­ing home to get 2017 off to a great start. She has been to the vets to be spayed so she is hav­ing a bit of a rest at the mo­ment but will be ready to leave us very soon.

All of the cats in our care have been neutered and vac­ci­nated, so all you will need to pro­vide is food, toys, some­where to sleep and lots of love and cud­dles

Re­mem­ber that a pet is a long-term com­mit­ment and you should think long and hard be­fore mak­ing any de­ci­sions.

If you think you could of­fer a for­ever home to Hog­manay or any of the small an­i­mals, cats and rab­bits 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.

To view some of the many pets we have look­ing for new homes you can visit our web­site at www.rspca-mid­dle­sex.org.uk where you will also find more in­for­ma­tion about the work we do at RSPCA Mid­dle­sex North West Branch.

Here’s look­ing for­ward to a fan­tas­tic 2017 and, if I haven’t said it be­fore, happy new year from ev­ery­one here at RSPCA Mid­dle­sex North West branch.
