What a beauty this young neutered female is. She is 11 months old and was due to go and live in Turkey. All plans were made until her owners found out she was heavily pregnant. The rescue took over the care of this stunning girl until babies were split from her and she could be neutered. Sadly though her owners gave word back once they got settled in Turkey as the Landlord told them they could not have any pets in the accommodation. A shame really as there have been many chances that this beauty could have been reserved. She even comes with a passport….not many cats come through our doors with one of those! Come along and take a peak at her, you won’t be disappointed by any means. Thank you, Faye.
3-year old Larry came in on 3rd May with Lily. They don’t get along and also the grandchildren were allergic to their fur. Both cats are to be home separately to one pet households please. Larry is neutered and vaccinated and shares a keen interest in the food we give him! He’s got youth on his side so should not cause him a problem being homed. If you are looking for ‘just the one’, then he’s your boy. Please call down and see him for yourself! Than you, Faye.
This is 3-year old neutered female Lily. She was brought in with Larry but they do not get on together. Therefore both of them can be homed separately. Lily has odd coloured eyes just to make her even more special! Lily is vaccinated also. Both cats were brought in because the grandchildren were allergic to them. Lily would suit most home settings without other pets preferably. Thank you, Faye.
Nella arrived with us back on 3rd of April. Her owners could no longer afford to keep her and she was nearly put to sleep. We took her in and she has been isolated whilst a test was run on some skin irritation. She’s all set to go now and judging by her size she has already been neutered. She is 2-years old and is known to be great around children. The skin we reckon could have been to a little scrapping or possible flea allergy.
A SERIOUS PLEA FOR CHARLIE.
Please take a moment to read about our 3-year-old Ragdoll Charlie. He has been with us for a considerable number of weeks after his owners said they couldn’t give the time to care for him. He was extremely knotted and volunteers has to shave most of the trunk of his body of its knots. He wasn’t too keen to say the least and we felt we had to do this to give him a chance of showing his true beauty. That’s the easy part to this story. The sad part is that after weeks of medication for loose stools and special diets, Charlie has tested positive for the Coronavirus. This entailed stool samples being analysed via Crown House Vets. The Coronavirus is transmitted through an oral/fecal route and therefore cats that are shedding the virus must be homed to a one cat home. The hygiene of a cats feeding area, bedding and litter tray has to be at an optimum at all times to reduce the risk of the virus re-entering the cat and therefore becoming a vicious circle. A good percentage of cats that are either in a multi cat home or come through a rescue may well ‘carriers’ but not ‘shedding’ the virus at that point and usually it is when the cats demeanour changes and toilet habits that you would normally look for veterinary help. That is sadly where our story took us (although his previous owners had said he just had a sensitive stomach).
We are looking for a home that is peaceful and fairly routine on a daily basis. At present Charlie is in our isolation unit which is not ideal for a carrier of the virus. If Charlie is put into stressful situations there could be a strong chance that the virus mutates to F.I.P. (Feline Infectious Peritonitis). Sadly there is no cure for this disease and it can sometimes be fatal. We hope for Charlie’s sake that he never gets to this stage. I would welcome any enquiries to the chance of homing Charlie and to discuss issues around diet and medication requirements etc. Only enquire if you have NO OTHER PETS. Thank you, Faye
Update 15th April…. Aww poor Gertie is still with us. She’s been the perfect puss, not an ounce of trouble. Surely soon baby girl you will find that special someone.
Sadly Gertie was dumped at our gates on 27th March. A larger cat so pretty much suspect she is already neutered and around 4 years of age. A quiet cat that would suit most home settings. Let’s hope she finds that special someone soon who won’t repeat the actions of her previous ‘owner’. Thank you, Faye.
Poor Billie, she is another stray that arrive with us today. Only around 8 months old, this all black girl was being fed by a lady who also brought Bella (March) last week. Seemingly a lot of stray/abandoned cats are in this area of Blackley. She will be going for neuter on Monday 7th April. The lady who brought her in says she is much more trusting and affectionate than when they first started to gain their trust….enough to the point of bringing her to a rescue with a brighter outlook than living on the streets.
Rosie arrived with us on 30th March with her litter of 8 week olds. Seemingly she didn’t get on with other cats? She has been separated from her litter now and her milk is drying up so that she can be neutered. Vocal at the minute in parts but a dainty dot who loves being fussed over. Call into the rescue to see this 1-year-old for yourself! Thank you, Faye.
Good news for the Grumblweeds!!!
Topsy and Tim now await a forever home…:)
Well, after months of worry, hard labour and love I’m so pleased to share the amazing news that the Grumbleweeds today have had veterinary clearance and are now ready to be rehomed!!! Dora bless has found herself a wonderful home with a very caring family and she will embark on her new lifetime adventure after neutering next week.
Topsy and Tim still await a forever home and they will need to be reho…med together. They’re both incredibly loving and affectionate but are still very shy little furbabies who depend heavily upon one another.
Is there anyone out there who is genuinely interested, or knows someone interested in providing a VERY loving home for these two special 6month old furbabies?
This fostering experience for me has been a long haul in terms of the heartache, cost, care and the commitment me and my family have put into this litter…But I certainly don’t regret the day I took on the Grumbleweeds…and I would do it all over again if asked. This litter certainly wouldn’t have pulled through without being fostered and they wouldn’t be in the amazing state of health they are now…This is what we’re all about. I’ve spent hours daily with them since November and have watched them blossom and flourish, from feral and filthy, into beautiful loving kittens…I’ve laughed, I’ve cried, I’ve had sleepless nights…but just look at what they’ve become, I’m so proud of them.They’ve certainly overcome a journey with their mummy Daisy (Known as Blacky). Daisy is happily now loving her new home.
This is the hard part for me now: letting go but praying Topsy and Tim don’t have to wait too long for that special someone…as they are desperate for a loving home.
I just want to thank you all again for supporting the ‘Grumblweeds’ through and through. They are certainly a litter I will cherish many fond memories of, and I’m sure they’ll be remembered by many of you also.
Please, please if anyone is in interested in adopting Topsy and Tim, feel free to inbox me or contact Faye Kennerley our Manager at the Rescue on 01616536530. I’m really hoping to avoid these little ones the added stress of being confined to a cage at the Rescue after having spent their first few months in a loving home environment with us. They truly are so special!!! :)xxx
UPDATE 15 April.
Blue did temporarily have a home but it was only for a weekend. We were told that the persons other cat didn’t like him….God knows why because he’s got us all smitten. He chats to us so much it’s becoming an upset when we have to leave….he’s such a great boy. If you know of someone who could give Blue a quality lifestyle, please do get in touch with the rescue.
Please welcome our 7-year-old lad Blue. he arrived a few weeks ago with another cat which has since been homed. Their previous owners allowed us to home them together or separately. Blue is a very affectionate boy and has the volunteers giving him all the affection they can when there is chance! He’s already neutered so nothing is stopping from finding that loving home….just hope it’s soon. Thank you, Faye
