2018 was a very busy year for us as a small rescue, sadly people are still not neutering their cats or microchipping which is the best way they can be reunited with their owner, we re-homed 60 adult cats and 79 kittens and re-united only 2 cats with their owner due to being microchipped. Unfortunately we will no longer be doing our monthly stall in the Square Shrewsbury, this is due to cost and new council licensing laws plus we are all getting that bit older with age related problems but we will be doing more fete’s etc. Thank you so much for everyone’s support during 2018 🙂 Lets hope 2019 is a good one 🙂
All cats and kittens adopted from Sleapy Cat Rescue come with 5 weeks free insurance – Whatever their age! Agria pet insurance.
Please note all viewings are by appointment only ring Eve 07743 644 795

PLEASE BE AWARE WE WILL BE CLOSED FROM FRIDAY 13TH DECEMBER UNTIL THURSDAY 2ND JANUARY 2020 ALL OF US AT SLEAPY CAT WISH YOU A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY HEALTHY NEW YEAR, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT 🙂
This is Clarence approx 8yrs old who had been living on the streets in Shawbury, a kind lady was feeding him but needed to lend a trap to catch and get him neutered, which we lent and paid for the castrate, he didn’t look like this when found he was grubby and a bit battle scarred, she let him come in her house and he settled well but he kept attacking her two cats which is why he is now with us, he’s a very affectionate cat but on vet health check his ears are full of polyps and needs both ear canals taken out, the estimate for this is £1600 per ear, we do get a discount so will be paying £1300 each ear a total of £2600 a great deal of money, we put a plea on our Facebook page and in just over 48hrs our supporters raised £2407 WOW how amazing is that. Clarence is booked in for his first operation on Tuesday 10th Dec and will have the other ear done a month later, he will be with us for quite some time due to the healing process. Eventually he will be looking for his 5* home with someone who has a cat proof garden or catio as he can not be free roaming as he will be totally deaf. Watch this space for updates
Bob was last seen on Thursday 21 November 2019. He disappeared from his home at 9 The Bank, Pontesbury Hill after breakfast. Bob is a neutered ginger male and is microchipped. He is 3 years old. He is quite adventurous and a good mouser. We did find a dead rat in our garden the following day so are hoping there is no connection. Bob’s two feline pals are pining and searching for him.

JEZ IS NOT AT THE RESCUE WE ARE HELPING THIS LADY TO RE-HOME HER CAT AND TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ADVERT.
This is what the owner has said
Jez is an 8 year old boy who although may be a little shy at first is extremely friendly. He does not like to be held but is a lap cat and would love nothing more than cuddles all day. He is used to children, other cats and dogs but due to him having a food allergy which is controlled by a veterinary diet he will not be able to have access to their food. He is neutered and will be wormed, de-flead and up to date with vaccinations. The current owner is looking for a new home for Jez who will have a bit more time for him and who will be able to keep him indoors with a litter tray. There will be a donation which can be discussed with the owner. He is currently in Telford and for further information please contact: PLEASE CONTACT THE OWNER DIRECT IF YOU ARE INTERESTED

It’s with a very heavy heart I have to tell you our very special boy Dave was put to sleep this morning, It really wasn’t an easy decision, I couldn’t put him through any more, his eye’s told me “Mum I’ve had enough please let me go” Dave was such a lovely boy, as you may of read he came in on 16th Feb 2010 they thought to be 6mths to a year old, and was epileptic which meant he had to have medication morning and night, he also had urinary problems from day one, he was recently diagnosed diabetic as well which meant insulin injections twice a day, we could not get his dosage right and was found to be insulin resistant, he was incontinent and stopped using the litter trays completely, so we had to use incontinence pads everywhere, we had various other tests done and they tested for acromegaly but he was deteriorating fast and when they suggested tests for cushings disease as well I felt I can’t put him through any more. Dave was an incredible cat, he had been to the local primary school 3 times to see the year 1’s and to a nursery which he loved and all the attention, he also loved walking around my garden on his harness and lead, my own cats didn’t take any notice at all. We will all miss Our Dave and sure his house mate Hobo will too. We are having him individually cremated and ashes back. God bless you Dave run free over that rainbow bridge, so sorry we couldn’t save you :'( Love you Davey Boy Lemon <3 <3 <3
Dave went to the vets for the day last Friday sadly his glucose curve was abysmal, he is insulin resistant, they have taken more bloods to test for Acromegaly if this comes back positive it will not be good for Dave as he has been through so much already, poor lad is still incontinent as well and treatment would be radiotherapy and an operation which would be specialist, I cannot put him through all that, he looks depressed as it is and who can blame him :'( Will keep you informed, the test results take 7/10 days 🙁
Bella is a lovely girl once she knows you, she is a quiet girl and would suit being the only pet. She has been vet health checked, wormed, de-flead and fully vaccinated, she was already neutered and chipped on arrival, so up to date with everything 🙂 Home check and adoption fee apply, no busy roads pls. Comes with 5wks free Agria Pet Insurance. Interested?

Our special boy Dave has been very unwell, thinking he had another urine infection I got a sample and took him to our vets on 4th Oct, they took bloods and tested the urine which was found to have blood in it, it also showed from the bloods that he is now diabetic as well as being epileptic 🙁 poor Dave, we are struggling to get the right dose of insulin, he came back with antibiotics, needles and insulin, he started to be incontinent so needed incontinent pads to lay on, he’s had an appointment every tuesday to check levels and a glucose curve every friday for 3 wks and is due again on Fri 1st Nov, each curve costs £120 once we get his insulin correct the incontinence should stop and then we can investigate why he keeps getting urine infections and always has blood in it, he had x rays and a ultra sound scan last year which didn’t really show much so this means he will need a CT Scan which will be in the region of £1500.00. Would anyone like to sponsor our special boy? He has been with us since 16th Feb 2010 and already has medication for his epilepsy twice a day and now twice daily insulin injections. If you would like to sponsor Dave you can donate on here and set up a monthly donation even £5 a month would help as no amount is too small and would be most appreciated, if you would like further information please contact me Eve on our contact us page
Richard & Tia are brother and sister 11yrs old and can be a little shy around strangers but once they know you they are fine, very young at heart and very affectionate, no good with dogs. They are indoor & outdoor cats but do have a litter tray indoors. They are both neutered and chipped and the owner is in the process of ensuring vaccinations, worming & fleaing are up to date Richard has the dark stripe down his nose. They both like to eat Whiskers 11+ wet food and Whiskers dry. We are trying to help this lady re-home these two beauty’s due to her having life changing surgery which will result in her having Immunol Suppression so she can’t be around them after November. Please note these two are NOT at the shelter it is a home from home and there will be a donation which must be discussed with the owner. They are in Castlefields Shrewsbury at the moment.
