We have decided to reopen our doors on Saturday 23rd May but with very strict restrictions and social distancing and you must have no signs or symptoms of Covid, it is strictly as always appointment only and only 2 people are allowed at any one time (from same household) and would prefer you to wear a mask, gloves will be supplied from here on entrance. As we are in such worrying/strange times I hope you understand our guidelines and respect them. As from the 1st June 2020 we are having to put up our adoption fee from £65 to £75 due to increases in prices and this does fall in line with most rescue’s and it looks as if we can forget this year for fundraising sadly. Will update asap who we have for adoption. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Stay safe Eve & The Team
2019 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 58 adult cats and 70 kittens and re-united only 4 cats with their owner due to being microchipped. Thank you so much for everyone’s support during 2019 🙂 Lets hope 2020 is a good one 🙂 Below some of our expenditure for 2019 which is why we rely on your support 🙂
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

Clarence has had his 2nd post op check and things are looking good, he goes back to the vets xmas eve to have his stitches out and will have his 2nd operation early in the new year, he’s doing really well 🙂
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.

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 🙁
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
Our 6 month old kitten Fili has gone missing from the belle vue area in Shrewsbury! if you could keep an eye out that would be amazing! He is a bit cheeky and could’ve snuck in so please check sheds, cozy corners and under cars! He is neutered and microchipped, any information pls ring Maddy 07415 387 182
Teddy came in on the 29th Aug 2018 from horrendous conditions, living in a rubbish tip in an ally way in Birmingham, upon vet health check they found what they thought was a polyp in his right ear, he went for an op to take it out the following week but couldn’t get it all out but sent a sample to the lab to see what it was, it came back and was advised to have his ear canal taken out completely (TECA) He had that op on 1st Oct and is doing really well, he has had his stitches out and was able to have his buster collar removed and has recovered well. As you can imagine both procedures were very expensive but he is worth every penny as he was so pleased and happy to be rescued, he is so affectionate and loving and got reserved before his TECA op and very pleased to say he goes to his forever home on 28th October where he really will be spoilt to bits. Have a happy life Teddy we will all miss you <3
