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.

Dave bless him has had his booster and blood test and passed with flying colours, his blood test showed he is on the right dosage of medication and also had a thorough health check while having his booster jabs, his breathing is fine still so we will just wait for next summer to see what happens, during the winter months Dave does not go out for walks around the garden as too cold and wet, I bet he can’t wait for spring/summer but then thinking about it niether can I haha
Dave’s breathing has been very noisy of late, this happened about a year ago but x rays showed nothing abnormal. I took him back to the vets as he sounded like he was struggling to breath, poor lad, they now think he is suffering with Asthma and allergy related (like hayfever to us) he had a steriod jab that should of lasted 24hrs but unfortunately it didn’t and during the night the stress of him not being able to breath made him have a fit, I took him back to the vets the next day and they gave him a longer lasting steriod jab which seems to have done the trick, looks like in the summer months Dave will need steriod injections to keep his hayfever at bay. He is due his yearly booster vaccination very soon and we will also have a blood test done to make sure he is still on the right dosage for his epilepsy medication. He is such a lovely boy, watch this space!!
Dave tends to go out of an evening now for his walks as it is cooler, he and my cat Harvey seem to like each other and Harvey follows us around the garden
We always end up on the patio! Dave with some of my cats, Murphy, Harvey and Rosie
Aww our Dave having a rest after his nice long walk around the garden, bless him
Myself and one of our volunteers Barbara and Dave went to St Peters Infant School Wem on Monday to give a talk on rescue, Dave enjoyed it very much and loved the fuss and attention, the children were lovely and Dave was on his best behavior……bless him
He stayed on his harness and lead
There were 60 children and Dave was not fazed at all, he loved walking over there tables
Dave is really into his walks around the garden and now cry’s to go out when I give him his medicine in the morning but he has to wait until I come home from work as I just don’t have time first thing in the morning, he has not been able to go out today due to the bad weather but hopefully it will pick up soon and he can go back to enjoying the garden and trying to climb trees!!!! more pics to follow asap
6/5/13 Dave’s first walk around the garden this year and what a gorgeous day, he really enjoyed it and when I put him back in his pen he cried so I had to take him out for more walkies, he met my Rosie which she was not impressed and ran away, Billy hissed at him but Murphey and Dave sniffed nose to nose and Murphy came on the walk too, he is now curled up on his mat quite content and snoozing. He is keeping very well at the moment so long may that continue 🙂
17th September 2012
Dave has a new harness, he still loves to wander around the garden, bless him. He is keeping well and has not had any further fits since February
Dave has moved back into his “Gaff” and is very pleased about it, there are only 3 left of the 8 emergency’s we had in so they have been moved into the outside pen that Dave was in.
Dave has a new toy a Christmas crinkle tunnel, he seems to like it
Bless him he seems to like his new toy and back to much more room
Dave loves you to play with him and since his dental seems very relaxed and pain free, as you can see Dave has never managed to use the cat flap so we wedge it open with a hook and elastic bands, this is so he keeps nice and toasty in his sleeping area, he is such a spoilt boy but rightly so!!!
Poor Dave has had to move back into one of the outside pens due to an emergency call from a Welfare Officer who needed 11 cats taking in from appalling conditions urgently (none neutered). Dave’s pen is the only one big enough to house so many cats, so we had to have a major move around, two kittens had to go into a large collapsible pen in the shed and Dave was moved into there outside pen, hopefully it will not be too long before he is back in his “Gaff”. We co-worked with Rachel of the North Shropshire Cat Protection who neutered all the cats for us which saved us an absolute fortune and we are very grateful to her, unfortunately we only have 8, 3 are still missing and as yet cannot be found, there are 6 kittens approx 12/14wks old and 2 adult females approx 10/12mths old see cats for re-homing. Dave’s post op check went well after his dental but he is a little stressed as he has had to give up his “Gaff” temporarily for the time being, as usual he is getting lots of attention fuss and cuddles.
Update on Dave 8/12/11
Dave’s breath returned to being very smelly even though we were putting the additive in his drinking water, we took him back to the vets and was told it is time for him to have a dental, this took place yesterday at our vets Bridgefield Vet Surgery in Wem. Cats normally have 32 teeth, Dave already had two missing and had to have 19 teeth removed, he has been left with 11 and hopefully he can hang on to those. Below are some pictures of Dave having his dental and you can see what a state his mouth was in he must of been in quite a lot of pain although he never showed it, brave boy.
As you can see Dave’s gums are red raw
His teeth are not much better either
Our vet Olivia Halligan getting to grips with Dave’s dental
It was going to be a long job!
While Olivia gets rid of Dave’s rotten teeth our vet nurse Debbie Minor keeps a close eye on Dave’s vital signs. Dave is doing well and will be going for his post operative check tomorrow, he is feeling a little sorry for himself at the moment but who can blame him after having 19 teeth removed. He is getting extra fuss and loves and basically being spoilt to bits. His dental cost us £195.94 if anyone would like to sponsor Dave or make a donation towards his dental/medical costs which are ongoing please ring Eve 07743 644795 or use the contact us page
