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

Further update on Dave July 2011

All our volunteers love Dave to bits and he loves the attention
Further update on Dave 26th June 2011
We are very happy to say since Dave’s last update and increase in medication he has not had another fit which is brilliant news, however Dave has alway’s suffered with gingivitus and bless his heart we know he cant help it but he has very bad breath, I took him to the vets about three weeks ago and he had an antibiotic jab and a steriod jab which improved his breath no end but this week you could see that his mouth was bothering him, so I took him back to the vets and he has had a further two injections, once his gums have settled down a bit we will be putting an additive in his water to help his condition, ideally he could do with a dental but this would be a very last resort as Dave’s condition with his fits he would not handle an anesthetic very well and we may lose him. All in all Dave is very happy and enjoying the nice weather and I am sure we will soon have his gingivitus under control very soon.
Latest update on Dave 19/2/11
Dave’s fits unfortunately have been increasing, he went back to the vets yesterday for a thorough examination, they tested his urine which still has blood and crystals in it and took bloods for testing (which is why his neck is shaved) he has put on a quite a bit of weight since coming into us he now weighs 3.97kg when he came in he weighed 2.2kg, the vet has decided to up his doseage on his medication to double what it was before but still giving twice daily. We hope now that this will keep Dave’s fits at bay. Dave has been with us now just over a year and has adapted to pen life extremely well but then Dave is so laid back I dont think anything would bother him, he still loves his new “Gaff” and sitting on top of his scratching post is his favorite place. If you would like to donate or sponsor Dave for help towards his medication and vets fee’s please get in touch with Eve 07743 644795 or use the contact us page
As you can see Dave is quite happy and contented and has many luxury’s in his pen. He still adores a fuss and having his tummy rubbed, he really is a very special boy!!
Dave chilling in his new “Gaff” he loves it!
Dave has moved into his new “Gaff” today
Dave has now moved home and really seems to enjoy the extra space, he has two activity centre’s and lots of toys and a nice heated sleeping area with an electric heat pad in his igloo, he is a very special little boy who will be very happy in his new “Gaff”. If you would like to donate or sponsor Dave for help towards his medication and cost of the pen (£1,600) we would be very grateful to hear from you, call Eve 07743 644795 or use our contact page

Further update on “Dave’s Gaff”
As you can see it’s almost finished, it really is 5 star accomadation, the electrics have all been done and he has a much larger sleeping area 4×4, the overall size of Dave’s new home is 8×10 so he will have lots of room in there. The path has gone down this afternoon and the last thing to do is tile the floor. We think Dave will be very cosy in his new home. We would like to say a very big thank you to our friend Bob and my husband Ralph for all their hard work and if Dave could speak he would say a huge “Meow” (thank you)
Dave’s Gaff is coming along nicely, it will not be too long before he moves house!
31/10/2010 Update on Dave
Today we have started building Dave’s new home with the help of Ralph (my hubby) and Bob (very good friend) hopefully Dave will be in his new home in the next two weeks
This is our gorgeous Dave he came into the rescue in February after
being abandoned at Bronnington in Whitchurch, he was 6mths to 1yr old,
he was soaking wet and had cat flu,
he then started having fits which is probably why he was abandoned and after many tests found blood and cyrstals in his urine, he is on medication to try and control his fits and now is on a prescription diet, Jenny and I discussed his case at great length and decided he was un-homeable so we are trying to raise money to build his own cat pen to save him taking up one of the rescue pens.
Dave is a lovely boy extremly friendly and loves a fuss, he is more like a dog than a cat, he loves the other cats in the pens next door and now goes for regular walks on a harness and lead around my garden much to the amazement of my own cats. Daves new home will be a lot bigger than his pen at the moment as it is to be his permanent home. If you would like to make a donation or make a standing order please ring me (Eve) on 07743 644 795 or (Jenny) on 07740 103 393
