WE WILL BE CLOSED FROM DECEMBER 14TH UNTIL 2ND JANUARY, WE WILL NOT BE TAKING IN OR RE-HOMING DURING THIS TIME, PLEASE CONTACT US ON 2ND JANUARY IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ONE OF OUR GUESTS, HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY HEALTHY NEW YEAR 🙂
2017 was a strange year for Sleapy Cat Rescue, there was a period in time that we were more like a hospital than a rescue/re-homing centre as everyone we had in was either on prescription diets or medication because unwell, this did effect our homing figures but we still managed to re-home 59 Cats and 59 Kittens. Lets hope 2018 is a little kinder 🙂 We managed to re-unite 9 owners with there pets due to microchips which was great 🙂
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 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
