Sleap, Wem …Proprietor Eve Dodds – 07743 644795

 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

Cats For Adoption

We have a minimum donation of £65 per cat, this doesn’t cover our costs but helps towards it. We would appreciate it if you could donate more than this to help other kittens / Cats find loving homes. Every penny raised goes to looking after the cats whilst in our care and finding homes for them. Some of our cats need extra veterinary treatments and this can be costly, so every penny counts.

Blackie approx 6yr DLH male NOT AT THE RESCUE

UPDATE: I have been and met this lovely boy this morning and he is soooo affectionate, a BIG lad but gorgeous, we feel he may get on with another laid back cat and older children only no dogs, just loves fuss bless him, surely someone would like to adopt him? He’s been in the cattery since March poor lad 🙁 update 15/6/19


This cat is NOT at the rescue. This is Blackie approx 6yr old male neutered domestic long haired and up to date with everything, unfortunately his owner is elderly and no longer able to look after him, he is in a boarding cattery in Barkers Green Nr Wem and has been there since March. He is looking for his forever home but well out of the Wem area as he has a habit of finding his way back home, so would need to be kept in for 4-6wks so he gets used to new location and owners. He is a nice boy but lets you know when he has had enough fuss so he’s looking for a home where he would be the only pet and no children, if you think you can offer Blackie his forever home please contact Angela who runs the cattery where he is staying and she will give you any more information you may need her No is 01939 232863

Hobo 8/10yr old male UPDATE: Hobo will stay with us

IMG_0250 IMG_0251


Hobo is a really affectionate lad and quite laid back, he came in as a stray but no owner has come forward for him, he was already neutered on arrival but while having his health check and vaccine at our vets they suggested bloods as was quite skinny, this showed he has Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) so he has a heart condition which may or may not get worse. At the moment he is doing very well with his condition. He would be looking for a nice quiet home so he does not get stressed, he is looking for a home with no children or other pets, if you think you could offer Hobo his forever home for however long he has which could be years, please get in touch, he’s such a lovely lad and doesn’t deserve to spend the rest of his life in a rescue. UPDATE: Hobo has been back to the vets and they now think he is more like 12/14yrs old and due to his condition he shouldn’t be homed, as we have a NO KILL policy he will end his day’s with us with loads of tlc and love, he is in the pen next to our special boy Dave and we are thinking in time to introduce them together as Dave likes all cats and Hobo is quite laid back.
