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.

In this section we have some of our residents stories that are still ongoing as in treatments, we desperately need donations to help with these and all our activities to do with re-homing cats.
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
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
Minnie’s condition is getting harder to get under control, she has been on antibiotics which she is still on plus her steroids and still she has drippy diarrhea, we have taken her off the gastrointestinal diet and put her on Hills prescription dd diet, she ate that for a couple of day’s then stopped eating and started to be sick, she was in our vets Bridgefield Veterinary Surgery Wem for 7 days on a drip. She wen’t back to the vets on Monday had a antibiotic jab a vit B12 jab and a wormer, we also now have got her on Hills Prescription zd wet and dry, yesterday she seemed so much better but today she is back to dripping everywhere 🙁 She has to go back to the vets again Monday, so watch this space and pray for this sweet girl <3
This is our latest ongoing case “Nellie” such an affectionate girl, she got run over by a tractor in Edstaston and was handed in to our vets, she had a fractured pelvis and had to have it operated on, no owner came forward so she is with us until better and can be re-homed, strict cage rest for this girl bless her, she adores her food (felix as good as it looks) little piglet 🙂 UPDATE: Nelly is now in her forever home bless her
Little Beth has finally been homed, what a sweetie she is, she was given the all clear by our vet and off she went, she has settled well with her new family 🙂
Beth went back to the vets Friday as was not happy with her progress, she had a temperature so was given another long lasting antibiotic injection, her eyes have small ulcers so has different eye drops that have to be given 6 times a day, they are looking a lot better already and although she was eating well before her appetite is now even better 🙂 She has to go back for another check up next Thursday. Come on Beth get well soon
This is our little “Beth” as we have called her, she was found full up with cat flu, she came in on Tuesday afternoon and has been at our vets Bridgefield Vet Surgery since Wednesday on a drip, she’s such a little sweetie and purrs at the drop of a hat, she goes to meow but nothing comes out 🙂 Hopefully she will be on the mend soon as she is getting the best care possible. Get well soon Beth <3
Little Tom wen’t back to the vets on Friday and fantastic news, not only have we been able to save his tail but his leg as well 🙂 so we had his 1st vaccine done and got him microchipped and now he is up for adoption. It’s been a long haul but so worth it. Don’t think he will be with us long now as such a sweetie 🙂
