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 🙂
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.
Pumkin our latest on going case went for a scan and x-rays y/day, she has a very large gall bladder and they think she has a blocked bile duct, she starts medication today and has to go back for a further scan a week on Monday (25th Nov) to see if the size of her gall bladder has reduced. She is a very very tolerant girl and was as good as gold, while at our vets she had a bath and her nails clipped and looks so much better. Her veterinary treatment is costly, if anyone would like to donate via our paypal button towards this cost we would be very grateful
Pumkin having her bath, what a good girl
Our vet nurses Louise and Debbie giving Pumkin a good suds up!!
Pumkin getting dried off
Pumkin having a good brush and nails clipped, she really enjoyed it
Debbie giving Pumkin a real good fuss after a busy day at the vets
Then back home for tea and her heated igloo
Meet Pumkin as we have called her, she has come in as a stray/abandoned and by looking at her she has been living rough for some time, she really is a sweet natured girl and loves attention, fuss and her heated igloo bed as well as her food.
Our vet Olivia Halligan assisted by our vet nurse Louise Garmston gives Pumkin the once over, age wise she is in double figures and has not got many teeth left but they have been removed by a vet, she has a very strange abdomen that feels like dough, we have had two urine sample’s done and the 2nd has shown blood in it, she will go for an ultra sound scan on Wednesday 13th November……..lets hope it’s not anything sinister………watch this space
Socks as you can see is so much better, his wound has healed very well and he loves it now he no longer wears his buster collar, he is going to his forever home Thurday 13th June. Hope you will be very happy Socks, I’m sure you will!!!!!!
Update on Socks, he has been at the shelter for just over a week and is doing really well, his old absis is doing well and scabbing over nicely, he is going to work with me tomorrow for his post op check and possibly stitches out, he truly is a lovely affectionate boy and has already won the heart of his forever owner when he is better and ready to go, will keep you updated 🙂
This is Sock’s our latest on going case, we took him into our care on Wednesday 1st May. Socks came into our vets that day after being involved in an RTA the day before, it was clear he needed urgent veterinary treatment, he is only 10mths old but the owner could not afford to pay for his treatment so opted to have him put to sleep. I just could not let this happen as he was so young and a lovely lad so the owner signed him over to us. He went on a drip straight away to stabilize him and the vets started to treat his eye but his breathing was definately not right and his temperature was very low but they had to get him stabilized before x rays and treatment. They finally got him stable on Thursday and did x rays then operated for a bad ruptured diaphragm, he has survived the op but is not out of the woods yet but looks a lot more comfortable and is still on a drip and will be in the vets for a few more days yet.
Socks treatment, operation and hospitalization will be very costly, if you would like to donate anything no matter how small towards his vets bill please use the donate button, anything will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Socks is still on medication but has been allowed to come into the shelter, he is a really lovely little lad and has settled well, he adores a fuss and company, hopefully he won’t have to waer the buster collar for too long
This is Teddy a 2yr old un-neutered male, dreadfully matted coat, he must of been in a lot of pain
Teddy was very nervous at going to the vets but had a general anaesthetic while the vet shaved him and the nurse kept a watchful eye on his vital signs
As you can see he has not got a lot of fur left poor boy
This is what was shaved off!!!!!!!!
He has no fur underneath and not a lot let on his body at all, they did manage to comb some of the matts out
This is Teddy all nice and cosy and warm in his nice heated igloo, he is a lovely boy bless him.
Christmas Morning at Sleapy, two very good friends Sam and Fletch came to help out, they helped clean out the cats with me and half way through hubby Ralph made us all bacon butty’s and we had mulled wine then carried on, it was Sam’s 2nd year bless him and Fletch’s 1st but they enjoyed the morning and both said they will come back next year, bless them, not many lads would want to get up early on Christmas morning to clean and cuddle cats….but they did……thank you so much Sam & Fletch xx
These two gorgeous kittens were found dumped in a cardboard box in Shrewsbury, they were only two weeks old! I have been bottle feeding them every 3hrs, the pictures below were taken today (now 4wks old approx) they are coming along in leaps and bounds and will be moved to a pen at the weekend, we call them “Blacknose” & “Whitenose” sister and brother and a good little pair, they will go for adoption when they are 9wks old, I would like them to go together as they have not had a good start in life and stick together like Velcro!!
They like to play with each other now and we can see they are going to be a right pair of monkey’s!!
Update on Winnie Dec 2011
Wow this girl looks good, Winnie has been back to Jenny’s for another holiday, she always settles right back in. She is enjoying life in her new home and loves the log burner this time of year, her owners sent us a typical picture of Winnie being spoilt and rightly so after what she had been through
Aww bless her, what a sweetie!!
Remember our Winnie, update 26/3/11
Winnie was in such a state when she came into our rescue we had to have her completely shaved and you could see every bone in her body, just look at her tail it looks like a rats! She made good progress and put on weight and her coat started slowly growing back. She then found a lovely new home with loving parents who even lit there log burner for her home coming, she is back at Jennys while her owner’s are on holiday and looking great just look at her tail now and she has excellent body weight too
She’s looking good
Just look at that tail now WOW!!!
What a beautifull girl she is now
