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.
Every Christmas morning my good friends and supporters Sam and Fletch come to help me clean out the cats in our care and give some cat chat and cuddles (the cats that is not me!!) There reward…..a glass of Mulled Wine when we’ve finished, lovely lads and so grateful to them for their help

Our special girl Pumkin has gone to her forever home, she will be spoilt to death by her new elderly owner and rightly so.
Pumkin loves her new mum and her new mum love’s her, I do love a happy ending and Pumkin really deserves it, bless her
27/11/13 Update on Pumkin.
Pumkin has been for her second scan, her gall bladder has significantly reduced in size, she is well in herself and her bloods were fine, looks like she is over the worst, there are no guarantees it will not re occur in the future but she may have no further problems either, we have had interest in someone wanting to adopt her so watch this space, she is such a loving special girl <3
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!!

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
