Hello it’s me again your out and abouter reporter for the Cat and Rabbit Rescue Centre, Hulky Bear.
Welcome to my final report of 2017. I don’t know where this year has gone it has flown by so quickly.
Some sad news to start I lost a good friend a few weeks ago.
Solomon passed away suddenly he was one of the out and abouter cats for about 20 years. I am told he just turned up here and never left. He didn’t want the staff to touch him but liked to sit and watch them working. He loved all the other cats and we are missing him lots as he used to snuggle up to us in the garden room and always had some great stories about the centre to tell.
One of my other friends here is Ada Pretty she also has lived here for about 20 years and as a lady we do not talk about her age. A few months ago she had a very bad eye. It made her very sad. Our vet had to remove the eye. She recovered well but I wanted to do some-thing to cheer her up after her operation. I started a training programme for her on how to do some reporting under my supervision of course. She is now writing features and coming along really well. Losing her eye has made her even more pretty and she is now looking amazing.
The staff here have now put all our rabbits and guinea pigs in their winter accommodation it get very cold out in the rabbit enclosure so they need to in more sheltered pens during these cold months.
Don’t forget we stop homing over Christmas, all the animals will be looking forward to special treats on the day. Of course no turkey bones for the cats as it can cause injuries but some fresh turkey for lunch will be on my present list.
I want to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and New Year. I hope to see you all in 2018.
If you are interested in adopting a cat, kitten, rabbit or guinea pig then please call us here at the centre on 01243 641409 between 9-4pm during the week.
Double Chocolate Magnum
Let us introduce a handsome gentleman called Double Chocolate Magnum. He is a stunning 10 year old male rabbit.
He came to the Centre in July 2017 after his owner who loved him very much passed away.
He is very friendly and loves to have lots of fuss and cuddles. His favourite time of day is the morning when the staff go in to check the rabbits. He runs over so excited that someone is coming to talk to him. He has a special bed he sleeps on complete with a pillow and loves his food. He would love to be homed as either a single house bunny or he can be bonded with a spayed female. He is un-neutered as our vet feels he is too old to be put through the operation. He would love to find a forever home to live out his golden years and be loved again. Please if you think you can offer Double Chocolate Magnum the new home he so desperately deserves, please do not hesitate to contact us here at the Centre.
PS: We have a Viewing Day Saturday 27th January 12-2pm. Viewing days are non-appointment days so people thinking of adopting a cat can pop along. Otherwise we re-home 7 days a week by appointment only.
