Good day everyone from your out and about reporter Hulky Bear from the Cat and Rabbit Rescue.
I have been sitting chilling out this morning on my scratching post in my garden room where I live with the other cats here thinking of what I can tell you about this month.
Things haven't been quiet at the centre. I have been busy arranging to help one of our recently homed cats that went missing a few days after arriving at his new home. I should begin at the start of this story. Last year we had a call from a member of the public that a cat and kittens had been seen at an industrial estate. Mum was so desperate to feed her kittens she was bringing them the bread rolls she found in the dustbin. We rescued them and they came to the centre. The kittens were very nervous and didn't know the staff were trying to be kind to them. As they grew up they became more confident and almost a year later we found them a home together. Off they went a couple of days later we had a phone call one of the kittens (now a fully grown cat) had escaped out of a tiny opening in the window. I sprang into, action organising search parties, getting teams of people to put up posters. His sister was missing him so much she came back to the centre. For 6 long weeks we went on patrol. No sightings no news. We were almost ready to think he was lost forever. Then a phone call, a sighting of a cat that fitted his description. Could it be him? I sent two of my staff to look for him. They came back with news it was him but he was so frightened they couldn't catch him, even with special pilchard dinner. A kind lady whose cat Charlie had made friends with agreed to help us and managed to get him to come into her house. I sent staff to collect him and we reunited him with his sister who told him off and then gave him a big hug. Now all we need is a home for them.
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.
PS: We have a Viewing Day Saturday 28th October 12-2pm. Our Halloween black cat (or any other colour) special viewing. 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.
We would like you to meet Apple Fries a one and a half year old female rabbit. Apple Fries has been at the centre since November 2016 after the rabbit rescue centre she was living at had to close down. After living in 2 rescue centres we would love her to find a loving home and a friend to bond with. She does have a medical issue with her kidneys which doesn’t worry her at the moment. As time moves on it may affect her life expectancy but hopefully not. She has a monthly injection here at the centre which she would come back for as well as any issues with her kidneys would be looked after by the vet at the centre. We can tell you further details if you are interested. Apple Fries has lots of personality and sometimes a bit of attitude but she does love a cuddle and a stroke. She is looking for a loving home with another male rabbit for company. If you have a single male neutered rabbit who would like a friend we can carry out the bonding process at the centre.
Please call for full details of what we do. Please if you think you can offer Apple Fries the new home she so desperately deserves, please do not hesitate to contact us here at the Centre.
