    Delyth – at the Rainbow Bridge

    🌈 A hello and a goodbye 🌈 Late last week, we took a cat out of the pound who reportedly had a large cyst on her stomach. The closer we looked, the more sinister it seemed, and sure enough when we got Delyth to the vet, the cyst turned out to be cancer. It was…

    Wilma

    As we’ve mentioned before, we don’t usually have “forever fosters”, because we can’t afford to support foster cats endlessly when they are healthy and purrfectly adoptable. But Wilma is one case where being a forever foster is the best option for her. Wilma’s age is recorded at just over 13 years, but we actually think…

    Mickey – a story

    From Mickey’s foster carer: We had an emergency situation where kittens needed foster care quickly – with nobody else available I put up my hand (perils of being an admin of a rescue! You end up taking fosters you don’t really have room for, at short notice). I got four kittens delivered at the same…

    Big Boy

    Words from Big Boy’s foster carer: “I’ve had cats all my life. Some might say that cats are my life. The relationship between a human and their cat is very special. But every now and then a ‘different’ cat comes into your world. A cat who you’re sure was human in a past life and…

  • Dante

    Dante

    Dante was a beautiful black boy who came to the rescue as an ex-abused cat. He had been kicked around and used as a “play thing” for his former family’s dog. You could tell that he didn’t trust, and biting was a way of defending himself. He was also desperate about food, biting and scratching…
