Happy Endings – 2018

 

ILSE

Untitled design

This little girl came into our care (bottom left photo is on admission), having been seen living out on the streets and being harassed by the local tom cats.  Having been admitted, Ilse was diagnosed with early stages of cat flu and also had a blocked tear duct.  Whilst Ilse will need continuing support to keep her tear ducts clear, having received the necessary medical treatment to make her feel more comfortable and over her bout of flu, she was neutered.  The work then began to reassure Ilse that she could be a shy little girl and still come for cuddles and fuss when she wanted. 

Having been admitted in early April, this little girl was ready to find a new home by early June having spent time in foster with both Annie and Victoria.  We were delighted when she was adopted on 14 June 2018.  We wish this little girl a safe and very happy future in her new home.

 

 

 

 

FAITH

This little beauty came into our care having been found on the streets as a stray.  Members of the public had reported her as she was in season and unfortunately entire toms were causing her distress whilst attempting to mate with her.

Having been in foster for 14 days an no owner claiming her, Faith was neutered and put up for rehoming.  We are delighted that this little girl has found a loving home and we wish her every happiness for the future.

BAM BAM and PEBBLES

These cheeky monkeys were born in foster and we thought it would be a good idea to share their journey whilst in foster by way of a blog.

 

We were delighted when they were adopted at 9 weeks of age and can’t wait to hear to how the progress.

ELI

This lad was reported to us with a severe flea allergy and wasn’t chipped or neutered.  On admission he received veterinary treatment and once neutered settled and true personality came out.

We are delighted that Eli was rehomed on 19 May 2018 and has moved to Brighton! We wish him every happiness in his new home.

JESSIE 

Beautiful Jessie came into our care traumatised in October 2017.  She was reported as a cat that was biting and being aggressive.  When she was admitted her behaviour suggested that as a kitten she had possibly been played with inappropriately and she clearly had trust issues.  It took up to February 2018 for her to be comfortable in a family home environment with older children and no other pets.  And its fair to say that Sally, her foster mum has worked wonders.  We have been open and very honest about Jessie and her tendency to bite and this has meant it proved challenging to find her, the right home for her.  But we did 🙂 We were delighted when in May 2018 our shy little girl who loves a snuggle at night was adopted.

SHAY

This beautiful lad was successfully trapped and brought into care back in February 2018.  He was neutered and we hoped that with time he would come round to enjoying our company but being shy in personality and also it seems having had little socialisation we took the decision to find Shay a farm or stable yard.  Unfortunately one relocate fell through meaning Shay stayed in foster a little longer than we liked but we were delighted when he went to his new home in early May with a family who have renamed him Carlos.  We’re sure with time he appreciate the family from a safe distance and will help keep the rodent population down on their property.

BARNIE

 

On 10 November 2017, we received a report of a cat that had been a stray for a number of years (first picture we understand was taken when he first turned up).  After a few years living as a stray, he started to struggle showing signs of dribbling from his mouth and his fur was unkempt.  Both can be signs of dental issues and on admission, Barnie (as Angela his fosterer called him) was diagnosed with dental disease, upper respiration infection and mouth ulcers.  It has taken months of treatment and love to get Barnie feeling better. Photo top right was taken in December 2017, bottom left taken February 2018.  And we were delighted when Angela took the decision that actually Barnie wasn’t a foster cat anymore – he was family.  We are delighted that Barnie now has his furever home…..we couldn’t have asked for more for him and he just looks fantastic now (photographs middle bottom and bottom right are taken May 2018).

SCRUFF

 

This beautiful chap was reported to us several months ago but he was a tricky customer to keep track off.  Eventually a neighbour of one of our volunteers started to feed him and we knew we had our opportunity to get him into foster.

As a fluffy cat, Scruff required a rather radical haircut following admission and was neutered.  It came as no surprise when he got rehomed within 2 weeks of being in foster!

HARRY

Lovely Harry came into our care in December 2017, he had been handed into the vets as a stray and had a severe case of gingivitis and required urgent dental treatment.

At 8 years old, Harry has endured 3 dental procedures to remove his teeth and has since gone strength to strength.  Luckily, it only took a few weeks before Harry’s perfect owners came to meet him and it was love at first sight. For a boy who was very poorly on admission, we are so pleased for him that he has gone to a lovely forever home.

TIGGER 

Lovely Tigger came into our care in March, he was bald following a severe flea infestation and clearly had been a stray for a while.  He was chipped but we have been unable to trace his owner.

Following admission and treatment for parasites, Tigger soon recovered and was adopted at the end of April.

MINKAH

Lovely Minkah came into our care a few weeks ago, at only 10 months of age, he wasn’t neutered or chipped.

Minkah was soon vaccinated and settled right in to foster care. It was love at first sight for Minkah and his new owner Graham.  In a lovely and coincidental way, Tigger and Minkah both went to their forever homes on the same day. We do love a happy ending.

TIGGY 

Our beautiful Tiggy was admitted into foster having been handed into a local vets as a stray.  Her chip details were out of date and at 14 years of age, she really needed somewhere safe and warm so we brought her into foster and after 24 hours she had curled up and made herself at home! It didn’t take long for this lovely lady to find her forever home and we are delighted that this lovely girl has a home she truly deserves.

PONGO

Lovely Pongo was admitted into our care in November of last year, having been found as a stray. He was neutered but not microchipped.
Soon after coming into care it became clear that Pongo was potentially suffering from hyperthyroidism. The vets confirmed this and put him onto long term medication to try and stabilise his condition.
Luckily, after a few months of treatment and receiving lots of love and TLC from his fosterer Verity, the vets confirmed his condition was under control and he was ready to find his forever home.
One of Verity’s friends, had met Pongo and it was love at first sight. We are extremely pleased to say that he went to his forever home at the weekend. His new owner has already sent us a photo of him fast asleep and settled in.

ADA 

Lovely Ada came into our care last month, having been found as a stray. It was love at first sight for Ada and her new family, and we couldn’t be more pleased to say she went to her forever home at the start of April.

BEVERLEY

It’s safe to say that our Beverley has had quite the journey over the past few months. After being reported to us as a stray, she was admitted as an emergency due to her poor condition.

The vet confirmed Beverley had ear cancer, and later that week she was operated on. Rocking her new look, Bev made a speedy recovery and her personality just blossomed.

Beverley was given the all clear from the vets today, and this evening she went to her forever home! We wouldn’t have been able to help give this girl a second chance without your help.

We want to say thank you so much to everyone who donated towards Beverley’s care, as you can see it really has made such a difference for her. We also need to say a huge thank you to Sue Nicholls for her continued support and donations towards Beverley’s care. And finally thank you, to her fosterer Virginia, for keeping her safe, loved and warm whilst she recovered.

We can’t wait to find out how this sweet girl settles into her forever home❤️❤️#happilyeverafter

BRYN

Bryn came into our care after being reported to us as a stray, she wasn’t neutered or chipped, and immediately was showing signs of being feral.

Once admitted, Bryn was neutered and continued to show no interest in human contact. Luckily, we found a lovely farm yard in Oxford, which Bryn was transferred to the other day. We know she will be so happy with her own freedom and space.

LILY

Lovely Lily came into our care last month, after her owner could sadly no longer keep her. She was already neutered and chipped, so we had her vaccinated and she went up for rehoming.

It’s no surprise that our gorgeous Lily expressed a lot of interest, and with such a wonderful personality, she soon found her forever home in March 2018.

SHELDON

Sheldon was one of the first additions into our care this year, he was reported to us along with his brother and sister, Stanley and Mulan, as strays who were taking residence in Bleak Hall Industrial Estate.

They were 5 months, and had not had any human contact before. Naturally, they were scared… and a little fiery!

Shortly after being admitted, the three siblings were neutered and moved to Victoria’s for socialisation. However, after a few weeks, it became clear that Stanley and Mulan were still showing feral behaviours and showed no signs of coming round. We took the decision along with Victoria to find them a lovely farm yard, which they were relocated to in January.

Our little Sheldon however was different, he showed a sense of curiosity and you could see the gentle nature that hid beneath those fears. Victoria worked really hard socialising him, and it really paid off. After a few months in foster care, Sheldon blossomed into the most loving, playful and happy little lad.

Victoria and Sheldon have developed such a wonderful bond over the past few months, that it came as a very decision for her to officially adopt him. We are so pleased for them, we can’t wait to see how cheeky Sheldon grows in his forever home.

ODIN AND MAISIE

These beauties came into our care in early October 2017. Sadly, their owner was going through a separation and was not allowed to take them her new accommodation.

They settled into foster care quickly, with Sue, who absolutely fell in love them. The vets gave Odin and Maisie a good bill of health.

Following this, Sue decided to officially adopt this pair, we knew they would be in the best hands and in a loving forever home. This meant that Sue had to make the decision to give up fostering for us. We would like to say a MASSIVE thank you to Sue for all her hard work, and for being a part of our team.

We can’t wait to see how Odin, Maisie and Sue get on.

Cat cuddles

 

BEN AND JERRY

These gorgeous lads came into our care through some very unfortunate circumstances. Luckily, it didn’t take them too long to settle into their foster home.

At 10 years of age, they were given a good bill of health from the vets. Ben required a dental to get rid of some nasty teeth.

We were so pleased when Julie contacted us and asked if she could meet the boys, it was love at first sight! Now Eric and Ernie, these boys are settling into their forever home with a family who adore them.

BATFINK (FIN)

Our beautiful Fin went to his forever home on Tuesday. Having been given the all clear by the vets following his dental, he was adopted by the lovely family who found him as a stray.

We are so pleased for this wonderful boy, he is going to be extremely loved and spoilt with his new family.

SIRIUS

Our smiley Sirius went to his forever home on Monday! The first picture shows him prior to being admitted to us, the second two were taken in the last week. It just goes to show what getting entire toms off the street, neutered and cared for can really do.
Sirius certainly made an impression on everyone that he met whilst in our care, and we will miss him dearly.
We can’t wait to hear how he settles in.

DAVINA

Our sweet golden oldie Davina went to her forever home at the weekend!

Davina has made the move from Milton Keynes to Tonbridge, and we couldn’t be happier for this lovely girl. She is going to be spoilt rotten in her new home.

28034246_10213885211956653_608169071_o

 

HOGAN

Lovely Hogan went to his forever home at the weekend.

We couldn’t be more pleased for this sweet lad, as he lived as a stray for quite a while before he was reported to us.

Good luck, we can’t wait for updates

 LILY

Lovely Lily came into our care in January, after her owner could no longer keep her due to allergies.

Lily settled really well into foster care, so much so that her fosterer’s decided to officially adopt her!

We are so pleased for this sweet girl, she will be so spoilt with her new family.

TABITHA

Our beautiful Tabitha went to her forever home this week! We are so pleased for her, she didn’t have the best start in life, but can now finally relax in a home she calls her own.

We can’t wait for updates to see how she is settling in.

26855644_10213677974655850_864449031_n

LAYLA

Our sweet girl Layla went to her forever home yesterday, and it’s clear to see she’s already settling in really well.

Layla is only a young girl, who hadn’t had an easy start in life. We are so pleased she has now found her new family, and will be spoilt rotten.

LOKI 
Lovely little Loki came into our care late last year, he was rescued with his 3 siblings and mum.
At approx 5 months old, and having not had much contact with people before, he was obviously a little bit timid.
However, once neutered and settled into foster care, Loki’s lovely personality started to shine. And we were really pleased when he went to his forever home at the start of Feb.

MULAN AND STANLEY

Mulan and Stanley came into our care in the new year. At 6 months old, with no human interaction previously, they were extremely nervous.

Despite a lot of time and patience from their fosterer, Mulan and Stanley were still showing feral behaviours. Therefore, we realised it was in their best interests to be relocated to a lovely farm, where they can spend their days roaming and relaxing.

They went off their new home yesterday, we know they will live a very happy life.

BILLY

Beautiful Billy came into our care in December, having been reported to us as an entire tom, he sadly wasn’t chipped and was in a very bad condition.
As soon as he arrived, we knew Billy was a special boy and he soon won over the hearts of our volunteers. Once neutered, Billy developed into such a loving and wonderful boy, who just needed to be loved.
We are so pleased to say that Billy has gone to his forever home, and he has really landed on his paws with his new family.
We can’t wait to hear how gets on.

26909132_10215143015588393_942297183_o

We can’t wait to hear how settles in.

PEPPER

Our lovely girl Pepper went to her forever home at the weekend!

We’ve already received this picture of her settling in. I think it’s safe to say she is very happy and content.

We can’t wait for more updates.

26909963_10213723000301463_464808174_o.jpg

LOLA
Lola came into our care in December, with five of her kittens. She was only a young girl herself, and had clearly been living as a stray for quite some time, as she also had a 5 month old kitten with her as well.
Once she’d settled in, and the kittens were a little bit older, Lola was neutered, vaccinated and chipped. She developed into a lovely girl, who just needed a second chance in life.
Luckily, her purrrfect owner wasn’t far away, and she went to her forever home in January.

TOMMY
Lovely Tommy came into our care in September last year, after being reported to us as a stray. He had a quite nasty flea allergy, that required treatment and he was an entire tom.
Once neutered, and his treatment began working, Tommy started to feel lots better and blossomed into a wonderful boy, who loved his fuss and cuddles.
We were so pleased when Tommy found his forever home in January of this year.

HOLLY 

Holly came into our care a few weeks ago, after she was taken to Milton Keynes Veterinary Group. She is an older lady, who was not chipped.

Holly settled well into foster care, and received lots of love and TLC. We are pleased to say that Holly’s forever home was not far away, and she was officially adopted this week.

HUNTER 

Hunter came into our care just before Christmas, as he was sadly about to be made homeless.

He settled into foster care really well, and absolutely loved to run around and cause some mischief! Once up for rehoming, we had a lot of interest in him, luckily in amongst those was his ideal home.

Hunter went to his forever home in January.

TRUDY

Gorgeous Trudy came into our care, after her owner could no longer keep her due to allergies.

She was only 14 weeks old, and such a loveable little lady. Her fosterer absolutely fell in love with her and her cheeky personality, and she was officially adopted by them this week.

Now renamed Dolly, she has fitted in really well into their home and we get a lot of updates on how she is doing.

26695133_745191455681845_868564153_o

 

BUNGLE AND ZIPPY

Our gorgeous dynamic duo Bungle and Zippy went to their forever home at the weekend.

They came into our care after being reported to us as two unneutered strays. Once in care, they were neutered and received lots of love. At only 8 months old approx, they were ready for their second chance in life.

Luckily, their new home was meant to be. We are really glad they will get to enjoy the rest of their lives together, in a loving home.

26735632_10213623852462829_968249154_o

EINSTEIN

Einstein came into our care after being found as a stray.

Although he wasn’t chipped, he was neutered. He is approx 10 years old, and settled into foster care really well. Such a loveable lad, who just needed some TLC as he was in a bad condition when he first came to us.

We were really pleased when Einstein met his perfect new owners in December 2017, and was officially adopted in January of this year. Good luck in your forever home lovely boy x

26771817_10213623853142846_1445859630_o

 

 

MIA

Lovely Mia came into our care with kittens in the summer. She was so protective of her little ones that it took a very long time for her to trust anyone.

Only Mia knows what she went through whilst surviving on the streets but once her kittens were rehomed….her amazing fosterer spent a lot of time with her and Mia just grew in confidence!

Mia got a lovely Christmas present this year. When her fosterer announced that she was the perfect addition to their home, and they had decided to officially adopt her. We can’t tell you how delighted we all were to hear the news and we know secretly its what Mia has wanted for a long time x

We can’t wait for further updates on Mia in her forever home.

SMUDGE 

Smudge had been living as a stray before he was reported to us. He was an entire tom, who had been living a tough life, and had a nasty skin irritation.

Once in care, he was neutered and received veterinary treatment for his skin irritation, it was also confirmed he had a heart murmur.

It took time, but Smudge started to really blossom and show off his wonderful personality. He had sadly forgotten how it felt to be able to trust people, and it would take him a little while before he was comfortable with you.

We were so pleased when Smudge met his purrrfect owners, who knew exactly the type of home he needed. We can’t wait to see how he gets on in his forever home.

26695476_10213610573970875_1585612623_o

 

WALLY

Our lovely boy Wally went to his forever home this week. Having been admitted into our care at just 8 weeks old, it’s safe to say he was less than impressed at being trapped!

He was extremely frightened to begin with, and struggled adapting to being around people. But once his sister Polly was adopted, he began to flourish and realise that cuddles weren’t so bad after all. Shortly after, Wally was moved to a new fosterer, somewhere with a bit more space and freedom to roam around. He really began to develop a loving and cheeky personality.

We were so pleased when Wally found his forever home, and can’t wait to hear how he gets on. Massive thank you to his two fosterer’s Angela and Victoria, for their continued patience and efforts to bring Wally round, it definitely paid off!
