Cats In Our Care

These cats are NOT YET AVAILABLE for homing.
However, if one of them steals your heart, then feel free to inform us of your interest.
GEORGE
George now
This beautiful fella came into our care earlier in the month and required immediate veterinary assistance. Having arrived severely malnourished, George is continuing to gain weight and was well enough yesterday to be neutered and to have a dental. George, was reported as living as a stray for 3 years in someone’s back garden – this chap deserves a fresh start and we’re hoping he will be ready for an indoor home in the coming weeks
BABE & BAGGY
Meet Baggy & Babe, sadly their owner has passed away and were hours away from being made homeless. So we brought them in as emergency admissions on 17 May 2018.   Baggy (black/white) is 13 and Babe (tortie) is 8 years of age.

 A week on and Baggy and Babe are settling in nicely and have been to the vets.  Both are in good condition but require some minor dental work prior to being ready for adoption.

TWILIGHT
This extremely friendly and affectionate lady came into our care on the 11 May 2018 having been signed over to MK Vet Group 10 days previously as a stray.  She had been fed dog food by a well meaning member of the public, who had also attempted to groom her.
Twilight settled in well over the weekend so is moving into an indoor foster home today for further assessment.  She’ll then be vet checked and all being well ready for homing in a few weeks.

HERBERT

This fluffy lad came into our care on 28 April 2018.  He had been reported as a known stray and hardly left Carole’s garden but the biggest challenge with Herbert was catching him.  It took two different types of cat traps and a few months to trap him but trap him we did and just in time.  Herbert wasn’t chipped or neutered and needed several teeth to be removed.  He’s now had his dental, been neutered and had a little a little hair-cut.  Herbert is still a little annoyed with us but we will give him a few weeks to settle into his new routine and we’re hopeful he will soon forgive us!

RAY
On 16 April 2018, Stewart was out with the intention of trapping a reported pregnant cat.  When Ray took the decision that he actually need help too and walked into the trap and into Stewart’s life.  It was obvious from looking at Ray that he needed to see a vet and within a few days he was being wrapped in a towel by Stewart and Annie and receiving treatment for his eye infection and recovering from cat flu.

Ray is approximately 12-13 years of age and on the 2 May 2018 was neutered and received a full health screen and had a dental.
You can see from the photograph below that his eyes are clearing up and he’s looking better already.  Ray will now be given time to heal and then will be looking for his forever home.

ILSE
Little Ilse came into our care on 6 April 2018.  She received immediate treatment for her blocked tear ducts and was neutered shortly thereafter.  Having settled into foster, Ilse came down with a minor bout of cat flu but is recovering well.

Her fosterer Victoria is treating her eyes 4 times a day and as you can see, they are looking much better.  Ilse is approximately 6 months of age and deserved a better start to her life than this.  She is a shy little girl who is gaining confidence week by week.

This little girl was completely shut down on admission, but now loves a lap to lie on, preferring the company of men and she isn’t too bothered with the family’s cats and dog.  We suspect once fit and healthy, little Ilse will be the boss of her new family.  Not quite ready for adoption, but she’s getting there – week by week.

BEAR

Bear came into our care in February 2018 having been handed into Vets for Pets in Bletchley.  He had been living as a stray for sometime and was struggling with life on the streets.

Having been neutered in early March, Bear came down with a nasty case of cat flu.  Its taken several weeks and lots of TLC from his fosterer for him to start to feel better.

Bear in April

 

By early May, Bear had very mild symptoms of the flu and his personality really started to shine.  Verity is fosterer says “he’s so much more confident and comfortable in comparison to the nervous wreck he was just a few weeks ago! He’s a massive attention seeker and loves nothing more than a scratch on the ear and a tummy rub.

DEREK

Derek came into our care, via Milton Keynes Veterinary Group, as he had reportedly been living as an entire tom for 10+ years and he was very unwell.

Derek is now settling into a lovely indoor foster home, whilst he receives treatment. He is approx 12 years old, and has missed many years of love and fuss.

He is a really lovely boy, who just wants cuddles. He continues to received daily medication in an attempt to stablise his health condition and we remain in close contact with the vets as to his progress.

UPDATE: 16/03/18 – Derek’s previous thyroid blood test showed he was at the high end of normal with a reading of 55, the good news is he is now showing a reading of 32! This is a significant improvement. Derek has also gained half a kilo in weight since his last blood test, and in the last 36 hours there have been improvements with his diarrhoea. This is absolutely fabulous news for our boy.

UPDATE: 10/04/18 – Derek is continuing to improve day by day, he is such a lovable lad who loves to play… you wouldn’t think he’s 10+. The vets are happy with his progress, and are hoping to neuter him very soon.
