Snip & Chip Campaign

Posted by brilomax on February 17, 2022

Lancashire Cat Rescue have been left a small legacy, and while we still need to continue fund-raising for the cats in our care, it has been decided to use the money for a “Snip & Chip Campaign”, hopefully we can make a difference and reduce the amount of unwanted kittens in our area. There is limited availability while we have the necessary funds.

To apply for a voucher please call 01772 750263 (leave a message if no one answers).

Silver

Posted by brilomax on August 8, 2022

Silver (a brown tabby!) was signed over to LCR because his previous carer was not able to afford the veterinary fees to pay for his right rear leg amputation.

It’s unclear as to how his leg was damaged in the first instance. He is a very friendly boy and is learning to live with his disability a little bit better with each passing day. Silver is about 9 months old, has been neutered, has tested negative for FIV/Felv & is fully vaccinated.

Because of his disability we would prefer that Silver goes to an indoor home.

If you would like to offer a home to Silver (or any of our cats) and live local to Preston, Lancashire, please give us a call on 01772 750263 and make an appointment to view. We expect a minimum donation of £50 for our adult cats.

We will always consider homing cats to busy traffic areas so long as it’s agreed to keep them as indoor cats.

Bear

Posted by brilomax on July 7, 2022

Bear was homed by Lancashire Cat Rescue as an outdoor mouser at a large property near Garstang when he was a nervous kitten of six months to a feral mum in 2016. Since then due to a change of circumstances his carer has had to relinquish the property which had become too much for her to manage on her own.

We think that Bear who is still quite shy and wary of humans would be best suited to a similar environment, ie a smallholding, stables or similar where someone can keep a watchful eye on him and make sure he is fed and sheltered.

He is now six years old, in good health, fully vaccinated, has tested negative for FIV/Felv, micro-chipped and weighs in at at a healthy 3.7 Kg.

If you can offer a suitable location for him please call us on 01772 750263.

Cookie

Posted by brilomax on July 6, 2022

Cookie has found herself in the care of Lancashire Cat Rescue because her previous keeper was advised by medical professionals that Cookie was having a negative effect on his Eczema condition.

Initially Cookie was very unsettled in the rescue environment, she was quite manic & had an unfortunate liking for attacking feet and generally seemed to be unhappy with her lot.

Well! What a transformation, she has now settled down and is a very friendly cat that will no doubt make someone a loving companion. She will be two in September, she likes her food and weighs in at a very healthy 4 1/2 Kgs, she has tested negative for FIV/Felv, is neutered, chipped & has had her first vaccination.

Cookie has always been a house cat & we would like to keep it that way.

If you would like to offer a home to Cookie (or any of our cats) and live local to Preston, Lancashire, please give us a call on 01772 750263 and make an appointment to view. We expect a minimum donation of £50 for our adult cats and a commitment to provide a litter tray (or trays) and keep them in at night.

We will always consider homing cats to busy traffic areas so long as it’s agreed to keep them as indoor cats.

Great News! (06/07/2022) Cookie has found an indoor home with Alan & Alison in Preston.

Princess

Posted by brilomax on June 29, 2022

Princess is a long haired blue & white cat that came into the care of Lancashire Cat Rescue when it was thought that she was a stray, which in a way she was, for reasons unknown she chose to leave home and live rough in the local area, being a long hair she soon became matted and was brought to our attention by a Lancashire Cat Rescue member, we chatted with the registered keeper and it was decided that it was in Princess’s best interest that we try to find her a new home.

She was quite out of sorts for a while in the rescue environment, but she’s settled down now, she is a lovely gentle cat with a beautiful soft coat (well it will be beautiful when it grows back!), we think that she would like a nice quiet indoor home. Princess has tested negative for FIV/Felv, she is chipped, fully vaccinated, neutered, weighs in at a very healthy 4.5 kg and is twelve years old.

If you would like to offer a home to Princess (or any of our cats) and live local to Preston, Lancashire, please give us a call on 01772 750263 and make an appointment to view. We expect a minimum donation of £50 for our adult cats and a commitment to provide a litter tray (or trays) and keep them in at night.

Update! (04/07/2022) Princess has found a quiet indoor home with Samantha & Simon in Preston.

Pollyanna

Posted by brilomax on June 8, 2022

Pollyanna, came into the care of Lancashire Cat Rescue after she turned up at a young couples house in Chorley asking for food. Enquiries were made locally, on Facebook and on our Website, but no owner came forward.

We think she’s about 12 years of age, seems a little unsteady on her feet and doesn’t seem too comfortable climbing,

She’s friendly enough, loves to be brushed & would like a quiet indoor home.

Unfortunately she has had a few fits while in rescue, but not frequently enough to warrant medication.

She has tested negative for FIV/Felv and is fully vaccinated and chipped.

Because Pollyanna is not a young cat LCR will offer lifetime veterinary support to any adoptee for age related issues if anyone is kind enough to offer her a home.

If you are that special person and would like to offer a home to Pollyanna (or any of our cats) and live local to Preston, Lancashire please give us a call on 01772 750263 and make an appointment to view. We expect a minimum donation of £50 for our adult cats and a commitment to provide a litter tray (or trays) and keep them in at night.
