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).

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.

Cookie

Posted by brilomax on May 17, 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.

Quinny

Posted by brilomax on April 12, 2022

Quinny (we think she’s about six years old) and her kitten Harley came into our care at the end of August 2021 after a member of the public observed that Harley was in danger of being run over while he was playing in the middle of a country road near Grimsargh. We managed to trap them both with not too much difficulty, Quinny was extremely nervous, but little Harley was a lot more chilled.

As is our usual practice we had Quinny tested for FIV/Felv prior to being vaccinated, sadly Quinny tested positive for FIV(Feline Immunodeficiency Virus), this is a complicated condition that can be passed to other cats by biting and possibly by grooming. It was thought that in all probability young Harley would have contracted the condition from his mum, however the blood test to determine this is only reliable on felines of at least six months old. Consequently we waited till Harley was seven months & then had him tested, to our surprise and relief he was negative and has since found a loving home.

Quinny is still quite nervous (although less so at feeding time), but her condition means that she has to be an indoor cat either on her own or with other FIV cats, FIV cats cannot mix with regular cats for fear of spreading the condition. Hopefully there is someone out there who is prepared to give her a loving home. If any complications arise due to her condition in the future then LCR will cover any associated veterinary costs.

If you would like to offer a home to Quinny (or any of our cats) and live local to Preston, Lancashire away from any busy roads 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 if it’s agreed to keep them as indoor cats.

Dusty

Posted by brilomax on April 5, 2022

`

Dusty has been signed over into the care of Lancashire Cat Rescue because her family were moving house & for some undisclosed reason didn’t feel the need to take Dusty with them to their new home. 😦

She is about 18 months old, is in good health, neutered, chipped, has had her first vaccination & has tested negative for FIV/Felv.

She seems to be quite chilled & very calm in nature, we have been advised that she rarely went outside (her choice) with her previous family

If you would like to offer a home to Dusty (or any of our cats) and live local to Preston, Lancashire away from any busy roads 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 if it’s agreed to keep them as indoor cats.

Update! (12/04/2022) Dusty has found a quiet indoor home with Bob &, Aileen in Burnley.

Harley

Posted by brilomax on April 1, 2022

Harley, seen here with his feral mum Quinny is a delightful, friendly little boy of eight months who’s been with us for far too long. He came to us with his mum in September last year when he was about six weeks old. His mum Quinny was fully feral at that time and when she was neutered shortly after coming into rescue she tested positive for FIV (Feline Infectious Virus). This is a condition that can be passed on to any cats in close proximity by grooming or/and biting, but the test is only accurate on cats of at least six months old, for this reason we’ve had to wait until now to have Harley tested, to our great surprise & relief he has proved to be negative for FIV/Felv.

So if you would like to offer Harley a home please call us on 01772 750263, we require a minimum (more is always welcome) donation of £50, he is neutered, chipped & fully vaccinated. Any adoptees will be expected to keep him in at night and provide a litter tray. We would like to home him to a low traffic area or we always encourage adoptees to consider keeping LCR cats & kittens as house cats.

Update! (04/04/2022) Harley now has an indoor home with Richard, Nicola & their three house cats in Chorley.

🙂
