Jess

Posted by brilomax on February 10, 2021

If you like to live life on the edge? Then Jess is the cat for you!

We had a call from a couple in Preston town centre just before Christmas about a stray cat that was living in their garden shed, they’d grown quite fond of Jess and were obviously sad to surrender her into our care, but Jess was being aggressive towards their own cats. Her mood swings had also been observed.

She is rather unpredictable, lovely one minute then grumpy the next.

Jess has also made it clear she needs to be the only pet as she doesn’t get on with other cats or our Collie dog (Jack).

We think she is about five years old, she has tested negative for FIV & Felv and has had her first vaccination.

Her second vaccination is due beginning of March after which she will be available for homing. 

If you would like to offer a home to Jess and live local to Preston, Lancashire please give us a call on 01772 750263 to arrange an appointment to view (socially distanced of course). If no-one answers please leave a message (Christine still works full time). 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.

Mo & Leo

Posted by brilomax on February 10, 2021

We were asked to help find Mo & Leo a loving home after their owner passed away.

Mo is three years old & Leo is thirteen, ideally we would like to keep them together, they have both tested negative for FIV & Felv, they are fully vaccinated and have been micro-chipped.

Mo is very friendly, Leo was a little unsettled at first but is now much happier, Mo is short haired & Leo is a long hair, he will need a little help with grooming.

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

Update! (10/02/2021) Mo & Leo have been promised a new home in Chorley soon.

Rossi & Rico

Posted by brilomax on February 2, 2021

Rossi & Rico along with another sibling (Pergo) & their Mum (Bella), were left behind when their owners moved house, neighbours fed them & asked us to help. Pergo was quite friendly and has been homed but Rossi & Rico are very nervous and the only time they allow us to touch & stroke them is when they are being fed.

We are hoping that a couple of people with lots of patience & time on their hands will step up and offer these brothers separate loving homes. Failing that we would be looking for outdoor homes which is not ideal.

They are now eight months old, their mum has tested negative for Felv/FIV, they are neutered, fully vaccinated & micro-chipped.

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

Update! (02/02/2021) Rossi & Rico now have a home with Lloyd & Megan in Darwen. They have very kindly stepped up and given them a home even though they know it could be a long and slow process due to their nervous disposition before they will become happy & relaxed family members.

Bella

Posted by brilomax on January 24, 2021

Back in June 2020 we had a call from the Gamull Lane area of Ribbleton, “A tenant has moved out and abandoned a Tabby cat & her three kittens”.
Brian went out to assess the situation, it was evident that none of these cats were domesticated, although maybe not totally feral?

Amazingly Brian managed to trap all four of them in only two or three hours.

Since then Bella has been neutered vaccinated & chipped, but despite having been with us for four months, she is still a little nervous (as are her kittens, more of which to follow). We can pet her while she’s feeding and she sometimes purrs for us, she’s improving all the time.

So Bella needs either a very quiet home with a very patient and understanding carer, or we need to find her a place at a stables or small-holding.

If you would like to offer Bella a home please call us on 01772 750263 to arrange an appointment to view (socially distanced of course). If no-one answers please leave a message (Christine still works full time).

Update! (24/01/2021) Bella now has a home with Matthew & Michaela in a quiet part of Preston with a large garden. They have very kindly stepped up and given her a home even though they know it could be a long and slow process due to her nervous disposition before she will become a willing member of their family.
