Flea Market Update

Posted by brilomax on February 17, 2018

11th February Flea Market

Thank you so much to everyone who came to help on Sunday 11th February, also everyone who braved the hailstones and came out to visit our Flea Market. We made £1,041.00, a wonderful amount and much needed to help with the cats in our care.

Our Valentines Tombola was very popular and we sold out of cakes in the kitchen.

A big “thank you!” to you all.

We do it all over again on the 8 April, please get in touch if you can help in any way.

We are always looking for volunteers to help on the day, can you spare a couple of hours? We have a very friendly group of volunteers but could always use a few more helping hands.

Could you bake some cakes for us?

Give us a call on 01772 750263 if you would like to help in any way.

Needless to say we have now run out of good quality prizes for the Tombola and will need to collect many more prizes for our next Flea Market (Sunday 8th April 2018).

So please keep the donations coming.

If you have any items to donate, please Tel Christine on 01772 750263 or Sylvia on 01772 716837.

Thank You!    🙂

Sweetpea is one of the “Cemetry Road Cats”, their keeper moved house and left them behind to fend for themselves.

A nearby resident built them a shelter in her backyard and kept them well fed, her own cats weren’t too happy about these intruders though and we were asked to help. We took them in but because they hadn’t been handled much they were all quite timid.

She is about eighteen months old and has been neutered, vaccinated and chipped. Sweetpea has now come on in leaps and bounds, although still a little shy we feel she is ready for her forever home.

Ajax (RTA)

Posted by brilomax on January 15, 2017

On Wednesday the 11th of January we received a call from representatives of Deepdale Retail Park in Preston, a large un-neutered, un-chipped and without a collar tabby cat had been found injured on the site, he was in a bad way and was taken to our vet for assessment ASAP.

He was diagnosed as having had a major trauma to his head, he was in danger of losing an eye and was in deep shock.

It was decided that he should be sedated and put on a drip to to treat him for shock and if he survived the night we would take it from there.

Having survived the night we decided to call him Ajax after the Greek warrior who was a great fighter. We were encouraged that during the night he had used his litter tray, so we knew his digestive tract was in good order.

He underwent an operation on Thursday the 12th, he had his broken lower jaw wired and his eye was sewed shut in the hope that it would heal, he was still very poorly and it was our intention to keep him in intensive care over the weekend.

Unfortunately on Friday Ajax’s owners turned up at the vets and demanded that he be put to sleep, we were and are devastated, his owners were given the option of signing him over to LCR were upon we would have taken care of his veterinary care and endeavour to find him a loving home when well enough. Even though our vet assured them that he was heavily sedated and was not suffering, they insisted and on their instructions he was put to sleep.
