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.

Is this your cat?

Posted by brilomax on March 8, 2022

This cat has been straying in the Millfield Road area of Chorley for the last couple of weeks, she’s not chipped & she’s been paper collared for the last week but no one has contacted us.

A vet has estimated her age to be about 12 years, we think she might be deaf & there is some evidence of glaucoma so her eyesight may well be poor.

Her body weight seems ok and she is very affectionate so we think she must have an owner.

Call us on 01772 750263 if you have any information, lets get her home!

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).

Tessa

Posted by brilomax on February 4, 2022

Tessa was a stray that was brought into the rescue with her four kittens in December 2021.

Her kittens are now weaned, she has been neutered, had her first vaccination & is also chipped, she tested negative for FIV/Felv and is ready for a forever home.

We have guesstimated her age to be about two years, she is a nice friendly cat and is very food orientated.

If you would like to offer a home to Tessa (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.
