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

`

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

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.

Jess

Posted by brilomax on March 30, 2022

Jess has been signed over into the care of Lancashire Cat Rescue because her family were living in rented accommodation and the landlord became aware that they had cats and threatened them with eviction, as the family had 3 school aged children it was decided that there was no option but to put Jess and Hope (her kitten who has found a loving home) into care.

She is about 3 1/2 years of age, is in good health, neutered, chipped, is fully vaccinated & has tested negative for FIV/Felv.

We were advised by her previous carer that Jess & Hope didn’t get on particularly well and so it proved to be, when Jess first came into care she was grumpy, growly and bad tempered. When her kitten was found a home Jess became a completely different, lovely and sociable little cat. We subsequently introduced her to another nice adult cat & she reverted back to grumpy & growly, so we think it best if she finds a quiet home as an only cat.

If you would like to offer a home to Jess (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! (28/04/2022) Jess has found an indoor home with Alan in Morecambe.

Wren & Robin

Posted by brilomax on March 9, 2022

Wren and Robin are two of a litter of three delightfully friendly 8 month old neutered females.

They (Robin has been homed) were surrendered to Lancashire Cat Rescue due to their carers ill health.

They are a little reserved initially, then very friendly when they get to know you, they have been micro-chipped and have had their first vaccination, their mum has tested negative for FIV/Felv.

Because they have been neutered they are classed as adults so we require a minimum donation of £50 each, they have never been outdoors and we’d like to keep it that way by finding indoor homes for them.

If you would like to offer a home to Wren or (or any of our cats) please call us on 01772 750263, you will have to promise to keep Wren indoors (a catio would be ok) and provide litter trays.

Update! (27/03/2022) Both Robin & Wren have now found loving indoor homes!
