Stripey

Posted by brilomax on June 12, 2020

Stripey, a very friendly tabby cat was being fed as a stray. She was found to be chipped, but the registered keeper had re – homed her and did not have any contact details for the new owner.

We were asked to help find her a forever home, she is fully vaccinated, neutered, tested & chipped. If you would like to offer Stripey (or any of our cats) a home, you live local to Preston & can offer a safe, friendly environment for her, then please call us on 01772 750263.

Stop Press! (14/06/2020), Stripey has gone to live with Cath and family nearby in Penwortham.

Event Cancellations

Posted by brilomax on March 25, 2020

We’re sure that it’ll come as no surprise that in view of the Corona Virus situation, we have had to cancel some forthcoming events.

We had booked a double stall at the Preston & Blackpool Cat Club Show which was to be held on Saturday 28th of March, the show has been cancelled.

Our Flea Markets on the 5th of April & on the 3rd of May have also been called off.

It is hoped that we will be able to go ahead with our Flea Market on the 20th of September, but it is by no means certain.

In the meantime we wish all our supporters good luck & good health in these trying times, please stay safe and hopefully we will soon see the back of Covid 19.

Best Wishes from; Brian, Christine, Dawn, Jenny, Sylvia & the cats in care.

Flea Market Update

Posted by brilomax on March 16, 2020

8th March Flea Market

The weather was kinder to us last Sunday than it was in February and our visitor numbers were up. We made £1,060 thank you to everyone who made this possible. Our volunteers who give up their Sunday to man the stalls, those of you who donate items for us to sell and those who come on the day to support us.

We had a nasty incident where an aggressive customer attacked one of our regular stall holders. Many thanks to Paul and Dawn for swiftly dealing with the situation. Paul received a minor injury to his face but the customer was escorted from the premises by Dawn protesting all the way. Well Done the both of you, the police attended and the customer told he won’t be welcome in the future. I’m very proud of my daughter who didn’t hesitate to deal with the man who was much larger than her.

Thanks also to our many helpers on the stalls, in the foyer and in the kitchen who haven’t had a specific mention, we couldn’t do it without you. A big “thank you!” to you all.

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 (preferably after 6pm any evening) 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 20th September).

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 So Much!    🙂

Nellie (aka Pebbles)

Posted by brilomax on February 26, 2020

Nellie (named Pebbles by LCR) was homed by us with her litter mate (Roxy) when about seven months old. Over time Nellie grew significantly larger than Pebbles and began to bully the smaller cat occasionally, however in recent times this bullying became more frequent and a decision was made to separate the pair to protect poor little Roxy, so Nellie now finds herself back in our care looking for a loving home again, probably as an only cat.

Nellie is now almost two years of age, she is fully vaccinated, neutered and chipped. She is friendly and has shown no signs of aggression towards us, she seems a little off her food but this is probably due to being upset at coming back into a rescue environment.

If you would like to offer a home to Nellie (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 her in at night.

Update (20/03/2020) Nellie now has a home with Jo & Max in Preston.

Rizzo

Posted by brilomax on February 20, 2020

Rizzo is an older cat found in the countryside and taken to the vets as she was covered in some sort of pink paint or dye. Poor Rizzo, named after one of the characters in Grease as she is currently a pink lady, also had bite marks and urine stains on her legs. At the vets they tried to wash off the pink but it got worse. Rizzo is still pink after several weeks with us, but it is fading and her legs have got better. Because of her age (we think maybe about 7 – 10 years) and her voracious appetite, Rizzo has had extensive blood tests to make sure there were no underlying issues. Happily all the tests proved that there are no underlying issues and she is good to go to a loving home.

Rizzo is fully vaccinated and micro-chipped. The undercoat of her fur is very dense and she would benefit with some help with grooming. She is very friendly and loves attention.

If you would like to offer a home to Rizzo (or any other 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 her in at night.

Stop Press! (19/06/2020) Rizzo has found a loving home by the seaside on the Fylde Coast with Lisa.
