MEET THE CATS 1

 

Here you can see the cats who are looking for sponsors.They live with Jean, Brigid and Niki three of the Welfare officers and become much loved members of their households.All are neutered

 

 

 

                                        JOSIE
 
                                   Lilac Point
Josie came in for rehoming as she was biting.After 2 weeks she stopped biting us but everyone who came to see her for adoption was bitten quite badly so after this happened 4 times we gave up trying to find her a home.She is now indoors with Brigid-she can be a rather unpleasant bossy boots with the other cats,hates the newest resident Lulu and  hasn't stopped biting!

                                    BEN
 
                           Blue Point Tonkinese
Ben was handed into Jean because the Cats Protection thought he was a Siamese – previously owned by a girl who put him out of the house because he was dirty(spraying)albeit she did not realise he was a full male – however the CP fixed that the day he came into care.Ben is a Blue Pointed Tonkinese – and was very uptight and cross at first – did not like humans and it took Jean and her husband about 3 months before he could be handled – all sorts of medication was tried to no avail until Jean found some calming drops that worked and he enjoyed being cuddled and stroked, so it was decided he could be rehomed – people came to visit but he was having none of it and reverted to his original state while they were there so he will be staying with Jean.

                                 ZAK
                   Foreign White  UPDATE 3/2017
Zak's owner acquired him unneutered from another breeder in Essex. He was left outside and used to mate the owners Siamese Queens, then the owner lost his home and left with his Siamese Queen but left Zak to fend for himself running wild. We were alerted by the neighbour who managed to get him into the empty house and feed him.  We managed to trap him and brought him to Jean.He was by then feral, still entire and riddled with tapeworms. With much patience,Jean managed to get him to the vet to be neutered, vaccinated, and wormed and this treatment was paid by the Foreign White Cat Society.  He was however still feral and could not be handled so the Trust pays for his food and housing with the help of his adopt-a-Cat sponsors.  As he didn't even have the dignity of a name Jean called him Zak.Over the years Jean continued to work on him but he still needed to be trapped if he needed vet treatment. Eventually Jean was able to fuss him if he was under a blanket but she always hoped he would improve further so we could find him a home. When Jean became ill, Niki was able to coax him into a carrier and take him home. As she had a cat house which runs off her kitchen with a window into the house Zak took up residence there. He is being socialised and with assistance from Loki (see his story soon in adopt-a-cat) is settling into Niki’s home. He does run free in the house at times, but being social with other cats and people panics him so he will need to remain on Adopt-a-cat under Niki’s care. The good news is that he now enjoys cuddles on his terms, and has stopped hiding under blankets -we think Jean is smiling down on him.

                                       LULU
 
                         Chocolate Point Siamese
Lulu was rehomed but the original owner forgot to tell the new one that she had an accident which had resulted in a paralysed tail and some bladder problems which they found very difficult to live with so she came to us. She eventually had most of her dead tail amputated and having that done completely cured her problems.She can be  a bit of a bully with the other girls .She lives in Bromley with Brigid

                                   HANSOME
 
                    Seal Point Birman x  Siamese
Hansome is a Seal Point Birman X Siamese found living wild in a garden next to a very busy arterial road in 2005. He was entire & had an extreme scent gland problem which took 6 months to solve. No prospective owners could even stand to be in the cat house with him, let alone take him home so he became a permanent resident at Niki’s living in heated quarters with free run to the countryside. Unfortunately in September 2010 he unusually went onto the road & was hit by a car. After recovering from a broken pelvis & front leg he has an indoor place by the fire snuggling with the dogs & only goes outside under supervision. Niki

                                       MILLY   
Originally came into Jean with her partner Caspar a Lilac Point of 16 plus years who unfortunately passed away. Myra was 3 at the time and is a Tortie Point only had one eye so was taken in by Jean and loved as part of her household she re-christened her as she kept thinking of Myra Hindley so changed her name to Milly as she has the sweetest nature and is a joy to own. She is now 8 and is in good health.Update 23/04/17 Milly has been found a home with one of our former rescue cats

                                       IVY

Ivy is a bit of a diva and graciously accepted Milly as her friend, they play and sleep together albeit Ivy being Ivy refuses to cuddle up as she considers she is special, which I guess she is – before she was fostered by Jean she had already had 4 homes. She is an escapologist – and if she can get into the garden she feels she has one up on you – last time she was out from 7 p.m. to 10.30 p.m. and got freezing cold as did Jean from trying to catch her! However when she gave up chasing her round the garden and went back into the house leaving the kitchen door a-jar Ivy just walked back in behind her, to Jeans relief and annoyance.  Jean and Ian loved her to bits and she was a wonderful companion to them especially when they were unwell as she seldom left their side.
Due to Jeans death,Ivy and Breezer  are looking for a new home,Please see HERE for details 24/04/17

                                      BREEZER
Breezer is a 15 year old Seal Tabby Point boy that Jean took in due to his age.He took some settling as he had been a spoilt boy who had been the apple of his owners eye before she passed away. Settling him in with Milly and Ivy brought some problems for Jean as he was not used to sharing affection with others and demanded attention, often plonking himself on top of Jean in bed waking her up, or demanding a seat on her lap when she was trying to watch telly. He is a well-built boy and Jean was petite so it was quite a battle of wills but Jean soon trained him to sit beside her or on the many cat beds round the house.Milly and Ivy also got the measure of him and they have now settled down happily together

 

 

                                      DIVA
We homed Diva about 5 years ago to a retired vet.Due to his ill health he had to go into a care home.One was found where he could take Diva as well.Sadly he died not long after so Diva lost her dad and her home.We are not sure of her exact age but she is about 15 and has come back to us and now lives with Brigid

3/14

 

 

                                       MAI                     
Mai came in a year ago with Tritrichomonas Foetus,a parasite that causes dripping diarrhoea.The infection was cleared up quickly but she was left with chronic diarrhoea and it has taken the year to get her well enough to live indoors again. She is still on medication and diet food that is keeping her 'dry' but we are hopeful she will eventually be able to manage without both.She is living with Brigid

                   BLOSSOM AND ROBBIE            
These are two half or throw back Siamese who were rescued in a back garden in Romania by a Dog Rescue group.After being caught and given  pet passports we agreed to take them – they arrived at the end of November 2015 having travelled overland for 2 days in a car.It is assumed they were approx. 8 – 9 months of age and I understand both have been neutered.They live with me in a large house but are totally unhandleable (in fact I would describe them as feral)
UPDATE 12/16
The two terrors are now living at a stables with heated bed and an experienced Siamese owner and friend of the Trust.They do not like human contact and as they are so young we felt they would be better off living an exciting life hunting in the hay barns and stables rather than spending a lifetime in our welfare pens no matter how luxurious we can make them!

 

For that special occasion you could give a years sponsorship of 1 of our cats.In addition to the usual paperwork there is a gift certificate featuring the chosen cat with the recipients details and a record of the occasion.Just let Niki know the details when you send in your application
