Latest arrivals came in need of lots of TLC

It's been another busy week at the kennels which saw us squeeze in nine cats in urgent need of some TLC.

All had fleas and worms and most are painfully thin. They are lapping up all the extra TLC and really are an affection group of cats. Their ages range from about six up to early double figures. It may well be as their condition improves their ages will become more obvious.

Among them are five gingers and two tortishells, as well as a smattering of tabbies. We will ideally be looking to rehome them in pairs as they have lived as a large group for considerable time, although one or two are showing a preference for their own company.

Tara is about 12 and a black(ish) shepherd cross type. She is a lovely old girl who just wants a few home comforts in her retirement. She walks well on lead and loves a nice squelchy bed.

Another dog, with a couple of years on her, is Buster. He is an interesting boy who has spent most of his recent years in a cage. He doesn’t like other dogs, but who can blame him when he saw he was treated so differently to the others in the household. He will need an understanding home, but we are all entitled to be a bit grumpy in our older years.

We still have lots of baby rabbits looking for homes, ideally to go in pairs or as companions. They all need a bit of experienced handling, but are still young enough, given the correct input, to make good pets.
