Our golden oldies are too often overlooked

We certainly hit the ground running last week. We had lots of animals find new homes, but sadly we had lots of animals waiting to come in.

At the time of writing we still have two longer-haired kittens looking for new homes, as well as some lovely mature cats.

It is so sad to see some of our cats in double figures getting overlooked, either because they are ‘old’ or because “they’ve been in a long time”. This isn’t through any fault of the cats.

Whisky, Ginger, Suki and Spirtzer are lovely cats. They are all approaching just over double figures, but cats can very happily live into their late teens. If you’ve got room for a couple of golden oldies please do pop in and see us.

We have lots of smaller dogs looking for homes.

Sadly, a lot of little dogs have been allowed to get their own way, then their behaviour becomes unacceptable and they end up in rescue.

This doesn’t mean they don’t deserve a home, but they do need one that will suit their individual requirements, usually without children.

We have two lovely Staffies, both 10, Millie and Archie. Both love humans and are exuberant in their affection.

Millie appears to enjoy the company of other dogs, and although we have been told that Archie doesn’t get on well with other dogs, he walks beautifully around them and is the first to look in disgust if one of the dogs starts playing up – butter definitely won’t melt in Archie’s mouth.

Chillie is a larger lurcher type who just wants a comfy bed, lots of walks and to be loved. He is such a loving character who spends most of the day lounging in his bed, unless he thinks it’s worth his while getting up. He has been known, rather than get out of bed, just to stretch his head as far as it will go, followed by his tongue, to reach for a biscuit.
