Sooty

Sooty. Re-homed with an elderly gentleman in weardale, thanks to Jan at Farplace..

Male cats will fight for the right to mate.

They can also catch and spread feline diseases, some of which can be fatal and some are un-treatable with conventional medicine.

Sooty was one such cat.

He had multiple abscesses and wounds from fighting.

He was one of the lucky ones.

He recovered, was neutered and went on to be rehomed thanks to Jan at Farplace.

Wendy. Dumped, emaciated and with 3 small kittens. In need of a home.

Wendy. emaciated and with 3 small kittens.

Female cats can breed from 6 months old and can become pregnant whilst they are still nursing kittens. Male cats will often kill her kittens to bring her “on heat” again.

They can also catch and spread feline diseases, some of which can be fatal and some are un-treatable with conventional medicine.

Wendy was one such cat. She was found emaciated and nursing tiny kittens.

Look how thin her tail is. She hadn’t an ounce of fat on her.

In our care, Wendy went on to make a full recovery, was neutered and went on to be rehomed with a delightful family in Mirfield.

Her kittens also survived and went on to make lovely pets.

Do the responsible thing – have your cat neutered
