I am focusing on four such cats who are in desperate need of homes and will be promoting them as much as I can. The local papers do occasionally feature our animals but we seldom have a response from the articles so we need to think of another way to promote ourselves to the media and encourage more people to offer homes. All suggestions welcome. What often worked at the Liverpool shelter fails to work in this area unfortunately but please get in touch with ideas. I will also be putting them on the catchat website under the Top Cats section.
Pictured are the four cats I have opted to promote this month. Harry the white and tabby is four years old ( his owners moved overseas )and we admitted Harry and several of his pals(some also still here) Then there are Bobo and Annie, sweet natured middle aged cats who must stay together and timid Poppet the grey and white who fails to attract attention from visitors as she is shy and holds back when strangers come into the cattery. All have been here over a year now and we need to work together to try and place them in suitable homes. Please spread the word about our many lovely cats.
Suggestions for names will be welcome, there are two boys and a girl.The girl is the one on the right at the back.
Like so many people who keep in touch with Freshfields via facebook, I was so angry about the pregnant lurcher thrown over their fence. Yes ,the owner at least abandoned his dog where she would be taken care of but to hurl a pregnant bitch from the boot of his car over the fence is cruel to say the least. I am pleased she already has been offered a home and that the pups she is carrying appear to be unharmed.
A few days ago I received an impassioned pleas from a lady called Claire who had lost one of her elderly ponies. The surviving pony was becoming very depressed without his longtime companion and she wanted to know if we had a suitable pony she could have. After a chat with Rosie and Mei, it was decided that Caspar the little grey whose own companion Honey had died a few months ago, might fit the bill.
The home was checked for suitability and passed, and yesterday Caspar went off to his new home in Anglesey. I rang to see how he was doing and he has made friends already with his new pal; the two are already following each other around the paddock and Claire is delighted to see her old pony brighten up again
22 years old Caspar pictured (pn left) is seen here with his old companion Honey and Rocky the coloured horse.This was taken a year ago at the shelter .I think Caspar will be happier with a special companion of his own, he is a sweet natured little pony and will have plenty of attention where he is now.
