Leona is a very shy 3 year old female cat. Leona has a digestive disorder, our vets have carried out investigations but been unable to fully diagnose the cause but her condition is being managed with a special hypoallergenic food and low dose steroids plus another medication to help settle her stomach - these she takes in a small bit of tasty food or 'easy pill' paste.
Leona requires a safe indoor only home. She would benefit from the company of other cats but must only eat her hypoallergenic food so the cats should be fed seperately (unless another cat also eats the same hypoallergenic food) , it wouldn't matter if other cats ate some of Leona's food.
We will continue to provide all of Leona's veterinary care via our veterinary clinic.
MARCH 5th 2020: CORONAVIRUS COVID-19 SITUATION and Adoption Open Days
We have introduced precautionary measuresat our clinics and rescue centres to try and ensure the continued smooth operation of our veterinary and rescue services and to minimise the risks to the health and wellbeing of staff, volunteers and visitors and potential impact upon our animals.
Extra cleaning and hygiene measures including hand washing and sanitising and regular disinfecting of door handles, waiting room, and consulting room is in place. We are also reducing the number of visitors into the main clinic and rescue centre buildings to reduce risk of contamination to a minimum.
Adoption Open Day tours are therefore being temporarily suspended. Anyone with a booked appointment following a successful home visit will be able to visit to meet and choose cats as usual. Reception will also remain open for anyone wishing to drop in during our Adoption Open Day opening hours to register their interest in adopting a cat. We can also be contacted in the usual way by email and phone. Photos and descriptions of cats in our care awaiting new homes will be on our website.
We are sorry for any inconvenience caused but trust you will understand the reasons for this decision. We will keep the situation under review.
Please note: We do carry out a pre-adoption home visit. This is an informal visit that takes place in your home. We provide any advice you may need about caring for and settling in new cats or kittens – incl health care, feeding, holiday arrangements, dangers in your home etc. We also look at the location of your home to assess for hazards such as easy access to busy roads or for indoor-only homes to advise on making windows or balconies safe. Our cats have varied temperaments and needs so we also discuss what ‘sort’ of cats would be suitable for you, your family, your lifestyle and your home. Once a successful home visit has been carried out you will be invited back by appointment to meet suitable cats either at our Rescue centre or at our local foster homes and choose your new feline companion(s). If you are interested in offering a home to one or more of our cats you are welcome to visit one of our Adoption Open Days prior to having a home visit but unless you have had a successful home visit you cannot choose or reserve cats at one of our Adoption Days.
