Welcome to Goole & District RSPCA
Recently the branch have had an increase in cats coming into care
with complex medical conditions. In the last few months we have had an
number of cats abandoned with three just in the last few weeks. Sadly it
is becoming an increasing problem as more and more pet owners are unable
to afford their animal’s medical needs.
A few weeks ago a cat came to us having been discarded by his owners. His ears were in such a state they both had to be amputated. Thankfully Vinnie came through the operation with flying colours and is now well on the road to recovery. He will soon be looking for his forever home. This week we took in two older cats abandoned with a note asking for someone to help them. Tragically one of the cats was too ill to help and we had to make the heart breaking decision to end his suffering. The branch are working hard with the vets to help the other cat and we are hoping it is not too late to save her.
We would urge anyone who is thinking of getting a pet not only to
think about the cost of food, flea and worm treatment but also the cost
of any medical treatment. Having a pet is very rewarding but, like us,
animals can become ill or have accidents at any time and this does need
to be a factor when considering becoming a pet owner. Pet insurance is
an option and should be considered.
If you could offer Vinnie or any of our cats a loving and secure home then please get in touch on 07599087527.
Can you crochet or knit? We have run out of blankets for our foster cats and kittens to sleep on, these lovely blankets (pictured) were donated and our cats love them. When a cat or kitten is adopted we like to send them to their new home with their comfort blanket. They are especially good for kittens to take out with the smell of their mother and siblings on but it's nice if all our cats can go out with a comfort blanket.
If you are able to make and donate any blankets it would be much
appreciated. The ideal size is 50cm square, our cats don't mind what
colour or pattern they are just that they are nice and comfy and warm to
sleep on. Any donations would be gratefully accepted and can be left at
Petty Motors, Chapel Street, Goole.
