    I think that is an oldish photo, he wouldn’t let me anywhere near as close as that but what I could see of him wasn’t looking good.

    That poor boy. Some people can be so cruel.
    My Jessie was left to fend for herself (as a kitten) while her family went away on holiday

    Today’s cat crush is little Artemis, as friendly as she is beautiful but missing a hind leg so limited mobility.
    I nearly left the centre clutching two little hand rears. They were brought in after the mother cat was killed in RTA. Only a week old they will need feeding every 2 hours if they are to survive.

    She is a really pretty soft little thing.

    7 six week old kittens found abandoned in Enfield. Badly dehydrated, covered in faeces and maggots. Sadly one little darling didn’t survive but the others are now safe at SP who can hopefully bring them round.
    The rescue isn’t just full, not even just overflowing, they really are at crisis point with 90 kittens now in their care.
    Sadly these little ones will not be easy to home because of their colour.

    I have been having a terrible time trying to trap two boys in Tottenham, an area where over 20 cats were removed from the colony.
    Other cats keep popping up on our radar, one tortie who gave birth before we could trap her so now we feed and wait till she brings the kittens to us. Meanwhile this poor chap was spotted last night, emaciated and bald from flea allergy. I’ve called him Parker and he is now priority to trap and get to rescue.
    These street cats cost the rescue an absolute fortune in medical bills and are not always easy to find homes for but Scratching Post finds space and care for them all.

    It wasn’t me that took the pictures unfortunately. I’ve been out looking and leafleting again this morning but no further sightings as yet

    Hooray! This poor lad is now safe and sound at Scratching Post rescue. I had an ‘interesting’ day and evening meeting the locals and after a tip off from the local wizard ( I kid you not) I managed to locate Parker and get him into our care.
