Hi my name is Shelly. I run a small cat rescue from my home and I'm completely self funded and non profit making. And we are currently getting no donations I have taken it upon my self for many years to rescue unwanted and abandoned cats and kittens in the Derbyshire area UK. and have found a lot of them loving forever homes. Just lately i have been getting calls from a local vets asking if i can take in cats that have come to them as strays. One of those cats who came to us on July 17, 2009 is a Persian female we have named Lady believed to be around 16 - 18yrs old who was handed in as a stray and is on 2.4mg Fortekor tablet every day for the rest of her life however long that may be. And requires Hills or Royal Canin Renal veterinary diet. And for this reason is unable to be re homed and i myself think it unfair to shunt her around any more due to her age. Therefore i am looking for sponsorship or donations for this old lady so i can give her the best care possible. She was very underweight and could barely stand when she came to us and had to have all her fur shaved off because it was so badly matted. Her fur is now growing back and she can climb the stairs to her night time bed. I am quite willing to give her sponsors regular updates and progress reports. A picture of Lady and her story can be found Login Please also feel free to join and post links to your sites and we have added a member group for Breeders all welcome. I am also happy to give any more information required. Both Lady and myself would be very grateful of any help offered. I can be contacted at Purrrrfect@the-kats-whiskers.co.uk Thank you. Lots of Purrrs & Hugz. a donate button can be found at... The-Kats-Whiskers-Welcome Page We are getting more and more calls to take cats. but just don't have the funds to take them because we are getting no donations. We seem to have quite a few hard to home cats so they are with us for quite a while. People go for younger cats and kittens and prettier colours and we are left with black, black/white and ages from 1 - 3yrs olds up to 7yrs old. We have also just taken in another 15yr old as an emergancy. And 2 young cats that were abandoned when thier previous owner emigrated to spain. 1 of wich has lost some of her fur due to stress. they were at a vets for 8 days before we took them in. Please help if you can however small every little helps. Thank you.
