Happy news: Pushkin has returned home. He walked miles to get back to his very relieved owners.
Pushkin escaped from his carrier when leaving the vet in Kingshill, Ware on 11th September. He is a nine-year-old ginger tabby and has been chipped. He may still be in the area.
If you have any information about Pushkin, please contact Cats Whiskers Rescue.
Daisy has been missing from her home in the Hertingfordbury Road area of Hertford since 2nd June. She is one year old, black with a small white patch on the belly, and has some white hairs throughout her coat which can only been seen up close. She was wearing a red collar with a little fish on it, with a large silver ID disc and possibly a bell. She is microchipped.
If you have any information about Daisy, please contact us.
Daisy came into our care recently after her owner died. She was 11 years old, an unspayed house cat.
Daisy had a rough start to her new life in the care of her fosterer Emma. At first, Daisy just hid and would only come out at night to feed. Gradually, she ventured out but was still very scared. After about three weeks, Daisy appeared to have a very intense period of being in heat. We made an appointment at the vets for her to be spayed.
During the pre-op check, she was diagnosed with pyometra. Pyometra is an infection in the uterus and is considered a serious and life threatening condition that must be treated quickly and aggressively. Pyometra is a secondary infection that occurs because of hormonal changes in the female’s reproductive tract.
Marina the vet said she must have been in a lot of pain for a long time. She had never seen such a bad case. Daisy would have had only days to live if this hadn’t been found just in time.
Daisy has now made a full recovery thanks to Marina and the after care she received. Daisy now has a forever home with her fosterers who decided to keep her permanently. Daisy is now a happy, cuddly cat who loves her new life.
We are very grateful to Vets4Pets in Pets at Home Hertford for the excellent treatment Daisy received.
We are also grateful to Support Adoption for Pets from whom we receive regular donations as we are in partnership with Pets at Home. Without their financial support we would be unable to afford to treat cats like Daisy.
Please spay your cat, even if she is a house cat. It could save her life.
Happy news: Quorra and Zaphod have been rehomed.
Zaphod is a sweet, affectionate, goofy cat, approximately 9 years old. He still loves to play like a kitten. He adores being in human company and is always eager for ear scritches and belly rubs. He will (almost) never get tired of your attention!
Zaphod enjoys nothing better than snoozing near (or on) his humans on the sofa with his toy mouse. If he finds you in bed, he may request to join you under the covers! He would do best in a home without small children. He has been neutered, vaccinated, deflead, wormed and microchipped.
Quorra is a sweet, affectionate, timid cat, approximately 9 years old. She loves to sleep, and to be near her humans. She loves to cuddle and will often flop over for a belly rub. But if she sees a piece of string dragged on the ground, she goes on the prowl like a young kitten!
Quorra isn’t a fan of noisy gatherings, but as long as she has somewhere to retreat to (like a quiet bedroom) she will be fine and will come out for cuddles once the party is over. She would do best in a home without small children. She has been spayed, vaccinated, deflead, wormed and microchipped.
We are hoping to rehome him as a pair with his sister, Quorra, but will consider rehoming him on his own if needed.
Zaphod and Quorra are direct rehomes.
We currently have no kittens available. Due to the unusually high demand for cats and kittens for adoption, we may not respond to enquiries unless we have a cat suitable for you. We apologise for any inconvenience.
Happy news: Maisie has been adopted.
Maisie is a very young ex-feral cat, probably less than a year old, who came into our care having given birth to a litter of kittens. She is now coming out of her shell and is friendly, but a bit shy. She is still like a kitten and loves to play. Maisie has a heart murmur and spaying her would be too risky, so she must be kept indoors at all times. She needs a quiet home with owners that can help build her confidence.
