FERAL CATS, RESCUES & OTHERS 1 SEP 2020

Harry with Zoey

Today, as I am writing this article it is 1st September which is not only Spring Day but also GINGER CAT APPRECIATION DAY and here are some of the ginger cats we have at the Shelter.  The majority of ginger cats are male and apart from your Moggies, gingers appear in all the different breeds such as Persians, Munchkins, Manx and American and European Shorthairs and so on.

Gingers tend to be adventurous, courageous, playful but also independent and generally love their food. 

On the photos we have Ginger the feral cat who raised enough funds to build a further 3 cabanas/enclosures. He is the cat who was caught in a snare in Glenferness and it took 25 days of trying to trap him before we could get him out of the snare which was wrapped around his body. He and his best friend Callie have their own cabana.

Then we have FIV positive Harry, who appeared on the doorstep of the Cattery 26 December 2018 with a huge saucer sized wound, which, much to the amazement of the Vets totally healed and he now lives in the bedroom of the farmhouse.

Then Mojo our long-haired handsome boy, still a teenager and a work in progress as still very skittish but food wins him over.

Mojo
Uriel

Cup-cake again a teenager, runs free at the shelter, tho’ locked up at night.
Sunshine, still a kitten but full of on-going snuffles, such a playful cat and full of beans.
And last, Uriel our cat with FeLV, who just loves attention and for whom we need to build a cabana as he needs more space

Adoptions: Approved adoption applications and home-checks apply.
Our adoption fee of R850 covers 1st and 2nd vacs. as well as rabies, deworming, deflea, and sterilization when done by one of our nominated Vets.

FERAL CATS, RESCUES & OTHERS 26 AUGUST 2020

Winter’s operation took place with the Vet in Lonehill on Friday. More of the benign mass beneath the tongue was removed as well as 3 molars which were causing her problems and then a small section of skin beneath the eye was cut away so that the lower eye lid was no longer inverted causing irritation. So far it has been a success though being FIV positive only time will tell but for the moment she is eating well and far more active than previous.. Hopefully a new lease on life and she so deserves it. Thanks again to our anonymous donor for paying for this procedure.

Now we have Pablo, rescued only a few days ago, who can barely walk and is skin and bone. From X-rays we can see he has a dislocated elbow but being an old injury he needs to see a specialist orthopaedic surgeon and more than likely have an operation. We are in the process of setting up appointments and will need to raise funds to proceed further

Then we have an ‘after’ photo of Toffee whose before photo was in our newsletter of 12 August where by mistake we showed two of the same ‘before’ photos and now, hereto, the ‘after’ photo taken a couple of days ago.

Also in the photo is one of our rescue miniature horses who may potentially be adopted.

Welcome!

Welcome!

There are some wonderful people in Lonehill who, on a completely volunteer basis, take care of healthy populations of feral cats, bunnies, goats, dogs etc.  They sometimes share their tales with the Lonehill Community on this Lonehill Animal Welfare News website as they depend on the public for support, donations, volunteering and sharing in their good and not so good news sometimes.
If you have any articles and photos about animal welfare to share with the Lonehill Community, you can contact the webmaster to submit such articles and photos by Tuesday at 12:00 noon.  In the LRA newsletter a link is published weekly to this independent website.  Articles can be any length and photos any size.
