There is good news for one cat following last month's appeal for a home: after a year of waiting, Frankie has at last moved in! Could two other long-term cats be moving soon?
All three were rescued by local charity Animal Accident Rescue Unit, which wants to finally rehome Ginny and Chester – plus numerous others. As Ginny's fosterer highlights: 'Ginny's about 6 years old, loves salmon and craves affection.' Chester's carer explains: 'Chester's about 4 years old, is most friendly, loves company and his food!'
All the charity's cats are "snap" FIV/FeLV blood-tested, for which both are clear – wormed, flea-treated, neutered, micro-chipped, litter trained plus vaccinated. Each new owner must continue the vaccinations.
The charity recommends its cats stay indoors for 6-8 weeks, and are kept in overnight. All adoptions need successful homechecks, with no rehoming on or near busy roads excluding indoor cats.
Entirely reliant on volunteers and donations, the charity urgently needs more FIV cat fosterers – call 0115-9321555 for details. Animal Accident Rescue Unit does not cover healthy strays/unwanted pets, but neglected, injured or vulnerable animals and birds.
