Submitted by Steve on 11:41, 8th May, 2018 | 0

Earlier this year Malcom a lovely 5 year old cat went to his forever home.

We are extremely pleased to report that he is doing very well and settled well into his loving new home.

His new owner Jacqueline said “‘From the very first day Malcom arrived he has made himself at home.”

“He has several places at home where he likes to sleep and all are up high.”

“In this last week he has started going outside and is returning home no problem.”

He still can nip but this is mostly when he is playing, no injuries have been caused!”

Durand was found as a scabby stray cat and is now happy, well and loving his new home

Submitted by Steve on 17:50, 27th Feb, 2018 | 0

Last year the GSPCA helped a poorly, nervous stray cat that was covered in scabs.

As no owner could be found Durand as he was named was cared for and treated by the team at the GSPCA.

Durand was quite nervous when he first arrived but with a lot of TLC and vet treatment he improved daily.

Last month Durand finally found his forever home and we have recently had a message from new owners Lewis and Laura to hear how well he is doing.

Catrina the cat a year on from near death now enjoying a loving new home

Submitted by Steve on 17:34, 18th Jan, 2018 | 0

Do remember Catrina the cat who nearly died last year?

She was found having been hit by a car on a cold, dark, wet evening with multiple injuries, very thin and weak.

It took many months for Catrina to get back to health which included operations, medication and a lot of TLC.

Just before Christmas Catrina was given the okay to be rehomed by the vet and it didn’t take long to find her a wonderful new family.

We’ve just heard from Catrina’s new mum and wanted to share the great news.

GSPCA Animal Advent Calendar Day 9 - Could you buy a cat a window for Christmas to help Shelter them from the wet cold weather

Submitted by Steve on 11:38, 9th Dec, 2017 | 0

With the driving wind and rain recently we are asking for your help to gift the cats a little something to keep them dry when the weather is really bad.

We have been trailing perspex clear sheets on some of the cats pens with great success.  Each cat pen has an outside section and we have found that hanging the perspex panels on the mesh the cats still have a lovely view and plenty of fresh air while keeping the worst of the weather out.

After nearly a year of veterinary care Catrina who was hit by a car is in need of a home at the GSPCA

Submitted by Steve on 13:26, 23rd Nov, 2017 | 0

Around Christmas time two of our wardens where called to a cat that had been hit by a car and collapsed but still alive

The little cat was rushed to Isabelle vets where once she had been examined it was found that she had totally de gloved her tail, had a serious fractured pelvis, some internal bleeding and was a very poorly cat indeed.

However this little girl who has been named Catrina was prepared to fight and had her tail amputated that night along with other veterinary care.
