Submitted by Steve on 13:26, 1st Dec, 2017 | 0

On Wednesday evening just after 1130pm a black cat was caught in a cat trap in a property car park in St Peter Port.

The cat which had been seen many times in the area over a 2 month period appeared thin and extremely nervous and appeared to be living in the car park which raised concerns over whether it had an owner.

The GSPCA after some advice lent a trap to catch the cat and with 24 hours the cat was caught and brought up to the Shelter where the black feline has been named 'Tomsie'.

Stan may be safe at the GSPCA but it sounds like she is not the only Stick Insect in Guernsey

Submitted by Steve on 01:08, 10th Nov, 2016 | 0

Last month we had rescued what we thought was a stray stick insect found in the Villocq area of Castel.

We thought this to be the first stray stick insect we have had on record at the GSPCA and we put out an appeal for anyone who has lost their pet insect to get in touch.

As a result of the appeal we have had contact with those living in the area to say that over the last three years they have spotted the stick insects both in their garden and home of which the picture is one cheeky lady that was spotted in a bedroom in the Villocq area.

Yesterday a stray yellow and white female budgie was found on Collings Road and is now at the GSPCA.

Each year we help dozens of stray pet parakeets, parrots and finches at the GSPCA.

We now have two stray budgies in our care as just over a week ago a blue stray budgie was found on Ruette De Saumarez.

Sadly we rarely find the owners of the smaller birds and we are currently appealing for any information if you know of anyone that has lost a stray budgie.
