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.

Laura Stagg said “We recently adopted Durand the cat from the GSPCA and we thought you might like to know how he is getting on as it seemed like he was very well loved there!”

“He's settling in really well and loves his cuddles, food, toys and blankets.”

“He's especially fond of curling up on the sofa with his choice of fluffy blanket which he loves to knead.”

“He also likes hiding in the bed and sneaking into boxes around the house.”

“We're very grateful that we had the chance to adopt Durand as he has already bought a lot of happiness to our lives and we know he will continue to do so.”

“We'd like to thank the GSPCA for making the process so smooth and easy for us, especially Ashley and Anna who care so much about finding the right home for the cats.”

“We've attached some photos of Durand settling in to his new home.”

“I'm sure he'd love to come back for a stay whenever we happen to go on holiday.”

“Many thanks.”

Anna Paint Senior Animal Care Assistant said “Durand was very scared and quite scabby when he first arrived as a stray.”

“After weeks of care and treatment he improved and it was wonderful when we found him a loving new home last month.”

“We have many older cats at the GSPCA in need of a new home from those with health issues to those looking for farm or stable type homes.”

“You can see many of the cats in need of homes on the website or you can visit them between 11am and 430pm each day.”

“Dot is our longest stay cat in need of a home at 8 years old.”

“He is a very special boy who has been through quite a lot in his life.”

“This wonderful man is now ready for a new home and requires a quiet house as an only pet with no other animals or children.”

“Dot is very worried by men so will need a home with females only, he will take time to settle into a new environment so any new owner will need to be patient with him and give him the time that he needs.”

“He has come a long way since he first came in but he can still take time to trust new people.”

“We would love to hear any interested in Dot and we are happy to discuss his needs fully with any new potential owner.”

Ashleigh Le Page Animal Care Assistant said “We love to hear how pets adopted from the Shelter are getting on.”

“Durand was one of many stray cats we helped last year and it is so nice to hear how well he is doing.”

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “Durand arrived at the Shelter last August as a stray cat.”

“As with all strays we tried to find his owner but with no microchip or anyone looking for him after 21 days he became the responsibility of the GSPCA.”

“After a lot of vet care and TLC with the team he was placed up for adoption.”

“It was wonderful to hear from his owners last week who adopted him in January.”

“Lewis and Laura kindly sent through an update and lots of pictures and he certainly looks over the moon in his new home.”

“We have lots of other adult cats in need of homes and if you can’t adopt one then sponsoring a cat pen is a great way to support those in our care.”
