Submitted by Steve on 16:24, 12th Sep, 2016 | 0

On the 6th October last year a very large tabby cat called Louis arrived at the GSPCA as his owner could no longer look after him.

Louis is a very handsome chap and was a 2 year old male cat that sadly suffered with a form of asthma and was on some medication each day when he first arrived.

When Louis first joined us at the GSPCA he was very timid and nervous but as he got to know the team at the GSPCA hr improved each day and grew more confident and friendly.

The team at the GSPCA were over joyed recently when the longest stay cat who is actually diabetic found her forever home.

Staff and volunteers all loved 'Monkey' a female tortie cat that arrived at the Animal Shelter in May 2015 after her owner could no longer care for her.

Whilst at the GSPCA we discovered she was in fact diabetic and it took many months to get her treatment and diet to the right levels.

Monkey has a loving and wonderful kind nature although she is on a special diet and requires injecting twice a day.

Submitted by Steve on 11:27, 8th May, 2016 | 0

On the 23rd March of this year a very poorly sweet stray cat was brought into the GSPCA after being found wandering into someones kitchen near Les Genats Estate.

As with all strays under the Guernsey Animal Welfare Ordinance 2012 we held the 7 year old tabby for 21 days but sadly due to no microchiip, tag or lost report we were unable to find the owner of what we found to be a very sick cat.

Kit Kat as he has been fondly named is one of the friendliest cats we have at the GSPCA but sadly has a number of health issues.

Some cats have health issues or behaviour problems and can be with us for many months with one cat taking over 2 years before a loving new home was found.


Jubilation's for Jubilee who is now named Bilee and in a loving new home

Submitted by Steve on 15:20, 1st Apr, 2016 | 0

Last May an injured long haired black and white cat was rescued and brought into the GSPCA on the Liberation weekend.

Found near Castel Hospital we named the cat Jubilee who had an awful bite wound and eye injury which was not easiy cured.  He needed many months of care and vet treatment and as no owner came forward after some months when the 3 year old cat was healthy enough he was put up for rehoming.

He was very difficult to handle at first and with his injuries meaning regular treatments it took sometime before he would trust the team.

Cats have a 1 in 33 chance on Guernsey roads - could you help us with our online survey?

Submitted by Steve on 12:44, 10th Nov, 2015 | 0

Every year the GSPCA are called out to and help between 200 and 300 cats that are injured or killed on the road every year.

During the darker winter months the numbers are at their highest and in just one evening recently 4 cats were brought in to the Shelter between the hours of 10pm and 4am that were killed on our roads.

Over many years the worries for cats on busy roads has always been a real concern.  However the GSPCA as have many other rescues noticed that the smaller roads and lanes are often a greater risk and cause of cats being hit by moving vehicles.

Last week we highlighted the challenges we and other rescues face trying to rehome black cats.

Yesterday 'Sooty' a 5 year old male black cat managed to find a wonderful forever home and staff waved him off with his wonderful new owner.

We have a waiting list for new owners looking for kittens, but often struggle finding the older cats a new home especially if they are black with over half the cats either black or black and white at the GSPCA.

Helen Holems GSPCA staff member said "It was lovely to see Sooty off to his forever home yesterday."
