Iris the cat is very happy in her new home

Submitted by Steve on 22:23, 17th Nov, 2016 | 0

We always love to hear from owners of adopted animals from the GSPCA and last week we waved Iris the cat off to her new home.

Iris was found as a stray with a few minor health issues including fleas and a little fur missing and sadly with no microchip and despite trying to find an owner she wasn't claimed so was placed up for rehoming.

With all stray animals under Guernsey law we have to care for them for a period of 21 days to give an owner time to come forward and do what we can to reunite them.

National Black Cat Day - could you help one of our many black cats find its lucky forever home this Halloween

Submitted by Steve on 08:54, 27th Oct, 2016 | 0

Black cats have had a mixed reaction for centuries with many people believing them a bad omen even in 2016.

Despite each year at the GSPCA and many other charities promoting black cats in need of homes they continue to be the main colour of cat that is often skipped by when new adoptees are looking to adopt a cat.

Today is National Black Cat Day, a day to raise awareness of the many black and white cats waiting for homes in rehoming centres.

FABULOUS NEWS - Bob the diabetic cat will spend this Christmas in a loving new home

Submitted by Steve on 20:10, 17th Oct, 2016 | 0

The team at the GSPCA are overjoyed to report that on Saturday Bob the diabetic cat was waved off by staff and volunteers to his forever home.

Nearly a year ago Bob was found as a very poorly grumpy stray cat which we never found his original owner.

It wasn't long before he was diagnosed with diabetes and after some time and a lot of tests both his health and temperament improved greatly during his time at the Animal Shelter.

Bob the diabetic cat has an update on his insulin levels - Could you offer him a home or donate to his care

Submitted by Steve on 16:22, 29th Sep, 2016 | 0

Have you met our lovely Bob yet?

Bob came in as a very grumpy, sick stray cat last year but we quickly found he was only grumpy as he wasn't well.

After a series of tests with help from the vets we found Bob was diabetic and had to go on a special diet and insulin injections twice a day.

A year later and he is much improved and this week his medication was reduced as he is so stable.

Louis the cat loving his new home

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.

Fairy tale as longest stay cat 'Monkey' finds a loving new home

Submitted by Steve on 16:33, 11th Jul, 2016 | 0

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.

Kit Kats major operation - could you help this very poorly cat

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.

Finding each animal a loving new home can often prove challenging as the hundreds in need that come through the doors may well have health issues, behaviour problems or even brought through no fault of their own.

From strays to road traffic accidents, lost cats to cats with welfare issues we help over a 1000 cats each year and help between 100 and 200 find a new home.

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.
