Blue was a farm cat brought in 15 years ago with his sister. He was quite fierce and has only recently become approachable. Blue is often to be found lying in the sun. He is quite a coward and hides from the other cats. Can be stroked while he is eating, otherwise he runs away.
Apart from being a sun worshipper, he can also be caught with his head in a bag of food, helping himself. In the image bottom right, he has dropped a biscuit somewhere on the floor.
Blue suffers from fits. He is loved by one-and-all.
Coco arrived in the summer of 2016. She was relinquished by her owner, who was taken into care. Within a day of her arrival it became clear that Coco was ill. On day two, she was taken to the vet, who suspected diabetes. Day three saw her returned to the vet, where diabetes was confirmed. Coco was prescribed insulin, administered twice a day by injection. Subsequently, Coco spent many long days at the veterinary surgery, in an attempt to find the right dosage of insulin. She is responding well to the treatment, having gained weight, and the diabetes appears to be under control. Coco is very sweet-natured and does not complain at all during any of the visits to the vet. She loves roast chicken, which her carers cook for her. Without fail, she jumps into her pen to wait by her empty bowl, whenever anyone arrives.
NT turned up in the back garden about three years ago. We could not get near him at first. Gradually he came closer and closer and we managed to catch him and have him neutered. With time, he became braver until, one day, he took the decision to move in permanently. He can be a bit bossy but is easily told off. He loves to hunt and visits various local gardens in search of extra food. He is affectionate with everyone, often to be seen lounging in the garden, waiting for someone to arrive with more food. One of life’s charmers.
Hattie was brought to us by some people who had found her in a terrible state. She was very thin and dirty. She was taken to the vet and the vet said that she was very old. She may be old and thin, but she enjoys life and has a large appetite. She has gained some weight. Some days she just wants to stay in and sleep by the heater, but on sunny days she frolics around the garden like a kitten. She is enjoying the twilight years of her life.
Below we feature three cats that live on the Rescue premises. Be it due to a medical condition or age, two of these cats were unwanted. The third cat found his own way to the Rescue and moved in. These cats are free to roam the garden during the day and have warm, safe beds at night.
Thanks to your donations, Avon Cat Rescue has been able to provide these cats with the extra care they need, providing them with security, safety and love.
