Happy Cat Update - Twinkle

POSTED BY Sandi Wilson ON Jan 30 2015.

Twinkle came into us a wild kitten and this make her quite cautious and shy around humans for a while. Our volunteers spent time socialising her and she made amazing progress. Last year she was lucky enough to find her forever home! Here is an update on her in her new home!

I had never had my own pet before but I'd been meaning to adopt a cat for quite a while and one Saturday back in August I visited the Trust. It was hard to choose a pet from so many different cats, but Twinkle felt like the right choice and I took her home the following weekend.

Hogan & Jimmi's Happy Ending

POSTED BY Sandi Wilson ON Jan 03 2015.

"Just to let you know, the kids are doing just great, they have their own special spots in the sun they love and Hoggie has a toy box although his favourite toy is a clothes peg. Jimmi is a beautiful lady who enjoys a morning cuddle in bed with me before she starts her day."

Kitty's Happy Ending

POSTED BY Sandi Wilson ON Jan 03 2015.

"We adopted Kitty from the Trust earlier this year and she is absolutely wonderful! She likes to be in the middle of the action and when inside will often wait by the stairs so she can see what everyone is doing. She is a real outside cat and loves the garden, has reached a 'compromise' with the chicken (who lives in our tree - long story) - they coexist with minimal drama and can even be in the same garden at the same time now."

Tarryns Tale

POSTED BY Sandi Wilson ON Jun 26 2014.

Tarryn came to us a few days before Guy Fawkes 2006 in a very sorry state. She was skinny, her pads were sore and she was pregnant and it appeared that she was having a kitten and something had gone wrong.  However the truth was more horrific - she had been tortured with fireworks which had caused severe internal damage.

Frazzle

POSTED BY Sandi Wilson ON Mar 01 2012.

Frazzle came in to the Trust two days after Guy Fawkes with a severely damaged eye from a firecracker.  It was also discovered that she was heavily pregnant - which was taking an extra toll on her health. The vet informed us she had a 50/50 chance of survival at best.

When Operation Lucky Began

POSTED BY Sandi Wilson ON May 01 2011.

Lucky was picked up in Otara early June.  People driving their car noticed a tiny kitten just as the car in front went right over him. Luckily he was so small he wasn't harmed, but after seeing how bad his eyes looked they brought him straight to us.

Matlock

POSTED BY Sandi Wilson ON Mar 01 2011.

Poor Matlock was dumped on our doorstep with two other cats. He had such matted fur that his movements were limited and it took 2 hours to groom him and broke a comb in the process and ended up resulting in him needing to be shaved.
