Can you contribute towards Squeaks special medication? It is going to cost about £540 a year, please donate now. - Dec 2017

Hi my name is Squeak (KM125 – 17), the beautiful 10 month old tabby boy with my sister who is black. The vets have diagnosed me with an unusual disorder called Diabetes Insipidus, I can’t keep water in my body so I drink a lot of water every day because I produce a lot of urine (don’t worry I always go in a litter tray!) The Cat & Rabbit Rescue Centre give me special medication so I don’t need to drink as much but it costs £45 a month. When my sister and I find a loving new home I will still be looked after by the CRRC vets through the foster care scheme so my adopters won’t need to pay for my medicine. The foster care scheme is the only way special cats like me can get a home sometimes. Can you help donate some money for medication? We want to make sure we have enough money to pay for my medication for the rest of my life, that’s a lot of money which is why I’m asking for a little help. My sister and I are also looking for our forever homes, our original owner gave us up as she had 8 cats and 15 kittens and it was too many. We have been with CRRC since August now which is a long time, and we can be a bit nervous which doesn’t help please call 01243 641409 if you think you could give us a home.

Merry Christmas - Dec 2017

A wonderful day was had by all yesterday at the Rescue Centre. 23 volunteers, 3 staff, 2 Trustees and 1 President (our President Sue Jameson) all came in to help care for the animals on Christmas Morning. The cats had chicken and turkey kindly donated, the rabbits and guinea pigs had a whole range of veg including sprouts and the humans had plenty of biscuits! Thank you so much to everyone who gave up their time on Christmas day and today. We are looking forward to starting rehoming again on the 28th of December and getting hopefully lots of animals out to their new loving homes.
