Queenie (female) Home Offered

Hi all,

My name is Queenie. I was dumped in a Gym bag tied up with string at a bus stop. It was a very cold and windy night and I was very scared. But luckily one of the fosters from Cats Friends Rescue happened to find me. She took me home and I am now enjoying being in my foster home. I am a little underweight but not for long with all the yummy food I am getting from my foster Mom and Dad.

I am around 1 year old. I am little nervous of other cats at the moment. I think I would like a home where I am the only cat. I might get on with an older laid back cat. I am very loving and cuddly. I really like to give kisses too.

Lucky

Hi All!!!My name is Lucky. A year ago I was wondering around with very little food, really sick and underweight. I noticed this big ginger cat and he was really happy looking. So me being the clever Cat I was I decided to follow him home. Well epic decision on my part as the ginger cat whose name is Milo belonged to a volunteer for Cats Friends Rescue called Lisa. She gave me some food and another mad girl gave me a tablet for worms and we went to the vets.The vet gave me an operation and I didn’t want wander off anymore. But he also did some tests and it turned out I was sick with something called FELV and FIV. So I became a long term foster for Cats Friends Rescue.I am soooo Lucky!!! I get chicken every night. I get yummy food and have so much to play with. I am totally indoors now as the vet said it’s too keep me and other cats safe as I like to scrap sometimes. It’s a boy thing. I have put on so much weight now and it’s still going on. But the Vet says is fine because I am not well and do not have the same long life that other cats can have. So he says once I am happy for what time I have that’s what matters. I love food sooooooooooo much. I am really spoilt by my lovely foster mom. I have such a great family.The thing is though I have to take a lot of medication as my teeth hurt sometimes and I can’t breathe very well. So the girls said I should tell my story. Maybe some people would like to help me out with my care as I will be here in the rescue as long as I am able to live happily. It won’t be very long but I am so thrilled to have followed Milo home. I got the best foster home ever. I love outdoor royal Canin food and Chicken. I love to play with ribbons. If you would like to help me you can donate to

cfrlucky@gmail.com through paypal. Or you can donate directly to Cats Friend Rescue. You can buy my food or litter. Cats stuff is always good.  Thanks again.  Click on this Button to donate directly to Lucky.


Harry

Hello all,

My name is Harry. I am an older gentleman looking for my forever home. But do not let my age fool you as I am a big kitten at heart. I love to play and run and do all the kitten like stuff. I get on well with other cats too. I also like my creature comforts. I would make a great companion cat to someone. I love to sit with you and have my pets while you watch your programme’s on TV. I had a rough life to begin with as I was abandoned and strayed for a while. So I got in to a few fights and have some war wounds. But all that is behind me. now I happened to meet this nice lady who brought me to the vets got some stuff done to me..not sure what exactly!!!!. But I no longer want to stray or fight and I have turned into a big softie. All I want to do is chill out in my foster home in my nice warm bed.

P.S I love ham and chicken.

What should I do if I come across a stray cat??

We would like to offer some advice regarding stray cats.

If you do come across a stray cat. Think twice before you think it needs to be removed or rescued. There is no point in taking away a feral or semi feral or friendly stray cat from a location and contacting a rescue to help afterwards. Mind you it would be no easy task removing a feral cat.

Check first the cat is ear tipped. Also check is the cat healthy looking and not skin and bone. Feral cats can be underweight. Is the cat visibly stressed or disorientated? If not than maybe return the next day to see if the cat is still around. Leave some food for the cat in a discreet location as not to upset people in the neighbourhood. Call rescues based in the location and ask them are they managing a colony in the area with a description of the cat. Take a photo of the cat and post on facebook pages related to cats. Asking about the cat. This is helpful to do first before you decide to remove the cat.

Contact a rescue for advice before you do anything like removing a cat. There is no where for these cats to go. And if they are being managed in a colony or have a caretaker you are going to make things much worse for these cats. Taking these steps first is much more helpful to the Cat.

Having said that if the cat is injured and needs help and you want to help them the first port of call is to bring the cat to a vet. If you come a across a small kitten also that is different. But check for mammy around too. She may just have gone off for food. But do always think first before jumping in. We know people are coming from a very good place in wanting to help cats. But removing a cat or kitten and hoping when you get home that a rescue will take it is a huge risk to take as rescues are full and the cats life just became a whole lot more stressful being relocated. Its not rescuing a cat if you take it away with the idea a rescue will take it. If a rescue can not take them what than? Just some food for thought. Feral cats have no where to go so lets try and manage them where they are. Do what we can for them where they are. Do not take a cat home unless you are willing to foster it. eric

Mission

Volunteering

General information

We are always looking for volunteers in the following areas:

Fostering
Fundraising
Home-checks
Phone-line
Transport

Please contact at info@catsfriendsrescue.com if you wish to come join us.

Advertising on our site

We offer a certain amount of advertising on our site to pet shops, Catteries or any other cat related business. Please contact info@catsfriendsrescue.com for more info.

It is the policy of Cats Friends Rescue that once you are home approved for the Cat or kitten you wish to adopt, the adoption fee must then be paid. We will not hang on to cats or kittens unless the fee has been paid. The reason for this is we have reserved cats for people for a couple of weeks and then they have changed their mind which has meant our lovely Cats have missed out on other homes.

The adoption fees range from €65 to €85.

Please Note Adoption fees are non-refundable, as they go immediately towards vet bills, food bills, and neutering for needy cats and kittens who’s lives we are trying to save.

Microchip your cat today!!

We really want to encourage people to microchip their cats. If your cat goes missing and you don’t find them and she ends up in a rescue she will be returned to you if you have micro chipped her.

Or if someone finds your cat and starts looking after them and brings it to the vet your cat can be returned to you. As the vet will scan the cat. Your details will be on the chip.

If you don’t microchip and your cat ends up with us and is rehomed. There is not comeback. You have no proof it’s your cat. So many cats are the same colour, age etc. The best proof is microchip and registered with your vet. You must register as well as microchip. We get so many cats micro chipped and not registered. What’s the point? Paying for the chipping but don’t log on to register it with Fido. Be smart about your cat. If you dont know how to register ask for help. Your vet will tell you or we are happy to guide you.

If your cat is rehomed by a rescue and you don’t bother to microchip, there is no way to get them back. In rare cases yes but most of the time no!!

So if you LOVE your Cat and want them to get back to you no matter what or how long, microchip her or him today. Micro chipping is loving your cat and being responsible. It is down to basically do you love your cat enough to want them back if they go missing. It is as important as neutering or spaying your cat if they go outdoors.

Re foster and rehoming

Just to let people know due to lack of funding we are limiting our fostering to only a few homes for now. All fosters are full so we will not be offering any fostering in the near future. We will still be helping with TNR etc. If you need help with rehoming your cats please send a cat profile to info@catsfriendsrescue.com and we will put it up on the website. As we are a small rescue we cannot support large numbers of cats anymore with out funding. so we need to downsize for the moment. We are just not getting the help we need to sustain the work we do sadly. Thank you for all your help.

We need Heroes!!!

“I can’t foster I would get too attached and it would be too hard to let them go.”

The above statement is something we hear a lot. This is something that I understand and have experienced too. It is not easy to form a bond and let go. I know there are many amazing potential fosters out there who would love to take on a cat, but hold back due to this worry. We are desperate for fostering so I ask you to consider the following when you decide fostering is too hard.

Please note the kittens in this photo have all found homes.
