Roger used to live on the streets and was not neutered and not microchipped. Luckily, he was rescued by Stokey Cats & Dogs in the winter and he has now been neutered, microchipped and vet treated. He is healthy and he is a young cat, about 1 year old or 1.5. As he had a lonely start in life, he is very shy and timid.
Roger has been living in a kind volunteer's temporary foster home since he was rescued in December. The volunteer has been working wonders with him in the last 5 months to show him gradually what it's like to have a loving home where he doesn't have to worry any more. He is still defensive and a bit hissy/shy, but he doesn't run away any more, doesn't hide when approached. It took him 5 months to come this far. It's actually an amazing achievement! He has also put on weight, has been enjoying his regular meals and his coat is extra luxurious now.
Roger is looking for a home he can call his own. He doesn't allow yet to be stroked or picked up, but he will follow you or sit next to you in the room while you watch TV. He would love his home to be with adults only. If you offer a home to a cat like Roger, it's wonderful to see a young cat like him gradually become more relaxed and trusting and thrive in a loving home.
If you are interested in offering Roger a permanent home, please email firstname.lastname@example.org as they would love to hear from you! Please note home checks apply.
Stokey Cats and Dogs are a local volunteer group who rescue local cats. It's vital that cats are neutered as there are so many homeless cats. They rescue cats and get them neutered, microchipped and rehomed. They desperately need and welcome funds donated by the community - you can donate via paypal to email@example.com. If you prefer to pay directly towards Stokey's vet fees at the Celia Hammond vet clinic you can call 0207 474 8811 and say that you wish to make a payment to Stokey Cats & Dogs vet bill. Stokey also have a Wish List on Amazon and have a Stokey Cats and Dogs Facebook group where you can read all the latest news on their rescue cats.
I post regularly here in respect of Stokey cats needing homes and photos.
If you can't offer a permanent home to a cat, Stokey also urgently need more fosterers - which means providing a temporary home for a cat until a permanent home is found. You don't need to have a garden to foster. If more people foster, Stokey will be able to help more homeless cats. Short term or long term fosterers are always needed. Can anyone help? Most of Stokey's rescue cats in need of a temporary foster home come from the streets. Stokey get them neutered, microchipped, treated for fleas and worms before they go to their foster homes. All veterinary bills are covered by Stokey, so foster carers don't have to worry about this aspect of looking after a cat temporarily. Stokey always provide a foster starter kit which includes a litter tray, cat litter, food bowls, blanket or a basket to sleep, and food). If you are interested in fostering please get in touch urgently via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will send you a foster application form.
