Cheshire Cats Rescue Case Study

Cheshire Cats Rescue, a small, volunteer-run rescue, cares for cats and kittens from a network of foster homes. It also works to reduce the stray cat population through the trapping and neutering of feral cats.

In August 2022, it received a grant of £9,500 towards the cost of neutering the feral cats and the general vet bills of its other cats. This has helped cats like Casper, Jasper and Sooty.

Casper, Jasper and Sooty were three feral 4-month-old kittens who were part of a neutering programme. They were trapped, neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and waited in our shelter for their return back to the site as feral older kittens. At the time, in January 2023, the weather was extremely cold and so the intention was to hold them where they had shelter, food and would be managed and cared for until it was milder and they could be returned to the site,

However, whilst in hold, Liz spent a lot of time with them and started to see a glimmer of softening, and it was decided to work on them further to see if they could be rehomed to a domestic home. A wonderful and very understanding adopter was found who agreed to adopt all three siblings together. From this point, they have thrived in their new domestic life and become much-loved family members.

“We are so happy that they have had this opportunity of a domestic and comfortable life. Their adopter sends us regular updates and photos of how they are doing. They all remain very close, are bonded and are very happy.” 

Donate here to support our grant programme so we can continue helping animals in need.
