In July 2022, Yorkshire Cat Rescue received a grant of £16,480 towards vet bills to help cats like Hob. The rescue is based from its centre in Keighley but also uses foster homes. They provide all cats in their care with food, love, shelter and the necessary veterinary care until they find a forever loving home.
They rehome over 350 cats a year and have provided an update on Hob:
“Hob is currently in foster care at Yorkshire Cat Rescue and has cerebellar hypoplasia. This is caused when part of the brain fails to develop properly.
We did have quality of life discussions at one point, but Hob is determined and is making progress everyday (even if his legs won’t always move in the right direction).
He has Yorkshire’s biggest purr, and a very great deal to say for himself.”
