The branch has a number of cats with various medical or behavioural issues in care at the moment. This obviously means they have to be with us for longer than usual. We have also had quite a few more ‘mature’, senior kitizens, too. These often take more time than usual to home as people are not quite as keen to take on an older cat. This is a shame, as they make wonderful companions and deserve to live out their final years with love and comfort. Whatever their issues, we will take the time and consideration it needs to find them all the most suitable home for each of them.
Cat Care: Cats, unlike dogs do not have a 'sweet tooth'. Most mammals experience the taste of sugar as pleasant, but domestic cats and other felines are indifferent to sweets as their taste receptors can’t detect sugar. Cat owners may claim that their beloved pets love ice cream and chocolate, but it’s the fat that cats enjoy. In fact, chocolate can be toxic to cats as it contains a chemical compound called theobromine which is toxic for cats and dogs. It acts as a stimulant to increase their heart rate and a diuretic to increase the loss of their bodily fluids, both of which can prove fatal. So, another good excuse to keep those Easter eggs for yourself and well away from your curious feline.
Take a look at the information below to avoid other dangers to your feline friends.
