Here comes March, in like a lion, out like a lamb and it’s greetings from Oliver (Ollie to my intimates), resident top cat at SESAW. I’ve beaten Kenny to the keyboard while he snoozes by the Rayburn and make no apology for starting on a sad note.
There are lots of happy moments in animal rescue when people leave with their new pets but some visitors bring tears to our eyes with donations of food no longer needed. This was the case when Jenna contacted us after losing her beloved pet. Harry was a handsome Norwegian forest cat and extremely popular with residents in Nedging Tye. He was always ready for a fuss and a ‘selfie’ with his adoring Public and even passers-by of the non-feline persuasion would stop and pay homage to Harry. We send our heartfelt sympathy to Jenna and all Harry’s admirers; he will be sadly missed.
Whilst I have the ‘talking stick’ let me tell you about Maxine, a five year old spayed female tabby cat in need of a new home. This delightful girl is friendly and loving, but occasionally it might be on her terms. She just needs to find that special (preferably adult) home, or with older children where she would become part of the family.
We also have rescued dogs including a very good looking young Saluki type Lurcher in need of a knowable home. Reggie had a bad start and deserves much better. He is FULL of life and sometimes gives the wrong impression but all he wants is a home of his own and kindness and love. The ideal person is someone who knows the ways of sighthounds and is prepared to put time and effort with further training and encouragement. Reggie has lived with another dog and with the right introduction could do so again, especially a young bitch willing to play and with most dogs he wants to play, loves a game of ball.
Please send an email (include your phone number) or leave a short message on the answerphone 01787 210888 with your name and number (please repeat the number) to register your interest in Maxine or Reggie. Kenneth’s fans will be please to know he can write next time, under the auspices of me, Ollie (the Black) Cat.
