There’s an unusual sight – Kenny still tucked up in bed at lunchtime! Seems the little chap is under the weather leaving the computer clear for me to give you a cat’s eye view of life at SESAW.
Like most animal charities, we’ve had few dogs in since Covid. Those that have arrived are generally very needy, requiring special new homes. Rolo, a Yorkie cross and Nokie, a terrier cross, are not moving on anytime soon. They are great friends but trouble with humans. Both need special homes with someone prepared to give them time and space. An experienced owner will end up with a rewarding relationship with one, or maybe even two, of these dogs if they are the right person.
Some become permanent residents like Bobby, a terrier rescued from death row in a London dog pound. After failing to find his forever home he settled nicely with dear old Maisie, a springer spaniel who loved her life at SESAW despite health problems. Unfortunately we lost her last year but Bobby has a new long term pal. Bruno is a terrier chihuahua cross, people say he’s a bigger version of Kenny which I can confirm. That pesky dog likes to sleep in the airing cupboard but he doesn’t dare challenge me if I get there first!
Which reminds me, time to see if Little Lord Fauntleroy is up and about. Yes, as I approach the kitchen I can hear him yapping to greet me. Ollie (the Black) Cat.
