Marnie the newest little one into our care has been for her vet check. The vet is happy with everything, shes a healthy cat but we do have one small problem....the vet has stated she is potentially pregnant and is over 5 weeks if she is based on what could be seen during her examination.
So for now she has been wormed, we have held off with the flea treatment as we dont want to overdo the chemicals if she is pregnant just to be safe. There are no signs of fleas anyway which is good!
From here we will continue to keep an eye on her, assess her as things progress. This means Marnie, although available for rehoming, will be with us for the next 15 weeks roughly, maybe more, to ensure she has a good delivery and is fully treated alongside her kittens.
We will not be taking notes of interest for any kittens at this moment in time as we have a waiting list of people who have been waiting for a number of months to a year for a kitten from our rescue.Those on our waiting list will have first refusal of adoption.
For now our aim is to keep Marnie as comfortable as possible and raise funds to help pay for all the treatment both she, and any kittens she has, will require.
We would like to thank everyone who helped by donating towards us buying a scanner for Jenna
Below is a list of everything bought with the funds donated, alongside their prices and why we have these items.
This is our rescue kit! Each volunteer is supposed to carry this in the boot of their car so they are always available to help a cat in need! This is an important piece of kit for us to be able to do our job effectively, alongside rehabilitating and rehoming cats we pick up along the way.

Here is the latest cat into our care enjoying some catnip!
Marnie came into care with us just 2 short days ago after being abandoned by her previous owner. Thankfully a neighbour was able to help us secure this wee girl and get her to safety. She will be treated and assessed while with us and will find a loving new home
Taking a look through our posts, it seems the last time this site was used was in 2018! Although we have taken in and rehomed cats in that time, thankfully the cats we have helped havent been in care for long, infact all cats were rehomed within a week of listing them on our Facebook page looking for homes!
All of the cats are in loving homes with owners who spoil them which is all we can really ask for of any cats we rehome.
So where have we been?
Then truth is, the rescue has struggled greatly of recent. We now have only 1 foster left within the team as all fosters and members of our team have had issues, work commitments, family commitments, etc that took precedence over fostering. So we are now looking at taking on new fosters and hopefully getting back to doing what we do best - helping cats on to a better life.
If you think you could potentially foster, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to ask any questions you may have,
Although we arent fully back, we hope this new change and update to the site will help gear us all forward.
Well we are happy to announce that Chika, Molly, Yuki and her babies, Pebbles and her 4 babies, Leo, Ollie and Felix all found amazing new homes!!
We havent been very active here on thee website as we only have access via mobile at the moment. To keep updated with all of the kitties in care, please refer to our facebook page: http://facebook.com/tigerlilyfelinerescue
