Happy Ending – Spotty

We met Spotty, when he was 9, during an outreach. Conditions were poor, but with education and medical assistance, life improved for the furkids there. Sadly, for some things, we were too late. Spotty already had a scar from an embedded collar from being chained 24/7. In October 2015, he came to our shelter with a broken leg and we vowed to give him a better retirement. 2 ½ years passed.

On 31 January he collapsed, he was treated and later that evening he went into shock and was rushed to the emergency vet. It looked like our Spotty had given up, but that night after looking into his eyes, we could not let him go. In our hearts, we knew this was not the end. Tests revealed that he had severe arthritis of the spine and he was placed on chronic pain medication. On 27 May 2017 Spotty woke up with a badly swollen face a tooth abscess caused severe infection in his mouth and nose. He was placed on treatment and 5 teeth were removed when it was safe. X-rays further revealed a slightly enlarged heart, but luckily no heart murmur.

Enough was enough! On 11 June 2017, my newly adopted son and I, started the next chapter in our lives. Spotty settled in well. Even though he has had a hard life, he has so much love in his heart and starts each day with a smile on his face. Spotty and my wish is that you visit the shelter. Don’t pass by the old, the special needs, the ordinary and the ones with limbs missing. They all have hearts of gold and pure souls. You will never regret bringing a special furkid home! Give a less adoptable furkid a chance! Who knows, you might just be the proud mom or dad of an extraordinary furkid too!

P.S. Why an old sick deaf dog of 12 ½ years old? Why not a puppy? If you adopt a puppy, it is for life. If you adopt a golden oldie, it is also for life! No difference. For better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part. …and then one day, forever and ever together beyond the rainbow bridge.


Pleas & Needs

We have another de-worming and anti-flea and tick session coming up for our fur-friends at Lucky Lucy and would appreciate your help in getting them the treatments they need. This prevention medication will ensure good health and will minimize vet visits due to weight loss or tick bite fever.

This is our most respected feral lady on the farm … Ms Magoo! 
Everyone knows to respect Ms Magoo or be prepared to suffer the consequences … she does not tolerate it when you treat a feral cat with disrespect.

Ms Magoo is a special needs feral madam living in our adult cattery – she is squint due to a very serious eye infection she had whilst living on the streets in Cape Town.

Ms Magoo was lucky enough to have her Seresto Collar sponsored and asks if you are able to sponsor her fellow ferals with their own Seresto collar for R334.20, she and us would be extremely grateful to you. We cannot give them monthly flea treatment due to the high stress levels of trapping and confining them. At least with a Seresto collar they only need to deal with us every 8 months.

To love a feral soul is to love without condition.

Please treasure your feral and community cats!

Help Us Win with Hill’s Transforming Lives Campaign

Hill’s Pet Nutrition has launched an exciting competition – www.HillsTransformingLives.co.za – in which you can win amazing prizes and also help us and other animal charities and shelters.
Simply go to the www.HillsTransformingLives.co.za website and share your own story about how Hill’s food has transformed your pet’s life. If you don’t have a story to share (or don’t have a pet) you can simply like or share some of the stories already on the website. There are some incredible ‘tails’, it’s really worth a visit for all animal lovers. 

Each month 10 winners will be randomly selected. They receive a shopping voucher worth R3, 000 (for Woolworths or Takealot) and can nominate their favourite registered animal NPO/charity to receive R3,000 of Hill’s pet food. That’s R30, 000 of Hill’s food being given away each month, from now until end December. 

Even more excitingly, in January 2018 one main winner will be chosen to win a Grand Holiday Prize worth R50 000 and R50 000 for their chosen charity (in either cash or Hill’s food).

Each time you share your story, persuade a friend to share their story, or like / share a story on the site that has touched your heart, you receive an entry into the competition.

We would love you to participate and nominate us as your chosen charity (if you are lucky enough to be selected as one of the 60+ winners). Please spread the word and increase the chance of us benefiting from these wonderful prizes.


Thank You for your support!
