Adopt a Cat: #CharityTuesday

As a rescue kitty I want to help other rescue cats find their forever home, so we are continuing our new weekly feature for Charity Tuesday, sharing adoptable cats from Wood Green, the Animal Charity (which is where I was rescued). We are so grateful to this amazing charity because without them we would never have found each other! It's also one of the main charities we support.

TAZ arrived at the Heydon Centre after his previous owner unfortunately passed away. He says he is now looking for a home where "all his whims can be dealt with accordingly". This includes being brushed regularly and given lots of fuss whenever possible. After what he's been through, this boy deserves to get all the loving and pampering he asks for and more! Visit his page at Wood Green today!

MONTY is such a stunning male cat as you can see!  He arrived at the centre as a stray but he is a friendly boy, who enjoys a fuss and attention. He also loves a lap to sit on. If you want ot know more about him visit his profile.

HONEY (photo: Wood Green)

HONEY is so sweet and pretty but is understandably a little unsettled at the centre. She is friendly and affectionate and when settled in her forever home, will love to sit on your lap. If you would like to know more about her visit her profile


UNWANTED PET WEEK


No one wants to feel unwanted, but unfortunately for some pets this is the reality. They have become 'unwanted' due to the fact that some people don't really care. To them, these poor animals are either:


  • Too old 
  • Too expensive 
  • Too much effort 
  • Not suitable anymore because human child comes along


and no doubt many other reasons are given when a pet is abandoned just because someone decides they can't take care of it anymore.

But thanks to animal charities like Wood Green these animals are given care and another chance in life. A chance to find a new forever home. But charities like these cannot do it alone of course. To give these abandoned pets the help they need, to feed and shelter them, give them veterinary care and love until they find the loving home they deserve, help and support from the public is a must.

So this week, from 9 to 16 May 2016, Wood Green The Animals Charity (who take in more than 90 homeless and abandoned animals each week) are hoping to raise awareness and funds to help more animals. Yes, 'unwanted' is not a nice word, but as I said, the reality is that a lot of animals that find themselves at rescue shelters are 'unwanted' by someone. But that doesn't stop them becoming 'wanted' by some kind hearted person. Animal lovers like my human mum, who found me at Wood Green and adopted me. For I was 'unwanted' once. A tiny kitten abandoned in a garden in North London. But I was lucky. Extremely lucky to be taken care of by Wood Green until I found my forever home.

  1. Taz, Monty, and Honey are so cute! Manna completely understands Taz's need to be fussed about. :) I'm glad that Wood Green is helping kitties that are less likely to be adopted! They are all precious.

    1. Yes, Wood Green is a great animal charity. The North London centre, where Athena is from, first opened in 1924.

  2. What lovely cats! We pets are lifetime commitments - I don't get why there are some humans out there who don't understand that.

  6. It makes us sad that any kitty would be categorized as "unwanted," but it does make a good point. We are thankful for Wood Green, and know that these lovelies will find loving forever homes real soon. Sharing!

    Hugs to you both, Athena and Mum.
