Meet Bumble



We thought it was time we introduced you to Bumble. Bumble is coming up to 9 weeks of age and whilst his siblings will be going off to their new homes. Bumble is facing major surgery. When he was found in a shed with his mum and siblings it became clear that he had suffered some trauma to his front and back legs. We dread to think what happened but Bumble will be needing to have a total amputation of his front leg and the removal of a digit from his back paw. He is a strong and healthy little boy but the operation is estimated to be between £400-500. 

This week we received a vet bill of just over £1,000 which we can pay with all the fundraising that we've been doing but if anyone can spare £5 towards helping us pay for Bumble's operation we would be extremely grateful. We have a donate button on our blog
http://mkcatrescue.blogspot.co.uk or a donation of kitten food would be gratefully received. 

It all helps x

Cosgrove Summer Fete

An amazing day of fundraising. Welcome & thank you to Debbie & Chris for joining our volunteering team...

Morris the Morrisons Cat

We thought it was time we shared some sad news with you all. To be honest its taken us some time to digest the news but its about Morris the Morrison's cat. Morris was well known in Westcroft for hanging around the car park and had been seen eating old bread and left over pizza's. 


On the 29 May 2016 we managed to trap Morris after several attempts of trying to catch him by hand. Sadly after two weeks in care his condition deteriorated and after some tests he has been diag...nosed with hepatitis and FIV. Morris remains in foster and has been given approximately 6 months to live. 



Now that his condition is being managed and he's been neutered, he is happy to have a fuss and is full of purrs. We would love to find someone who could provide palliative care to Morris....are we asking too much?

If there is anyone out there that has no other pets or children that would like to give Morris a home to call his own can you contact us? Morris will need to see the vet every 3 weeks or so to have a steroid injection and vitamin B12 shot but we will continue to pay for his vet treatment and food. We've put Morris into a foster room rather than remaining in a pen but we just want to do right by him - give him the life that he should have had for so long. If there is an angel out there can you email us mkcatrescue@gmail.com

Puss Puss

Have you been following Puss Puss' blog? His fosterer is sharing his journey following admission into our care and for anyone involved in cat welfare, you know you can never tell what a cat's journey will be until they are in care and they've seen a vet!

http://mkcatrescue.blogspot.co.uk/p/the-story-of-one-cat.html

We're delighted that Puss Puss had his dental yesterday with no complications and at 13 delighted to hear from Lyn that he was having a nibble of food at 3am this morning.  Here he is on one of his many cat beds!




If you are enjoying learning about fostering and the work that MK Cat Rescue do in the community and would like to donate towards helping cats in our care and community, please consider using the Donate button on our blog.  We will keep everyone informed of Puss Puss' progress x

MK Vegan Festival

We only found out today that we were named in the local newspaper as one of the animal welfare charities that was attending....we felt rather chuffed - its the first time we've been in the paper :-)


The day itself was quite something and we've had an amazing time at the Vegan Festival today and a big thank you to Annie and Stewart for raising £223 at the event. 



We have two lovely volunteers today who are celebrating their birthdays, one is Stewart and the other is Lloyd so we wish you both a very happy birthday. We can't sign off today without thanking our fabulous volunteer Marie who made all our stock for today. We think the mission of getting people to eat homemade vegan will be getting out there in a big way after today
