Hey – I’ve just gone into my new home. Thank you RAIN RESCUE for saving my life
- My name is Arnie and I’m the character cat here in the cattery.
- I got run over, and sadly the vet couldn’t save my badly damaged leg so had to chop chop it off. Does it bother me? Hey no – I don’t even know.
- I am really nice and affectionate and although I’m still on my contained rest, I’m getting used to these home comforts like nice blankets, regular food and lots of cuddles.
- I could live with older children if they were nice to me, so they are old enough to understand my disability and not be too rough with me.
- I’m around 3 years old.
- I will now need to be an indoor cat but would like to wander round the garden when its safe and warm enough to do so in the spring and my legs have got used to my changing shape.
WINDOW WATCHER – I like to watch the world go by from my cushion in the window.
- I only need another month of cage rest (Till mid January) and then I’m fine (although I will tell you to let me out now for a cuddle)

HOUSE TRAINED - I am clean in my litter tray.
YOUNG – Im only around 3 years old.
REHOMING PACKAGE - I have a special rehoming fee of £50 which goes towards some of my costs here at the rescue.
Thanks to Cat Protection – here is some GREAT advice

Dogs and cats do get on. Kittens may be easier to introduce a dog to but adult cats that have come from homes with dogs (or laid back strays that we have in our care) can equally be re homed with dogs that are feline friendly. So much depends on the breed and age of the dog, which is often why we make a point to ask. Sometimes it is easier to introduce a cat to a dog then it is with a cat to a resident cat. For more information about how to introduce a new feline into your home with resident dogs or/and cats check out the articles under behaviour on the International Cat Care website www.icatcare.org
Finally neutering. The many problems caused by unspayed or unneutered pets each year are part of what has prompted numerous rescue societies to require that any adopted animals be promptly spayed or neutered as a condition of adoption. It really is very simple, by getting your cat neutered when it reaches the appropriate age you save the “lives” of many other puss cats out there, and any true animal lover would surely wish that.
