Three Little Kittens

Gables Farm Dogs and Cats Home has recently taken in three little kittens from the RSPCA who despite being 12 weeks old are only the size of kittens half their age. As a result the trio of boys have been named Tiny Tim, Teenie Weenie and Half Pint.

All three were cold, dirty and desperately underweight when they arrived at Gables. They were suffering from cat flu, and had sore watery eyes and runny noses, which made it difficult for them to breathe. As cat flu blocks their sense of smell they do not have much of an appetite so helping them to eat and gain weight is proving difficult.

They have been at Gables for just over a month now, They are doing much better but still have a long way to go before they are fully recovered and ready to start looking for new loving homes, but as Gables Farm are a genuine non-euthanasia charity they will not give up on these three little kittens.

Our Just Giving campaign has once again been hugely successful and has raised us an incredible £1690.50 which will provide these kittens with the best care possible, all their medication, food, flea and worming treatment as well as neutering and vaccinations and ultimately a forever home for them all once they are happy and healthy.

We would like to Thank everyone who donated and shared our kittens story and we will keep you updated on their progress.

Little Kooky

Gables Farm Dogs & Cats Home has recently taken in a 9 year old West Highland Terrier who has been named Little Kooky. Little Kooky arrived in a terrible state with over grown nails, very bad skin due to a severe flea infestation and skin allergies and is almost blind as she is suffering from end-stage dry eye, all caused from a lack of basic veterinary care.

Little Kooky will need to be spayed to prevent her from developing a condition known as Pyometra, which is an infection of the womb that is more common in older animals and can be life threatening. She is also going to need plenty of TLC, medical baths and pain relief as well as eye treatment for the rest of her life, which could hopefully be at least another 5 years.

Our Just giving campaign for Kooky has now closed. We had hoped to raise £1000 to cover the cost of her much needed surgery and the life time veterinary care she needs for her eyes. We didn’t quite reach our target but we are thoroughly grateful for every penny which will make the world of difference to the lifetime care of Little Kooky. You can still donate on our website or pop in and see us if you wish to help.

We would like to Thank everyone who donated and shared Little Kookys story and we will keep you updated on her progress.
