Sponsorship is a great way to help a cat in need. All sponsors will receive a certificate and regular updates of the work of the society. If you would prefer to set up a standing order with your bank, please email us - firstname.lastname@example.org - and we will email you back a form to complete and hand in to your bank.
From time to time Streetkatz takes into care cats which still have a good quality of life but for whatever reason may be slow or impossible to rehome. These cats may be older cats, they may have health or behavioural issues, or a combination of all of these!
One of our long-term aims is to set up a sanctuary for older and hard to home cats. In the meantime we have a small handful of cats which are unlikely to be rehomed but which still need to be fed and medicated.
Albert, a British Blue, was found collapsed on Southborough Common and was in a poor state. He was very thin, matted and soaking wet. Albert's owners were eventually traced and, we are pleased to say, he has been signed over to us and will live with us until the end of his days. He has periodic epileptic seizures but these are being controlled with phenobarbitone and he is gradually putting on some weight. He was only 3.8Kg on arrival and should be a minimum of 5Kg. He has put on about 0.5Kg since he came in and his seizures have been controlled and we are hopeful his weight will continue to increase. Albert, real name Sam, loves a fuss but can be quite determined especially when pilchards are on offer. He will be 13 in July and would love to be sponsored, either to help pay for his epilepsy medication or to supply his serious pilchard addiction!!
Sam is being fostered in the Tunbridge Wells area and sponsors are invited to visit to do some serious Sam cuddling.
Sam's medication costs about £15 and this lasts for 2 months. If you can help, please either donate via the Paypal button above or send a cheque payable to Streetkatz Rescue to 2 Manor Cottages, Lamberhurst TN3 8DF. Pilchard sponsorship is absolutely down to you!!
Suzy belonged to an elderly lady who was taken into hospital and from there to a long-term nursing home. Suzy was left in the cattery for many months and ended up living in the cattery owner’s porch. Sadly, the cattery owner died suddenly and unexpectedly so Suzy found herself homeless at the age of 14.
Suzy was very stressed when she came into our care and was over-grooming. After much tlc and a change of diet, our lovely Suzy Q is much improved. She has started to play and, like many younger cats, has her mad 5 minutes! Ideally, she would love another home as an only pet and would make a wonderful lapcat for an older person. In the meantime, Suzy will stay in our care as one of our Golden Oldies.
