Shadow

Shadow is just a youngster we understand had some housetraining issues in his home. He has only recently been neutered and this together with being an only cat will pay dividends. He is an affectionate boy who is fairly confident but we feel that despite his bravado he lacks a bit of confidence. A gentle…

Fennel

We don’t know a huge amount about Fennel’s history except he had been sleeping rough for some considerable years. Although we believe Fennel might have a slight “street cat” side so far he has shown himself to be loving and affectionate if slightly fearful of hands. He has a lovely gentle side and will offer…

Izzy

Izzy is around 10 years old and has very pretty colouring.

When is a stray cat not a stray cat?

Cats are naturally wanderers as far as 10 miles, especially if unneutered.  Cats, when they visit other houses, are always ‘starving’ and are never fussy eaters (I once knew a cat that would only eat turkey at home but went and raided the neighbours cat food bowl every day). So what can you do if…

Day 648 and Christmas came early

I think I speak for all the staff and volunteers at the kennels that if we had one wish for Christmas, much as we love him, it would be for Archie to not spend it with us at kennels but with a new family.  Well yesterday 648 days after coming into kennels our Archie finally…

And still they keep coming in

There appears to be a never ending stream of kittens being found.  This morning two more came in from the Duns area.  Very pretty with sharp claws and teeth.  We’re sure they’ll come round as soon as they realise we’re a source of food.  These two are probably around the 12 weeks mark so still…

Another busy Saturday

We’ve another busy Saturday ahead with 14 animals off to their new homes.  Fortunately a lot of them are cats as we have a huge waiting list of cats to come in. We often get asked if we are sad when the animals leave us.  That’s a difficult question, it is after all what we’re…

The wonder of mother nature

Yesterday we took in three kittens about 3 or 4 weeks old that were found by the road side.  Apparently healthy, and certainly with healthy appetites. Lucille had just finished feeding her 5 so we though we’d see if she would help us out.  She wasn’t a natural mother when her kittens were born, she…

Plant Sale preparations

Our plant sale is always very popular and Karen has been planting seeds since before the last one.  Her long suffering husband has decided the only way forward is a poly tunnel as they have no more window sills, or space for that matter in their house and garden.  So today a massive 25 x…

“I could never put my animal into rescue……..”

Rescue animals come in for all sorts of reasons, the minority is your stereotypical dumped, abandoned, unwanted.  For many bringing animals in to us it is a heart wrenching decision which causes upset past the initial bringing in.    Many owners have brought animals in because for one reason or another finance, or lack of…

We are lucky to have our vets, Galedin, so close.  It’s vet visit today.  Nothing particularly exciting.  14 vaccinations and check ups plus we’re a bit concerned about one of our rabbits so a check over by the vet will hopefully sort that out.  Fortunately today is not the day for all the kittens to…

BARK News 11th August 2016

Even though we haven’t chosen the name for the dogs in the kennels at the moment there is a bit of a theme, we have Billy, Chillie and Milly and Charlie, Marley and Charlie.  It can be a bit of a tongue twister, especial as the ‘groups’ tend to be out on their walks together. …
