Cat Action Trust 1977 - Ayrshire
Rehoming Cats & Kittens: East Ayrshire, Glasgow, North Ayrshire & South Ayrshire
UPDATE! Thanks to our page on this great site Emmy now has a wonderful home lined up with people who totally understand that she's a shy girl who just needs time and kindness with the right people to help her settle into a safe and comfortable life. She'll be with us until the beginning of December, but what a great Christmas she's going to have in her new Forever home.

Have you seen those lovely babies Baz, Libby and Alfie? Well, meet their gorgeous mum, Emmy. Without a doubt, Emmy had a rough time out there alone and pregnant and like so many cats in that situation she will have found nothing much to make her trust we humans. For so many, the 'norm' is to be chased from place to place, surviving as best they can and sometimes not. That's the situation Emmy was in until, that is, she and her three babies stumbled upon a garden where the people took pity on her, giving her food and a reason to hang around. We were asked to help and so the wee family came into our care. Her babies had never been handled but have come on so well and are now playful, happy, kittens who are well used to human company but Emmy is still such a shy girl. She wasn't overly chuffed about being locked away in a cat pen with three demanding weans and not having had much reason to trust people, that didn't help, but she's not actually 'feral' either. It's quite possible that, given more time and patience Emmy could settle into the kind of domestic arrangement that would suit her so well, one which would give her the freedom to come and go as she pleased while also ensuring she had food and shelter in a safe environment. A smallholding or similar could well be the answer, or perhaps stables with no connection to hunting or hunt kennels. Of course, what would be absolutely vital is Emmy being able to be kept in a secure environment for several weeks until she was very well settled before being allowed outdoors. Those type of homes are hard to come by, unfortunately, as are the people with enough patience to give cats like Emmy the time they need to feel safe. We're guessing Emmy's age to be between 2 and 3 years old, but that's quite possibly an over-estimate as she's clearly very young. I hope that's the case and that she hasn't already had litters out there with no help and endured all that that entails. She didn't ask for the life she was leading and deserves so much better - they all do. Emmy had her spaying operation today, September 8th, so no more babies for her, and she's started her vaccinations (which we'll have completed in three weeks time) been wormed and microchipped. Someone out there can give this lovely girl a good life, and I hope we can find that person or persons.
