    To see the way a cat and a kitten are treated by the owner living outside N14 old police station. Offer of help for the kitties was far from welcome. Chloe the cat owner obvious substance user told me she was there by choice and enjoyed that lifestyle. She said her partner sits outside nearby shops and begs. One cat has a harness and lead and is usually tied to the railings. The kitten is on a lead either tied to the railings or in a carrier. Sadly yesterday i witnessed Chloe walking up Winchmore Hill road with the black and white cat on a lead in the pouring rain and the kitten in a carrier held at an angle. The cat on a lead did not want to walk and was being dragged along. So selfish to submit cats to such a lifestyle. Very upsetting. I am very sad and angry over this. Please report to rspca who so far have not done anything about it though visited and were told by Chloe she will be rehomed in two weeks. Yet she told me this is how she and partner want to live…

    Not one offer from any Scooploop member of a kind and suitable home for my rescued kitties! Not one offer of fostering or rehoming!!! I go to fosterers in other counties as too few local ones.However most grateful for the few donations collected by Suzy P. More unwanted and abandoned cats than ever and i hate to refuse to help those in need. It has taken over my life the last 15 years+ and not for the best. Long Covid is still preventing me from doing fund raising car boot sales and reduces my ability to get on with daily life to various degrees as some days are spent mostly in bed and others i can slowly get on with the too many tasks involved with rescuing cats. Fuel is a big and unavoidable expense. Most people prefer kittens to cats forgetting they are not kittens for very long and that they can last 15/20 years. Also most kittens should be rehomed in pairs. Once again thank you to the few of you who help me help cats in need. Suzy P kindly collects donations from £1 a month. No more heating or electricity in my garden cat room due to costs sadly. In the house electricity use is kept to the strict minimum, in fact ridiculous minimum… I have an Amazon list ready which i am attempting to make Scooploop members aware of. All the best to you all

    To those of you helping me help cats in need. More than ever abandoned, unwanted, abused! Many people selling underage kittens taking them away from their mum and siblings at 3 or 4 or 5 weeks old giving them to children who get bored with them in no time and most of the time have no idea about their needs. Few people are aware they live 15/20 years and should be kept that length of time as loved and spoiled family members. Many people are not aware of vets costs and few take their kittens and cats for check ups and treatments and neutering. Many cats are not provided water outside. Non plastic and non metal containers asking for too much…Few people give their pets best quality food. Few people inform themselves of ingredients contents and few can afford good quality. The outcome can be cats acquiring preventable costly health issues. Many unwanted /abandoned cats have health issues. The consequences end up problematic for rescues inundated with pets and many on waiting lists. Picking up the pieces from irresponsible pet owners is costly as well as constant hard work. So your help is very much appreciated. No local fosterers and rarely local adoptions keep travelling expenses higher and is time consuming. Thank you for your help

    Finally put together an Amazon wish list for items needed to help take care of the many rescued cats i look after. Sadly no idea how to introduce it to Scooploop kind members who might be able to and want to help. Thank you

    As per someone’s suggestion about creating an Amazon wish list to receive items needed for taking care of the many cats i rescue I looked into it and went ahead with it. But due to lack of knowledge I have no idea how to complete and inform Scooploop people about it. I lack time and knowledge. So here I am looking forward to receiving items from kind people prepared to help but no idea how to introduce the list !!! Today the catch of the day was one mama with her five kittens in a garden. Next four kittens to catch in an N11 garden where already 9 cats have been caught and 5 put back after vet’s visit. Too many irresponsible pet owners cause a never ending problem.

    No luck with finding cat fosterers via Scooploop! So many abandoned cats in need of help. There would be fewer if irresponsible owners had fostered instead and of course got their cats neutered. A big challenge to pick up the pieces or the cats rather from irresponsible owners! A life changing one in my case.

    To all of you who are helping me rescue cats in need. Once again I appreciate very much your donations. Thank you also to Suzy P who kindly collects one off and monthly donations. Alternatively it can be done directly to my vet’s account. Flea and worming treatments are a regular big expense. Rarely a day without being asked to take on an abandoned or unwanted or stray or feral cat or several. I go without a lot in order to help as many cats as I can. Not that being able to watch TV would help my morale these days. Now used to be without. I am extremely grateful for help as fund raising car boot sales are not on and if the weather is as wet as last year’s it will not be very successful. I am surrounded by car boot sale items in my house and garden and lack space so have not been able to accept more. Renting a garage is a minimum of £40 a week so not an option to consider. Rescue expenses are not just food and vets bills. Transport is also costly. My car needs brake pads and a service and shock absorbers. Carrying heavy loads of cat litter and storing it in car does it no good. Insurance quote to renew has gone up 50% though not claimed. The garden cat room is still without electricity so warm beds and duvets are the alternative to heating sadly. My house is not being maintained as my money must go towards vet’s bills instead. Long Covid is not helping me much with taking care of house and garden as my energy is very limited as well as funds. Cleaning is now mostly done by hand rather than with the help of vacuum cleaner doing my best to keep electric bill low and so on. This is how it goes when you decide to help as many cats in need as you can. Too many are rehomed to people who should not have them in the first place. Consequently I am rather demanding when rehoming. Fostering and rehoming offers are rare. So I need to travel quite a way to find suitable homes. I don’t have to go far to take on cats in need of help… Forever moaning due to rescue challenge. Bad enough with life nowadays… Your donations have been and are very much appreciated as it helps me help more cats in need let down by irresponsible previous owners. Would be real good if I could find suitable local people with a big heart and a spare room who could foster. Thanks again for latest donations

    The last few days I have had the pleasure of visitors in the shape of insects I have never seen before. They look crossed between a mosquito, a fly and a very small moth. They hang around lights or well lit areas. They are not very active or fast. Sadly I have taken pleasure in exterminating them with my magic zapper. Though not proud of killing my visitors… Has anyone seen those? Know what they are?

    Many cat trees are advertised for sale as such when in fact they are only suitable for kittens. The size of the beds and platforms are different. Pointless buying a kitten tree that will only be suitable for a short time. Do pay attention to the sizes mentioned. I get offered for my rescued cats unwanted cats trees which are in fact kitten trees and not much use to cats. But most people are not aware. Better off too large than not large enough. Also it is better to buy one which has pillars covered with string/rope rather than partly covered. More likely to get used for scratching. You might waste money unless you acquire a suitable one. Best to get a taller model if there are dogs or small children around. And don’t forget suitable toys and best quality catnip items such as Yeowww bananas. Not to mention best quality food rather than cheap rubbish. Do spoil your kitties. They deserve it!

    Needed ASAP for rescued cats Fosterers within 1 hour of N14 Permanent homes within 2 hours of N14 Rehomed cats are chosen for compatibility with new owners rather than for their looks to ensure a happy forever relationship. They first go to their new home on trial basis. They must be spoiled and loved having been let down by previous owners. They must be given the best quality suitable food. Private tenants best fostering. Most of these cats come from private tenants who left them behind. Many more waiting for help but too few people offer help to cats in need… Some cats would appreciate a comfi garden shelter and regular good food rather than being on the streets. Location must be safe. Thank you

    Specially now as ten cats whose owner is seriously ill in hospital are full of fleas as well as many more rescued cats. Instant flea tablets and spot on welcome please. Those are expensive and are continuously needed. Cat wet food also needed. Preferably not Whiskas or Classic. Thank you
