The Cats available to sponsor

Lucy

“Hi there! My name is Lucy, and I’m a sleepy girl of 12-years”

“When I was younger I had a very happy life with my first owner, but when my owner grew sick I wasn’t able to stay with him any longer. At first I missed him very much, but thanks to the Shelter I learned to accept other humans and feel loved all over again.

Due to my kidney problems, which the Shelter worried may lead to future complications and requires expensive specialist food, they had a lot of trouble finding the right home for me.

Luckily for me, a very nice man came along who had recently lost a cat of his own, and we bonded over our shared experience. Now I have a home of my own again, and I couldn’t be happier!”

Sponsor Lucy using the buttons below and you can help us provide her with essential medicine and food for her kidneys, and the regular check-ups she requires.

Spitfire

  “Hi there! My name is Spitfire, and I’m a friendly 13-year old with one ear and a big heart!”

Coming from a house of 23 cats, Spitfire had a very rough start before she finally came to us.

Because the cats in this home weren’t neutered, lots of kittens were born who got sick and needed to be cared for. Even though Spitfire was sick herself, she did everything she could to care for her litter – even caring for kittens that weren’t her own – for a long time.

The Shelter took Spitfire in, along with her kittens and the other cats in the home, and we nursed them all back to health. We immediately took Spitfire to the vets to treat her teeth and gums, which were causing her lots of pain, and had her malformed ear removed which was causing health problems on its own. Not only this, but we found that she has a heart murmur which needs regular monitoring by a vet. Spitfire does still have bouts of ear problems, which her owner and the vets keep a close eye on and treat as necessary.

With her teeth and ear treated, and her kittens all safely homed, it was Spitfire’s turn for happiness. Now Spitfire has a home of her own, where she can finally rest, and play, and have lots of treats – all of which she deserves so much. The only one happier for Spitfire to have a home is her owner, who loves taking care of such a sweet and caring soul.

Sponsor Spitfire using the buttons below and you can help us provide Spitfire with essential medicine and veterinary treatment and the regular check-ups she requires for her mouth, ears and heart.

With your support we can ensure that no matter what happens, she will be able to receive whatever treatments she needs for her existing conditions. Of course, any money left over will go directly to helping cats in our shelter.

We’ll send you quarterly updates from Spitfire and her owner, and you’ll also get a sponsorship pack containing goodies like a sponsorship certificate, a book covering over 120 years of our history, a £5 off voucher to use at our charity shops, a signed thank-you letter from the Shelter staff, all sent in a The Sheffield Cats Shelter bag.

Harry

“Hi there! My name is Harry, and I’m a lovely, sniffly 13-year old boy!”

When Harry came to us he was in an awful state, having lived with the effects of untreated flu for a long time. This left his eyes sealed shut and his nose and throat were permanently affected which made it very difficult for him to breathe.

We gave Harry all the treatment he needed, nursing him slowly back to health, and though he had a slow recovery he is now a much happier, much healthier boy who lives with the kindest owner he could ask for. Every morning she washes his eyes and nose, and makes sure he takes the essential medicine you help us provide.

Now he has the nickname “Snotty Harry” which his owner affectionately calls him because he’s always sniffling away! Harry has also discovered a love of humans, and is always going up to his owner (and strangers) for a fuss. He loves giving kisses and face nuzzles, which his owner always appreciates – even if he is a sniffly boy!

Due to Harry’s serious conditions, he requires regular check-ups at the vets, as well as medication to help him breathe and keep him comfortable.

Sponsor Harry using the buttons below and you can help us provide him with his regular check-ups and essential medications, and ensure that if there are any complications with his condition in the future he will get all the care he needs. Of course, any money left over will go directly to helping the cats in our shelter.

We’ll send you quarterly updates from Harry and his owner, and you’ll also get a sponsorship pack containing goodies like a sponsorship certificate, a book covering over 120 years of our history, a £5 off voucher to use at our charity shops, a signed thank-you letter from the Shelter staff, all sent in a The Sheffield Cats Shelter bag.
