cats’9lives – Pretoria, Gauteng

| October 19, 2010

 

cats’9lives – Pretoria, Gauteng The "cats'9lives" organisation is dedicated to caring for stray , unwanted and abandoned cats and kittens until such time that they are able to find permanent loving homes.

The "cats'9lives" organisation is dedicated to caring for stray , unwanted and abandoned cats and kittens until such time that they are able to find permanent loving homes.

The “cats’9lives” is a registered Non-Profit Organisation, dedicated to caring for stray, unwanted and abandoned cats and kittens until such time that they are able to find permanent loving homes. This organisation has no source of income and does not benefit financially from the adoption fee. Care is given by volunteers; therefore we are appealing for sponsorship of donations for food, litter and veterinary fees.
(See banking details above)

ADULTS
We have very limited space for adult cats and rely on foster homes until they are adopted. When an adult cat is rehomed the adoption fee ensures that the cat is inoculated, dewormed and sterilised. While the cat is with us they are fed, given lots of love and receives the necessary veterinary care when needed.

KITTENS
The kittens come mostly from backgrounds where the mother has disappeared or they have been dumped and left to fend for themselves. Where possible we try to keep them with their mothers until they are 6- 8 weeks old. If they are too small to feed themselves, our willing volunteers bottle or syringe feed them until they can eat solids. At this stage they come to our shelter to await adoption, which takes place from 7-8 weeks onwards. Due to the space restriction we have curtailed our numbers to about 20 kittens. The adoption fee includes 2 vaccinations, deworming, and sterilisation at 5-6 months by one of our designated veterinarians.
Since the start of “cats’9lives” in 2006 over 1200 kittens have been adopted and with the emphasis of the organisation on STERILISATION we have thus kept the number of unwanted kittens to the absolute minimum

“TOO MANY CATS BUT NOT ENOUGH LAPS”

Feral cats Because we are also involved with sterilising and feeding of feral cats we often find tame adult cats which got either lost or was abandoned by their owners, eating with the feral cats.  We then take them for a full medical check up, sterilise and innoculate them before finding them good homes. If there are kittens in a feral colony which are abandoned and can’t fend for them selves we also take them into our care. They get taken care by our volunteers who bottle feed and socialise them until thet are 8 weeks old and then they go to Avril, from where they will be adopted. All the above get funded by donations or by ourselves.

Of great importance to our organisation is the emphasis on STERILISATION to keep the numbers of unwanted kittens to the absolute minimum.
