Until recently, it was thought that rabbits were introduced to Britain from France, after the Norman Conquest around the 11th Century.

Whilst they were farmed for their fur and meat, many sources suggest that some of the medieval gentry women started to keep rabbits as pets.

Socks is an English springer spaniel, who came to our Hertfordshire centre in early January 2021 as a stray.

During his initial assessment on arrival, Socks showed little to no interest in toys or food, and was shrinking away from human contact.

However, he showed a flicker of interest in Shelley, a Junior Animal Care Leader, and herself an experienced Spaniel owner. Shelley was allocated to work with Socks for his first few days to help him settle.

Casey came into the care of NAWT Hertfordshire in October 2020 as a pregnant stray. The team were told she was feral/semi feral, and her behaviour at the time suggested that this was indeed accurate.

So they made sure that Casey was comfortable by keeping handling to a minimum, as otherwise she would get very stressed, and would hiss and swipe at anyone who approached.

Once Casey had her kittens, the plan was to neuter and release her back to her colony. But although Casey was scared, as time went on, it became clear that she wasn’t actually behaving like a typical feral.

I’m Fluke, and I’ve been a resident at NAWT’s Cornwall rehoming centre for nearly two years now.

I didn’t have the best start in life, and found it very difficult to trust humans when I first came into the centre; I especially didn’t enjoy anyone touching me.

This is Snowdrop, an adorable 10-year-old cat who for 8 years was a homeless stray, until he was found in extremely poor health and rescued. He needs your help to pay for the urgent surgery he underwent and to fund his ongoing care.

Snowdrop was taken in by Tatty-Cats in October last year, and his condition was heart-breaking. Sadly, Snowdrop had cancer on his ears and an infection, as well as kidney and thyroid problems. He was filthy, covered in matted fur, riddled with fleas, and suffering from malnutrition, dehydration, and exhaustion. He could hardly even stand up on his own.
