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.

Saturday 20th February 2021 is National Love Your Pet Day, a great day to show some love to our four-legged furry friends.

Whether you’re a cat lover, dog lover, rabbit lover or general animal lover, this day is another excuse to spoil them even more than you normally do and show them how much they mean to you!

We all like to think of our pets as ‘one of the family’ and as such, like to make them feel loved and at home. Some accessories, like a collar or a hutch, are basic necessities, whilst others, such as a multitude of outfits or a spa-style activity, could be seen as slightly less than ‘essential’.

Here at NAWT, we thought it would be interesting to look back at how pet accessories have changed over the last five decades…

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.

Before he arrived at NAWT, poor Tom had lost all of the fur around his neck, where his collar had been held on very tightly with a cable tie. Sadly, this wasn’t his biggest problem and things were about to get even worse for this lovely little cat.

Tom was suffering from a horrific ear infection, that had been left untreated for far too long. So long that the vet struggled to get drops into his ear, because his outer ear and ear canal were so terribly swollen.

Poppy arrived at NAWT in July as a frightened, timid little stray cat after she was found and handed in by a caring member of the local community.

As a stray, we can only estimate Poppy’s age and believe her to be around 5 years old. During her first few weeks at NAWT, Poppy would often hide away at the back of her pen when people approached, very withdrawn and scared.

If you were wondering which charity to choose for your upcoming fundraising event, have a read of some recent stories from our very own Rachel and James, who took part in long-distance runs to raise money for NAWT in October 2019.

First up was James, who started working for the charity in August this year as Marketing Assistant. He does the local Abbots Langley Tough Ten every year, where runners have to overcome steep hills as part of the 10k distance.
