Finding Forever Homes

Marmalade on the Road to Recovery

When Marmalade was handed in as a stray, he was extremely emaciated and was covered from head to paw in dark dirt. He was also suffering from red and itchy skin which had left him bald in some places. The priority for Marmalade was to get him cleaned up as soon as possible.

Marmalade was bathed to remove the dirt that covered his furMargaret Green veterinary nurse Liz Morgan said ‘the extent of the dirt covering Marmalade became apparent when I gave him a bath. The water turned almost black’. Liz added ‘after his bath, Marmalade started washing straight away ­ it must have been a huge relief for him’.

Now that Marmalade has been cleaned up, he is doing really well. He is eating well and with the right diet, care and a lot of love, staff at the sanctuary have high hopes for this little fighter. Liz said ‘Marmalade is around thirteen now and so we are looking forward to seeing him happily rehomed somewhere where he can live out his twilight years with lots of TLC’.

Marmalade is currently reserved. However, we have many more cats and kittens waiting for their forever homes. If you think you could give one of them a loving forever home, please view them here.
