*Now at RSPCA Macclesfield*Delightful Daisy is looking for her perfect match

 

 

14787095_1221051441289360_2109371074_o

Daisy is a super sweet, 2-year-old, female cat. When Daisy was brought into our branch she was in quite poor condition due to not being looked after properly by her previous owner. She was also very shy, hiding away in her pen a lot, unsure about anyone she would meet. After a bit of time spent settling in and getting to know everyone at the branch she started to grow into a much more confident, happy cat. Daisy may take a little longer to get to know new people but with a slow introduction and a lot of love she will warm round to anyone. She likes to climb onto your knee and walk in between your legs to be close to you.

Daisy also has a special little trick she does when she sees people walking past her cattery door near food time. She will chatter to herself, almost as if she is watering at the mouth. To see her in action please watch the video above.

Daisy is a very dainty little girl, longing for a fresh start in a new home. She would be best suited to a more quiet household, so if you feel you can give this gorgeous girl a home please email us at – rehoming@rspca-whs.org.uk, or call us on 01925 632944.

John Oakley’s 100 Mile Kayak Challenge: One man for the dogs

max7RSPCA WHS volunteer, John Oakley is taking on an EPIC challenge for us. He is going to kayak from Hull to Warrington, a total of nearly 100 MILES in memory of his Dad. He will be joined by a former resident of our kennels, Max. Max was abandoned by his owner and through no fault of his own stayed in our centre for over a year. John and Kei Oakley gave him the loving home he deserves and he will now accompany John on his journey.

John will begin his challenge on Sunday 18th September, which would have been his Dad’s 81st birthday. He plans to finish around 1pm on Saturday 24th September at the London Bridge Inn, Appleton. We would love a crowd to gather to welcome him home.

John will be travelling for 6 days and sleeping overnight in a tent alongside the canals he’s travelling through. He will be kayaking for around 8 hours per day and travelling roughly 17 miles per day to achieve his target.

John told us, ‘I want to do something to help the dogs at the RSPCA centre in Warrington. My wife, Kei, and I volunteer at the centre and have witnessed the fantastic work they do and we love to see the difference a few weeks of love and care can make to their lives.

It is going to be an extremely challenging journey but I know my Dad will be proud of me and I hope to raise plenty of money for the RSPCA and the dogs they care for.’

Please sponsor John and Max now. Visit https://www.justgiving.com/John-Oakley3 to give your donation.
