Big Boy Bernard
We'd like to introduce you all to Bernard who was handed over to us by the amazing Vets4Pets Borehamwood . This beautiful boy is the size of a small child who demands attention which is no problem for his loving fosterer. He was found in the Borehamwood area of Herts and has been said to be living stray for a while now. Fortunately for Bernard, he is receiving treatment for his eye infection, has been treated for fleas and worms and will hopefully soon be up for rehoming. Thank you to the person who handed him over to vets4pets borehamwood and thank you to the team and vets4pets for looking after and treating this big boy
This little lady has found herself in our care to no fault of her own with a rather sad story. Purdey was living with her owner after being found stray as a kitten. Unfortunately Purdeys owner was forced to give her up due to him being moved out of his flat into a smaller space. This case for the team and the responder who attended has been one of the hardest emotionally we have dealt with. Purdey is obsessed with attention, so trying to get a clear photo of her is near impossible as she takes all the love and attention she can get.
The Garden Babies Caught on Cam
Most of our foster homes have CCTV this is mostly to capture behavior that may not be normally seen... well this video was taken at 3am after these little darlings decided to wake the house up with their chasing games - gotta love em! This is amazing for these kittens as they all came in with the flu and now as you can see they clearly all feel much better
Alice came into the rescue due to her not getting along with the other cats in the house after her original owner was unable to look after her any longer. Little Alice here is a British shorthair and will eventually be looking for her forever home - as you can see she is rather pretty and is shy at the moment but has already shown her fosterer her loving personality and loves nothing more than affection.
Clementine The Cutie
Unfortunately Clementine was dumped with nothing more than the box she was in and a note reading 'owner dead'. The person who dumped her fortunately did so at a vets and didn't hang around to give any information and the vets have been fantastically looking after her since. This is completely unacceptable as this poor cat will now have to go through health tests and quarantine to ensure she hasn't any pre existing health conditions. These tests can be stressful for cats and costly for the rescue and if we have the information when a cat is handed over rather than being dumped, it is beneficial for everyone including the cat. If you have a pet that you wish to surrender then do so but remember all information in relation to your pet is needed. We don't ask for it for fun or to catch people out, we ask for it to simply save the pet you surrendered less stress and anxiety over what is going on. Clementine has fortunately settled fairly well in her foster home and as you can see she is an absolutely beautiful little girl. We are sure she will eventually make a fantastic addition to someone's family once she has been given the all clear.
Cody the Cutie
Cody came in to us after his owner unfortunately passed away. He is a very affectionate cat with a lot of love to give. Cody can be a little nervous around new people and men as he is used to his previous owner who was an older lady, but in time we feel this may change with the right adoptive family. He has settled in very well with his foster home and has really come out of his shell to show his beautiful personality - his favorite place to sit is on the window sill, and will tap his foster mum for attention whilst she is working on the computer.
The Garden Babies
Upon arrival, we were updated that a very young mother and three kittens were all in need of urgent assistance who had been living in a garden where a lovely family had taken them in to try and care for them. Unfortunately, mumma cat, as you'll see, has lost vision in her right eye due to an attack by another cat. You will also notice the kittens are all currently unwell with cat flu We have taken them all to the vets as we feel due to their breathing a vets visit was urgently needed.
The kittens are being bottle fed as they are not feeding from mumma cat and we are continuing to try and get them to latch on to mummy, but as they hadn't fed from her for a couple of days prior to us being aware of them, her milk started to dry up. They are all strong little fighters and won't let anything get in their way!
Coco came to us during the first lock down after she was unfortunately hit by a vehicle in Edgware London. She was badly injured and unfortunately had to undergo surgery to attempt to save her rear right leg but due to the level of damage to the nerves, muscles and tendons, the limb could not be saved and had to be amputated. Not long after Coco came into our care, it was noticed that her nipples and belly were slightly swollen. She was taken back to the vets for a scan and it was then found that Coco was pregnant with 2 kittens. At this point it was unclear as to weather Coco would be able to have the kittens due to the trauma she sustained to her back end but it was decided between Moonstone Rescue and the vets to leave her be for the mean time. Around two weeks after the discovery, Coco unfortunately lost the kittens which was very sad for her as well as us but we believe this was what was ment to be. Since Coco had her op she has come on leaps and bounds. She is now in a loving home where she never has to worry about traffic or injury again. She was also placed with other young cats who she has taken on as her own and is definitely the queen of her castle
This precious princess was living out in the rough, pregnant, riddled with fleas and had been attacked on many occasions with scabs and wounds over her neck, head and back before the great team at Moonstone Rescue took action. She has been flea treated, fed and cleaned up and has already shown her gratitude being inside with the loudest purrs and cuddles. Absolute sweetheart with a heart of gold who had a string of bad luck, but not anymore. She is eating very well and feeding her babies well as her stomach is growing bigger each day.
The Boiler Cupboard Boys
This little guy came to us as his mother had been taken away from him and his brother who were living in a bad environment. He is only just 4 weeks old and we are currently working on getting his brother ASAP. He has been feeding on cimicat every few hours to try and substitute his mother's milk with our amazing fosterers who are up every couple of hours throughout the night to make sure he is doing OK and continues to build strength.
We have managed to get little man's brother! Little man was in a bad situation being separated from his mother and the team at Moonstone Rescue have been working hard to get his brother in safe hands which we have managed to do. It definitely looks like they are happy to be reunited with each other!
