At Honey’s Pledge we care for many animals, including some wonderful cats. Here is the story of Daisy.
A very good friend in Geelong contacted me worried about a young kitten in her neighbourhood. The young female seemed to be permanently on the street with little care. . She asked around neighbours but those who answered had no idea who was caring for the kitten. The kitten with no tattoo showing she had been speyed and was not micro chipped.
It was a searing hot summer and the kitten was obviously sleeping under cars with no access to shelter or water. After making enquiries widely my friend asked if we could take in this little girl.
We were able to do so and named her ‘Daisy.’
She is a real beauty with wonderful snow leopard colouring with ginger highlights. She arrived in a cat basket travelling in style and immediately settled into a life of inside luxury to ‘the manor born’.
Daisy settled. Then one day my friend had a knock on her door. A neighbour held a young female dog in his arms but with her legs hanging. He frantically asked my friend to help as his dog had started having her pups and he did not know what to do. She sent him to a vet but found out the young dog, just 6 months old, was in pup to a large dog…….asking some questions she then found that these same people had ‘owned’ the kitten…but had gone on a long holiday, leaving her behind.
She told them that she had rehomed the kitten and they told her they really did not care……. So we were glad Daisy came to us. At a shelter she would have been lucky to have been adopted amongst the thousands of unwanted kittens.
It is vital that all domestic animals are de sexed. And carers who care, microchip their dogs and cats.
It is always really helpful if dogs and cats can have a tag with a mobile telephone number to contact a carer as soon as possible, especially after hours.
Here are some glamour shots of Daisy!
