Bury St Edmunds & Stowmarket Cat Protection

Fortunately, we had rehomed all our cats before lockdown started, except for Cleo who wasn’t ready to be homed at that time and is the only cat we have in care at the moment.

Providing the current COVID-19 situation doesn’t deteriorate, we hope to resume taking in some cats during the second half of August, which will then need to have relevant vet checks and vaccinations before being ready to be rehomed. This is good news, although the processes that we work to will have to change in order to comply with government and CP guidelines re social distancing and sanitisation, and so will take longer than normal. We hope you will bear with us as it is essential that we protect our volunteers and the members of the public whom we come into contact with. We are a small branch of CP so will only be able to take in a limited number of cats.

Cleo is a small, sweet-natured black and white female about seven years old. She came into our care as she had some health issues which her previous owners were unable to solve. We have carried out many tests and she has been diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease, which is controlled by daily medication (one tablet which she is very good about taking).

Poor Cleo was in a very poor condition when she came into care but she has put on weight and looks a different cat now. Initially, she was quite shy but she has come out of herself now and is very friendly, loves to be fussed and will sit on her fosterer’s lap. We are looking for a quiet home for her as an only pet with an adult family or one with older children. CP will pay for her medication as we don’t want this to be a barrier to finding the right home for her. Cleo is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.

If your cat hasn’t been neutered and your circumstances mean that you need help towards the cost, please ring Margaret on 01284 851055 and leave a message. Your call will be returned as soon as possible.

Our September fayre in Woolpit has been cancelled owing to the current COVID-19 situation but we hope to see you all again when things improve.
