Shelter Caturday - Romulus and Remus
Every Saturday we run a special feature on a rescue cat looking for a loving home. This week we have more double bubble with Romulus and Remus - a sweet pair of brothers currently waiting for a forever home at The Celia Hammond Animal Trust.
The Celia Hammond Animal Trust was founded in 1986 by Celia Hammond, an ex-supermodel, with the main objective of setting up low cost neuter and vaccination clinics, thus bringing responsible pet ownership within the reach of everyone. The charity now operates two low cost veterinary clinics in London (Lewisham and Canning Town), operates a rescue and homing service in parts of London, Kent and Sussex and has a rehoming centre & sanctuary in Brede, Nr Hastings. It's this last centre that Romulus and Remus were brought into after their last owner fell too ill to care for them.
Romulus and Remus are both 15 years young and slightly tatty round the edges, although this definitely just adds to their charm. They first arrived in February, when staff at the centre notice Romulus had some sun damage to his eartips, which is very common in white cats but can progress to skin cancer if left untreated. For this reason the vets decided it was best to amputated his ear tips whilst he was under general anesthetic for some dental work, He recovered extremely well and both these boys are keener than ever to go to their new home together.
Both these old boys are lovely and would make someone a pair of very loving companions - even after his eartips were taken off Romulus was still keen to get passerbys to admire him! This lovely pair need someone very special to offer them a safe, loving and comfortable retirement home.
Some potential adoptees may be put off by the age of these two felines - especially as older cats can be harder to get pet insurance for. However, The Celia Hammond Trust may be able to help with medical costs via their long-term foster scheme, so if you are looking for a pair of loving, laid-back felines be sure to enquire about these two!
