Their Story

The Beaches Arrival

I brought the Beach Bums back with me from the UK in June 2012. I know, I know, I’m supposed to take cats over there, not bring them back! But New Start knew of a hoarding situation near them. The man had started with a few, had neutered none … and now had 120 felines in one house (please do note how this illustrates the importance of neutering!).

They had flu when they came to me and have just had their first vaccination after recovering. Three of them still have slightly weepy eyes. That may clear up with time or they may have recurring problems that need treatment – so they need an understanding and sympathetic home. They’ll make it worth it, I can tell you!
