Turnip is an old lady who is very loving and is ready for a nice retirement knee to sit on.
Our vet thinks she is possibly about 12 years old, and thinks she is hard of hearing and has poor visability, but it certainly does not stop her from enjoying life. She still has lots to give anyone who could offer her a forever new home and family.
When she came in to the branch she had a very bad chest infection and was very thin, but her very kind fosterer has now managed to get quite a lot of weight on her and with a dose of antibiotics she is feeling loads better.
Her fosterer also says she is house trained and just loves being with you having a cuddle.
We think she would be better in a home with no other pets and needs to be a house cat now for her own safety as she couldn’t manage to find her way around the busy streets or wide open spaces of the countryside.
If you feel you could offer little Turnip the love and care she longs for please don’t hesitate to contact the branch to discuss our special adoption terms when adopting an animal with extra needs.
The branch urgently needs dedicated animal carers who would be prepared to foster adult cats or dogs who are recovering from illness, who have been injured accidentally or by their previous owners or who are simply waiting to find that very special family to call their own.
This will not involve any personal expense but could involve some sleepless nights. All out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed, all bedding, food, medication and associated veterinary expenses will be met by the branch.
For more information and to receive a leaflet about this important aspect of our work please email the branch.

If you would prefer to donate food and other much needed items directly to the branch rather than cash donation, we are in need of the following:
- Cat litter
- Kitten food
- Dog coats
- Dog leads
- Toys and various other comforts
Your gifts will benefit RSPCA animals who have suffered at the hands of their previous owners and are being rehabilitated by our volunteer dog walkers and cat socialisers.
Food, beds and cat litter etc will help to feed and provide warmth and comfort to those who are too young or sick to be rehomed from the cattery or kennels and are being cared for by fosterers in their own homes.

Did you know that one fifth of people who bought a puppy in the past two years no longer have their dog?* It’s a really sad fact and ends up with more dogs needing rehoming.
Dogs can live for around 15 years or more so owning one is a big and long term commitment. Time spent now researching the right puppy for you will really make all the difference.
