Cats for Sponsorship

Wilfie & Rupert : SAD NEWS

We are very sad to say that we have recently lost Rupert, who was on the sponsor scheme  along with his best pal Wilfie.  Both boys came to us in poor health and needed special diets and care and this was lovingly given them by their foster carer.  Rupert suddenly became very ill and, after consultation with the vet, it was decided the kindest thing was to put him to sleep.  This was done at home with Wilfie and his foster carer by his side and the end was very peaceful. The two cats were very devoted to each other and Wilfie is being given lots of extra love by his foster carer to help him cope with the  loss of  his lifelong friend.

For the time being Wilfie will stay on the scheme but is only available to his existing sponsors as we are not accepting new sponsors for him. Thank you to everyone who has supported these two lovely cats over the years.

We came to The Ark as we were not happy living in a house with lots of other cats and we weren’t getting the attention that we needed.  You see we are both rather sensitive souls, particularly my best pal Rupert (he’s the blonde one).  He gets rather anxious about things and worried and he also has a bit of a dodgy tummy.  We both need to eat very special food (personally I think this is very appropriate as we are both very special boys) but apparently it costs a lot of money!  We’ve never been so well looked after as  I’m sad to say that we had been rather neglected in our previous home. When we arrived at The Ark  we had to have lots of dental work done (we both hate the dentist) but it did make eating easier as bad teeth don’t half hurt!  I also have a few problems with my eyes and they have to be cleaned every day to stop them  getting sore.  Having said all this…we are really lovely chaps and are very affectionate once we get to know you.  We are very talkative and enjoy a good chat with people! Rupert and I are best buddies and we love to curl up together so it was a huge relief when the nice people at The Ark found a lovely foster home for us together.  We would have hated to be parted.  The Ark will still look after us as we will have to have regular checkups at the vet to see if we are doing OK and of course we will continue with our special diet so that we don’t get any tummy upsets.  We feel really lucky that someone is prepared to have us stay with them and you can be sure that we will be really loving and good companions.
