Please could you help us to care for our Fospice Cats?

Sadly, some of the cats that come through our doors have a very limited lifespan, because they have a terminal condition, or are very old.
We don't want these cats to spend any more of the precious time they have left in our cattery so we put them into 'Fospice Care', this is hospice care with one of our lovely foster carers. 
They will stay in our Fospice Care for as long as they have a quality of life.
Due to their age or illness - we know that being with our loving foster carers is absolutely the best place for them to spend their last days.
By sponsoring a Fospice Cat you will be helping us to cover the costs of their medical treatment and care, for as long as they need us. It will help us to pay for special medical diets, medication and any other care they require. It will help us keep them comfortable and happy for the rest of their days, and will really make a huge difference to their end of life care.
Meet our present Fospice Cats


Fospice cat at Yorkshire Cat Rescue 

Sebby is 16 and came to us after her owner had passed away. We have been to the vets with her so many times after noticing she was unwell and we later found out she was in stage 2 of kidney disease. Sebby is also 16 and with around a years prognosis we decided it would be best for her to stay in fospice. She is currently coping well in her fospice home and is a happy girl. We have had issues with getting her to eat as she is quite fussy! We are just so glad that she can spend her final months or even years with us in a happy home receiving the best fospice care. 


Old black cat at Yorkshire Cat Rescue

Sooty is 18 years old, deaf and has stage 2 kidney failure. However that doesn't stop her from bringing out her playful side! Due to her age and her illness she has been placed in a fospice home where she will spend the rest of her twilight years.

We hope any future fospice cats have many more happy times in their foster homes and we at YCR are committed to their care until it is the right time to say goodbye.  The love and comfort our fospice foster carers give to these cats is priceless and we are happy to pay for everything that they need. It is a small part of what we do as a re-homing centre, but it means so much to these very special cats.  Your help with this appeal will help us care for them and mean we can continue to do this for other cats in the future. Thank you and big purrs from Sebby & Sooty.
