Stray cat found in Bungay

This beautiful older lady was found as a stray by a member of the public who was concerned about her health and well-being. Thankfully she was collected by emergency frontline RSPCA (England & Wales) staff who brought her in for essential veterinary care and treatment.

Her claws on her front foot had grown into her paw pad, which the vet said was one of the worst cases they have ever seen and has been causing her a great deal of pain. It’s always hard to see cases like this but thankfully she is now getting the love, care and veterinary treatment she deserves. She was found in Bungay but if anyone recognises her or can help us reconnect her with her owners please can get in touch as she might have been missing for sometime. Whilst most of the world stops, the team at RSPCA (England & Wales) keep attending emergencies and our Animal Welfare Team are still assisting the Inspectorate with cases like these.

If you can help us to help more animals like this lovely lady, please do

Kitten Naming Competition Update!

*Cuteness alert* We have a kitten update!

You may have seen our recent update about Puma, a gorgeous black cat who came from a multi-cat household and gave birth to four healthy babies. We are happy to say that these little bundles of fluff are doing very well and have already gotten much bigger!

We asked for your help naming them and we had so many lovely suggestions for what to call these little bundles of fluff we just couldn’t decide on so have decided to put it to you, our wonderful supporters!

We’ve narrowed it down to four options, so have a look and let us know which names you think we should go for! The result will be published here on Friday evening! 😸

🐾 Ash, Coal, Cinder, Ember
🐾 Neve, Harry, Sarah and Edward (NHS England)
🐾 Neo, Morpheus, Trinity, Niobe
🐾 Cordelia, Viola, Tybalt and Mercutio

We’d also still really appreciate any donations, big or small, to help us look after these beautiful kittens. We have lots of animals in our care currently including other nursing mumma cats and want to give them the love and security they deserve. To donate, simply click here or you can send us items for our animals through our Amazon Wishlist
We’ll be giving regular updates about the new arrivals in our newsletter, so please subscribe if you want to learn more about them and watch them grow!

Help us find the purrfect names for our latest kitten litter

*Cuteness alert* We need your help! Last night the animals in our care increased by four as one of our pregnant cats gave birth!

Puma, a gorgeous black cat who came from a multi-cat household, gave birth to four healthy babies with the help of her foster Mum and our Animal Welfare Manager Chloe. It took over three hours but she’s taken to motherhood very quickly and was soon cleaning and feeding them, giving them all the care and attention they needed.
These little bundles of fluff have a long way ahead to reach adoption stage as newborns are particularly vulnerable to various challenges of life. They are under a watchful eye and hopefully all four will make it to adoption in the coming months.
She gave birth to two girls and two boys, who are all black and white and are doing very well so far but this is where you can help!
This is where we need you! We want to find the purrfect names for these bundles of cuteness and are looking for your suggestions!

Branch Update – Coronavirus (COVID-19)

“UPDATED 24th March 2020

Due to further public health guidelines and following a statement from the National RSPCA, we have taken the difficult decision to temporarily close our shop network and will no longer be able to carry out adoptions or accept any animals into our care unless through the Inspectorate. 

You will still be able to contact us on the phone (0303 040 1565) or via email (woof@rspcanorwich.org) during our normal opening hours (Monday to Friday, 10​:00am to 4​:00pm) – however we will not be able to carry out adoptions or accept any additional animals into our care. This is ​due to limited resources​, meaning that we need to reserv​e supplies for animals already in our care or ​those brought into us via the RSPCA Inspectorate. If you ​kindly have donations for the animals in our care, please feel free to leave them outside our Longwater offices and we will collect them during opening hours.

This has not been an easy decision to make, especially as we rely heavily on our shops to generate the funds needed to support our vital animal welfare work. However, the safety of our ​staff, volunteers and the wider public is paramount, and we are hopeful that these closures will be short term.

Sadly, we expect to lose many of our vital donations as a result of these shop closures in addition to having already cancelled our vital fundraising events. As a charity, we have always relied on the generosity of kind supporters to enable us to do the work that we do and now, more than ever, we need your help and we can’t do what we do without your support. So, if you are doing more online shopping than usual, you can sign up to EasyFundraising or Amazon Smile and help us raise money for animals without any additional cost to yourself.  Likewise, if you are saving a little extra petrol money at the moment too, please know that your spare change could mean a world of difference to an animal in need.

We understand this may be a difficult time for some of our supporters​, so please be assured that we will still be available for signposting and to offer advice where we are able. We will also continue to run our subsidised neutering voucher programme and offer veterinary financial aid on a case by case basis​, however this is subject to our veterinary partners being available​, so may also change.

As always, if you are concerned about an animal that is sick, injured or distressed please contact the National RSPCA on 0300 1234 999″
