Settling In a Rescue Cat

At Blackwater vets we are strong advocates of wanting every pet to find their forever home of happiness, no matter how many attempts it takes.

We are happy to support rescue pets and have often taken in animals in need and found them their forever homes ourselves.

Sometimes these animals have come to us in urgent need of medical attention, or it may be that they have been found straying, or the environment they are living in is not suitable.

We feel that offering a rescue pet a new start at life is the most rewarding experience, but getting it right is so important.

If you are considering welcoming a rescue cat into your home, please see the advice below;

We look forward to welcoming your new family member to our practice and are on hand for help and advice both on healthcare but also on overall wellbeing.
