The number of cats TOLFA Animal Hospital treats has increased five times from 2015 to 2022. Last year we admitted 358 cats to the hospital, and treated a further 184 cats through our street treatments. We want to install twelve new stainless steel cages in our cat house for cats undergoing treatment. At the moment we don't have suitable facilities in the cat house and the cats under treatment are sharing space in a puppy ward. We can also employ a dedicated cat nurturer to help care for them.
The number of cats we are called upon to rescue has increased in the last few years. This rise is the result of an increased awareness of cat welfare in the community, with more people caring about cats. However, we no longer have suitable space to accommodate all the cats that are sick, injured and receiving medical treatment. At the moment they are kept in cages in our puppy ward. With new stainless steel cages installed in the cat house we can improve the care and conditions for these cats.
It will be more effective to have cats that are under treatment housed in new cages in the cat house. Stainless steel cages are more hygienic, easy to clean, and provide the sick cats with greater privacy and ability to hide, than the cages currently in use. This will improve the care we're able to give to sick and injured cats. We will also employ a dedicated cat nurturer to attend specifically to the welfare needs and comfort of the cats.
In 2022 TOLFA helped 13,970 animals through our Rescue & Care Project. We have two animal ambulances working seven days a week, as well as vehicle dedicated to providing treatments on the street. For the unowned animals in the area we are their last hope when they become sick or injured. With this project we can provide 12 specialist cages for cats that need urgent medical treatment, as well as employ a dedicated cat nurturer to provide the love and extra care these cats need.
