It has been a very quiet month indeed
with little going on except endless numbers of cats
being brought in for one reason or another.
So very few visitors but we seem to
have been incredibly busy with other things.
A little cat was brought in – it has a
very severe case of mites and is very thin.
The cat has been receiving Ivermectin
(heartworm dawa) injections and is well on the way to recovery.
This and many other kinds of problems
come in to us on a regular basis.
Some of the cases we can sort out,
but, sadly others we can’t.
We do what we can.
We had a reasonably good month with
regard to re-homing but we do still have a number of lovely dogs
and cats looking for loving homes.
This month we have also had a number
of calls regarding dogs that have been abandoned by their
This is very sad as all they have to
do is contact the KSPCA and bring their dogs here.
I don’t even know how people can
abandon a dog/cat and then sleep well!

We received a report about a camel in
the middle of Links Road, Nyali with all its legs tethered.
This is not the first time that we
have had to deal with camels on the road.
Luckily, we know the owner and where
to find him.
Would you believe it but we have had
termites in our lovely new concrete cupboard – they munched all
our fantastic pile of old newspapers – never knew newspapers
tasted so good!
So, once again, if you have any old
newspapers we can give them a very good home now that we have
dealt with the termite problem in the cupboard.
We also have termites in our ceiling
which will have to be dealt with and most of the ceiling will
now have to be replaced.
The ceiling is actually very old
indeed and is long overdue for replacing.
Our poor Chief Inspector nearly had a
heart attack when this large chunk of ceiling fell down whilst
he was in the office and his back turned – Rudisha wouldn’t have
We are looking for donations for this.
Two of our night dogs decided to have
a difference of opinion which resulted in the dog equivalent of
fisticuffs and teeth and we had to call our vet to come and
stitch one of them up.
He had a nasty hole in his face.
The one who came off worse was the one
who started it!
Is that what one calls Karma?
I’m not sure that he has learnt a

We have managed to put in two new
water lines to our kennels.
This makes it a lot easier for
cleaning and disinfecting the kennels each morning and a lot
quicker as they don’t have to cart buckets of water around.
We were given water tanks and we want
to get these installed for the fresh water as we have continual
problems with the mains water supply.
Purchase, the staff and all our wonderful
helpers and our many resident furry residents.
