Felix and Squinty

Felix the White and Ginger kitten came to us on the 28/8/2017 with his sister, they were 6 weeks old.

The sister found a home. We had a lot of applications for Felix but nothing came of it.

I had developed a bond with Felix and would socialise with him daily for a few minutes. I looked forward to his warm greetings in the morning.

On the 5/9/2017 Squinty White and Black kitten was handed over to Menzi in Impophomeni.

After a quarantine period he was brought up for Adoption. He was a shy kitten not given to displays of affection.

Over time a bond developed between them. I informed the staff that should Felix not find a home he will become part of our family and join the other office cats.

An application had been submitted for Squinty.

Felix was released on the 19th February and spent the night with the other office cats in the common room. He was readily accepted by them.

The next morning he was back at his cage engaging with Squinty. The reunion was very touching they spent the day wrapped around each other, grooming, sleeping

and eating together.

The application for Squinty was not successful. We took a decision to also make Squinty a part of the family. It would have been cruel to separate them.

They have fitted in with the gang and bring us such joy. We all agree that it is wonderful having children running around.

They are very active but come nap time they curl up in each others arms.

The ease with which they adapted to the hurly burly of kennel activity, indicates our hands on engagement with our animals up for adoption.

Anne Smith - SPCA Plant Lady

Anne SmithAnne has been the driving force behind establishing our Gardeners’ Corner, firstly at Campbell Road and later at our Fundraising Centre in Main Street Howick.   She has been with us through thick and thin, planning, executing and running our highly successful plant nursery.   Anne not only sources plants from nurseries at very special prices, she also goes to Kloof SPCA to fetch loads of plants donated from their nursery and she also pots out slips, cuttings, divisions of huge matted plants and other material that is donated by gardeners.  Whatever else she does with her magic wand to produce the huge stock of fine plants, seedlings, shrubs and trees to sell at competitive prices I wouldn’t know but the measure of her success is in the band of loyal supporters who always look for their garden requirements at the SPCA Centre before they even think of going anywhere else.

Lots of people talk to animals.... Not very many listen, though.... That's the problem. ~Benjamin Hoff, The Tao of Pooh

We support ONLY the circuses that DO NOT use animals of any kind to entertain the crowds. The use of wild animals in Circus acts is inhumane
