Cat with flea allergy abandoned in Edinburgh

gypsy the cat

A cat was recently discovered in a pet carrier outside of a home in Gorgie, Edinburgh, suffering with a flea allergy. 

The poor kitty is currently in the care of the Scottish SPCA's Edinburgh and Lothians Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Balerno, and has been named Gypsy. 

Melissa Maitland, Animal Rescue Officer, commented: "The couple heard a knock at their door and expected it to be their takeaway, instead they found Gypsy outside in a pet carrier.

"She was suffering from fleas which had resulted in dermatitis, causing her skin to be very itchy and painful. Thankfully we now have this under control and she is doing much better.

"We are keen to trace the person who abandoned Gypsy as this in itself is an offence and it seems she hadn't been receiving the treatment she needed for her fleas. 

"We'll ensure Gypsy receives the treatment and care she needs and we'll soon find her a loving new home."

Do you have any information that might help the Scottish SPCA find out what happened to Gypsy? If so, get in touch with the Scottish SPCA Animal Helpline on 03000 999 999.

Cat competition!

Win a 'No More Odours' spray!

no more odours

This week we have six fantastic 'No More Odours' sprays to give away, to keep your house smelling fresh and clean, and keep pet odours at bay. 

Correct house training is the first thing we usually face with a new kitten or rescue cat. Getting it right takes patience, consistency, praise and a good odour remover for when things don't go to plan.

'No More Odours' is an innovative and powerful cleaner that neutralises and deodorises urine quickly. 

Created by Furniture Clinic; a company specialising in home care and repair products, 'No More Odours' is guaranteed to work when all others fail. The advanced cleaning formula reacts with the urine, killing the enzymes upon direct contact, destroying the odour and preventing it from reoccurring. 

What's more, regardless of how old the contaminated area is (we've all found those hidden stains, worrying if they're days, weeks or even a months old...), 'No More Odours' will remove the smell.

If used immediately after the stain is formed, it will also remove the stain as well as the smell, completely eradicating all evidence in a few easy steps.

HOW TO WIN A 'NO MORE ODOURS' SPRAY:

If you receive the Your Cat newsletter, there will be a link on the email to update your details and a tick box option to enter the competition. Click here to register to the Your Cat newsletter if you don't already receive it. The closing date is 12pm on Thursday November 27, 2014. Good luck! This competition is for UK residents only.
