14 year old Lacey is looking for a perfect retirement home, after her owner became too unwell to care for her any more.
Lacey is a gorgeous, gentle and friendly girl ...... she has plenty of love yet to give...... all she needs is a warm, quiet home, a lap to sit on and lots of cuddles!! She has lived as an only cat so we don’t know how she will react to other cats, or dogs.
Due to her age, any future vet bills will be covered by the rescue.
Lacey is currently in foster care in the Yardley area, and you will need to travel in order to meet her there.
For further information please contact Loraine on 07948 415578...... Loraine works full time & she will absolutely get back to you if she’s unable to take your call immediately.... just leave a message. As usual there will be a home check.

A message from Mel:
Well here we are 2020, and although only half way through January, cats and kittens are already coming into the rescue. We’ve had a mummy and kittens taken from a garden living under a shed, 2 kittens abandoned at a scrapyard, l white unneutered male cat living on the streets of Birmingham, a huge unneutered tabby male, and yet another unneutered boy who had had a huge abscess on his face which had left a massive infected hole in his cheek, now treated and neutered at the fantastic Southcrest Vets.
2019 proved to be a particularly busy and stressful year with more kittens being born than l can ever remember. The mommy cats, no more than kittens themselves kept coming. Some were as young as 6 months old and one little girl only 11 months had 9 kittens. Imagine feeding that lot😢
My loyal team of volunteers have been working hard fundraising and rescuing cats off the streets, some of them doing this whilst holding down full time jobs.
We need to fundraise almost every weekend to keep on top of our ever increasing vet bills. The more cats we rescue the more vet bills we have. Cat flu, enteritis, viruses, neutering, vaccines and microchipping soon mount up.
The three fayres we hold at Beoley Village Hall have been very successful, as are our Quiz night's , and thank you to everyone who supported us at these events.
Our £1.00 Club is doing well, but we still need to increase its members so if you know of anyone who is willing to donate £1.00 per month, we would be eternally grateful, as would our ever growing band of rescues, especially the older cats who are harder to find homes for and therefore spend so much longer with us.
£1 Club details are in the comments below. 😻
This money makes a huge difference in helping pay for surgeries, such as amputation when legs are too badly injured to save, or from birth defects. There have also been lots of eye removals ..... the result of eye infection being neglected and severe cat flu. Nothing is ever refused treatment if we can save the animal, no matter what the cost we will raise the money somehow. So as you can see the hard work can never stop and neither can the everyday running of the rescue, which is so important as everything has to be kept spotlessly clean to stop any infection spreading, and to make sure all our rescues are happy here.
We will keep you updated on our Website and Facebook sites as and when we have dates for our fundraisers. In the meantime you can continue to support us by adding both kitten, and adult food, into our collection bins, which are in Tesco’s and Morrison’s (Redditch). We’re continually grateful for these much needed, and appreciated, donations.
Although this is Redditch Cat Rescue we are rescuing more and more cats, especially ferals from Birmingham including areas as far as Sutton Coldfield, Halesowen, Aston and surrounding areas. We never refuse if we can help.
Feral cats are neutered, flead and wormed and treated for any problems before being relocated to stables, where they can have a better life with regular food, and freedom, to live the life they are used to.
So to everyone who has supported us throughout 2019 either by giving money, food, items to sell or craft made for our fayres, I would like to wish you all a happy and healthy 2020, and to say a huge thank you...... two very small words but from the heart.
Mel and all at Redditch Cat Rescue.
Last year you helped us rehome 498 cats and kittens and relocate 307 ferals and unhomeable cats.
WELL DONE EVERYONE 💕💕💕😺 ...
