The recent weeks have been tough for Feline Friends. First we had a spate of pet cats being abandoned through absolutely no fault of their own. These included a very sweet friendly white and tortoise-shell girl, about a year old, who was dumped at the vet's.

She is very affectionate and has obviously been someone's pet.

Then there was the gorgeous ginger and white adult cat abandoned on the street. Cuddly and great with children, both these cats ended up living in cages for weeks as we tried to home them. We are still trying, so let us know if you can help.

Then we were on the lookout for some really special owners who would devote the time and effort to homing cats such as Reggie, a lovely adult cat found with a poorly tail which had to be docked as it was badly infected. Or Ricky, a six-month-old ginger kitten, who was abandoned on the street with a bad abscess on his back. Both cats are now fit and well and ready for a new home.

Then there was Bobcat, a five-month-old brown tabby kitten who was found with an elastic band around the base of his tail, which caused it to die. Sadly the tail had to be removed, but this has not stopped him being a friendly and lovable little man who deserves a chance in life.

In Abu Dhabi we had Eric, a beautiful white male Angora-Persian cross who is approximately two-years-old. This boy needs a place to stay but can be an indoor cat as sadly he is deaf, although this does not in any way stop him leading a normal life.

And then there was Virage, a very special female kitten just three-months-old. She had severe cat flu when she was just a few weeks old and, although she is no longer suffering from the flu, it has damaged her eyes. She can see but not very well, but what she loses in sight she makes up with love. This little girl adores to be cuddled and is fantastic with children, but does need an indoor life as she wouldn't be able to venture outside safely.
