Meet Costa. 7 months old. New in tonight an emergency one. I was on my way to Birstall to pick a kitten up and got a call. Cat with a bad head tilt. I diverted back to go get him and asked Birstall if they could see him. He has a perforated ear drum. Cause. Well can be a few things. Trauma. A fall. Being fallen on. Who knows but the head tilt might now be permanent. The cat was owned but not by the lady I picked him up from. She took him back in after homing him to a family member and she contacted us straight away. Which was the right thing to do. Xxx
I didn’t like seeing him in pain but we have meds for him now and painkillers.
Good morning we have a mum and kittens in gipton that need bringing to Henry’s mum is in a garden I’ve been told kittens are there with there can someone go and check for me and inbox me for details also have we any fosters that are going to be free thank you ... See MoreSee Less
Kendal update who is actually a boy. My skill at sexing is poor. 😂😂😂
It’s not what we thought it was it’s something called Felicola subrostratus which is a biting louse. We made the decision to shave him to get the eggs off as he had so many on him. And they were not easy to get off. Helga got one of the critters and let me have a look under the microscope. Pic in comments . I was like. Arghhhhh look at it. I post things like this for information as people then know about things like this. Kendal is brighter his gums are pinking back up and he’s eating and drinking well now. All this bedding and bed I have thrown away and replaced and I’ll continue to comb him. Fipronil has been used but this will be repeated but with a stronghold next week. Hopefully this will get rid of all these mites.
Basically he was being eaten alive the pale gums are a sign of anaemia. So glad he was found. I worry about others where is his mum and other siblings 😞 why was he just outdoors he’s not a feral kitten xxx ... See MoreSee Less
And before I go to bed. I took a still shot of me eating my evening meal tonight. This happens every time I dare to eat. The look of that cat which is always of disgust he kept tapping me on my shoulder to let me know he was there. Believe me those eyes bore into the back of my head. #Kane... See MoreSee Less
I’ve been daft on my own page tonight but I’m back serious again. Meet Kendall. She came in tonight. Found outside.
I spoke to one of the vets and also Helga tonight. We believe she has something called cheyletiella mite which is also called ‘walking dandruff’ it’s a mite. I’ve not come across this before. But hopefully she can be treated. I have her booked in at 8.30am tomorrow to be seen by a vet and although she’s eaten a little I’m constantly giving her water every hour. I come across things I haven’t seen in rescue and it’s a learning curve for me also. I’ve read up on it now and it’s scary. I have used gloves and an apron and throughly washed my hands. I bathed her with gloves on and it’s heartbreaking that I cannot touch her. It’s sad. She’s sad. I’m sad also on why she’s in the state she is. 😢😢😢 ... See MoreSee Less
Meet Zakki who was found in a car engine today. Marla was in the right place at the right time. Xx
Lucky boy had been heard crying.
Welcome Zakki to Henry’s. In with me at the moment. He’s a little hissy still but has eaten very well poor lad was very hungry. He has a little rounded belly but will be wormed tomorrow. He’s been flea treated. He’s around 9/10 weeks old.
I am doing another raffle. To raise funds for two kittens who are in at Birstall today and staying in tonight for monitoring. The news is good but out of hours care is not cheap so I’m running this raffle to help with their bill. As I don’t bring them out until I know all is well. Xx
A fabulous hamper made by Anna Duthie. Along with a wonderful Snuffle mat also made by Anna. A fabulous home made picture made out of Sea glass donated by louise’s lovely friend. A broach donated by Angie and I found a lovely key ring which was also donated.
1-100 £2 a number for all these fabulous prizes.
I’ll be drawing the other two raffles tonight too. Well once I have had my tea x ... See MoreSee Less
A pic sent from the vets. Wound is looking good at the bottom but still not as well as they hoped at the top. I’ll know more tomorrow when the vet looking after him see’s him again. Xxxxxx ... See MoreSee Less
Please please share to get these pensioners a new home and a sofa of their own. Xxxx
Geoffrey and also Topsy Lopsy. Both in their elder years. Geoffrey we would say around 14/15 and Topsy Lopsy between 14/16 years of age. Both find them selves in rescue. Currently in with two different foster ladies.
All they need is a retirement home. A home where they will just be able to eat, sleep and have a fuss. I’m advertising them together but just because they are both in their older years. It’s so sad they find theirselves in rescue and not everyone would take an older one on and I understand why. Would love to see them get a home offer. Topsy Lopsy gets on fine with other cats too. Geoffrey is in foster on his own but has been a dream for his foster mum.
Do you know anyone looking for an older cat perhaps an older relative or a friend who may not be looking for a younger cat. Xxx
Ok so the Jollies post which I shared and asked to like a comment this was posted for local rescues near St Helen’s only although that wasn’t clear in the post and a lot of people kicked off and made negative comments. I made a comment that it was a bit misleading but any charity was deserving of it. Gill Baron’s comment received the most likes so thank you for liking that comment. And thanks to Gill and everyone else who commented.
Jollies have just rang me the store manager at St Helen’s. The Wakefield Branch. The Leeds branch and also the Selby branch will be collecting for Henry’s Haven for a donation of food. And will contact me in due course. Chyrs the St helens shop manager contacted the area manager to mention our rescue and a donation will be made to us. Xxx
This is fab news and I’m gonna have to make some room for this. Depending how much there is. We will need to pick up from each store. Xxx ... See MoreSee Less
Meet Daisy and her daughter Lily. Daisy is 9. Lily is 4. A really sad owner surrender in. Lady has had to move and the new landlord will not accept pets. No negative comments please. This happens and people have to move and these two have been absolutely loved and looked after so well. And I collected them and their owner was very upset. All I could say was and assure we will find them a home together.
Meet Jewel. A small kitten found in a garden earlier today. Around five weeks old I would say. Could be from a feral mum as the area she came from has a lot of them about. She’s eaten which is great. Has what looks like possible cat flu. Eyes and nose all bunged up but I have cleaned her up. Xxx
Ok I’m in desperate need of foster homes for adults. We have plenty of fosters who can take on kittens but adults I find harder to place. And just yesterday I’ve been asked to help five adults who need rescue. Two are coming in today. But I’m struggling for space. We have adult adoption forms coming in all the time so getting them into a home is something we do well. It’s always been harder to place adults but our rehome success for adults is good so you wouldn’t have them that long.
We provide all you need and always ask if you can do vet runs with your own foster kitty. If not we can help out with the team of people who help transport to bramley. Xxx
The website is currently not working but I’m working on getting that sorted out. The form for fostering is on there which I’ll link when the site is back up. Xxx
Hi, I’m TC! I’m a male tabby and about 8 years old.
I like: scritches behind my ears and under my chin, licking the gravy/jelly off my food then coming back for the meaty chunks later, laser pointers, sleeping for 25 hours a day
But I don’t like: being picked up, Mrs Brown’s Boys, thunderstorms
TC would make a wonderful companion for anyone, he loves being fussed and will headbutt you when he wants attention. We don’t know what he’s like with other cats, dogs, or children.
When TC’s elderly owner passed away her children would visit to feed him every day until the house was sold. This took some months and he was likely on his own for most of that time. When the sale completed he came to Henry’s, and he was whisked off to Bramley Vets4Pets to have a hematoma taken care of, which is why he has a floppy ear. His owner’s children contributed to the costs for this so we know he was very loved.
TC is not a lap cat, I’ve tried but he won’t have it, instead he likes to curl up on his blanket on the sofa, sometimes he’ll even lay right next to me with one paw on my leg, but that’s it. If you let him he’ll sleep on the bed with you, and he’s never woken me up at silly o’clock.
He’s such a lovely boy with a wonderful purr, he doesn’t jump up windowsills or kitchen tops, no bathroom accidents, and he’s just gorgeous. He deserves all the love in the world. ... See MoreSee Less
Our hope is this gorgeous boy can come home tomorrow and by home I mean to his new home.
He has a new mum. And that lovely lady is Louise who will offer him a retirement indoor home where I know one hundred percent he will live out the rest of his days indoors. Loved. Cherished and most of all pain and suffering free. I could not have asked for a more perfect home for him. I’ve known louise some time now and I was overjoyed when louise asked if he can come and live at her wonderful home. Xxx
Snowy you have just landed on your paws well and truly. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ ... See MoreSee Less

No real update on Danny. He’s still in at Birstall the top part of the wound has started to die off a little the bottom part is ok. No next steps as yet I’ll speak to the vet who is looking after him tomorrow. It’s made more complex with him being FIV positive. I’ll update tomorrow when I know more. Xxx ... See MoreSee Less
This has been written by the lovely Louise Jane Byrne and really does say it all and how many people have an involvement in the running of Henry’s. It’s a massive team which includes all the supporters too. I love this poem so much. Very talented Louise not only in saving those tinies who come in to the baby hogs too. But a poet too. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
To donators big and donators small The cats in the rescue say thanks to you all
To the trappers who run around here and there To those who post fundraisers, others then share
Some do the vet runs in hours and out To the auction ladies we give a bit shout.
Fosterers helping with kittens and cats To those who take ferals to keep down the rats.
People make blankets, donate prizes too Second hand items and some even new.
Donations of blankets and towels are great. To use in cat carriers or use in a crate.
Some rattle buckets in stores for cash. Some transport kittens when they're needed to dash.
There are lots of others behind the scenes. You know who you are and what your help means.
Henry's a team and we need you all. Without your help we would crumble and fall.
So this is a thank you for all that you do. We couldn't manage without all of you x THANK YOU ALL. ... See MoreSee Less
