C-L-A-W-S Domino


The help line rang :  it was the owner of a local cattery asking for our help in trapping a cat that had turned up at his premises.   He suspected it was a feral from a local stables where it had been placed to control the rodent population.

It was trapped that same day and, as a temporary measure, was put in a pen at Bear Cottage pending its onward transmission to a farm.

It soon became apparent that it was not a feral but yet another abandoned domestic as within a few days it was out and about in its pen making friends with its carers.  

We gave it time to settle and then took it to the vet to have an MOT and to see if it were chipped : it wasn’t.    It was a young unneutered male about 2 years old, fit and healthy.

We called him DOMINO.  He will stay with C.L.A.W.S.   With more time and intensive work with his carers we are hopeful that he will be ready for adoption.

We are wondering if he was, in fact, a "feral” from the stables or whether it was a case of mistaken identity and we had trapped domestic that had strayed from his home.
If the former it is not the only instance of a cat being placed as a feral that should not have been.
