Candy & Cruz - Coming to UK From Qatar - RESERVED for Jenifer & John R of Bromley, Kent
We have limited details for this incoming pair of Persians from Qatar; they have been abuse cases and have come through a lot together so must be homed as a pair. The info below is what we have received from Qatar.
The situation is that the cats will be sent to UK as soon as a home (i.e. a suitable, approved home) has reserved them. There will be two fee strands for incoming cats from Qatar; one, you will need to pay an adoption fee to Chapelhouse Persian Rescue to cover our own costs (in line with usual practice) and a % of this fee will be sent to Qatar to the rescue there.
On the photo - Candy is right, with copper eyes.
Cruz is left, with blue eyes.
And second, we will need to raise separate funds to send to Qatar, to further contribute towards their export and all the preparations that were necessary in order to get them ready to leave Qatar, such as vaccinations, blood tests, coat clipping, and identichips. The adopter is not expected to fund both these costs and the costs of the adoption fee unless they wish.
The future for cats like Candy and Cruz in Qatar is very bleak; if we do not manage to get cats like this into UK they will have nowhere suitable to go, because good homes don't happen in Qatar very often and there are up to 68 cats needing to come to UK that are already on the rescue's list (we will be listing these as and when they are fit to travel). They will not need quarantine as they will fit the criteria for the Pet Travel Scheme, and all necessary work will have been done in Qatar already.
Please note it is now fairly simple to bring cats into UK, eve from Qatar, so if you reserve them then they are ready to be shipped and we can provide more details at that point.
Both cats had appalling backgrounds but here is, as an example, a snippet of Cruz's story:
"Cruz was thrown from a car window on the corniche in the middle of traffic in the middle of summer. It took until 2 am to catch him and we pulled him from the bonnet of a landcruiser, hence the name".
"Candy has been his girlfriend and he was really quite timid until she came along. She is around 3 to 4 years and he is around 2. Just so you know all of our cats are fully vaccinated, chipped and spayed/neutered.
Photos are shown with medium length coats and directly after haircuts. The Qatar rescue keeps them shaved".
Post adoption stories and photos will be essential if you adopt Candy and Cruz, since saving cats from dire situations like this and then preparing them for new homes, and exporting them overseas is really quite distressing for their Qatar rescuers; please only adopt if willing to stay in contact with the Qatar rescuers.
They are all registered in the state of Qatar in the rescuer's name so adoptive parents will need to provide details and complete adoption formalities online; it is a simple process!
