Hundred Acre Farm Grows Once More…

Meet Red. 


Red has been a ‘stray’ for a year now. We have his story by hear say and it goes as follows … 

His original family moved to New Zealand and it was agreed that he moved in with the house next door. 

The house next door moved a year ago and Red would not go with them, apparently he proved allusive shall we say when it came to moving. 

We have known this little character since we moved in to our house 4 years ago. Our kittens and him have been the originals in the neighbourhood. 

Lately we have seen him wandering and looking a little lost. We got speaking to the new lady who moved into Red’s house about him and this is how we found out about him. 

This lady was feeding him and the owners apparently were trying to still get him, we tried to help but Red comes and goes as he pleases as apparently he was always an out door cat.

A year on and we presumed the lady had just adopted Red .. Until he got scruffier & scruffier and his coat matted we started to get concerned and realised it really was some time now since the family moved. 

Then one night Red was out side our back gate crying and we took this opportunity to feed him and get to know him. 

It turns out Red has not been adopted and no one comes to feed him anymore. He has a fully matted coat, an eye infection & hosts a whole commune of fleas – that was from just looking at him with no examination. 

 WELCOME To the Farm Red …. 

Needless to say we then started to build our friendship with Red which didn’t take long. Strangely the once ‘Feral’ cat is extremely friendly and social. 

Once trust was gained Red was taken to the vets and treated with the help of the Vets & RSPCA. We did not want to steel someone’s beloved pet – but I will leave it to your view on whether this is how you treat a beloved pet, hence the envolvement of the RSPCA. 

Red was chipped but all his contact details were not activated. The Vets & The RSPCA decided this was a Wellfare case and that Reds condition was one where he should be rehomed. 

At this point Mr S made the choice that Red was to stay with us. 

Red was an Angel at the vets it took 10 hours to shave him and he tolerated it without being anaesthetized; something the vets were amazed at. He has sores and an eye infection. There is a slight heart murmur but at 12 years old Red is a fighter. 


It’s been very hard to get a picture of our little shaved lion I finally caught him sitting still sleeping. 

It’s been wonderful and heartbreaking seeing him in the house. Red has been acting just like a kitten. He was unsure of carpet under his feet and is just getting used to soft furnishings. 

I’m sure you will see lots of this character on my Instagram feed as he gets better and fits In with #HafLife.
