This is Ruby.
Ruby is our first Meowie Curie kitty To be welcomed into the big cat family here at BCWR.
Ruby is 13 years old and has spent the last 2 weeks in a cattery whilst her owner has been in the hospice.
We have spent time with Rubys owner so we can understand her wishes and the individual needs of Ruby.
MEOWIE CURIE is our latest community project.
Terminal and lifelimiting illness and the grief it carries is something very close to my heart.
Most people know some one who is facing a daily battle with serious illness.
MEOWIE- Curie is out new community project which we hope will make a huge impact on those dealing with extremely difficult circumstances……..
We work exclusively with patients at Bradford Marie Curie Centre, as we understand the devastation of a terminal illness coupled with the uncertainty of what will happen to an owners loved pet when they can no longer care for them.
We understand that it is not always possible for family members to take on the responsibility of their relatives’ pets and that some patients do not have any relatives.
Where possible we speak with the patients, (and family and staff if appropriate) to offer assurance and make plans to care for their cat when the time arises.
We aim to spend time with patients, find out as much as we can about the cats’ lifestyle, needs and routine and we can be contacted 24/7 to deal with any urgent concerns.
Life is busy here at BCWR- Compassion Pride and Respect (CPR) is the foundations on which we are built upon and what keeps the heart of BCWR beating.
