Crystal & Furla reunited at the Bridge

Furla and Crystal came into the rescue as tiny kittens. They’d had a terrible start in life but despite this went on to be two ‘naughty tortie’ girls with massive ‘catitude’. They were homed quite close together and their owners always kept in touch. Furla left for the bridge in 2015 and Crystal joined her in 2019. Their lives were short and very sweet (although both went missing for over a week leaving their owners beside themselves with worry before they turned  up unfazed and safe and sound!) We like to think of them playing and purring at heavens gate until the time comes for them to rejoin their families and cross the rainbow bridge together.

sleep tight little ones –  we miss you so much  xx

Crystal reunited with Furla at the rainbow bridge – 2 naughtie torties at heavens gate

We were so sad to hear that Crystal had passed away. She came to us with three of her siblings as a tiny kitten in dreadful circumstances. Sister Furla left for the bridge in 2015 and we like to think of them reunited and playing together.

Furla and Crystal went to homes quite close to each other and their owners always kept in touch. Both girls were shy and a little suspicious to start with due to the sad start in life they had before London Persian Rescue stepped in.

Both were also very naughty (like all torties they had massive ‘catititude’) and both went missing for over a week but were found unfazed and safe and sound after their respective owners were beside themselves with worry for over a week.

Here’s Crystal the queen of the sofa  – sleep tight little one your family miss you.


Charlie uses up most of his 9 lives before age of one

Charlie came to us seriously ill. He had a raging infection and could barely breath.

As a tiny charity reliant totally on rehoming fees, grant funding and our small but passionate group of volunteers cases like  Charlie are the ones we dread most.

We knew that without emergency treatment from our vet  Rachel , Charlie would die. We also knew that his ongoing treatment would be extensive and expensive – our limited funds would be virtually wiped out. We thought about our mission to save Persians and we thought about how old Charlie was – just one year, and so putting all other thoughts to one side we told our vet to do everything possible to save him.

Here you can see Charlie on his nebulizer and curled up behind his best friend Bertie.

He’s such a sweetie and never complains about, what must seem to him very frightening treatment.  He loves Bertie and curls up to him for comfort. He’s also very cheeky and has learned to guard the food bowl and grab premier position on Barbara’s bed.

He is slowly recovering but we’re not sure he’s out of the woods just yet, and we know we can’t ever rehome him incase the issues arise again.

We appealed for help and over £600 was donated by kind and generous people – we want to say a  huge thanks to them. We were down to our last couple of hundred pounds and had to think seriously about whether we could continue in our work.

If you could help (and any amount however small really helps) please donate via the donate  button or visit our  just giving page – every single penny is used to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome Persians and other pedigree kitties in distress.
