The surprising match-up came thanks the GSPCA’s links with Association of Dogs and Cats Homes – an organisation made up of over 160 charities across the UK and Ireland.
Last October GSPCA manager Steve Byrne brought three cats back from the RSPCA in Wales, three of which came from multiple cat households.
He said that the local shelter has seen a year-on-year decline of cats needing homes for many years.
‘When we can, we help those on other islands needing our help and when we can, those in charities who are members of the ADCH,’ he said.
‘The pandemic did put a pause on this, but last October we managed, thanks to the help of Condor Ferries, help five cats from the RSPCA in Wales.
‘Three of the cats were extremely nervous as they were from a multiple cat households and had had little to no care so were not used to people or being handled.’
He said that Spook, Casper and Pumpkin were semi-feral.
‘We really struggle to find these types of cats new homes as most enquiries are from those wanting kittens or friendly, family cats,’ he said.
‘Recently Sarah [Breton] from Edible Guernsey visited as they have been thinking of adopting some cats that could live at their site.
‘After following the rehoming procedures, myself and colleague Neil took Casper, Spook and Pumpkin to their new home and they quickly settled into their temporary pen where they will live for some weeks to settle before being let out into the wonderful rural new home.’
Edible Guernsey is a charity aiming to reinvigorate Guernsey’s food landscape.
It has a large glasshouse site in St Peter’s.
Edible Guernsey vice-chairwoman Sarah Breton said it was wonderful to see Spook, Casper and Pumpkin settle so quickly.
‘Edible Guernsey will provide them with a fantastic home and they can help us in lots of ways,’ she said.
‘We will give them the space they need and they can enjoy their new life with those that will look after and care for them.’
GSPCA staff member Neil Hughes was glad the cats were settling in so quickly.
‘We are so grateful to Edible Guernsey, who also gave us a van full of pumpkins to feed the chickens and cockerels needing homes at the GSPCA.’
Mr Byrne said he had seen many horrendous homes that have hoarded animals from his time working at the RSPCA.
‘It is wonderful that the cats are now in a fabulous new home with people who will give them all the love and space they need,’ he said.
‘If anyone would like a farm cat or offer any animal a new home, check out our rehoming procedure or please do get in touch.’
