Are all cats micro-chipped here - just found a young cat whuch seems to be lost as it looks well cared for but has been hanging outside my flat for a few days - I have checked with all the neighbours and he/she does not belong to them nor do they recognise it. Is it worth taking it to the vet to see if it is micro-chipped or should I call the local rescue centre? If it does not belong to anyone then I will keep it but want to check first.
Hello, We have 2 cats who are 6 years old. Because of my work, the cats have been in Mexico, lived in Vienna and are now in The Hague. They are really nice, friendly, healthy and we love them very much. The problem we have is that our baby resulted with a strong allergy to the cats (he has strong asthma) and we cannot have them at home. We have a garden, but it is freezing and we really do not what to do. We are ready to give them in adoption so they can live in a family who loves them and give take care of them, because we believe it is the best for them. Many thanks in advance for your reply.

Help! Our next door neighbour's dog barks almost non-stop all day, while they're at work - every time someone walks past, in fact, which is often, as we live in a busy street! I had a word with them a couple of weeks ago - explained what was happening. They seem quite understanding - BUT nothing has changed! Can I report it to the local authority, or the police or someone?
Now that we have got settled we would like to get a dog, would like a fairly active one and a medium to largish size. Don't really want anything too fluffy (my husband wants somethiong he can walk without looking silly (as he puts it). Needs to have a good temperment and from a registered breeder and would get on with our two cats, Suggestions please.
Hi I am new to the area and would like to do some paid or voluntary work preferably with animals. Does anyone know if there are any animal shelters, animal rescue centres local to Gronigen. I do have a car so travelling within reason would be managable. I love all animals big or small, well behaved or challenging, wiling to get my hands dirty. I have my own 3 bed appartment so could consider fostering or sitting for pets if not too large or noisy. I do have a small resue dog (scraggy)myself so would need to work around caring for her too.Look forward to any informationKind regardsMegan

Hello I just wanted to share with you my story with a very dedicated charity called Kattenbersherming Nederland in South Holland which rescues cats. My old cat unfortunately passed away recently, very sad. I went to visit a volunteer who has been raising kittens and younger cats from her home. A lovely kitten called Kelly joined our family yesterday. She has been bottle fed by this lady since she was a few weeks old when she lost her mother. At this lady's she lived with another mother cat and her kittens. This cat family taught her basic cat things like grooming, being houseclean, playing in groups, etc... She is chipped, vaccinated, spayed and was under good vet care. Considering that my last few cats have been elderly cats with challenging personalities that acquaintances could not keep anymore, I am absolutely in love with the dainty purring kitten on my lap as I am typing this. she seems so adaptable and play gently. Kattenbescherming volunteers also petsit cats if you are on holiday. It helps prevent that people abandon their pets and it raises funds for their general cause. They have more cats for adoption at the moment http://www.kattenbescherming.nl/katkitten-zoekt-thuis/ Some of those featured have just found a home but they have more not posted yet because they are under the 13 weeks. You can meet them and see them interact with other cats and humans and reserve them. You always have to sign a contract and stay in touch with them if there are issues and if you just want to share how well the cat is faring with you. Kattenbeschering can always use financial gifts if you are into cats! http://www.kattenbescherming.nl/katkitten-zoekt-thuis/ They were looking for a volunteer to translate one of their website pages into English. Anyone interested? I am not a native speaker of English and my English is more American than British. Have a good day Lucie

Hello everyone! My family and I have just moved here from Miami, Florida. We are in need of a kennel or a dog-lover who would be willing to board our lovely, well mannered mutt for a few weeks. Does anyone have any ideas of reputable kennels, preferably in Delft, so we can visit her and give her extra walks? The dog is a 3 year-old, spayed female, about 65 pounds. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Nan McClain
Hi, I am travelling to Rijswijk for a month with my little god. Unfortunaely I have just discovered that I'll have to take a business trip to Belgium during my first weekend In Netherlands. Could you please advise whether there are any boarding kennels or pet hotels in Rijswijk or Hague who could accommodate my babe for the weekend (17th to 19th or 20th of April 2009) ? Thank you and hope for the replies, Anastasia
My parents have a house in Spain and I am planning to go and stay with them for the summer holidays, driving down there. I have a cat and want to take her with me, as I can't get someone to look after her for that length of time. Are any guidelines I should follow? I can't see there would be an issue taking her down but what about bringing her back into Holland?
