Smokey update


Despite trying all we could, unfortunately Smokey went down hill very quickly on 07/01/2021. He had been improving and eating more, however on Thursday he deteriorated and started to struggle to breathe.

On 01/01/2021, Zara ('Foxa') was invited to an interview on BBC Radio Devon, to answer some questions about Hector's House and the work that we do.

New boys of the week are Leonard and Smokey. They were both reported to us as strays, and were incredibly poorly. Leonard had been coming into a shop in Dartmouth for a few weeks, and was reported to us just before Christmas.



Herbie was reported to us as a potential stray, as he was spotted outside a lot in all weathers. One of our volunteers went out to scan him, to check for a microchip, and he was microchipped, but the owners gave him up to us as he didn't get on with the family dog.

Ghost came to us a couple of months ago as an unneutered stray as his owner had sadly passed away. Ghost was very scared and had become rather ill. With the help of Feline Network, we worked together and rehabilitated him, ready to go to his forever home.



Tommy was abandoned by his owners and was subsequently being fed by an elderly gentleman. Unfortunately, the gentleman died in the summer and Tommy had been living on the streets ever since.



Marmaduke was one of our quickest traps ever!

Since our launch at the end of August, Hector's House has been inundated with cats needing our help, which shows just how desperate the need for this service is! Please read below for a summary of the work we've done between September and December.
