Four more of our older cats, ages ranging from 8 -12 years, have now been chosen.  Harvey and Basil had joined us because their owner had moved to a residential home, and Janet because her owner had too many cats.  Caesar (a lovely three-legged ginger boy) who had previously been re-homed by us had come back into care because his owner had moved and her landlord would not let her keep him.  We are delighted that these lovely cats have all settled in their new homes.  Although several of the younger cats have also either been chosen or left for new homes we still have cats available whose ages range from 6 months to 12 years.

When people ring to advise they have a stray cat in their garden we always ask them to make sure it is not someone else's cat. We ask people to check with their neighbours, and if possible, attach a paper collar to the cat, asking owners to contact them. Most cats reported as strays do have homes and it can be very distressing to the owners if they are taken into care.  This ocurred recently when a cat on our Waiting List was taken in by another charity (not local).  Even if the cat does not look well it does not necessarily mean it is a stray. It could be someone's elderly pet undergoing treatment for thyroid or renal problems. Although not in the best of health these cats are still inclined to roam.  Once again it is best to check with your neighbours (they may be searching for their cat) or your local vet who may be treating the cat.

If you are looking for a cat, call Stephanie on 01692 535858.  Alternatively you can visit our new website at for a description and photographs of the cats before giving her a call on the above number.
