THE PURPOSE OF OUR BRANCH
The aim of the Branch is to provide a safe and warm sanctuary for the many unwanted cats. Show the many traumatised cats humans can be kind and loving. Also pick up the pieces where cats are allowed to go through life not being neutered and producing litters of kittens.
Cat of the Week
Alfie is a really stunning looking boy with Black/White markings. His story??? A pretty familiar one he was a stray in Sherborne and in early February was handed into the Branch - no owner has been traced. Initially he was very nervous flinching when any attempt was made to stroke him he had obviously been ill treated. But his life began to change - he went off to the Vets for a full medical which included neutering and micro-chipping. Now that nervous jumpy cat has gone - he is relaxed, enjoys rubbing noses and wants lots of attention. He is becoming a chatty cat especially at food time when he thinks he has waited too long for his supper. He is also very playful currently his favourite toy to fight with is his catnip mouse. He also spends a lot of time watching other cats and there seems to be no aggression. He is probably still too jumpy for a young family, but would be ideal for older/teenage children. Or perhaps for someone just retired wanting a companion or someone working from home who would like an office assistant. A really lovely cat who deserves to find that special home.

We rescue and rehabilitate stray and unwanted cats of all ages across Dorset, parts of Somerset and Wiltshire.
Our aim is to find every cat their "forever home", as well as educating cat owners future and present on neutering and general cat care. We are entirely "not-for-profit" which means that our costs have to be covered by the generosity of donations, volunteers giving up their spare time and income generated from our shop.
