MESSAGE FROM THE BRANCH
14 May 2020
Message from our Homing & Welfare Officer, Branch Coordinator and Branch Committee Members
Hello, we thought we would take this opportunity, in these very troubling times, of updating you on the branch's Cat Welfare work. Although along with all of the Cat Protection network and other Animal Charities most of our work, including Re-homing, Adoption and Fundraising is on hold, our volunteer fosterers are still very much in ‘action’. Behind the scenes in the safety of their own homes, they are caring for the cats already in our care, most, if it wasn’t for the ‘lockdown’, are ready to be in their forever new homes. In the meantime they are safe, warm and being fed with lots of TLC and permitted human interaction.
We currently have 13 adults and 16 kittens in our care and will give you updates of some of them over the coming weeks. Firstly we have 2 of our ‘new’ mums, Berry and Milly, both with their 4 kittens born in care on 24th and 26th of March respectively. Both these new mums came into care as pregnant strays, Berry gave birth within 4 days and Milly 3 weeks later. Thank goodness we were able to get them in. One of their kittens is in the picture.
We will also give updates on some of our adults cats over the coming weeks, but please bear in mind that NONE OF OUR CATS OR KITTENS WILL BE UP FOR ADOPTION BEFORE THE NATIONAL RESTRICTIONS ON NON ESSENTIAL JOURNEYS OR WORK IS LIFTED. WE ARE ALSO UNABLE TO TAKE DETAILS OR REPLY TO ANY ADOPTION ENQUIRIES.
Our Catline 01268 285778 is still open to deal with emergency calls and offer advice
Our best wishes to you all, keep safe and we will between us pick up, with your help, our normal cat work ASAP
Brenda Bell Homing and Welfare Officer and Linda Upson Branch Coordinator
