MORE GOOD NEWS ! 18/7/2020
18 July 2020
We are very pleased to tell you that after recently being given the go ahead for Hands Free Homing, we have homed all our cats and kittens that had been with us before Lockdown and those born in care shortly after. They had all been in care between 4 and 6 months and although being well looked after with regular food and lots of TLC from their foster mums and dads, nothing can take the place of a loving Forever New Home. We have also been given the go ahead, under social distancing and health and safety guidelines, to take in our own admissions. The first are a couple of mums with very young kittens and orphaned kittens that we were made aware of in the last month or so and have been supporting the finders with regular phone calls whilst they looked after them on a temporary basis. We also have had transferred 2 pregnant cats from a CP Adoption Centre who have recently given birth. This, with some adults (the first being a heavily pregnant stray), means our foster places are filling up fast. This does mean for a while we will have very few cats and kittens ready for adoption and our Adopt a Cat page on our web site and Facebook will look very bare. However as soon as the cats have had their health checks, vaccinations etc, and been assessed as ready for adoption, they will be on our web site.
So watch this space!
