Special Fundraising Appeal
Every cat is special and at challenging times like these they bring joy into the lives of many. Can you share some of that joy with the cats in our care by donating to our appeal? Any donation, large or small, is hugely appreciated and will help towards the costs of food, litter, medical bills etc. We really appreciate that not everyone can donate at this time so please consider sharing this appeal and spreading the message. The link will ensure donations are directed to the Fram and Sax branch. Thank you in advance. https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/Fram-and-Sax
Janet Symons decided to do a sponsored 26 hour Marathon Stamp Trim to try and raise some funds for our Framlingham & Saxmundham Branch during the current restrictions due to COVID-19. All our fundraising events have been cancelled, and our work caring for cats and kittens goes on, with many likely to remain in our care for considerably longer than usual.
Early in March a giant box of used stamps, all untrimmed, was delivered here for our Branch. Janet had thought to invite some volunteers to her home for a 'day trim', when she would provide a simple lunch. However, that is no longer possible, so she thought of a sponsored Marathon at home on her own, starting on Sunday 26th April. Obviously it will take 3-4 days to fit in the 26 hours, (she has to feed the cats and even grab a bite of something for herself now and again, and get a bit of shut-eye)!
Your donation will be gratefully received and will help Janet in her task.
Our cats and kittens will be in care for a lot longer than planned due to the Covid-19 situation as we are unable to re-home any of them at the moment. Our fosterers are taking very good care of them of course. If you would like to help perhaps you could support them by donating a gift for the cats and kittens to enliven their extended stays; please click on the link below to see the goodies available on our Amazon Wishlist. Thank you.
Very many thanks to everyone who sent gifts for our cats over recent weeks via Amazon Wishlist. Everyone of them was gratefully received, more so at this extraordinary time! A very big thank you to Lorna, Eliza, Jeannine, and Debs and all those who remain anonymous. Among the many gifts were scratching posts, blankets, toys, treats and heating mat - all of which will be put to very good use.
|If you are considering adopting a cat or kitten, please do not ignore the many black and white felines we have looking for new homes. They are just as adorable as their more 'colourful' cousins! See them on the adoption pages and call to arrange to meet them when we are allowed to start homing again.

About Our Branch.
Our branch, Framlingham and Saxmundham, was formed in 1989 by a group of concerned people who were alarmed by the increasing numbers of abandoned and unwanted cats and kittens in the area. Originally under the guidance of the Bury St Edmunds branch, Fram and Sax received approval from Cats Protection to form a local branch in April 1990. Since our formation we have gone from strength to strength and on average now home between 150 and 200 cats and kittens each year. Sadly, the problem of unwanted cats and kittens has not decreased despite neutering campaigns. All the work is voluntary and has to be fitted in with business and private lives. It is sometimes extremely difficult to get this fact over to the general public. We have a dedicated team of volunteers without whom we could not carry out the vital work we do to help the cats and kittens in our area.
We do not have a purpose built adoption centre, so all the cats and kittens are placed in either cat pens in fosterers' gardens or kitten pens in a spare bedroom. We are now holding regular Homing Events, where some of our cats and kittens can be viewed in the one place. We hold three or four of these each year and they are a very successful part of our rehoming programme! Keep an eye on our events page for future Homing Events.
We are always looking for new ways of raising money and for additonal helpers, so please let us know if you can help in any way.
Do come back frequently to these pages as we are constantly updating our adoption and feature pages. If you have any stories of cats or kittens you have adopted from Fram and Sax CP, please let us know. We love to hear about, and see pictures of, the felines who have been in our care.
The Gallery below shows just some of the cats and kittens we have successfully homed.
Also see us on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram (see links below).
Thank you for visiting and we hope that when you are considering sharing your home with a very special pet you will consider adopting one of our cats or kittens and give them their new start in life.
