Help us fund our newest cat pen
27 November 2019
We're still raising money towards the ongoing costs of running our newest cat pen.
Gosport Cats Protection is manned totally by cat-loving volunteers who give up their time, skills and even a patch of their garden to help look after the cats in our care while awaiting adoption. The number of cats we can help is limited only by the number of fosterers and pens we have, so we've been raising funds to cover the costs of installing, equipping and the ongoing running costs of the latest cat pen in the garden of volunteer, Jackie.
Jackie has been settling each cat in and making sure all their needs are met whilst in her care and ensuring they are ready to meet potential adopters and move on to their forever homes. As one cat leaves, the pen gets a thorough clean before the next cat on our long waiting list quickly moves in.
Our fundraising was not only for the materials and building of the pen but also for all the things which go to make it clean, homely and welcoming. That’s everything from mops and cloths, food bowls, litter and litter trays through to heating, bedding, hiding places, scratch posts and lots of stimulating toys. Jackie spends many hours in the pen playing and caring for the cats every day. Of course, the costs of caring for foster cats continues with consumables such as litter, food and toys.
Currently black & white boys Albert & Mikey are the residents of Jackie's pen while we look for a permanent home for them together. Their details are on the adoption page.
