The Autumn edition of our IOW Newsletter is now out!

23 September 2019
The Autumn edition of our IOW Newsletter is now out!

Nothing is ever just black and white!  Find out more in our latest IOW newsletter.      

The golden colours of Autumn may be on their way, but here at our Centre, we’ve had a stunning array of black-and-white adorning the cattery. Over 50 of these strikingly-patterned kitties have joined us since May!

Like their black cousins, black-and-white cats always seem harder to re-home, for no other reason than their colour. But as you'll see when you read our newsletter, nothing is ever just black-and-white, or indeed just black. We guarantee you’ll see these gorgeous cats in a completely new light!

Thankfully the kitten season is gradually coming to an end. We’ve re-homed over 70 kittens so far this year and have another 19 still in foster care!  But at last, they’re starting to make way for their older buddies who tend to get overlooked whilst the younger ones hog all the attention. Fortunately, our oldest cat Orly (a very sprightly 18-year-old) managed to out-shine the youngsters and got herself a lovely forever home. Do read her heart-warming story inside this latest edition.  

We've also got an update from our volunteering team and all our fundraising activities. The critical work we do for cats across the island is only made possible through the efforts of our volunteers who give their time and expertise to make such a positive difference to cats’ lives. Needless to say, we’d love to welcome more volunteers to the team. 

So whether you’re thinking of volunteering or adopting or just wanting to hear more about the cats - please read on.  Or come on over. We’d love to see you.
