Cat care donations

As you can imagine we go through a lot of cat food, around 60 pouches a day plus dry food for 30 cats,more when we have litters of kittens. Food donations are always appreciated, we have food collection bins at Tesco (Pinchington Lane) and Pets at Home (London road) and you can drop at either centre (Our Pets at Home centre is currently closed dueto COVID-19).  Felix in Jelly is a preference but any food is welcome as we help out our local branches too when they are in need.

Unwanted beds, carriers, cat bowls, toys and scratching posts are always in demand,if we are unable to use them in the cattery, we can sell them in our shop to create much needed funds,

We have an Amazon wish list, if you want to buy as something particular and would like to know what we need. Please click HERE to go to our list.

Sponsor a Resident Cat

Lola - Came to us in 2007. She had been found as a stray and was suffering from Epilepsy.  She was incontinent too.  Added to that, she couldn't be handled; she wasn't aggressive, she just didn't understand and got very panicky. Her future didn't look bright.  She is such a sweet little girl that likes to follow a routine, so we made the decision to give her a home with us where she could lead a happy stress free life.  You can often find her playing with a blade of grass, or a fleck of something on the floor!
You can see Lola's video on YouTube at: Show Love for Lola

To cover her costs we run a sponsor scheme.  if you are able to help support Lola please follow the link
