Compulsary microchipping

09 October 2019

In Scotland a black cat on your doorstep is a sign of prosperity, in Northern Europe taking in and caring for a black cat ensures good weather and safe passage ...

Lost and Found (Part 1) With Lyn Gardner - Swansea Cats Protection June 2019 - Home & Garden All is not lost when your cat goes missing Cats love to roam and go on adventures; maybe just to the garden next door, or farther afield perhaps to the waste land just along a bit from their home. But when they’ve been gone too long, we worry they’re lost. And when we find a cat, we may worry about them too and want to help. So, when is a stray, not a stray, but a much-loved cat...
