Trap, neuter and return Herding Cats! Herding cats? Surely not! Well, you’re right it isn’t the best way to catch cats, so at Swansea Cats Protection we undertake TNR – which stands for ‘trap, neuter and return’. Whilst it’s not the most glamorous role our incredibly dedicated volunteers undertake, it is certainly a vital and challenging one. TNR is the method preferred by Cats Protection to effectively and humanely control feral cat populations ...

Toby's Heroes

27 April 2019

When Toby one of our rescue cats went missing last week after a trip to the vet (the lovely fella wasn’t feeling his best) his adoring owners, Margaret and Craig, feared the worst. Posters were put up, leaflets were distributed - the word was out: ‘Toby is missing!’ Immediately to the rescue came Daniel and Cook who were determined to find him.

Spring clean and de-clutter for cats! Swansea Cats Protection with Lyn Gardner Spring is in the air and our thoughts inevitably turn to having a good tidy up and de-clutter, so this month we thought you’d like to hear about our volunteer-run fundraising charity shop. It’s a great place to donate your unwanted items – and to shop too. Having a good clear out and sorting through your clothes, books and other household items may not be everyone’s idea of fun, but ...

Now of course as a volunteer for Swansea Cats Protection, my head can be turned by the sight of adorable kittens – whose wouldn’t? But as a volunteer I also see the hundreds of abandoned kittens, unwanted adult cats and the terrible toll that repeated pregnancies take on ...

Bay Magazine - Autumn 2018

01 January 2019

Cat Tales This month we’d like to give you an insight into the work we do as volunteers for Swansea Cats Protection and what better way than to look at it from the cat’s perspective! How might the cats and kittens we help every day see our work? Sometimes they are not at all happy to see us and are terrified we might be just another person to fear and flee from. Others are just bewildered at how their lives have been turned upside down; yesterday they were happy in their home and ...

Old Cats deserve a chance too

06 August 2017
