May 2013 ~ Spring is in the air and we have lots of lovely cats who have just been admitted to the shelter. All of them need to find new forever homes.
The kitten season is off to a busy start. We've already had two litters born in the shelter with another due any day. And young mum Leyla was admitted with her four babies who are all doing well.
The waiting list for kittens has now reopened and lots of people have already been in to put their name down. You must visit the shelter to get your name added to our kitten waiting list. We cannot take your details by email.
These lovely kittens called Jet, Joey, James and Jerry (pictured) were just 8 weeks old when they arrived in the shelter last year. They all quickly found new loving homes.
We always have cats available, they usually range in age, size, colour and temperament. That usually means we will be able to find the cat for you. Our website is updated on a regular basis but we recommend that you visit the shelter as we are always getting new admissions. Visiting the shelter gives you the opportunity to arrange a home visit and to chat with our volunteers about the cats currently in our care and those that might soon be joining us.
: In general the kitten season runs from April - October, although in recent years we have had litters well outside these times. We always operate a waiting list for our kittens. To be added to the list you must visit the shelter so we can arrange a home visit and take details from you.
: If you need to admit a cat(s) to the shelter either a stray or for rehoming please arrange through our Admissions Officer. Space at the shelter is in high demand and we keep a waiting list for admissions which we try to make as fair as possible. We cannot take cats without prior notice.
Kittens, feral kittens are simply those that are born outside and are rather timid. They need a patient and loving adopter who will take the time to bring them out of themselves. These kittens are not suitable for a home with small children.
If you are looking for farm/stable cats to control the mouse population please contact the shelter.
Some of the cats in our care may not yet be on our website. If you are looking for a feline companion, please call us on 01259 720 555
