In order to continue our work, protect ourselves and visitors to our centre, we will be adhering to government guidelines and exercising caution over the coming months in regard to Covid restrictions.

All appointments must be confirmed bookings or we will not be able to see you. Sensible social distancing, and mask wearing when in enclosed spaces such as our office will continue until further notice. This is ultimately for the good of the cats who need our help.

We work 7 days a week and appointments can be made outside of working hours if necessary.

Thank you,

Ruth and Allan

2022 CALENDAR ERROR (Dec 2021)

We have apology to make for an error that has come to light in our 2022 calendar.

The month of April dates are incorrect, and unfortunately we didn't notice it during proofing and nor did our printers.

The dates are one of the very few automatic elements of our calendar design software and for some reason it went wrong for April. We are extremely upset that this has happened (the first and only time in 8 years) and we hope that it doesn't spoil your overall pleasure of seeing the lovely calendar winners.

We will be replacing our software this year and will add an extra layer of proofing due to this error, so that nothing like this happens again.

Again, please accept our apologies.


We are pleased to announce the winners of our annual calendar competition.

The winners packs will be send out in November and we will let you know when the calendar is available to buy. We have not increased the price, so at just £5 it will make a great gift!


We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the gifts to us both. We have been overwhelmed by your kindness and generosity, and each and every gift is very much appreciated.        We don’t have a lot of time for cooking or shopping so these goodies are a real treat.

We know what a difficult year 2020 has been in so many ways, and the donations of all kinds such as regular and one off donations of funds, food, blankets, beds, toys and equipment that we have received for the cats have touched us deeply and helped so much.

We hope that you all have a safe and happy year ahead.

This year we have taken in a great many cats from the streets, in terrible condition and known to have been homeless - in many cases for years. Click here to read about Eagle and Curtis, just two of these cats, and the reality of life of the streets for cats like them.


Please click here to read about how we have continued our rescue work despite lockdown measures and to see some of the cats we are currently caring for and helping to heal....


Every year we receive numerous reports of cats going missing across Kent, sometimes many from the same street.  We urge all cat owners to please be vigilant and keep your cats safe.

Sadly, cats are rarely stolen for benign reasons and these kind of reports are extremely worrying. We don't want to be alarmist, but as a rescue we feel we have a duty to inform owners that this is happening.

Our comprehensive Indoor Life information leaflet is available from our centre or by email should owners wish to consider this option

 Supporter Collection Keyrings & Fridge Magnets

We have created a gorgeous Supporter Collection of keyrings and fridge magnets. All of the cats featured belong to loyal supporters who entered our "Fantastic Felines" 2019 calendar competition.

They are available to purchase from our online shop at a great low price and all proceeds are for the cats.


Each week we receive donations from our supporters and members of the public, whether regular or one-off, for which we are so grateful.

As a purely voluntary charity, donations are our lifeblood and provide a number of essentials.

Your money goes towards food, neutering, flea treatments, worming treatments, drugs to treat ongoing conditions, dental treatments and emergency care.

The many donations we receive of food, blankets, toys and other feline equipment provide comfort, warmth, sustenance and play which are vital elements of any cat or kitten’s stay with us.

Your kindness and support means that we can continue to help the many cats in need of us and find safe and loving homes for them.

We are often asked cat related questions, so we have compiled a few into a question and answer page for you to browse.

All of these questions will remain on the page and will be added to over time.
