OUR ONGOING COVID POLICY (July 2021)

In order to continue our work, protect ourselves and visitors to our centre, we will be exercising caution over the coming months in regard to the lifting of 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

A PERSONAL THANK YOU FROM RUTH & ALLAN (December 2020)

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.

CATS GOING MISSING

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.

YOUR DONATIONS & HOW WE USE THEM

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.
