What we do
- Rescue, rehabilitate and rehome unwanted/stray cats
Unfortunately most cats that come into our care have a story. Some are abandoned when their owners move, some wander off and some come to us because their owners no longer can look after them or want them anymore. Some stray cats have been in road accidents and require veterinary treatment. If we have space we will take in any cat that is in need and rehome them in the most suitable environment.
- Encourage the neutering of all cats and kittens
Many feral communities stem from un-neutered pets that either go astray or are left unwanted that go onto to produce several generations of cats and kittens. The life of a feral cat is hard, with little food, competition from other males and females having up to 3 litters of kittens a year. They can be a nuisance to the locals. This is one reason we encourage the neutering of all cats not required for breeding. As well as helping domestic cats, we can also help with feral communities by neutering and setting up feeding schemes.
- Inform the public about the care of cats and kittens
An important part of our work is to help the public by providing information on cat care and answering any questions they may have. We often get calls to the branch requesting help or advice.
