Cat of the Month:



CAT OF THE MONTH is a tool to try and get a cat or cats rehomed as soon as possible as they have been at the cattery for a while or really need to get into a home of their own.

Cat of the Month is taking a break at the moment but Edwina is available for adoption.

Edwina originally came into our care in October 2013 after being found as a stray in the red zone. Her finder surrendered her to us when she had to leave the area.

She finally went to a new home after being with us for 8 months but unfortunately was returned a couple of months later when her new owners circumstances changed.

Edwina is an independent girl and will be affectionate on her own terms. She likes to be outside and may suit a lifestyle property, stables or farm. Other cats make her nervous so she would be best as an only pet. She can be a little offhand with visitors, but we are hoping someone will see past this and appreciate her as a "cat who walks alone".

Her new owner didn't have any problems with her and in fact was carrying her in his arms when he brought her back!

If you are interested in adopting Edwina, please call us on 033840006 or visit the cattery at 18 Charlesworth Street Woolston during our opening hours.

Latest News & Updates:

We now have the number of cats desexed during March which was an amazing 228!

This brings the total number of cats desexed for the year ended 31 March 2015 to 1818 and the number since we started our Feline Fix programme on 1 July 2010 to 9688!


Thank you to everyone who purchased raffle tickets at Pet Expo and to the donors of the prizes. The raffle was drawn by Kevin as he was helping us pack up the stall and the winners have been notified. The winners were:
1st: Leonie
2nd: Diane
3rd: Jess and Eoin
4th: Sandra


March is over and it was a very busy month with an amazing 56 adopted including 21 adults, 1 teenager and 34 kittens!

For the 12 months ending 31 March 2015 258 adults, 56 teenagers and 152 kittens have been adopted.

Whilst this is 26 less than the previous year, that is a good thing! Virtually the same number of adults (257 last year) were adopted whereas the number of teenagers has halved and there has been an increase in the number of kittens adopted. Most of our kittens have been rehomed in 1-3 days and we are not seeing the huge number of teenagers as before. So much so that the teenage run more often holds an adult cat these days!
