The local (to remain nameless) rescue/ rehoming charity I used to volunteer for has currently been advertising that they are desparate for cat food and its making me so cross....bear with me!! I know for a fact that they have plenty of food, in fact some of it gets thrown away because it goes past its use by date. I popped in to see one of the fosterers the other day and she had an entire workshop stacked floor to ceiling with food. She actually said she wasnt sure what she was going to do with it all. When I took Tommy back I donated a big box of all his kitten food, tins of carny, granata pet and packs of bozita etc. There was quite a bit as Stitch doesnt like it. When I went to feed the cats at the rehoming a few weeks ago I spotted the box of tommys food. I knew it was the stuff I donated - its hardly a mainstream brand and it hadnt been touched. The other volunteer pointed to the box and said that it probably needed throwing out because it was old!!! Needless to say every cat got feed with bozita and carny They also overfill bowls so much that you throw away more food than gets eaten. I dont volunteer here anymore they got really funny with me when I said I couldnt help for a while (my daughter was critically ill in hospital!). Why beg people for food when you already have so much and throw so much of it away!!
