    Oh they are all lovely! Burby looks a little bruiser bless him :)
    Aristotle is very Tonk like, the face shape and eye colour. He's gorgeous! x

    F2CFDDDA-7FF0-4B5B-B27C-243EC49C790C.jpeg I did an extra run up to the rescue today....to drop off a delivery of artificial turf kindly donated ( well i did ask nicely) by a local landscaping company. It will be used to brighten up some of the outside pen space and give the cats somewhere soft to lounge.
    Of course I was delighted to have another opportunity to get cuddles with Mildred and Burberry, and sneak them some Cosma snackies.
    I was especially glad to see that the two zooplus carboard houses which I had passed on were being occupied by two of the timid cats in the Main unit. Burby had done some serious damage to his cardboard scratcher so next time I go I must find a new one for him.......

    Burberry got his new scratch pad today and Mildred got extra cuddles. Everyone got sneaky snackie treats.I’ve ordered her a memory foam pad as she is so skinny and boney.
    Lots of the outside areas are now covered in AstroTurf and I brought up a tray of petunias to add to the flower pots. They are always happy for visitors to pop by during opening hours and it’s a nice area to visit with some nice pubs for lunch.

    His name was still on his pen but he wasn’t in there so not sure actually. He could just have been collected or could have been at the vet.

    Kenzo has been returned to the rescue after just a short time in his new home. The reason? He was disturbing their sleep by chirruping and playing.
    Poor lad had waited a long time to be chosen and was only showing how happy he was.

    Poor lad!
    Aren’t people aware that animals do make a certain amount of noises? Well, fish don’t...

    Ugh and another returned, this time because he didn’t get on with the resident male cat.
    At least the adopters both returned the cat to the rescue rather than trying to pass them off on gumtree or Facebook.
    This is a huge problem for the rescue though as they had to magically find two spare pens when they are always full.
    It’s a very quiet time for rehoming too which means the waiting list is growing daily and there is no space even for urgent cases.

    Aren't they all gorgeous, though I know they are in good hands now, it breaks my heart to think no one loved most of them up until now. :(

    I've just been reading on Facebook that they got quite damaged with flooding today/yesterday? :( Am assuming it's the same rescue anyway...

    A dreadful day at the rescue. :(
    The heavy rains have hit them hard and all 3 of the main buildings are in need of major repairs.
    Some areas were flooded while others have suffered major damage to the roof structure.

    Today I was asked to help with transport for the rescue. A local woman had a 10 week old kitten that was proving too much for her so she wanted SP to take her on.
    Rosebud was indeed rather a live wire and screamed through the whole of her journey, before vomiting just as we arrived!
    I left her being introduced to an existing family so that she has some cat company to rough and tumble with.
    She joined the several dozen other kittens that the rescue has in their care, every available pen being in use.

    She's a sweetie, hope she and the others find homes soon. Rosebud was the name of one of my previous cats who was the same colour as this kitten
