    0CA9FC21-773A-4943-A48A-002EFEEC3FE2.png These kittens were brought into the rescue by local Police after a passer by heard them crying from the back of a truck. Who knows what was going on or what their fate would have been.

    A545280B-1A18-4A99-8AD3-1130B4FEE97F.jpeg The rescue is truly at breaking point this year. A total of 70 kittens in their care and very few homes coming forward. This chalet is an overflow of the usual kitten crèche.

    There seems to be a lull in rehoming at the moment, same at my local rescue though not as many kittens as this. :(

    I'm in love with this boy at our CP, look at that beautiful face.

    Same lull in adopting at the one I visit but not as many kittens. I am surprised at how few kittens we are seeing as when I visited last autumn there were many that were born March through July.

    Poor babes I hope they all find nice homes. At that age if able I think it is good to adopt two as playmates.

    Would they like some toys? I am not doing any more stalls at shows so am cutting down some of my stock. I am very happy to donate some to the poor little dears.

    I don’t want to claim them to be from me. Let me check the best postal address for the centre and I’ll PM you

    A09C8402-5693-40C0-8FA4-D47B9B502E3B.jpeg Who remembers Burberry? The poor cat who was in a dreadful state with huge mats of fur tearing lumps out of his skin? He battled a bad bout of flu and also ringworm but soon blossomed into a fantastic character who became a favourite of all the staff and volunteers who could not understand why no one picked him for their home. Well finally his turn has come and he looks forward to a luxurious retirement.

    This boy has been eluding the most experienced trappers for at least 8 months, he just will not go in to a trap. He was owned but left behind when they moved. He is believed to be the ‘grandfather’ of a colony of more than 20 younger cats removed from the area by SP.
    He hangs around crying outside the flat that used to be his home.
    I am helping out feeding him to establish a routine so that he can finally be trapped and rescued.

    Aw bless him, looks like he needs a lot of TLC. I do hope he begins to trust you, isn't it a shame we can't make them understand :(
