We believe animals deserve compassion, respect and consideration. That prevention of unwanted animals through the promotion of neutering and education, and the humane control of feral colonies is required, and no healthy animal should be destroyed if a responsible home cannot be found.
Visiting is strictly by appointment to protect the health and welfare of the animals in our care, please do not visit unless by prior appointment.

Booty Needs Donations
This is Booty, a beautiful black female, who was found under a car with a badly smashed face in June 2014. She was very scared and in pain but we managed to gain her trust and took her straight to the vet. She has had masses of anti biotics, pain killers and a lot of surgery. She is being fed by drip, and is currently having specialist jaw surgery. We know this is going to cost a lot of money to make her better, but we would never refuse to help an animal like this. Her injuries included a huge hole in her palate, fractures in jaw, and her tongue was nearly cut off. She also has some eye injuries, and is probably blind in one eye, but despite all this she has been the perfect patient, and loves a cuddle or three. Donations are welcome via the “Make a Donation” link below (remember to add the word “Booty” in the comments column), or email firstname.lastname@example.org for an alternative way to pay. Thank you for supporting this gorgeous little girl.
End of July update: Booty’s feeding tube has now been removed & although being hand fed she has started to semi lap water & liquid food. She is not out of the woods yet but we will monitor her progress & talk to another yet to see if they have any thoughts. Her main problem seems to be her tongue to which she has had a further operation.
September update: Booty is now living in a lovely large room with huge garden room with some of our Golden Oldies, and they have settees to lounge about on. She is eating totally herself, but due to her ‘short’ tongue she puts her nose in the liquidized food, and causes rather a mess everywhere when she shakes! So Booty had another operation on 19th September at the specialist orthopaedic vet to enable her to open her mouth wider, and hopefully get more food in her mouth so she does not need to put her face right in & get in such a mess. It’s early days yet, but she is back with the oldies who she loves (and did miss them) and seems very happy now.
December update: Booty has had a few setbacks when we stopped liquidizing her food, to encourage her to open her mouth more. This caused a few problems, and she was not eating as much as she should, and was losing weight. It was difficult to tell how much she was eating because of the other cats in with her, so she has been moved temporarily to a pen so we can keep an eye on her weight. We did not like the thought of her being on her own, so her ‘boyfriend’ Stanley is with her (they snuggle up together). We let her have a run about as well, and she just loves everyone. She has put on weight, and the food is just semi liquidized so she is making a bit less of a mess with her eating. Helen, one of her staff, found her some lovely pudding basin type bowls, so not quite so much goes over the side!
We’ll keep you posted on how she progresses! Thank you all for kind words and donations so far.
