CVCHA receptionist Julie Sanders has organised a collection of cat food for Ward End Cat Reserve, as a thanks to them for rescuing five cats that a local resident no longer wanted. Tony Hunter, from the Cat Reserve, rescued the five cats last Thursday, and since that time Julie’s appeal to her CVCHA colleagues has resulted in a collection of over 60 tins of cat food, and boxes full of cat litters, biscuits, blankets and treats. Tony Hunter came in to collect the gifts today, and brought along two kittens and a one-year-old cat for a brief visit.
Julie is now setting up a permanent ‘cat rescue Bin’ in CVCHA’s reception area, where residents can donate tins of cat food to be given to the rescue centre. Julie said: “We often ask Tony to come and rescue a cat that has been abandoned or can’t be looked after any more. His rescue centre relies on donations from the public to keep it going, so we are happy to give him whatever support we can.”
Tony Hunter said: “This is a busy time of year for us. Sadly, some cat owners abandon their pets, or call us to take them off their hands when they go on holiday, because they don’t want to pay the fees to house them in a cattery while they are away.”
