This was taken a few months ago, and Sophia was even then looking longingly at the outside. Not long now, Sophia, you'll be going outside soon!

Food needed please

We're not exactly down to our last two tins of food, but we are getting through it at an alarming rate! If you could put an extra packet of pouches in your shopping trolley this week, for the Woodland Nook kitties, it would be a big help. Thank you!

A Message From Gracie

Gracie is one of our Cretan Princesses, brought over from Cats Pyjama's on Crete. We recently received this update from her new Mummy:

"Hi Auntie Jane Beverley Lynegar and friends at Cats Pyjamas.Its me Gracie! I've been very busy settling into my new home. I get lots of love and cuddles from my new mummy & daddy and I have made some new fury friends who I live with. I'm enjoying my food and treats, mummy keeps telling me am growing so much. Thank you so much for helping me find my forever home. Love you all lots Gracie"

We love getting updates from our former residents, it makes us feel great about what we do, rescuing unwanted, abandoned kitties, rehabilitating them and finding their perfect forever homes. 

Have a lovely life Gracie! We love you!
