Three little kittens...

First of all, a great big THANK YOU to everyone who attended, helped at or supported our Christmas Fair last weekend. We raised a spectacular amount; more than £1,000! This will help to make lots of improvements at the shelter, not to mention paying for medications and food for all those hungry babies! If you couldn’t make it to the event but would still like to help, don’t forget you can click the “Donate” button on the right and make a donation using your credit card or Paypal account.

Talking of babies, here for your enjoyment is some fun at Woodland Nook. Take three kittens and one laser pointer and what do you get? A whole lotta fun!

Cherry needs a home

Shy boy Cherry is still a little nervous, but when his confidence grows, he just loves to play and be stroked. He came to the shelter with his brothers, who have now been rehomed, and his parents, Damson and Jarvis, who are still available for adoption.

Could you give this gorgeous boy a home?

Meet Jarvis Cocker

Meet Jarvis Cocker - he’s the daddy of the three black kittens who arrived a Woodland Nook not so long ago. He wants to live with the common people (showing my age!). Or posh people. Or any people really, as long as they are nice and love beautiful spotty, stripy cats like him.

Albertina - blink and you'd have missed her!

Look who came back to Woodland Nook at the weekend!

Yes, it’s Albertina... but her return was short-lived as she’s such a sweetie that she was soon snapped up and has already been adopted, this time with Twinks.

We hope Albertina and Twinks have a lovely time together in their new home. They’re both such lovely cats.
