Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby!

Poor Ruby. She thought she was set up for life and then her owners bought a new sofa so she was sent away. Yes, really. We hear it all at Woodland Nook. Check out that cute little nose!

Shadow - needs a hug!

Shadow is a loving cat who clearly needs lots of cuddles! Could you find room in your home – and hearts – for this fluffy fellow? Here he is, snuggling up to Tom, one of our regular volunteers.

Amazon wish list - updated

It’s an expensive business running a cat shelter. All that cat litter, all that food, worming treatment, flea treatment, as well as everyday essentials such as washing detergent, cleaning fluids and those all-important gloves to protect our volunteers’ hands when cleaning out the litter trays!

This is why we have an Amazon wish list. This means it’s really easy to help out – all you have to do is click here, choose what to purchase, and it will be delivered directly to the shelter.

The list has been updated recently, so please take a look. Jane, the volunteers and, of course, the cats, will be ever so grateful!
