A new name for Snowie

Beautiful Snowie has been given a far more fitting name. Because she is so striking and panther-like, she has been renamed Panthea! Much more suitable...

Panthea needs a home. If you’re interested, please contact Jane.

Funds urgently needed

It’s been a bit quiet on the blog lately... and a little quiet at Woodland Nook, too. Unfortunately we can’t take any more cats in until we have more funds; it’s too risky in case there’s an unexpected vet bill.

Right now there are just a few cats needing homes – and they’re all colour co-ordinated! They are:

Paddington & Puzzle
These are adorable brothers. Puzzle is quite shy but would soon come out of his shell in a quiet home.   They are neutered males of about 10 months old. 

Ruby & Azazel
Brother and sister, these are a good-looking pair. Ruby is quite shy but is growing in confidence lately. Azazel is a man-about-town, quite dapper and enjoys a fuss.

A shy black cat is particularly hard to home but we’re sure you’d find life with Snowy very rewarding. She’s getting more confident by the day and would love a forever home where she can truly relax.

Loki needs a special home as he has had a very tough start to life. He is blind in one eye and has limited vision in the other... but this doesn’t stop him chasing tiny stones – far more fun than cat toys! He has very sleek fur and an unusually thin tail, so you won’t mix him up with any other black cat. He also requires a special diet but this is quite simple – speak to Jane for more information.

So, as you can see, there are just six cats needing homes from Woodland Nook at the moment... but we know there are many more cats who need our help. It’s frustrating that we can’t do more until we have a financial buffer. If you have any fundraising ideas, please do get in touch with Jane!
