We are delighted to have reunited a missing cat with its’ owner, 5 months after it went missing. The cat was brought in to our centre and was scanned. The cat had been micro-chipped and after checking the number, the owner contacted and the cat was collected. The owner was astonished  after all this time, but what a great result.

Please have your cats micro-chipped, and never give up hope that you will be reunited with your missing cat.

Cat of the Week

Meet Stella...Stella was a stray and is deaf, so an understanding home, ideally with an enclosed garden would be perfect. She is approximately 10 years old and is all white with pretty blue eyes. Stella has had some treatment for her skin, and her fur and general health are improving daily. She has a loud miaow and is an affectionate girl. Can you offer her a safe and secure home?
