WHAT WE DO

Cats Protection is a National Feline Rescue and Welfare Charity, taking in lost and unwanted cats, and finding new homes for them. We also encourage neutering and advise on general feline welfare problems.

 

The Glastonbury & Wells Branch of Cats Protection, covers a largely rural part of Somerset including Shepton Mallet, Wells, Glastonbury, Street, Cheddar, Castle Cary and surrounding area. All of our cats are kept at the homes of volunteer fosterers because we have no central shelter.

2013 was a difficult year when, during the long hot summer we received few enquiries to rehome cats We actually homed 136 cats and kittens, which was 20 less than 2012. We also reunited 16 cats with their owners and trapped, neutered and returned over 53 ferals. We also microchipped 256 at branch expense during our neutering campaigns.

In late November/early December there was a sudden spate of enquiries to rehome cats. This is normally our quietest time of year. At the end of the year we had 18 cats in care and 10 on our waiting list.

We always have friendly cats of all ages for rehoming and often 'feral' (semi-wild) cats for farms. We often have kittens in need of homes, especially between May-September. Some cats are re-homed quickly, whilst others need medical care or rehabilitation before new homes can be found. Adults are always vet checked, neutered, wormed, treated for fleas, microchipped and vaccinated, and - when needed, the services of a pet behaviourist to sort out any psychological problems the cat may have. Please go to our Contact Us page for details of our Welfare Officer and other Committee Members.

 

If you would like to join us and help cats in this area of Somerset, please go to the Membership page. We always need fosterers, home checkers, cat cuddlers and fundraisers – all strictly volunteers, although reasonable expenses will be reimbursed.

CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR A HOME

 FLEUR

Fleur is looking for a home in the Wells / Glastonbury area

 

Fleur is a dainty, pretty little tortie female who is about 15 months old and has already raised a litter of kittens, been neutered and is regaining her kittenhood.

She is very friendly, likes to sit on laps and is extremely playful when the fancy takes her, which is quite often. Fleur  loves human company and would probably live happily with a laid back male cat who would let her boss him around. She seems to be on friendly terms with my boxer so would also be ok with a cat friendly dog.

Phone Gill on 01749 850660 to offer Fleur a happy and loving home.
