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

During 2016 our branch homed a total of 110cats and kittens. Of these 14 were homed direct from their owners and 3 were ferals that were neutered and relocated to a new site. This is about the same as 2015 and our figures would be much higher if we didn't run our regular neutering campaigns which are continuing with a campaign in February to March & September to November.

During the year we helped members of the public with the cost of neutering 248 of their own cats, in addition to helping with the cost of 32 ferals.

We had a couple of fosterers temporarily out of action at the end of the year and had just 12 cats in our care and 5 on the waiting list on 31st December. As there aren't normally any kittens during the winter months this is always a good time to find homes for our adult cats.

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 with cat rescue 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 all reasonable expenses will be reimbursed.

Wellie is a pretty 10 month old white and grey female who is looking for a loving and understanding home. She came into our care when she was found near Wells with a front leg caught in a trap and was then about 9 weeks old.

She was in a sorry state and a lot of pain because of the severe infection in the injured leg. With expert veterinary care and loads of TLC she gradually recovered. It was touch and go at first as to whether the leg could be saved but luckily for Wellie, the infection was eventually cleared and now, several months on it is impossible to tell which leg was injured. But the infection has impacted on her heart and she does need daily tablets which she takes easily in her food. It is likely that she will need the tablets for the rest of her life but there is no reason why she cannot live a long and happy life.

We need to home Wellie with some one who will not be overly protective of her because of the trauma she has suffered. Wellie has forgotten all about it and her new owner should put it to the back of their mind also.We would prefer to home her as the only cat or with an older, settled cat. She would also be fine with a quiet cat friendly dog.

Wellie is a happy, affectionate little cat who loves a cuddle and some one to play with. Cats Protection can offer advice and support to her new owner if needed and also with the medication she will need.

Phone Pauline on 01749 840293 if you could offer Wellie a loving home.
