WHAT WE DO

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 110 cats 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.

 Help for our new CHARITY SHOP also needed! See below.

 MO 

Mo

With Valentine's Day just around the corner this is a handsome black and white fellow who is looking for a permanent loving relationship. Mo is around 6 years old but hey, age is just a number.

He had been living as a stray for a while before he came to our notice and was quite a nervous fellow and suspicious of humans and their motives. Since being neutered he has transformed into a loving, happy, chatty, friendly cat who wants affection and a lap to sit on. It is amazing what a change that little snip can bring about!

Mo we think has always been a country gentleman so he needs a home in a country or village situation, well away from busy roads. He likes well behaved children who will treat him with respect and give him the companionship he wants so desperately, but he isn't keen on either cats. He wants to be king of his own castle.

Please contact 01749 850660 to talk more about Mo.
