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 another difficult year when, during the long hot summer we received few enquiries  to home 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 enquires to re-home 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 re-homing 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 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.

 CHLOE 

 Chloe

Chloe is a lovely, lively and confident 10 month old black and white female. She is a big cuddly cat who likes to sit on laps but also to play.

Chloe has lived with other cats and we think she would tolerate a quiet cat friendly dog.

She would make a perfect pet for a busy household where there is lots going on for her to get involved in. Older children who would play with her would be ideal but she is boisterous and so we prefer not to home her with young children.

 

Phone Gill on 01749 850660 to offer Chloe a home. She would make a great alternative to an Easter bunny.
