Glastonbury & Wells Branch

 FELINE FRIENDS CLUB

Introducing The Glastonbury & Wells FELINE FRIENDS CLUB, for supporters of long stay cats
 

About 40 of our local members are already making regular donations to help long stay cats and others have expressed an interest in doing so. In view of this we have set up the FELINE FRIENDS CLUB.


Rules of membership are simple:


1 Anyone who makes regular donations to help with the expenses incurred by long stay cats becomes a member of the FELINE FRIENDS CLUB.


2 If the donations amount to £50 per year or more they will also become an honorary member of the local Branch.

 

In return for their support, members will receive a bi - annual News Update on the cats they are helping, along with photographs - cats permitting. It would also be possible for members to make visits to the fostered cats - by prior arrangement with the fosterers, of course.


Glastonbury & Wells Branch do not have a central cattery and consider it inadvisable to keep cats penned for more than 6 months (except in exceptional circumstances). For these reasons our long stay cats are always eventually re-homed - but if their condition is likely to mean expensive veterinary care or special diets we will continue to contribute to their upkeep. These become CP Sponsored cats and the donations our members make will go to help them as well.
 

Sponsorship can take several forms:
 

The easiest for most cat lovers is to make a regular donation by standing order (click here for a form the Standing Order is the last page). The amount of the donation is entirely up to the donor. Every penny will be welcome. Just give whatever you can afford.

 

Donations can be made at any time by a cheque made payable to Glastonbury & Wells CPL.
 

Gifts of tins of food, biscuits, toys, cat litter, blankets, scratch posts, beds, etc.,are also acceptable forms of sponsorship.


WHAT MAKES A LONG STAY CAT?
The usual reasons are:
1 Cats with behavioural problems which need to be sorted
2 Cats with injuries or an illness which means they need constant nursing until they’re well enough to home.
3 Pregnant females who have to be kept by CP fosterers until the kittens are born and weaned and until the mother has been spayed and recovered from the operation.
4 Old cats who, especially during the kitten season, get passed over for younger cats.
5 Cats who have lost their youthful good looks - not every cat lover has yet realised that beauty is only skin deep!


Please return the enrolment/standing order form to me, Gill Canning, along with any queries you may have or any suggestions for the running of the club. You will receive a membership certificate in acknowledgement.


We look forward to hearing from you.
