ITS OFFICIAL !!!!!!!!!!
OUR NEW OTLEY SHOP OPENED FRIDAY 10th JULY at 10.00am.
Its at the bottom of Market Street.So far you have done us proud with some wonderful donations. Some real quality items from small pieces of furniture to designer clothes. Lots of bric a brac. The window display is finished, it looks grand. Thanks to the new Otley team. We do however need lots more as expect many of the goods in the shop to be snapped up as there are some real bargains.
We need your help so we can help more cats, we want our shop to make money to pay our vet and food bills, but also we want our shop to be there for information and advice and for folks to report catty problems in our area.
We certainly need extra money this month because we have become a victim of the overnight freak weather . One fosterer was mopping out at midnight. The hailstones were the size of golf balls and have wrecked the corrugated roof on two pens. The cats were safe as there is a mesh under the roof, so no chance of an escape but were a bit wet.Hope the tarpaulin holds until we can get the repairs done. I am told lots of cars have been damaged, it must have been scary.

Owing to the amount of feral cat work that we deal with as a branch, it is not suprising that we come across some difficult or far from ideal situations. We try our very best to trap, neuter, health check, flea and worm feral cats before returning them to site, however this is not always as straight forward as it sounds.
There are times when we are alerted to cats living in places that are unsafe or where they are unwelcome and at risk of persecution or starvation. Of course it is then impossible to return them. We are therefore hoping to find a home for 5 cats who are currently living behind some flats in Leeds. They have already been terrorised by a dog, and soon their feeder will be moving house. If anybody can help we need a small holding, stables, or a site with a large garden away from built up areas to relocate this family. They will make sure that any mice/rats stay at bay!
Please get in touch if you can help or spread the word, as this group of cats will not be the only ones who will need a new outdoor home this year. This group of cats were in a bit of a state when we were called to help. Since neutering they have blossomed.
Once they lose their food supply they will soon end up in a state again. Don't let this happen to them again. Even if we had room to take in these cats it isn't what they want. They are outdoor cats and don't want to be locked up in a pen.They deserve a safe place so they can continue to enjoy life.
