Caturday kitten

This little beauty is currently living at a cat rescue centre near here. My daughter is due to start volunteering there this weekend and I’m confident she will be in her element. It’s a lovely shelter and, when we asked what duties would include, we were told “sometimes they just need stroking”.

We were instructed to familiarise ourselves with the cats and by the end of our visit we were beginning to recognise quite a few of them, including Dave, who rarely ventures out from the top of the shed. 

At the other end of the social spectrum, there are lots of inquisitive little ginger kittens there right now and I’m sure they will have no trouble finding homes. Some of the cats there are older - or, like Dave, troubled - and therefore harder to home. Some will even spend the rest of their days there. But I have to admit that it’s hard to feel sorry for the cats as the shelter is so lovely and homely!

I’m deliberately not naming the shelter as I haven’t asked permission to publicise but if anyone local is in need of a cat or two (and I firmly believe it’s a “need” and not a “want”), please get in touch and I’ll give you the details. 


  1. Awh what a cutie pie, I am so envious of your daughter - ask her to get me job as cat stroker anytime :)

  2. Oh, don't tell me! I'd love another cat but not until after holidays! Doesn't stop me looking though! ;0)

  3. so cute and so glad your daughter found a place to volunteer.

  4. Your picture is adorable and your daughter is to be commended! This is such a wonderful gift that she is sharing with those animals and with her love and patience, even the most timid cat will benefit from her attention! Every pet in our family has either been 'found' or adopted and you are so right in saying that it is a 'need' not a 'want'.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
