Whats Happening

Cats Paws Closure
06 July 2020 by Cats Paws

Firstly, we would like to take this opportunity to thank the amazing frontline and key workers for all their hard work and dedication during these challenging times.

Since the lockdown began, like many others, we had to close our sanctuary doors to the public meaning adoptions could not take place. We continued to take stray cats and kittens in and we did our very best to keep them warm, safe and relaxed. With all the extra cuddles they got from us, they certainly were relaxed! Our sanctuary gate remained open throughout and we were over whelmed with all the donations of cat food we received.

We are working very hard to put the required safety measures in place to allow the sanctuary to re-open. We would like to thank everyone for being very patient and understanding. Please bear in mind that when the sanctuary does re-open, thing will be very different and we will be working on strictly appointment only adoptions. If you are looking to adopt a cat or kitten, please contact the sanctuary on 01253 760007 for more information.

Kitten season
19 July 2017 by Cats Paws

Kitten season is the time of year when cats give birth, flooding rescue centres with homeless litters. Kitten season is really three seasons in one, starting in spring, peaking in late spring or early summer, and ending in fall.

We do have kittens available for adoption at the moment so if you are interest please contact the sanctuary via phone call to check they are still available. We can not reserve kittens over the phone. You will have to visit the sanctuary, spend some time with the kittens and adoption is on a first come first serve basis. We can not hold kittens once adopted, they must go to their new home the same day. Please have everything set up for them in their new home before coming to the sanctuary. 

Kittens that are available are over 9 weeks of age. They have been health checked by our vets, microchipped and have had their first vaccination. Depending on how old they are they may of had their second vaccination also. If not, it is your responsibility to take them to the vets for their second vaccination. This will cost you around £25 with a discount voucher from us. We will issue you a voucher that will cover the full cost of neutering. This is to be used at our vets, The Veterinary Health Centre, Greenways, St Annes. We blood test all mother cats for Feline Aids and Leukaemia to make sure nothing has been passed on to the kittens. 

If you are thinking of adopting a kitten, please remember cats can live into their twenties. 

Kittens can be very fast, active and will want to climb what they are not allowed to!
