Casper is desperate for a loving home. Please spread the word for this wonderful boy.
We are pleased to report our lovely volunteers and supporters raised £90 for the cats at our Tombola Stall at St Mary's Church Fete in Clophill today =^.^=
REUNITED =^.^=Charley (real name Sooty) was dumped at a vets4pets recently. We had his abscess treated and had him neutered. Wonderfully his owners recognised him on our website and after a whole year if being missing he is home. He had obviously been living the life of an unneutered tom, wandering and fighting, so its lovely he can settle down now. Thankyou to vets4pets.
A massive thank you to Peter Rayney Tax Consulting for their £100 donation. =^.^=
This week Natasha Balletta Photogrpahy carried out a free photoshoot of our lovely cats. Hopefully their gorgeous new pictures will help them attract a new home.
A massive thankyou to Mike Bryan for buying us 2 new sheds and for a huge donation of kitten food. He has been a brillaint supporter lately, helping with vet bills amongst many other things too =^.^=

Open Day 2011 was an enormous success with lots of people attending and supporting us. The day had several purposes; to enable supporters and visitors to see our shelter, see the cats awaiting re-homing, for us to say thank you to our supporters and also as a fund raising event.
We had a jam stall, burger stall, drinks stall, cake stall, Stray Cat Rescue items, a Pagan/New Age stall, and our new goods at discount prices stall. We also had a raffle, tombola table, Guess the name of the Teddy Bear stall and the Cat Desert Island game. Simon Tofield, our patron attended as usual and drew the raffle. A signed copy of his book was one of the major prizes in the tombola.
More kittens have come in please check the Kittens page for more information.
KITTENS GALORE!!!We have in excess of 20 kittens in care at the moment all urgently in need of kind loving homes, some born in care, their mum abandoned when pregnant, some found living rough with their mums, all the mums are friendly and very grateful for the care we have given them, obviously abandoned as they’re not feral. Two kittens taken in recently were found in a rabbit hutch on an abandoned gypsy site along with their two already dead siblings both close to death themselves, at the moment we’re keeping our fingers crossed and they seem to be making progress towards a recovery. Fleur a pure white four month old was dumped out of a car in a road in Luton, luckily for her someone saw it happen, took her in and called us, when she first arrived she was dirty,thin, very depressed and wouldn’t eat, now she is snowy white, very lively, very affectionate and would love a home of her own.The photographs on the KITTENS page are just some of the kittens we have available at the moment.
New cat pens going up! It was a long day for all the volunteers involved but they got there in the end.
Stray Cat Rescue had a great result at Flitwick on Saturday. This was a brilliant result and thank you to everyone who helped.
