A little help

In just over a year I have gone from being a little indifferent to kitties to having one of my very own and being totally won over by her gorgeous, furry little ways. 
Thanks to my fluffy Mabel friend I have developed a love for cats that I never actually expected!

I may have mentioned before that whenever I have 5 minutes to spare I spend it looking at the cats available for adoption on our local cat shelter's website.
It's not unusual for me to fall in love several times a week with the little faces peeping at me from the pictures! I would like to have them all and fill the house full of furry feet. I'd love to give them all the loving, safe, cosy, forever home that each one of them deserves.
I took a look and fell in love yet again this morning and it prompted me to write this post.

I know that there are many fantastic cat shelters and organisations for unwanted and mistreated animals to choose from, it's hard to know who to help first!
When we were looking for Mabel we visited several but this one in particular stood out to me so I have decided to dedicate this blog post to them in the hope that it might help them in some small way to take care of the kitties that I can't take home.

Haworth Cat Rescue do a fantastic job of caring for and rehoming cats. They neuter and microchip all cats that find themselves in their care and they do not put healthy cats to sleep.
I don't work for them, I don't even know the people that do. From the 3 or 4 times I visited them during our search for Mabel I realised that what they do is amazing.

...but don't take my word for it! You can find more out about them here

If you can spare a donation you can do so online here 

or you can text CATS22 £5 to 70070

and you can see the latest cats ready for rehoming here... but be warned, you might want them all!

Thank you

Paws for thought

We had a run of unseasonably lovely weather for a few weeks here in the UK and Mabel took full advantage of the warm sunshine whenever she got chance. She has enjoyed playing out, exploring, climbing trees, sunbathing, catching leaves and visiting her friends, the chickens, in next doors garden. 
Luckily for the dry garden but unfortunately for little Mabel the weather has taken a turn this week and has gone back to the breezy, showery spring weather that we would expect for the time of year. So instead of being outside she spends most of her time indoors looking out. I sometimes wonder what thoughts go through her mind as she sits at the window gazing into the garden. I like to think that she's planning her next big outdoor adventure.
