Meet Zsa Zsa at Cats Protection!

Isn't she beautiful!

Now before you all rush to social media and announce that Austin's found true love at last, let me just say this. Yes she is beautiful, but no, we are not snuggling together and playing happy families at Chez Towers - "More's the pity" says The Staff!!

No! We decided a while ago to sponsor a kitty through Cats Protection UK and this is the one :) She is a one year old mum (as you can see) who was abandoned by her owners when they were evicted. 

Cats Protection is a charity that does exactly that. It protects cats!! Here is what they say about themselves:
From humble beginnings in 1927, Cats Protection has grown to become the UK's leading feline welfare charity. We now help around 200,000 cats and kittens every year through our network of over 250 volunteer-run branches, 29 adoption centres and two homing centres.
Our work doesn’t stop there, however: we also provide an array of cat care information via our publications, website and helpline; promote the benefits of neutering to prevent unwanted litters from being born and becoming the abandoned cats of tomorrow and seek to educate people of all ages about cats and their care.

At the moment, they have well over 6000 cats and kittens needing homes, so we are doing our little bit to get the word out and support in any way we can.

Sponsoring at Cats Protection means you actually help pay for a pen not the cat, which makes sense as cats will move on as they find their forever homes. Zsa Zsa is still receiving treatment and looking after her kittens, so will not move out for a little while. You can read more about her here.

One of the most important initiatives Cats Protection promote is TNR. Neutering is very high on their agenda and this makes us happy - well after the initial "ouch" of course!  Kitties like Zsa Zsa are indeed very thankful!

If you live in the UK (or anywhere else) and want to help, the Cats Protection website is excellent and gives very helpful info.

Mull over Monday!

If you feel so inclined you can read some of the history of the cat flap here, here and here! I managed to retrieve the original post from the dusty archives and it's found here. That was September 2009!!

Moving swiftly on ..

At her 17th Birthday Bash, Nellie saved the last dance for me!!
We was rockin' ;)

Here's the card I made her :)

Thanks Nellie :) I had a great time xox

A Dishevelled Sunday Selfie!

Try shaying that through clenched teeth!! My shibilants are shocking!

Today's word is "Ande"

The wonderful and loving Ande from Marg's Animals has taken her trip to the bridge.  
Marg is understandingly heartbroken and all of us send love and gentle purrs. If you haven't already, please go over and offer condolences and support  xx

Trying to make the entente more cordial!

After the scathing purrfurmance review and subsequent events it was decided it was necessary to bring in the arbitration service T.I.G.G.E.R. to try and resolve the ongoing conflict between CAT and TAT.

T.I.G.G.E.R. - Tabbies International, Gripe Grappling & Effecting Resolution - has undertaken the task of conciliation between the parties with great vigour and determination and sent their most dediCATed envoy to oversee the settlement negotiations.

He is taking his duties very seriously indeed!
