While the health and wellbeing of the cats in our care is our foremost concern, the health and wellbeing of our volunteers and supporters comes a close second. Our priority now is paying the bills we have already incurred and providing care for the 73 cats and kittens currently with us. We regret to inform our community that all services are suspended until the situation improves and we are able to access our usual fundraising streams.
