*******Our 48th Open Day raised an amazing £5,469*****
Plus we received so many donations of food which we cannot even begin to put a price on!!
We really are overwhelmed by how generous everybody has been this year and we cannot THANK YOU enough for you amazing support.

Here a few words from Chairman of the Trustees Christopher Russell:-
Perfect weather and it was a 15% rise in the net profit on the day, what could be better. So many thanks to all who made and gave, worked or spent to make our day so special. It was particularly rewarding to see so many new faces mingling with our loyal following and so many children taking so much interest in what we do. Special thanks to those heroes of the car park Colin Jinks, Colin Campbell, Alan Bray and Tom Potts, without whom there could have been chaos in our narrow lane. To Sylvia Ing, Rosemary Solomon and Tanya (Stem by Stem of Hythe) for gifts towards the plant stall, to Claire Jell, Mary Kavanagh, Di Thompson and Lesley Fingerhut for all the cakes. To Mandy Smith from The Traditional Butchers of Hythe for the superb barbeque meats. To Kirsty Streater, Mike Whibley, Peter and Di Taylor and Viv Jell for all their help and to the home team Claire, Tracey, Ellie, Adam and Debbie in setting it all up and putting it all away.
Thank you to anybody who we have left out. We hope you all had a great day.

The total amount raised from our Spring Fair/Members Day which was held on Sunday 26th May was £1,894.
That was from the sale of plants, homemade cakes, refreshments and bric a brac.
It was a great success and over £200 better than our total from last year.
We had so many friends, supporters and new faces join us for a splendid sunny afternoon. It was so busy that most of us said that felt like it was Open Day!!
The cats had lots of yummy treats and food donated to them too.
We thank you all so very much for your support.
We look forward to seeing you on our Open Day on Sunday July 21st for an even bigger and better day.

Jupiter is FIV positve which means he will have to live indoors only. He is nine years old and came from North London.
Jupiter’s previous owner saw our sanctuary online and loved the look of it so she handed him over to us in January 2018. He grew up in a colony of cats so he is not used to living in a house. She had visions of him being homed to a farm where he can live out his days happily catching rats and mice. Sadly, blood tests proved Jupiter to be FIV positive so he will have to live as an indoor cat. He has a lovely personality and is a friendly and confident boy. He needs time to gain your trust and loves affection and will head rub you to his hearts content. This last few weeks have been a struggle for Jupiter where he had an abscess on his tooth. After treatment and lots of rest and recuperation in the sick bay, he rejoined his FIV friends but he is not happy and getting bullied and stopped eating. He is back in the sick bay but he desperately needs a new home. It will take him a while to settle and he will be nervous, wary and will want to hide but we hope he will be a lovely pet. Do you have the time and patience for him? If you do, come up and meet him.
