Poor Thomas has had quite a run of bad luck since he came into the sanctuary in Oct 2013. He has had problems with his ears and eyes and now he looks a bit battered but he’s still a big handsome boy to us.
He has just been released from a few months in the sick bay with most of that time wearing a buster collar. He has gone through surgery three times and we’ve had to administer eye drops three times a day but he has been such a good patient and always stayed a lovely friendly boy. We are sure that he is over the worst and hopefully he can live out the rest of his days with no more problems. He is only six years old and likes other cats.
When he is loose in the sanctuary he is not very approachable but when you get him one to one he is very affectionate and laps up the attention. We feel that he deserves a chance of a loving new home with somebody who can give him the attention he deserves. Possibly to go with another cat but not dogs or children as he can be a little nervous.

Sad news to hear that the actress Liz Smith has passed away.
Many of you may not know that she was the Patron of Rhodes Minnis Cat Sanctuary and a devoted cat lover and friend who has supported us since it began in the 1970’s.

We have put together an Amazon wish list for our homeless cats. If you are feeling generous and wish to buy a present for our cats, that would be so very kind of you. We appreciate every single item we have donated to us and we cannot thank you all enough for your generosity.
The items on our wish list are mostly toys. Having such a large number of cats we sure do go through a lot! We want our cats to play and interact so hopefully these toys will enrich their lives whilst they are in our care.

Male/Female
6 years old
From River near Dover
Siblings Freddie (on left, white hair on belly) and Lily (on right) were displaced in a move. They are desperate to find a loving new home to preferably an older person/couple who have no other pets. They are friendly cats who love attention and are very close so must be kept together. Freddie has been described as being a lap cat who loves to play whereas Lily isn’t too keen on being picked up. Both love being brushed and going outside. They have both been micro hipped. Can you give these sweet siblings a home they deserve? Come and meet them.
