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.

The total amount raised for our Christmas Fair was a brilliant £1,336.
Our sixth really successful fund raiser this year! Once again everything made and given by staff and supporters and a great vote of confidence by all who came and enjoyed the morning.
A great big thank you to all our customers and to the team who helped set it all up and cleared it all away. We all work really hard to make sure that our events are a success and we are so very grateful for all your support. The money raised will feed and keep warm all of the cats in our care.

We need to find Oscar a new home as soon as possible as he is upsetting his housemates!
Originally from Dover, seven year old Oscar came into the sanctuary with four other cats after their owner became unwell. He suffers from asthma which is controlled with a steroid injection every 4-6 weeks.
We fell in love with his cheeky, loving character and decided to keep him as a ‘house’ cat here in the Seathwaite Bungalow. He has lived alongside the four other house cats who we thought he would get along with but sadly this has not been the case. He has become a bit too cocky and beating up the other house cats, to the extent where they are all too scared to come into their own house!
We are very sad that it has turned out this way and we will miss him greatly but we feel he would best suit a home on his own with no other cats. He enjoys going out and is a very friendly boy who will be a great pet for somebody who understands his needs.

*************UPDATE 13/12/16*******************

We are happy to say that we found Oscar a new home. We wish him all the best and we are sure that he will be happier away from his former housemates who he sadly did not get on with. We will miss him as he is such a character but it was for the best. The other housecats seem happier too!

This is a new appeal to get these lovely boys a home. They are unhappy in the sanctuary and spend most of their time inside their pen. Misty is exploring more but Thomas is a bit reluctant. They enjoy it when we spend time with them and they love being brushed . They have good appetites and are clean. Can you give them the home they deserve. Please come and meet them.
Thomas is 9 years old and Misty is 8 years old.
Males From Folkestone
Thomas (black and white) and Misty (tabby and white) had to come into us because their previous owner moved into a residential care home. They are both very friendly, sweet cats but timid so they need to find somebody who is patient and willing to spend time with them to get them out of their shell. They have only ever lived indoors so they are finding the sanctuary a bit scary. We recommend that they have a quiet home, are homed together, as indoor cats or maybe access to secure garden with no children, dogs or other cats. Misty has a Grade 2 heart murmur which is only a slight concern.
N.B. every cat that needs a home is just as equal as the other but we believe that these cats need a little bit more publicity to find them a happy home as they are not enjoying life in the sanctuary.
