Welcome to the warmest little kitty heaven in the South East, where human-feline affection is as important as daily meal times.
Our sanctuary is the dream child of a devoted pet lover and was inspired by her special-needs feline, Mr Cuddles. It is set up to offer a home-from-home environment to healthy kitties in need of affection, attention and rehabilitation, who can no longer stay with their families and need to find a new loving home.
Although we are a nation of cat lovers, sometimes circumstances make it objectively unviable for some of us to keep our beloved companions. This is where Catcuddles comes in to help.
We are passionate about looking after cats as if they were our own when they most need us, we get them all up-to-date with their health checks, provide routine care and assess their behaviour so we can find each one of them a responsible, deserving forever home. We always put the kitties' welfare first because that is what we believe a true-to-cause cat charity should be about.
We have an open-door policy during the period your kitty is waiting for its new home and are fully transparent in our financial funding and how we allocate public donations and any other funding we are able to secure for our cause.
We currently hold "small charity" status. We have been fortunate enough in this testing economic climate to reach the donation threshold so are now in a position to apply to the Charity Commission for registration, so that we can secure more resources and strengthen our financial support and extend our activities. Any reserve funding we have is put towards rescuing stray kitties from perishing, particularly pregnant stray mums, vulnerable kittens and elderly cats. We also help with feral colonies, depending on resources and local community support.
Our next main objective is to help senior citizens and people with disabilities to keep their felines when they have pressure to give them up, by helping them with vet trips and general hands-on care. We believe pets are the cheapest yet most precious form of therapy to humans and they should remain in loving familiar environments. If we can help make this possible for as many as our resources can support, it will be worth the effort.
Thanks for taking the time to browse through our website. We hope you let us know if there is a way you can contribute, by donating time, money, or other resources towards promoting and caring for a healthy urban feline population.
