From foster to forever home

The power of community

10 years on – Cats

From Valerie West, the “first lady” of cats as it were!

“In the beginning our help for cats and kittens was through financial and practical support for our local SPA. A few volunteers began to foster cats and kittens from the refuge and this gradually grew into the full-scale programme we have today. Here are a few of our earliest fosterlings – just look at them now!”

1. Alice is enjoying a life of glamping luxury at Le Camp in Tarn et Garonne

2. Toulouse (was Bianca) is living in the Lot – she may only have three legs but has never let it hold her back.
