From the 20th July this branch is unable to admit any cats.We have a much reduced capacity owing to serious illness in our volunteers'
'In the medium to longer term the branch is hoping to recruit new fosterers in our area.If you have time energy and transport with space in a secure garden for a cabin please contact us via the help line or this web site.We can also can use a foster home inside a house IF a designated room is available with washable floors and no soft furnishings where quarantine can be guaranteed for new admissions.'
'Also the branch needs a Homing coordinator who lives in our area and knows it well with daily access to a vehicle to enable home checks.Apply through the help line or web site.'
Training and expenses will be available for these voluntary posts.
CAT OF THE MONTH
This lovely pair keep getting overlooked, maybe because they need to stay together. They are so close it would be unfiar to split them. Dudley is so affectionate, he listens to every word his fosterer says, he has his head on one side as if he if concentrating and takes it all in. He rubs round her legs and if she has time to sit down he is there on her knee. Dolly follows her brothers lead as not as confident. They both love the family dog, mind you he is used to cats being in charge. So please if you have room for a pair of cats please give us a ring or contact us by email. They will want to play out once settled so need a home away from busy roads and would love a garden to explore.
Do you love cats and would you like to be one of our valuable team.

OUR NEW OTLEY SHOP IS OPEN
Its at the bottom of Market Street.So far you have done us proud with some wonderful donations. Some real quality items from small pieces of furniture to designer clothes. Lots of bric a brac. The window display is finished, it looks grand. Thanks to the new Otley team. We do however need lots more as expect many of the goods in the shop to be snapped up as there are some real bargains.
We need your help so we can help more cats, we want our shop to make money to pay our vet and food bills, but also we want our shop to be there for information and advice and for folks to report catty problems in our area.
We certainly need extra money this month because we have become a victim of the overnight freak weather . One fosterer was mopping out at midnight. The hailstones were the size of golf balls and have wrecked the corrugated roof on two pens. The cats were safe as there is a mesh under the roof, so no chance of an escape but were a bit wet.Hope the tarpaulin holds until we can get the repairs done. I am told lots of cars have been damaged, it must have been scary.

Owing to the amount of feral cat work that we deal with as a branch, it is not suprising that we come across some difficult or far from ideal situations. We try our very best to trap, neuter, health check, flea and worm feral cats before returning them to site, however this is not always as straight forward as it sounds.
There are times when we are alerted to cats living in places that are unsafe or where they are unwelcome and at risk of persecution or starvation. Of course it is then impossible to return them. We are therefore hoping to find a home for 5 cats who are currently living behind some flats in Leeds. They have already been terrorised by a dog, and soon their feeder will be moving house. If anybody can help we need a small holding, stables, or a site with a large garden away from built up areas to relocate this family. They will make sure that any mice/rats stay at bay!
Please get in touch if you can help or spread the word, as this group of cats will not be the only ones who will need a new outdoor home this year. This group of cats were in a bit of a state when we were called to help. Since neutering they have blossomed.
Once they lose their food supply they will soon end up in a state again. Don't let this happen to them again. Even if we had room to take in these cats it isn't what they want. They are outdoor cats and don't want to be locked up in a pen.They deserve a safe place so they can continue to enjoy life.
