2020 has been an extraordinary year for all of us, including Cats’ Aid.
We would like to reassure our supporters that our work of Intake, Rehoming, TNR and general help has continued throughout the year. TNR involved rescuing from many difficult situations, including an attic with a cat trapped behind a wall.
The cats didn’t observe Social Distancing and the kittens kept arriving! During the year to the end of Oct. we took in 54 cats, including pregnant moms, and we rehomed 79.
We have had to follow advice about contact with people and we have carried out ‘virtual’ home checks via Whatsapp. This has proved to be quite time-consuming, and we thank people for their patience.
We haven’t been able to hold Sales or fund-raising events this year, so our income has dropped. Of course we understand that many people are on reduced incomes at present and may not be able to continue their support. We really appreciate whatever support you can give and we assure everybody that our administration expenses are kept to an absolute minimum and that any money received goes directly to benefit the many cats in our care (58 at the end of Oct., including long-term.)
