FOUR tiny bundles of fur now have new homes to go to following a Rehoming Day held by the Cats Protection charity at Laxfield Village Hall on Saturday.
The Framlingham and Saxmundham branch covers towns and villages from Diss towards the coast and took along seven of the cats in its care to find new owners.
Rehoming officer Miranda Noddings said: “It’s the first time we have held a Rehoming Day in Laxfield and we found new homes for four kittens and also raised in the region of £400 for the charity, so it was a successful event.”
Similar days have been held in the past at Debenham, Saxmundham and around the county. Saturday’s event included stalls, cakes for sale and a tombola.
Sadly, two cats which the charity would dearly love to rehome did not find new owners on the day.
They are Spike and Crispy, two five-year-old neutered males who were brought up together since they were kittens and want to stay together. Spike is an apricot tabby who is very placid, friendly and a lap cat, while Crispy is black and shy but loves to be outside hunting and then come back to be with his friend.
The branch also has a 14-year-old black and white cat called Oliver who comes from Diss and also needs a home.
Enquiries about any of the cats available can be made by calling 01728 723499.
The Cats Protection charity, founded in 1927, is the UK’s leading feline welfare charity helping around 235,000 cats and kittens every year via over 260 volunteer-run branches, 29 adoption centres and its homing centre.
The Framlingham and Saxmundham branch was formed in 1989 and now homes between 200 and 300 cats and kittens each year. Until rehomed, cats and kittens are placed with volunteer fosterers.
