It’s Raining Cats

March 22nd, 2009 by Heidi

There has been a lot going on with the felines around here, and as I started writing this I realised that I hadn’t kept you posted on our barn cat visitors, so I should probably start there, before I introduce the new arrivals!


Giant leaps in George’s Place

March 2nd, 2009 by Heidi

This will be a very short post, and sadly lacking pictures, as I need to shut off my computer and relax for a bit before bed, but I really wanted to share with you the giant leaps in progress made in George’s Place today.


Cats from the barn

February 26th, 2009 by Heidi

As you may have read last Saturday we went out to a barn with Cat Rescue Network and came home with six cats! The two kittens were only making a pit stop and were collected on Sunday to move on to their ‘real’ foster home. I didn’t get a chance to take any pictures of them, so I am hoping their fosterer will take pity on me!


Cats & barns

Sadly this story starts with the passing of  an 82 year old farmer, who had amassed an unknown number of “barn” cats. Cat Rescue Network had gotten wind that these cats were to be eliminated “as pests”, and had managed gain a “stay of execution” at least until all of the other farm animals had been found homes. The farmer who has been feeding the animals allowed Cat Rescue Network and a few other groups to provide food & water to the cats and to arrange for some to be caught and hopefully re homed. (more…)

In all the excitement this week I forgot to post that on Saturday Jazz and Tango found a new home!


George’s Place

December 21st, 2008 by Heidi

We have a large basement room that was partially finished that is about 25ftx9ft, originally I had suggested to Steve that we could turn it into an English pub, with a bar and a dart board. Then we lost George. We both needed to do something and then it struck me that the room would be far more useful as a space for foster cats. As George came from a rescue it seemed to us that this would also be a rather fitting tribute to him.

Population fluctuation & Aspen sightings

November 29th, 2008 by Heidi

What an eventful day, since we got up this morning we have moved 102 bales of hay, reduced the chicken population by 5 roosters, won a race for a cat climber for George’s place and had two separate sightings of Aspen!
