And then there were 10!

I haven’t talked much about the little family, that arrived back in June, to spend the summer here with us, and now they have gone!


Distress call!

June 18th, 2010 by Heidi

Last week we had a distress call from a friend, one of her neighbour’s barn cats had moved into her barn and had four kittens. Which in itself wasn’t that big a problem, but then one of her tom cats ate one of the kittens! She didn’t know how to keep them safe and asked for our help.


While watching the Olympics …

February 14th, 2010 by Heidi

I thought I should distract myself from the Olympic coverage to post an update. It has been quite a week with kittens, coffee, court, doctors, barrels, ice carving, snow sculptures, an owl, Olympics & Olympic knitting! Some of them will require a post all of their own, which will be coming up in the next week, but for now here is a quick taster.


A day on the farm

April 23rd, 2009 by Heidi

Isn’t Spring supposed to be about joy and new life! Well we are not having a good week, and today has been especially difficult. This post should probably come with a warning, it is an honest account of the harder side of farming, rescue & life.


New arrivals!

April 21st, 2009 by Heidi

I was working on a post for today about all the planting that has been going on in our solarium, and to show you some pictures of the lovely seedlings that are slowly filling the room. But around here you can never be sure what will happen next, and generally me planning on anything results in one of our animals feeling the need to change the plans!


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!


Kitten update as promised

February 16th, 2009 by Heidi

Well as promised the other day, and probably rather overdue, here is a little update on our orphan kittens.


News from George’s Place

February 12th, 2009 by Heidi

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.
