Animal Rescue

Posted on 10th August 2011 in animal rescue/ days out/ kittens/ new pet

If you are looking for a new family pet, I urge you to visit your local animal rescue centre first. All the animals there deserve a loving home.

Even if you aren’t currently looking for a pet they can make a great day out.

We recently visited two nearby animal shelters, the first Mistley Place Park was a little ramshakle but the cafe was surprisingly good and it was obvious a lot of people went there simply for that. Which is great as all the profits go towards caring for the animals.

There we met lots of chickens and an enormous goat!

and lots of ducks

But they also had owls, pigs, horses, ponies, rabbits, guinea pigs, cats and dogs.

From there we went on to SESAW as they were having an open day. They had many dogs and cats all looking for a new home. We saw so many cute kittens!

It’s so easy to fall in love with the kittens but do spare a thought for the older cats too. They don’t want to live the rest of their lives in a cage – they want a home and some loving owners.

If you are thinking about getting a kitten, why not get an older cat too? They will keep each other company and will both have a lot to offer you in terms of love.

Wherever you live in the country, if you are looking for a cat  Cat Chat is worth checking first as it offers homing pages to all the cat rescues free of charge.

My two cats came from Crescent Cat Rescue – it’s really nice to know that I’ve taken them away from a life in a cage.

Funny Cats

I believe my favourite to be ‘killer smile’ although ‘ribbons’ and ‘innocent cat’ made me LOL too. Hence them being called LOLcats I guess!
