Chatteris Cats Protection appealing for new homes
Chatteris Cats Protection is hoping Citizen readers can give the gift of a new home to some of its rescued animals this festive season, as the charity gets ready for its fundraising Christmas fair this weekend.
The Chatteris, St Ives and District branch of the charity is holding its annual event at St Ives Corn Exchange on Saturday between 10am and 2pm.
Among the highlights will be face painting, glitter tattoos and nail painting, as well as stalls selling second-hand jewellery, arts and crafts, books, bric-a-brac, homemade cakes and produce and much more.
There will also be children and adult tombolas and a Christmas raffle, with prizes including tea for two at The Shard in London, a helicopter flying lesson and Christmas hampers.
Meanwhile, the organisation is hoping people can help re-home some of its cats and kittens
Boris and Lenny are handsome young chaps and are both under a year old. They love to play and have lots of cuddles and would ideally suit families who are happy to spend lots of time playing.
Kittens Jasmine and Sebastian are 12-weeks-old. They are very shy and nervous at the moment, but Sebastian does enjoy a cuddle.
With a quiet home and patient owners they will become perfect pets for someone who wants a companion. They would be happy either on their own or with another cat and can go either together or separately.
All the cats have been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and are up to date with flea and worm treatment.
A charity spokesman said: “All we ask for is an adoption fee which does not cover all of the above but goes towards it, so if people feel able to donate on top of this we are grateful.”
Details of all cats available and adoption fees can be found at: www.chatteris.cats.org.uk/ or by ringing the charity on 0845 647 2180.
