    Story

    My mum was a young widow and I clung to her and tried to protect her whilst she cared for me. As the years went on mums health declined further, I hated to leave her side. I hid behind my mum, for a few reasons. I became over protective. My mum got a car through Motability. I was able to drive her around to appointments, etc. When I lost my mum almost 12 years ago, the car had to go and I had to try to adapt to living by myself, managing all the bills by myself which was a shocker, a lot different to just handing over my monthly keep. My mum was my life and now I had no one at home to talk to, care for, and who loved me, I have never felt so alone and lost in my entire life. When I got my first rescue cat, I benefited greatly emotionally. Having a pet has helped me cope better in life, you might say a form of therapy. To feel love again in my home has given me a new lease. In all I have rescued and kept 3 cats of my own. But this year I have been catching a few stray cats in my cat trap and getting them neutered and trying to rehome them which has certainly been exhausting and stressful. I would have them all if I could but it’s not that simple is it. I am currently fostering one to try to find a home for him. The picture of ginger cat is my current foster cat. I would Like to make it easier to transport injured stray cats to and from vets to be checked, neutered, vaccinated and to their new home. I would also like to assist those that are house bound and in wheelchairs to get out of their homes for a social event, shops, meet up for a chin wag and laugh and maybe a country drive for a pub lunch, so they don’t feel so alone or forgotten about. My aim is to raise funds towards a second hand car which would greatly enable me to assist more in various aspects of charity and goodwill work that I would love to expand on. I don’t want anyone to experience loneliness, isolation, low self-esteem, nor to feel unloved whether it be animals or people.

      After a family came to see the catChing I was fostering, they loved him. However, the home check was not ideal. Therefore, I have now adopted him myself. However, we shall move on to any new strays that we are notified of or that come our way. I am still raising funds for wheels to help those in need. Thank you so much to those who have generously Donated so far. Please donate if you can. Any amount will greatly assist.
