2014 was a turning point for C.L.A.W.S.   During the summer of that year we took in 20 cats, 4 elderly ones whose owners could no longer look after them and 16, all about 2 years old, that had never been handled.   In one fell swoop this doubled the number of cats we had in care and changed the focus of our work forever.

C.L.A.W.S. had always been known for its willingness to take in elderly, infirm and traumatised cats but the majority of its work had been re-homing cats.    It soon became obvious that the new intake of cats would not be going anywhere for some considerable time.

This put an enormous strain on our resources.  It led to the immediate conversion of the feral pen to house the 4 elderly cats and eventually to the construction of the two new enclosures for long term residents.   In the meantime we had to accommodate them in existing pens and even use rooms in the house.

4 years down the line 3 of the 4 elderly cats (2 now 22 years old and 1 18 years old) are still with us and 11 of the traumatised cats have been brought round and found loving homes – an amazing achievement.   The other five, although comfortable with people they know, will never adapt to life in a normal home so will stay with C.L.A.W.S. in the new enclosures which have been designed to closely resemble a domestic environment.

Throughout this turbulent period we have been encouraged by our loyal supporters, many of whom have been with us since 1995 when C.L.A.W.S. began.   Thank you all !


CAT OF THE MONTH

Dougal


   Dougal  
Dougal

DOUGAL is about 6 years old.

He came to C.L.A.W.S. in 2015 when his then owner heartlessly ejected him from the family home.   He was bewildered and very frightened but gradually began to recover from his ordeal and regain his trust in the human race.

It wasn’t too long before he was ready to go to a new home and we were delighted when a retired lady with experience of nervous cats, who was home a lot of the time,  got in touch looking for a cat.  She came to meet the cats and decided Dougal was the one for her.

They spent 3 happy years together but she developed dementia and was no longer able to care for him so he returned to C.L.A.W.S.
   
His friendly character soon came to the fore.    Now he likes nothing more than to lie beside you, rolling over on to his back to have his tummy tickled   He is a very engaging lad and very chatty.

He needs a quiet INDOOR home (adults only), as he was abused by children, with no other animals and an owner who will spend plenty of time with him.
