We have a great history of successful cat homings through Whinnybank but very occasionally a cat is returned to us because they ‘don’t fit’ – this is often because a cat has been mistreated in their past & it just doesn’t work out in their new home. This was the case with a long haired black cat called Winger. He then disappeared last summer & Sue had written him off as a road accident case. However, a lady called Jackie called last week to say she had been feeding a long haired black cat up in the forest near Whinnybank since last October – it had taken her until to now to gain his confidence & get him in a basket. Sue was very pleased to recognise him as Winger – hopefully he has learned his lesson & won’t wander off again! Thanks to everyone who has donated cat food & blankets of late – it was all much appreciated & kept us going through the bad weather. On Monday this week a nice lady left some bags of train tracks & a box of trains outside our Newburgh shop. Sue was a bit late opening the shop & discovered that someone had stolen the box of trains, making the track unsellable. Did anyone see anything?
