Whinnybank News

While Sue was trapping ferals she saw a young ginger female in season who was being chased by the tom cats. She eventually managed to trap her after 2 weeks, knowing that she would be pregnant. Sue quickly realised that she was a domestic, not feral, & she was only about 8 months old – too young to be having kittens! After 3 weeks she became very ill & aborted her kittens, who were all very deformed. Nobody has come forward to say they are missing this young female, who had obviously been let out too young & before being neutered. Sue has known pregnant cats as young as 5 months old. Unfortunately, we are now facing a very large vet bill – if anyone can help with this it would be much appreciated. Please donate on our donation link.  Thank you  Penny will be up for homing once she has recovered from this dreadful ordeal. Newburgh Plum Market has sadly been cancelled this year. We do have plums available in both our shops at 50p per lb.

If you can offer a home to a cat, help at fundraising events, in our shops or at the sanctuary, please call Sue on 01337 840414, or see us online at
