Sandy is a large gorgeous ginger and white boy who is looking for a very special new home. He arrived at Katz Castle some months ago as a stray, but, as he was not adopted, he became a popular resident at the shelter. However he decided after a while to return back to where he’d originally been living rough which meant crossing some busy roads. Although he is dearly loved by everyone at Katz Castle, we cannot have the worry of him doing that again, so he is looking for a new loving home a good distance away from the area, and with someone who will spend lots of time with him.
Sandy is an extremely friendly and affectionate boy who loves to be stroked. However he can sometimes be unpredictable as we believe he has been cruelly treated in the past, although he has mellowed considerably whilst living at the shelter. Sandy is 4/5 years old. He is a big cat but he has become a bit of a ‘plumpkin’ whilst living at Katz Castle as he loves his food. Sandy would not be suitable to live with children, and he does not like other cats or dogs.
Katz Castle has been nominated for the Petplan and the Association of Dogs and Cats Homes (ADCH) 2015 Animal Charity Awards, which celebrate the outstanding work of staff and volunteers in animal charities and not-for-profit organisations across the UK, Ireland and Channel Islands.
These inspirational awards recognise teams and individuals within the animal charity sector who have gone that extra mile to help rescue and rehome animals in need. The nominations are judged by an impartial and independent panel of key industry representatives.
Last year Katz Castle owner Ann Knowles won Pet Plan's Animal Charity Volunteer of the Year award and was recently featured in the Daily Mirror. You can read the article here.
This is Striper checking out the latest food donations from some of our very kind supporters. All the cat food people donate helps feed the large family of cats we look after and find new homes for. We are very grateful for any donation, large or small, and you can drop them off during our opening hours - and meet some of the cats while you are here!
This means you can also help us care for the many cats looking for homes, and our residents, by shopping online and having the donated items delivered direct to Katz Castle. You can choose from food, treats, scratching posts, toys, and bedding, although cat food is always a priority please. Please click on our Amazon Wist list to see what the cats at the shelter would currently like to receive.
All donations - big and small, are gratefully received by our cats. Thank you also to all those generous people who continue to send cat food from our wish list.
