|Lincoln Cat Care - (January News)
The First Nomina2005 saw us helping almost 1000 cats. What an achievement for our first year in operation. We homed over 300 and paid for 15 broken legs, 11 major operations and 200 neuters. Everyone has been so supportive and we cannot thank you all enough.
We’ve a few older cats in care at present, the eldest being 20, and we need to find a special kind of person for each of these. They must be prepared to perhaps share only a few years with them, but isn’t it important that the time left to them is the highest quality?
Could you offer a foster home to these treasures until a permanent one can be found?
Our food bills have decreased dramatically because of the amount of donated food and litter. This frees up funds which are better used on poorly pussies so please buy an odd can now and again.
As at this time of year last year we seem to have an influx of cats from families that are quitting the country for greener shores. Also we acquire the grieving cats of people that have sadly passed away. There is no reason why these cats should not settle in new homes.
The next few months we’d like to try to increase the number of monthly standing orders we receive. With all the large national charities getting TV advertising to attract these monthly commitments we need to ensure we get a share.
If you can commit to , say, £3, £5 or £10 each month then please phone Jenny on 01522 788597 or visit our website beehive.thisislincolnshire.co.uk/LCC
Allison has also agreed to act as our e-bay agent and so anything likely to fetch a better price on there she will deal with. We also save used postage stamps, courtesy of Brenda, and Felix tokens courtesy of Allison again. These Felix tokens are easy to overlook so please make sure you religiously cut them out and send to Brian, or drop them in at one of our events.
We also now have Cocksfoot grass in 50p packets. We can also supply larger amounts at cheaper rates, just contact Brian. This is beneficial to all cats but especially so in pots for indoor cats. The packets should be available at events or by contacting Brian. There are also a few of our 2006 calendars at £3.45, again from events January 21st At St Botolph’s Church Hall, Saxilby from 10am until 2pm) or from Joyce on 01522 683675.
If this year sees as many kittens as last then I know Gwen would like to find more foster carers. If you think you’d like to look after these fluff balls then contact Gwen on 01522 796089. We’ll supply all you need except the time and patience.
Very best wishes to you all for 2006, see you in February.
