branches all over the UK, Reading and District Branch have many
foster cats in care at any one time. These cats could be dumped
kittens, stray cats, cats abandoned when owners move house, feline
victims of divorce settlements, cats whose owners are too old to
care for them, sick cats and kittens or those with injuries
sustained on the streets and of course some are just no longer
Many of our cats live with fosterers in their own homes. But in
addition to our home fosterers we have the use of Cat Cabins which
are spacious pens both in the garden of fosterers but also retained
at a local cattery. These cabins provide a secure and comfortable
home in which the resident cat or cats can rest and recover while
awaiting a loving new home. The cabins have heating, lighting, a
raised level where the cats can sit and watch the outside world,
plenty of toys to play with, and an enclosed area where they can
have some privacy, complete with a comfy bed.
Caring for the cats in our care takes funds. Of course we are
very grateful to anyone who donates to us via our Shop or any of our
fund raising events. But if you feel you would like something a
little more personal then perhaps Cat Cabin Sponsorship is the thing
If anyone would like to sponsor a cat cabin, you can sign up via
our website, or ask for an application form either from our Shop or
through our helpline on 0118 9403005. The minimum donation we ask is
£4 a month via standing order or scheduled PayPal donation, or a
yearly sponsorship of £48. Cat Cabin Sponsorship also makes a lovely
thoughtful present for someone special. As well as our quarterly
newsletter Cat Cabin News, sponsors receive a certificate confirming
their sponsorship and recognition at Christmas.
All our Cat Cabins are fitted with lighting and electricity
so we can give each occupant a nice warm heat pad in winter. There are removable outside shutters so that in the heat of the summer the cats have as much air as possible and a chance to experience outside noise and smells. In the winter the shutters protect them from the worst of the elements.
You will need a PayPal account to pay for your sponsorship online. If you don’t already have one, you can sign up for a free personal account in the next step.
