The Shelter/Cattery

In April 2011 we opened our purpose built rescue cattery, based in Waltham Abbey, with cat friendly accommodation, including 18 large pens, a communal facility, (for some of the longer term residents), with a small courtyard for the cats to have some air, a Mum and kitten unit, a feral section, and an Isolation unit. We also still have home fosterers for pregnant mums & kittens and for 'taming/socialisation' of feral kittens, to help them get used to a home environment, and have lots of handling and attention.
 
We understand the importance of the cats’ mental well being as well as its physical. We have first-rate volunteers on board plus some superb vets. We strive to ensure that the cats in our care are happy, healthy and contented.
 
With an endless stream of cats passing though our gates we are always grateful for donations of cat food and litter for the cattery, we also get through lots of newspapers, cleaning cloths, and latex gloves. In fact we are able to make use of many many things, including your time! So if you think you can help us in anyway please give us a call.
 
Cat food and litter for the cattery is always gratefully received if you can spare some.
       
 
If you wish to visit the new shelter you are welcome to do so during our opening hours - the cats are always pleased if you turn up with a tin of cat food or a toy for them...! 

Our shelter is fairly tucked away behind the WOODBINE PUB ON HONEY LANE (please do NOT park in the pub car park they WILL tow you away), our entrance is in Woodgreen Road. Please do not drive into the shelter unless you are collecting a cat as we are very limited for space and our resident cats will be roaming!
