A Sad Goodbye


A sad goodbye was said to Old Girl who died peacefully, with the help of the vet, last month. You may remember that Old Girl was the last of her sisters, four feral cats who came to live at the Sanctuary eighteen years ago and who were then not young. We think that Old Girl was probably in her very early twenties. She lived in the feed shed, helping to keep down the mice and rats, and training up two new generations of rescued feral cats. When she became frail last November she went to live in her ensuite accommodation in Janet’s bedroom. A far cry from her feral origins Old Girl could be picked up and loved and she just adored her cosy basket next to the radiator. You are very much missed by us all, Old Girl, and we hope that you are now reunited with your sisters playing in the sunshine.

New Arrivals

Teddy, Lucy, Mel and the Cats

When the Green Meadow Sanctuary had to close down due to the ill health of the compassionate people who founded it, the Sanctuary was asked to take three sheep and, yes, four feral cats. Well, the cats, one boy and three girls all siblings, true to their nature have not yet shown their faces long enough for their photo call but are comfortable in their own accommodation. The sheep on the other hand were happy to be photographed on arrival early in January. Teddy, seen here making her way out of her transport, is eighteen years young and Mum to Lucy who is eight years old and a little shy. Teddy walked down the ramp and into the stable almost unaided and immediately set about munching some hay. All three have settled very well indeed and now have their own pen next to some of the Sanctuary’s middle aged Boys and Girls and last year’s orphaned lambs.

Horatio Hedgehog

This young man has so far proved illusive for his photo call too being active at night. He was found rather the worse for wear some weeks back small and very under weight. He would most likely not have survived the rest of the winter. In his first week of munching his way through two sachets of cat food a day he put on 100grams and is still going. He has his own special box in the utility room.
