💞 All looking for loving, safe new homes 💞



Paul has a genuine fear of flying, and has NEVER flown. Paul had to go in a plane, a few weeks ago to be accepted for his up and coming challenge. This is such a BRAVE feat that Paul is undertaking for us and a MASSIVE COMMITMENT especially with his fear of flying AND to take this INCREDIBLE LEAP shows his DEDICATION to all the cats in our care – both permanent and all those looking for loving new homes.

It would be FANTASTIC if you could come along on the 6th August at 3.30pm to support his BRAVE LEAP for Feline Welfare Cats – we really hope to see you there 😻

I, Paul Harvey, am doing a sponsored Tandem Skydive in aid of Feline Welfare on the 6th August 2019 at Sandown Airfield. My first plane flight was only a few weeks ago and now I want to throw myself out of a fully functional plane. I must be MAD.

Feline Welfare have been rescuing since 1980 and during that time have taken many cats/kittens who have been ‘unhomeable’. We feel it is very wrong to confine a cat for an extended length of time, although we do try very hard to offer them a homely environment whilst they are in our care but sometimes the time they have to wait to catch someone’s eye is endless. Not all cats are happy to live in a ‘multi cat household’ but we do have 21 at present with us and 20 in permanent foster homes – all these cats will live out their lives with us or in their foster homes with us paying for any Veterinary treatment and in some cases providing food and cat litter as well.

To have such a large number of permanent cats is a great commitment and as you can imagine a great expense !!! We don’t skimp on food or the care lavished on them but we do rely on the generosity of our supporters to enable us to provide for all our feline friends, whether they be waiting patiently for new homes or are living out their natural lives with us.

We receive no government funding. We rely entirely on donations and proceeds from our fundraising stalls enabling us to carry out our work; rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming our feline friends as well as our all important neutering program. We are always available to give advice and practical help where possible – we do not have opening hours as we never close

Sadly a little tortoishell cat was found, with a lead, tied to a fence in the Cowes area yesterday (3/8) morning. This was a deliberate act as the lead was tied, it WASN’T a cat who had escaped and the lead had become caught up 😿

💞 This little girl is now safe and being cared for. She was very heavily flea infested …. but not anymore. She is not microchipped 💞

If you have lost a tortoishell cat, not necessarily in the Cowes area, but anywhere on the Island, although it is quite likely to be Cowes or the surrounding area, please do call us asap on 521778 – anytime.

We will need proof of ownership before releasing this little cat.

🐾 If anyone has any information about this incident we would love to hear from in COMPLETE confidence of course 🐾

Thank You SO much xx

 EVERY year we have endless phone calls – morning, noon and night – that is fine because we are always here to help. These phone calls concern pregnant cats, cats in the process of giving birth and getting into difficulty, problems following birth for either ‘Mum’ and or their kittens, including death and premature kittens who are being witnessed as they fade.

THIS IS THE REALITY – it is the Mum who is initially raped by, quite often, a number of toms, its her who carries the kittens for 9 weeks, it is her who has to go through quite often painful labour, and sometimes complications for what MORE homeless kittens with some ending up in unsuitable homes… and so the cycle continues… 

Accidents can happen yes BUT if your kitten is spayed and the boys neutered at 4 months of age NONE OF THIS WILL HAPPEN !!!!!We are here 24/7 to help – to advise AND to help cat/kitten owners to get their pets spayed/neutered. We have kept our prices the same for several years, thanks to Pet Doctors. We are subsidizing the cost and are happy to continue to do so.

It isn’t a glorious occasion for your pet to produce a litter especially when help is at hand. Suffering, neglect and misery will continue again this year which is so, so sad for the animals concerned. PLEASE HELP BY NEUTERING/SPAYING YOUR PET (cat/kitten – dog/puppy – rabbit etc etc) you are after all preventing SUFFERING because when those kittens etc leave you you no longer have any control how that pet is going to be treated over the next 18 years or more. 



‘We Not Only Rehome But Also Run A Sanctuary For 40 of our Feline Friends



Please help the ever increasing problems with over breeding on the Isle of Wight.
A responsible owner will want to do their very best for their much loved pet,
If you are on a low income and unable to pay the full Veterinary cost for neutering/spaying you are welcome to call us on 521778 (answer machine at times)
We also try to encourage microchipping at the time of neutering as this is the safest and most effective way of identifying your pet and yourself as the owner.
Please call Nikki on 521778
