Get Active: volunteer, experience, connect with the natural world

We're so sad to hear the news about Paul O'Grady's passing.  He did so much for people and animals, both in Britain and around the world.  He was a true gentleman, compassion, kind, caring and funny.  All our thoughts are with his family, people and animals, his friends and of course everyone at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.  They have set up a Tribute Fund for Paul O'Grady which you can donate to here.  Rest in peace, Paul, and thank you for all you did to bring animals to us on our screens and for all you did for them.  You will be so missed.

Could you foster cats?

Posted on


On reading my Cats Protection members' magazine last night (which is a great read, by the way, with lots of news and information about cats), I came across an appeal which I thought I'd pass on....

Cats Protection are looking for people to be volunteer cat fosterers.

Fostering, they point out, is a great way to help homeless cats and kittens.  If you can't have a cat long term, you can have one in the short term.  Fosterers take cats or kittens into their homes on a temporary basis.  They look after their every need until a new home can be found. 

Fosterers with Cats Protection are linked to a local adoption centre or volunteer-run branch, so you'll be working with other cat enthusiasts to help the cats in your area and you'll need to be comfortable working with a team of people.   Therte's training and support for anyone wanting to become a fosterer - you can see a demo of the induction here

Trouble having a think about what to type next....or, more likely, wondering what's for dinner...

There are adoption centres and volunteer-run branches all over the country.  Being a fosterer is a great way to do something practical for cats and help them, without owning a cat long term.  I volunteered for Cats Protection and it's a wonderful charity.

Miaow for now!
