Melksham cat charity in adoption call

Wiltshire Times: Call to adopt cats during National Pet Month Call to adopt cats during National Pet Month

A Melksham cat charity is hoping a national campaign will inspire people in the town to open their homes to a new family member.

The Cats Action Trust North and West Wiltshire is calling on local people to adopt its 30 rescued cats during National Pet Month, which runs until May 5.

Trust volunteer Lilian Wordley said: “Whatever the reason a cat needs to be re-homed we always try to help, but we are limited by the number of pens available to provide a temporary home and the ongoing expenses of foot and veterinary bills.

“We are an independent charity which relies entirely upon local donations, so it’s vitally important that we find loving new owners for the animals as soon as possible.”

Over the years, I have tried twice to adopt cats via the Cats Action Trust only to be told that because I work full time, I would not be considered as a good home. I have had cats for over 20 years, always two together so they are company for each other while I am out. I live in a village, away from a road with fields behind me, and they have free access in and out of my house via a cat flap. I would have thought I was in an ideal position to offer a cat a home, but not according to this organisation. I will never approach them again.
