|Did you know that there are hundreds of abandoned cats living outside on the streets of your City?
Most of these cats have been left to fend for themselves by their families. Their lives are nothing but misery, they are not only hungry and thirsty but living in constant danger and fear of abuse.
Kitty in the City Cat Rescue has been set up by committed, experienced volunteers, (no paid staff!!) determined to make a difference to the lives of these cats, they desperately need it.
We are local, independent and receive no grants or help from government.
It is likely that most if not all of the cats needing help are riddled with fleas and worms, many could be suffering from painful infections or other untreated health problems. Each winter some will freeze to death, the others will suffer trying to survive in extreme conditions without any shelter and scraps of food.
Kitty in the City will provide a warm refuge, veterinary care, good food and
lots of love.
No cat will be put to sleep because he or she is ‘’difficult to rehome’’. Shy
cats will be gently and patiently socialised and our elderly guests will enjoy
peace and comfort until the perfect home for them comes along.
If you care about the plight of street cats and want to help do something about
it, this is your chance, please act today !!
Please read the poem ‘’Rescued Cat’’ and commit to helping us either by welcoming
a cat into your home or by making a donation to help us save lives.
Thank you for caring...

Once I was a lonely cat, just looking for
I had no place to go, no one to call my own.
I wandered up and down the streets, in rain in heat and snow.
I ate whatever I could find, I was always on the go.
My skin would itch, my feet were sore, my body ached with
And no one stopped to give a pat, or gently say my name.
never saw a loving glance, I was always on the run.
For people thought that hurting me was really lots
Then one day I heard a voice so gentle, kind and sweet,
And arms so soft reached down to me and took me off my feet.
one again will hurt you," was whispered in my ear.
"You'll have a home to call your own where you will know
be dry, you will be warm, you'll have enough to eat,"
"and rest assured that
when you sleep, your dreams will all be sweet."
was afraid I must admit, I've lived so long in fear.
I can't remember when I
let a human come so near.
And as she tended to my wounds, and bathed and brushed my fur.
She told me about the rescue group and what it meant to her.
She said, "We are a circle, a line that never ends."
"And in the centre
there is you protected by new friends."
"And all around you are the ones that
check the pounds,
and those that share their home after you've been found."
all the other folk are searching near and far."
"To find the perfect home
for you, where you can be a star."
She said, "There is a family, that's waiting patiently,
and pretty soon we'll find them, just you wait and see."
they'll join our circle they'll help to make it grow,
so there'll be
more like you, who have no place to go."
I waited very patiently, the days they came and went.
Today's the day I thought, my family will be sent.
Then just when I began to think it wasn't meant to be,
there were people standing there just gazing down at me.
I knew them in a heart beat, I could tell they felt it too.
They said, "We have been waiting for a special cat like you.
"Now every night I say a prayer to all the gods that be.
"Thank you for the life I live and all you've given me.
But most of all protect the cats in the pound and on the street.
And send a Rescue Person to lift them off their feet."
is dedicated to all the cats still living on the streets, with
your help we can
in to safety!
