Harry with Zoey

Today, as I am writing this article it is 1st September which is not only Spring Day but also GINGER CAT APPRECIATION DAY and here are some of the ginger cats we have at the Shelter.  The majority of ginger cats are male and apart from your Moggies, gingers appear in all the different breeds such as Persians, Munchkins, Manx and American and European Shorthairs and so on.

Gingers tend to be adventurous, courageous, playful but also independent and generally love their food. 

On the photos we have Ginger the feral cat who raised enough funds to build a further 3 cabanas/enclosures. He is the cat who was caught in a snare in Glenferness and it took 25 days of trying to trap him before we could get him out of the snare which was wrapped around his body. He and his best friend Callie have their own cabana.

Then we have FIV positive Harry, who appeared on the doorstep of the Cattery 26 December 2018 with a huge saucer sized wound, which, much to the amazement of the Vets totally healed and he now lives in the bedroom of the farmhouse.

Then Mojo our long-haired handsome boy, still a teenager and a work in progress as still very skittish but food wins him over.


Cup-cake again a teenager, runs free at the shelter, tho’ locked up at night.
Sunshine, still a kitten but full of on-going snuffles, such a playful cat and full of beans.
And last, Uriel our cat with FeLV, who just loves attention and for whom we need to build a cabana as he needs more space
