South Ayrshire Cats Protection are looking for a new forever home for Freckles, this week.

She is a stunning three-year-old torte cat who is very affectionate and friendly - as you can see in her smiley picture! Freckles wouldn’t be so smiley in a home with other cats and dogs though but thrives on attention - even from all ages of children. Ultimately Freckles would like access to the great outdoors in her new home too. For a £50 adoption fee, all our cats are fully vaccinated, health checked, given worm and flea preventative treatment and microchipped. We take care to match the right cat to the right humans, and hopefully this results in a long lasting relationship. If you want to be part of Freckles future, please phone our office on 08453 714216.

The CP office is also moving to a new home this week! Last week we talked about expansion and after many years, in Prestwick Main Street (thanks to Town & County Pets/M Poole Dog Grooming for all their support over the years) our office is on the move to a more central location in Ayr. We are delighted to start a new era, this week with our move to office/shop front premises at River Street, just round the corner from the Carnegie Library. Whilst we will not have any cats at these premises, we will be able to deliver a fully functional service with the provision of neutering vouchers, rehoming information, as well as drop in help and advice/support on cat ownership from our trained volunteers. Information of current cats available will be on display due to video technology, and a small selection of fundraising/cats protection branded merchandise available. Our other fundraising initiatives will also be available at River Street, by dropping off rags/textiles for recycling or viewing Yellow Moon arts and craft products. Once up and running we hope to have regular sessions, during the monthly farmers market were a select one or two cats for rehoming, will be available to view for that morning only. This is a great opportunity for South Ayrshire to maximise our resources and care for a greater number of local cats, reducing our waiting list of 49 cats currently unwanted. We are always keen to hear from people who would like to volunteer in some capacity but please be aware it’s not necessarily cat care related aspects we need support with. Our recruiting campaign for new fosterers, either those with a spare room or capacity outdoors for a specialist pen, is still on going, with further information available from the office. We will be keeping our telephone number and various email/web/facebook accounts, but we would ask for your patience if there is a slight delay in responding to enquiries over the next week or two. We look forward to welcoming you at our new River Street base!
