Visiting us…

Feeding times vary depending on the time of the year but are usually around 2:00pm. In the summer when it gets very hot, this can be a little later. You can usually find someone caring for the cats in the late afternoons.

If you would like to know more about our cats and the work we do, this is a good time to visit. Our cats love affection and are always on the lookout for a new pair of hands! Prepare to fall in love with at least one cat or kitten!!

You can come along at feeding time and make a fuss of the cats; they love attention and affection. Bring your family along; if you and your family are unsure of animals and cats in particular this is a very good way to better understand them and their needs. If you bring young children, please keep them under supervision.
