What We Do
Our sole objective is to help needy cats in the Inverness and surrounding area. Stray cats are taken into our shelter and kept for a minimum of two weeks, which gives an owner plenty of time to come forward, and also gives us time to assess the cat’s character and behaviour to see what type of home would best suit that cat. Any urgent vet treatment is provided immediately, and if the cat is not claimed we would have it neutered, vaccinated and microchipped before offering it for adoption.. No cat is ever put to sleep unless advised by a vet in the case of severe illness or injury.
Cats signed over to us by an owner are usually kept for a minimum of one week, so that our assessment of the cat, along with information provided by the owner, enables us to make the best match for that cat when looking for its new home. We ask that owners relinquishing cats to our care give a minimum donation to help cover day-to-day expenses, and also that the cat is neutered and vaccinated before coming to us.
After adoption we maintain contact with the new owner, and we are always available to advise if necessary.
Donations and all other monies received are used to finance vet costs, food and litter, maintenance of the cat cabins, and the hosting of our website, and ALL other expenses are met by ourselves. Our meticulously kept accounts and cat work records are available to view on request.
Inverness Council TEC Services contact us if an unfortunate cat is picked up from the roadside, and we will collect the cat and scan for a microchip so that an owner may be informed, a very sad but necessary aspect of our work.
