Carole’s Cat Chronicles, 3 March 2017

Over the past few years I have been updating everyone who reads the LRA newsletter about the homeless cats at the Leaping Frog.  Telling you about the  ups and downs, trials and tribulations of caring for these innocent furry creatures.  It has been, and is, an ongoing challenge to keep them safe from human intervention, who do not have their best welfare at heart.

The most important things these cats need are, food, shelter, veterinary care when necessary and possible, but also the companionship of the volunteers who stroke them, talk to them and give them a sense of belonging.

I have included some pics showing the family.

I would like to add that these 9 cats you see in the pictures are now 9-10 years old.  They each have a name and a character. They are all related in some way.  Either brothers, sisters or cousins.

Apologies for the photos last week which cut off the heads of some of the cats. This was something to do with PDF and non compatible software.  (It sounds credible, but I don’t really understand computers!)
