The Bury St Edmunds branch of Cats Protection has been running for 30 years. Originally the co-ordinator was Pat Greenhalgh and the branch was based at her home where we had ten large heated pens, with outdoor runs and a kitten house with accommodation for 8 kitten pens. In addition, we had six foster mums with individual pens who took in longer staying cats like pregnant queens and RTAs, or the nervous ones who needed time to get used to being handled.
After Pat retired the branch had to undergo a major change. All our cats are now out with foster mums scattered around the area. We now have 11 pens. We have a Welfare Officer who arranges for the cats to come in and be placed with a fosterer and a Homing Officer to try to match up a cat to a suitable home. We also have Home Visitors who visit prospective homes.
