Very Disappointed

I have to say that I am still waiting to hear from the Swansea Cat Protection all this time later. Obviously they are never going to contact me. I'm bitterly disappointed that I gave them all my precious work - over 35 crocheted cats which took me a year to make, plus all my cat ornaments - when there has been no feedback whatsoever. I have no idea whether my cats sold to help the charity. The couple of emails I sent ages ago were never answered :-(

If only they had given me some positive feedback I would have happily continued to donate more crafts and other things to this branch of Cats Protection. As it is I have felt very discouraged and haven't crocheted anything other than slippers for 18 months...

Five Kittens

My latest five cats, all kittens this time (around three and a half inches high) with various types of eyes and whiskers. They will join the others in Swansea and wait to be sold (hopefully) on the stall at the Gower Show on the 2nd August!

Swansea Cats Protection

A decision at last!!!

After months of soul searching about what to do with my crochet cat family - should I sell them on the internet or should I give them to charity? - I finally made a decision: to donate them to my local Swansea Cats Protection branch to sell on their stalls at events in the area over the coming months, and in their shop in the city - see this link. Hopefully you may see some of my cats here at some point.

Although really very sad to see all my cats leaving me yesterday (including many I never put on this blog), at least they (and a large box I included of beautiful cat ornaments in glass, silver, china and wood which I had collected over many years) will help to raise money for the much-needed Swansea and District Cats Protection funds. I have been assured that a photo or two will be sent to me soon showing some of the cats for sale, so I will add them to a new blog here, and also give details then of a great cattery and cat and dog grooming service for people in this area.

More as soon as I receive the photos!!

Four Move House!

Yesterday, I was delighted to see four cats go off to live with Frances and Catherine in their lovely home in Thornbury, near Bristol.
Here they are below with various other feline friends!

Borage, Speedwell, Clover Kitten and Mum Clover posing with Arthur, Anthony and Wagstaff!

Here's Speedwell with the sleeping George...

...and then all of them creeping up on him!

"Wake up and play!"

All photos taken by Catherine - thank you!

Columbine 2

The second cat in purple, a little better than the previous one of the same name, I think
