PUSSYCAT LODGE TRUST 

Provide shelter and medical treatment to sick, mistreated or abandoned cats and kittens, re-homing to suitable homes after vetting prospective owners. We are made aware of these animals by contact from members of the public, or other bodies such as vets and the local council. We also provide help and advice to members of the public or give details of someone who can help.
