My Name is Pauline Wright and I am the Rescue Manager. In 1988 I opened a small Boarding Cattery and although I had always loved cats I had never been in contact with any of the Pedigree Breeds.
The cattery soon welcomed Siamese, Burmese, Birmans and Persians and eventually I was asked to keep or re home one of my boarders, a large handsome Persian boy who we called Teddy. We quickly became besotted by our new arrival and planned to breed Persians. My husband bought me two breeding queens, but he died shortly afterwards. I did not have the heart to carry on with the plans, but decided to start a rescue centre for Persians instead.
I have worked in co operation with another cattery owner from Wakefield, Audrey Rae for many years. The Cats Protection League and the RSPCA soon heard about our work and we take in hundreds of cats between us each year.
Our rescue cats all have the freedom of our large house and gardens. They are only penned when they first come to the centre, whilst awaiting health checks, vaccinations and the results of their blood tests.
My daughter Clare also helps out significantly, she is an expert groomer and both of us are able to administer medications including insulin injections and tablets. Clare is an artist, and arranges lots of fundraising events within the art world, if you could help, please let us know.
We also offer the space in the cattery to boarders to help bring in money for the rescue, so if you are going on holiday and would like to know your pussy cats are safe and with experienced hands, please get in touch.
Finally we have 3 ladies who assist with cats who are south of the boarder. Jayne is based in Buckingham and has been helping us for years collecting, fostering and transporting cats. Maria is new to the rescue and is based in Bristol and also helps foster and collect furbabies in the south. Finally, Kym generally helps out with our online presence, facebook, twitter, Instagram – why not follow us to learn more about what we do? All of us are Persian mad, as you can imagine ?
