An animal rescue charity in Long Sutton urgently needs foster homes for 19 cats.

PJ Cat Rescue has put out a plea for help because two of its regular foster carers are moving home and can no longer look after so many cats at one time.

One of the foster carers moving home is Cynthia Webber, who describes looking after the rescued felines as “one of the most rewarding experiences of my life”.

Cynthia told us: “The cats are wonderful, and all the love you give them is returned ten times over.

“Being a foster mummy or daddy to these pussycats, who are sometimes traumatised, will add so much to your life.”

Cynthia says the main qualities a foster carer needs are love and patience.

She’s enjoyed watching her charges emerge from whatever has happened to them in the past to “become beautiful, well-rounded feline ‘people’, ready to go on to new homes.

Cynthia said: “To those of you thinking that you would love to do this, but wouldn’t know where to start, take the first step by coming into our shop or phoning us for information.

“PJ Cat Rescue has a great team of experienced cat people, all here to support and guide you all the way.

“I love every minute of it.”
