Owl eggstravaganza!

These are just a few of the delightful owl-themed objects which have been generously donated to our Burleigh Street shop.

There are also many other attractive pictures and ornaments of birds and other animals.

If you love owls, do come along and browse.

We'd also like to thank Debenhams for donating the glass display units which show off all the ornaments most effectively.

Tabitha is Holly!

This pretty tabby girl was hit by a car and taken to the emergency vet last week. Fortunately it looks as though she'll make a full recovery, and her owner managed to make contact with us by phoning all the local vets asking if they'd taken in an injured female tabby.

Ideally all cats should be micro-chipped to make immediate identification possible. However, if your cat goes missing and is not chipped, do phone round vets, including ones that seem quite a long way away from your home. If an animal is found injured outside normal working hours, the closest available vet may be some distance away.

Also, remember that most "lost" cats have actually got shut in somewhere. Regardless of whether or not your cat is chipped, ask all your neighbours to check any sheds, garages, greenhouses etc. that may have been opened and later shut with your cat trapped inside.

Sadly it turns out that Tabitha isn't Holly after all.  The lady who had lost a tabby cat came down and Tabitha has no white on her at all, while Holly had a very small amount. So Tabitha is still looking either for the person who has lost her, or for a new permanent home.

This is Roxy, the Staffy who was brought in as a cruelty case. She loves everybody in spite of having been treated as a punch bag. Now fully fit and ready to go to a new home.

Please keep the donations coming, as with sales as good as this we need to keep the stock coming in.

Thanks and congratulations to Lorna and her team of volunteers who all worked so hard.
