Frequently Asked Questions


We are currently unable to take in any more cats.  We have approximately 30 cats that live here and they live in large outdoor enclosures in colonies. We do however rehome the cats we have here. If you are looking for older cats we do have some lovely ones to choose from.

Big Ears traps feral cats and kittens on its property and tames them. We then refer these animals on to other cat services, of which there are a number.  Below is a list of contacts for cats:
