The sanctuary itself consists of a number of chalets where each cat can have their own personal space. Central to these chalels are communal areas where the cats can eat, play or just watch the world go by. ln addition there is a separate area of the sanctuary, accessible to cats from Jackie's front garden.
This area provides food and shelter for the local stray and feral cats. lt has also become an area where the local wildlife will come for food and water.
This poor Tom cat was found dirty and hungry living round the Bet Fred shop in December 2010. Jackie iook him in, fed him and cleaned him up and he was quickly rehomed in 2011 and is now neulered, happy and loved,
