Dedicated to the rescue, care & rehoming of stray, feral, abandoned, mistreated & unwanted cats & kittens


Twiggy is a Ragdoll female cat found lost and emaciated in a layby on a busy main road. Very weak and only days from death by starvation, the senior puss was driven straight to us by the van driver who found her. Severely dehydrated and with a terrible eye ulcer, she needed immediate medical attention and weeks of TLC at our South Cave isolation unit. Further tests showed that she also had an underlying heart condition, cardiomyopathy, which needs to be controlled with daily medication. After months of care and veterinary treatment, Twiggy has since fully recovered from her ordeal, and now lives happily with her devoted foster carer and large extended feline family.
Watch her rescue story in the videos below:

We catch up with Twiggy after some months in her new foster home where she is still living happily as a longterm foster cat 🙂

    YES, I am a UK tax payer and wish Caring for Cats Yorkshire & Humber, charity number 1087921, to claim Gift Aid on all donations I have made since 6th April 2000, and all donations I make from the date of this declaration, until I notify you otherwise.

Once recorded by us you need take no further action for as long as you continue to pay UK Income or Capital Gains Tax equal to, or greater than, the amount we would be reclaiming.
