    While we always need volunteers to help clean out and cuddle the cats here at the sanctuary, our shops are often forgotten by those who want to help! 

    Our Diss shop is currently in desperate need of more helpers to welcome customers and man the till. It may not be hands on with the cats but you really will be an intergral part of our Feline Care family. Our shops account for almost half our income so without them we would be totally unable to care for any cats - they are essential!  

    Please ring or text Louise on 07840 921363 if you can offer your time. Thank you!

    We're still collecting all manner of goodies that we reycle to raise funds for our cats. Recycling can be dropped off at either of our Charity Shops during normal shop opening times or here at the sanctuary any morning, before 1pm.

    Here's a list of everything we collect:

    Biscuit wrappers - any brand of sweet biscuit
    Plastic trigger heads - from kitchen sprays, etc
    Tassimo pods - please don't rinse them out!
    Anti-perspirant & deodorant aerosols
    Printer cartridges - Epson, Canon, Kodak & HP
    Used postage stamps

    Please get in touch if you would like to collect for us in your workplace as we can send you a sign to put up!

    *Please note, sadly we no longer accept coffee packaging other than Tassimo as the scheme we collected through has now closed.

    We rehomed Tiggy with a couple in Paget Adams Drive, Dereham, on Saturday 2nd August and within hours she escaped through an open cat flap. We were told that she was missing the following day and within hours our amazing volunteers had leafleted the whole area asking people to look out for her.

    We have had several sightings although only one has been confirmed - along the back of gardens on Rosavella Drive, only one road from where she had escaped. Other possible sightings have been in Eckling Grange and Windmill Avenue although they are unconfirmed.

    If you spot Tiggy please ring Feline Care on 07840 712289 or our volunteer in Dereham, Sarah, on 07960 124976.

    Thank you and please keep your fingers crossed for Tiggy's safe return.

    UPDATE: Dear Tiggy has now been found, safe and well. She is home with us and will now be looking for a new retirement home where she will be loved and cherished and looked after properly!

    Tesco have very kindly offered us a huge selection of dates to go into their stores and collect cash and goods for our pussy cats.

    Store collections are a fantastic fundraiser for us but sadly finding enthusiastic helpers is really hard.

    Can you lend a hand at your local store? Over the next couple of months we need helpers in Norwich, Dereham, Diss, Lowestoft and Caister.

    If you can give a couple or three hours of your time please email felinecarecats [at] gmail [dot] com or leave a message on 01953 718529.

    Thank you!

    Many of you will already be well aware of Plug's horrific injuries after being hit in the face by rebound from a high velocity rifle.

    He has been left with a shattered jaw, making eating difficult and grooming impossible. As a feral cat we had the challenge of domesticating him before he could be treated for the old injury and weeks later we were stroking him for the first time.

    We assumed he'd been hit by a car until his first x-rays revealed the metal fragments embedded in his face and we realised he'd been victim of a gamekeeper's bad aim. We'll never know how he managed to survive in the wild.

    Sadly the x-rays also revealed the full extent of the break and the remodelling required to give him his life back. He needs very specialist surgery and we were lucky enough to be given a contact at the internationally renowned Fitzpatrick Referrals in Surrey. We jumped at the chance, despite the expense, because we knew Plug had no choice.

    Plug has already had his first visit to Surrey (coping better than us with the long journey!) and most of the metal fragments have now been surgically removed. He has had CT scans and we're now waiting for his surgeon to decide how best to tackle the next stage of rebuilding his jaw.

    Our lovely Facebook supporters encouraged us to set up Plug's Care Fund and to date £3,642 has been donated towards his treatment! We're also very grateful to the EDP newspaper who picked up his story from Facebook and printed him on their front page as well as nearly a full page inside the paper!

    Follow his journey on our Facebook page (see bottom of this page!) and if you can donate towards his care fund please click here!

    **UPDATE**
    Plug's Care Fund has now raised well beyond his costs and kind souls are still donating as any 'spare' in his fund will go towards the veterinary care of other pussy cats.

    Plug's now home from his surgery in Surrey at Fitzpatrick Referrals, recovering from the final surgery to rebuild his jaw. We wish him a speedy recovery and it's lovely to have him home!
