Today is the 24th annual World Spay Day and to celebrate Portsmouth Cat Sitting is donating towards two spay/neuter programs near to Rachel’s heart. The first is local cat sanctuary “Penny’s Place” which is based in Portsmouth, run by a husband and wife team Penny and Kevin, who work tirelessly with many volunteers to help local cats that maybe lost, injured, abandoned, pregnant or unfortunately killed. The helpers involved with this sanctuary help cats in all hours and weathers with donations from local people and businesses. These wonderful kind people are proof that angels walk among us. If ever you have unwanted cat food or litter please consider donating it to them, Rachel is happy to collect it to pass on to Penny.
The second is Nine Lives Greece, a group of volunteers who help stray/abandoned cats on the streets of Athens through neutering, feeding, veterinary care and adoption. As many of you who holiday in Greece will know the cat situation is only getting worse with all the problems Greece has at present. Nine Lives have also recently written a lovely book about, well cats of course! All profits from the sale of this book will help the cats. Happy World Spay Day everyone! Link to the book here
