Grantham ROCK: Plea to rehome cats before winter sets in

A cat rescue home in Grantham has had another busy summer – and is urging cat lovers to adopt a new addition to the family.

Cath Rowson runs Grantham Rescue of Cats and Kittens (ROCK) from her home in Redcross Street.

She said: “It’s been non-stop this summer.

“Pens, cages and rooms are overflowing with cats and kittens. We need homes before the cold weather and winter comes.”

All cats rehomed by ROCK are treated for fleas and worms, and are neutered. Neutering is something Cath is particularly keen to press home to cat owners, to avoid unwanted kittens being born.

She added: “As fast as one cat is being homed, often there is a waiting list of up to six at a time to come in to us.”

Help with the cost of neutering is available for those who need it.

Cath relies on donations to be able to care for the animals and holds regular fund-raising tombolas. The next one is coming up on Saturday, November 25, 9am-2pm, in the Isaac Newton Shopping Centre.

Regular donations can be made in food bins inside Morrisons, Kennelgate in London Road, and Downtown Garden Centre at Gonerby Moor. Alternatively, donations can be left on Cath’s doorstep, at 41 Redcross Street.
