PLEASE NOTE: The Cats Protection Homing and Information Centre at Blackdown Garden Centre 
 is NOT part of Taunton & Wellington Branch.

The Branch has its own cats and kittens for adoption.  We do not list all our foster cats/kittens on our website until they are ready for homing, so please phone to see if we have the right cat for you!

 Zipping for Pogo!

On 28 October, Ann and David, Branch Coordinators, are joining other CP volunteers and staff from across the UK, to ‘fly’ the Velocity Big Zipper across the old slate quarries at Penrhyn Quarry, Bethesda, in Snowdonia. At 1,560 metres it is the longest zipline in Europe and the fastest in the world, where participants can achieve speeds up to over 100mph (165kph)! Wheeeeeee!

'We have set ourselves modest targets to raise funds which will all go towards the veterinary costs ...for a very special little kitten in our care – Pogo, who came to us at only a few days old . Against all odds Pogo has now reached her fourth month although during her short life she has suffered a number of setbacks, including a sudden and severe collapse at just four weeks old. At the time she defied belief as the three vets caring for her on emergency admission could not believe that she recovered in an oxygen tent after a couple of hours after being in an almost coma like state. She remains a very tiny cat but with a great deal of tenacity and character!

Our vets have been superbly supportive in her care, but further investigations will need to be carried out to assess her future more fully.
