Winter is Coming – Urgent Appeal

At Assisi we have some elderly cats who really can't spend another cold winter in the cattery.   We are looking for people to foster them over the winter for a few months and hopefully indefinitely.   All they need is some food and  nice warm home. They demand very little attention as they sleep most of the time!   Assisi will cover the cost of any medication they need.   If you think you can help. please contact Assisi.
