News and Features

As a result of the Coronavirus outbreak early this year and the steps being taken to contain it we have had to call a halt to all our plans for change.

HOMING of our remaining cats had to be suspended. All the cats were safe and well looked after by their fosterers throughout lockdown but we were able to announce that homing could begin again on July 20th. Since that date we have homed 7 more cats.

EVENTS All the year’s events have now been cancelled.

NEUTERING CAMPAIGN The Leeds 10 neutering campaign got off to a flying start but within a few days lockdown was announced and put a stop to that. The vets suspended all routine surgery and a cat could be neutered only after a risk assessment. We were able to have a few cats neutered where the situation was deemed to be urgent.

In September we were able to start the neutering campaign again but with far fewer cats being neutered.

In November a second lockdown was announced and the campaign suspended again.

We have assured all those who registered with us for the Leeds 10 neutering campaign that we will honour our promise to do those neuterings as soon as the vets are working normally again.

So what to put on the News Page of our brand new website? Has to be something uplifting.

Whilst we have all been social distancing and deprived of hugs our cats most certainly have not so here are some photos of cats that we, at Leeds Feline Friends, know and love ignoring social distancing and enjoying lots of hugs and cuddles.

DON’T KNOW THE CATS BUT JUST COULDN’T RESIST THIS ONE!

These guys, however, are not going to break the rules. Maybe not 2 metres but definitely social distancing feline style.
