Thanks for passing on the details of this and the other stories, and for your hard work and time too. I just checked out the website for this - and it's a great site with photo's and information on the cats, and you can make a donation too if you are able - I donated 30, which I hope will help in some small way. Take care & love to all on Care 2 - from Jo xx
