Change in Donation system

 

Some of you may have seen a change in the donation buttons on the website and Facebook, but we have taken the decision to join Charities Aid Foundation and to use their Caf Donate platform.

We have taken this decision after comments from some of our supporters and the increase in costs being made to us by Charity Checkout.

We are really looking forward to this new relationship with The Charities Aid Foundation and believe this will be a long and happy venture

Sadly, the only downside to the transfer is that it means that regular donators will need to cancel their payments to Charity Checkout and to start again with Caf Donate, we will of course help with this in any way we can, but so far, all comments have been positive about using Caf Donate. There are so many easy options for you to use and many more we have yet to pursue.

During the next couple of months, we will be contacting everyone by email to let them know of this and with this link to Caf Donate https://cafdonate.cafonline.org/6950 .

We thank you for your past support and hope that we can move forward with this new venture together.

Lunch and sleep time for the 3 kitts (all girls it turns out) that we recently caught at Barcelo Club reception. We were going to feed them up, neuter them and return them asap.But the day after we caught them their tree and a big bush they knew as home were pulled out for redevelopment work. Luckily 1 of them has a good home to go to soon.

Recently we had our stand at Foal farm animal rescue in Kent, although the weather forecast was not good we were very lucky and apart from a few drops of rain we stayed dry.
We thank all of you that came to say hi and to those of you that either donated or purchased some of our items Both Cat and I ( Alun) enjoyed talking to you about our cause and hearing your stories and meeting your rescue pets, they were all so well behaved.
We thank Foal farm for inviting us again, and would like to thank Mikki pet products for the kind donation of merchadise, some shown here as we were setting up.
We look forward to our next event, which we hope wont be too long away.

We recently caught 43 cats in five days for neutering!!, 

One location where there were 14 cats living, was in an industrial estate which was extremely dangerous for the cats and kittens because it was a steel yard with heavy machinery and equipment on the move all the time.

There was also no food or water, one of the mother cats was sick and it showed us that she had been eating lots of plastic wire in desperation for something to eat. Luckily we were able to relocate most of the cats after they were neutered thanks to the help of a very kind Twinkle supporter.

And as if things are not bad enough, another 3 kittens found dumped at rubbish bins in Antigua, and these one are sick as well. Arrangments have been made to get them veterinary treatment.

This really needs to stop now, not only is it irresponsible, but Twinkle cannot deal with anymore

Earlier this week we had a call from a gentleman called Jose regarding a mummy cat and her kittens in a very unsafe area in El Charco. Once there it was obvious why one of the kittens had been killed, there were cars, vans and all sort of vehicles rushing by.

Initialy a trap was set, but without success, so it was down to being a human octopus, Jose lifted the boat and I grabbed in all directions whilst mummy watched from a distance, Anyway 3 hours later mum and 3 kitts were in the car.

The upturned boat with one kitt sitting just in front.

Chispita & her mum Leoncia are STILL waiting for someone to love and adopt them. They came to Twinkle in 2015, from a violent & physically abusive home. They are so, so sweet and would love a proper home. I wish we could give them the home they want but we have so many cats. If you got to know these two beauties, I know you would love them. They are a bit shy with strangers but that's understandable because of what they went through. They are lovely and would be lost without each other, so they must stay together.

Gomez, formerly known as Brownie, is looking absolutely brilliant. Since going to his new home with Gill and Ryan he's had life changing surgery on his eyes, 1 eye had to be removed because it was already so badly damaged, the other eye was being damaged by in-growing eyelashes. Since his surgery he's recovered really well & you can actually see his right eye, which we couldn't before and it looks great.

 

It's certain Gomez will need constant suportive treatment, but at least he is in good company with Ray.

 

Thank you Gill and Ryan for not only adopting Gomez but for providing him with the best treatment possible and the most loving home.

Here are Gomez and Ray slowly coming round to becoming housemates

Do you remember Stanley ?, the adorable boy we found last month with an old break to his elbow, the break couldn't be fixed because it had fused long ago.

On Thursday we took Stanley to our vets because he was continually getting bleeding sores on his 'wrist' from using that to walk on because he couldn't use his leg.

Our garden has no soft grass, just gravel and cement which made it difficult for Stanley to use. After much discussion at the clinic and on our vets advise we opted to have his damaged leg amputated.

This was not our first choice because of the cost and time it will take for Stanley to recover but it was the only choice.The same night of his big operation Stanley was eating and proudly showing off his stitches. He needs daily pain medication and wound cleaning and regular check ups. But so far, Stanley looks much happier and totally unfazed by it all.

Romeo who was one of our garden cats, has decided that being indoors is great fun, so has sneaked in and taken up the position on one of the chairs.

He's so happy he's even snoring.

Our lovely Cilla has been suffering from a sore patch on her eye since last year, we've tried lots of different antibiotics that the vet has prescribed, but nothing has worked. So the other month our vet suggested that we have a biopsy done, which we did. We recenctly had the results back, and the sad news is that it's an aggressive type of skin cancer.

Sadly there is no cure, but we will keep doing all we can to keep her safe and happy.
