The Susan Davis Sanctuary
We are all deeply saddened at the recent loss of our “lovely Susan”. On the evening of 31st January Susan lost her battle for life after her sudden illness. We took this photo of Susan just 4 weeks before her passing, it caught her doing what she loved best. As usual she had come to see her Twinkle babies. She would come through the gate with a smile and greet you with a big 'Sue hug' and a kiss and then say …”OK where is everyone (meaning all our Twinkle cats and kittens) I must go and have some cuddles”.
In this photo Sue is giving Aslan (one of our rescues) a kiss and a cuddle. She was always at her happiest when she was cuddling or caring for someone or something.
Over the years, Sue and her husband Spike have fostered many cats and kittens for us, a few they kept as family additions and many more Sue nurtured and got well, before helping them move onto new and better lives.
During our neutering campaigns Sue not only helped us look after the cats and kittens with her gentle cuddles and kind words, she would also become ‘house mummy’, and make sure that the rest of us always had a hot meal and a cuddle when needed. There are no words for the loss we all feel right now. We've all lost a wonderful friend and Spike and their 2 beautiful daughters have lost a devoted wife and Mum.
At the request of Susans' husband Spike and daughters Taidi and Gemini we have set up this page so that her good friends can make a contribution towards the new foster cages that Susan had often metioned and that we would like to build in Susan's memory.
We needed to raise £9800 to build and create these new, safe and comfortable, temporary retreat houses for sick and injured homeless cats, which was finally achieved early 2016, BUT we still need to maintain the cages and so please consider a small donation to keep the memories flowing
