Our Latest Project
New cat pens
We have been raising money for some time now to help make the lives of
the cats in our rescue more comfortable while they wait to be re-homed
The project has been kick stated from the planning stage to the "doing"
stage as we have been very lucky to have been awarded a donation from
the lovely people at Pets At Home, which is going to be used to fund new
The pens are being built by PedigreePens of Tewkesbury and we hope to
have them installed by the second week of June 2010.
The pens will be made of the highest quality materials giving the cats
and kittens in our care the very best in cat pen luxury, and will be
fully heated to provide warmth in in the colder months as well as
providing good ventilation in the warmer months.
If all goes well the new pens should look like the artists impression
So the next stage is to clear out the old pens and do the ground work
for the new pens to be sited on.
Stage one has begun...
the cats and kittens have been temporally
re-housed at our our Cannock site so that we can start taking down the
As you can see, the old pens have served a purpose but being made of
wood they were in constant need of repair as the elements and time have
caused them to deteriorate.
The old pens have all been removed and the ground levelled out for the
concrete plinth for the new pens has been laid.
We have laid a nice new tiled surface on the concrete to give a clean
surface to have the new pens installed on....this was done by Karl
Steadman and Lee Alder with some excellent grouting skills by Gail
Steadman and Mac Haynes to keep the costs down.
The Cats Whiskers Rescue would especially like to thank Lee for his time
and efforts over the weekend of 5th and 6th of June to help us get the
surface ready in time for the pens to be installed on the 14th June.
The Pens have arrived......
The Pens have been delivered and will soon be fully installed.
There will be a few bits and pieces to sort out after they've been
finished..we had a few cracked tiles that need to be replaced, but we
expect to be up and running in two weeks time.
We're all very excited about the project, the biggest one we've under taken
the history of the charities existence and we're looking forward to the
first of the new batch of rescue cats to "christen" the pens.
The Pens are up and are now being put to the use we intended.
there were a few problems to get over but all things considered we
achieved the goal we set out to do...we are now the proud owners of some
very nice uPVC Pens
