Despite today being pretty overcast and definitely cooler, the temperature in some of the cage rooms was still uncomfortable. As a way to try and keep Holding cooler, newspapers had been taped to the window.
Unfortunately Shamus in particular, was very vocal, complaining to me about the loss of his view. There really is no pleasing some cats! :) I did manage to hold him up so he could peer through the gaps though.
Holding residents are almost the same as last week. We have Tootsie, Ellie, Grace, Shamus, Shadow and of course Crystal in the garden. Shadow was very nervous last week and it was lovely to let her out today and be greeted with lots of leg rubs. She also let me gently lift her back into her little house, once I'd got it all clean and tidy. There is little chance of any of these guys moving into the main cat rooms as adoptions have been thin on the ground.
Nev has made it out into Room 1. Here he is looking a little more relaxed.

I couldn't leave today without my cuddle and just as I came out of the room there was a phone call from a potential adopter wanting to come and see him. I really hope they fall in love with him, its not hard to do :) He is such a sweetheart, a little shy and nervous, but nothing a bit of TLC can't take care of.
I'm going to show you a room a week and today is the turn of the cats in Room 2.

And finally I made a little video in the garden with Crystal.
Kim (Cat Care Manager) and Emma (Deputy Cat Care Manager) popped into the shelter this morning before setting off to visit another rescue centre. Yorkshire Cat Rescue, originally Haworth Animal Welfare was founded in 1992 and is situated between Keighly and Haworth. Their facilities and set up in general is very different to the Sheffield Cats Shelter.
She added "A big thank you to Yorkshire Cat Rescue for letting us come and visit!"
So if you're looking for a cat or you know someone who is, please share the shelters facebook page so we can try and get these beautiful cats into a home they deserve :)
