Please make sure microchip details for your cats/dogs/rabbits are up to date. If you’ve rehomed from us, details can be changed into your name free of charge, but it’s the owner’s responsibility to make sure this is done. Please ask your vet to check your pet’s microchip, and email info@sesaw.co.uk for advice if it needs to be changed.

It’s December already and everyone is rushing around with too much to do before Christmas. I’m glad you made time to read the blog because I want to send a great big THANK YOU to all our friends. We really appreciate the support you give us at events, your help at the Sanctuary and the kind donations you bring to SESAW.

The fundraising diary for next year is already filling up and new volunteers are always needed for the events and for animal care. Please leave a message on the ansaphone or email if you can spare a few hours one morning each week to look after some of the cats, dogs, rabbits, pigs and goodness knows what else. Same applies if you only have an occasional day to spare at, on or before events. Either way, the volunteers are a friendly bunch and will give you a warm welcome as you can see in the photo of Mandy, Michelle and young Henry, taking me to meet my public at the Christmas Fair.

Mum says we will not rehome during the holiday period but prospective owners are welcome to view the animals, 10am -1pm, Thursday to Sunday until Friday 22nd December. We will reopen 10am to 1pm for Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th January and then back to our usual times 10am to 1pm Thursday to Sunday from 18th January.

Best wishes from all of us to all of you for Christmas and the New Year. I’m off to my bed by the Rayburn because it’s much too cold out there for me, Kenny (the Boss) Chihuahua.

Kenny and the team would like to thank everyone who visited our Christmas Fair in Long Melford on Sunday 19th, and made the day such a great success.  We raised an amazing £4,100 to help the animals in our care.  This couldn’t have been done without our hardworking volunteers, supporters and the public who turned up on the day.  It was lovely to see some of the dogs we’ve rehomed and their lovely new owners.  We received generous donations from previous adopters – all together a great start to the festive season!

He’s done it again! While I was meeting my Public at our Autumn Fair, Ollie (the Black) Cat wrote our news last month. Mind you, I feel sorry for him now, he has a big abscess on his face and is under house arrest! Don’t worry, he’s on the mend and will soon be trying to take my place as your SESAW correspondent again.

Despite the chilly mornings, we all enjoy an early run around the field but those of us who are “vertically challenged” come in with a damp undercarriage! And I don’t mean just dogs – Rupert the baby pig squeals in disgust when the grass is wet. You should have seen Button’s face when the little porker first arrived and chased her around Mum’s legs. Our resident Norfolk Terrier cross was not impressed!

Ollie says I must tell you we have many cats and kittens including poor little Peabody who is back since his “happy ending” didn’t work out. As top dog around here I don’t have a great affinity with cats but can’t help feeling sorry for him, especially as so many humans overlook us black animals. Eight year old Izzy and Chloe are also looking for a home together for the second time. They were rehomed by SESAW years ago but unfortunately their owner passed away. They are a friendly pair although Izzy is very shy. I would love to see two year old Domino, Sooty and Sweep rehomed. They are three feral cats in need of a farm with a cosy barn and a kind person to keep an eye on them.

The volunteers are holding a Christmas Fair at The Old School, Long Melford, CO10 9DX, 10-3pm on 19th November. There will be lots of festive things on offer plus lots of prizes in our big raffle. Mary is busy preparing her ever popular Tombola which never disappoints the winners.

Remember to keep your pets safe during bonfire season. I can’t impress upon you enough how scary fireworks are to all animals, including me, Kenny (the Boss) Chihuahua.

Ollie’s October News

Damp, misty October has arrived, time to honour the household with my presence and give you a cat’s eye view of the SESAW news.

Mother has been kept busy with a parade of wildlife casualties including blackbirds, jackdaws, pigeons, an owl and a baby squirrel.   Most of them are now happily released into their natural habitat, much to my relief.

I was particularly pleased about another departure when that pesky Billy found a foster home.   I’ve had to circumnavigate the garden for months to avoid meeting the active old Jack Russell cross, made me cross I can tell you!

I’m very worried about Erica and her five kittens.   My poor pregnant friend was dumped to have her babies in the wilderness.   They were very nervous when the picture was taken but are now coming around nicely and just need some kindness and TLC in new homes.   I appeal to all humans, please have your cats neutered so this doesn’t happen to other unfortunates.   It makes us much nicer to live with and I’m sure Kenneth would ask the same for all dogs.

There is still time to book your team at our Quiz Night in St.Luke’s Church Hall, Church Street, Tiptree, CO5 0SU.   Doors open at 7pm on 7th October for 7.30pm start, phone 01621 818137 for tickets at £5 each, top prize is a meal for two at the Bull in Great Totham.   A week later the Fundraisers are holding a “£1 Sale”, 11-2pm Saturday 14th October at the Ansell Centre, Hadleigh Suffolk IP7 5DL.   Tables are still available at our Christmas Fair, 10-3pm Sunday 19th November at the Old School Long Melford CO10 9DX.   Phone 01206 263269 to book.  

The sun is finally out, hopefully warming my throne above the haystack so that’s all from me, Ollie (the Black) Cat.
