Ollie’s November News

Please share this!

Kenneth has been out and about again, this time he met his public at our £1 Sale in Newton Green last month.   As usual, he enjoyed lots of cuddles with the visitors including two cute little girls.   One was the granddaughter belonging to one of our volunteers.   The other was Evie who he met last year after she and some friends sold homemade cakes during their summer holiday to raise money for SESAW.   Thank you to everyone who helped raise £685 which will go towards caring for the rescued animals this winter.  

Our last fundraising event of the year is our Christmas Fair, 10-3pm on Sunday 17th November at the Old School, Long Melford, CO10 9DX.     There will be gifts, cards decorations, clothes and accessories, pet items, books, CDs, DVDs, a big tombola and raffle.    Refreshments and snacks available including lots of tasty homemade cake from our talented supporters.  

Meanwhile, please remember to keep your pets safe during the firework season, there are lots of ways to help your animals, ask your Vet for advice.   Don’t forget about wildlife either.   Check for hedgehogs before lighting the bonfire, they love nesting in the leaves and twigs.

Whilst thinking about the garden, this may be a good time to install a bird feeding station if you don’t already have one.   Of course this will be a great temptation to me and my kind so position it where cats cannot reach it.   Despite the recent rain, the Environment Agency says water levels are low, creating a small pond would help birds and amphibians.   Your county Wildlife Trust can advise you.   Thinking about tasty snacks, it’s time for dinner before finding a cosy bed for me, Ollie (the Black) Cat.

Evie and Kenny
