PoC cat charity donation for February 2014

Sorry for the late notification. There were 2,692 comments in Feb (the count actually goes to 4th March because of this late post). The starting and closing number of comments were respectively: 29,295 now and 26,603 at close of February 2014.

At 5 cents per comment that makes $135 USD which is £81. Please tell me your favoured cat charity to receive this donation.

This month my preference is for a small British cat charity. I believe that this is fair as we had an American charity last month who was our lovely Dee and the month before that it was The Cat House on the Kings, another American charity.

My thanks to all PoC regulars for commenting and supporting PoC. Also my thanks to one-off or irregular visitors for commenting and sharing.

PoC cat charity donation for February 2014 — 38 Comments

  1. If no one else has a suggestion for a British charity, coincidentally I am right now writing an article with pictures about Pat of ‘Ark on the Edge’ an Animal Sanctuary at Woodland, County Durham where there are many cats in care. I’m just waiting for Pat to get back to me with answers to some questions I thought would interest PoC readers, to complete my article.
    Her Sanctuary is having a bit of a rough time financially because of being confused with a similarly named Sanctuary ‘Rainbow Ark’ where the owner was evicted and all the animals sent to other Sanctuaries all over England. Unfortunately to our shock and horror many of those animals are in a sorry state, but thankfully the money raised for them well covered their transport and is covering their vets bills etc too. I will write more about that when we know what the RSPCA intend to do about it.
    This is just a suggestion as I know Dylan the fund raising cat from Ark on the Edge had a PoC donation at one time and someone else may of course think of another cat charity in need.

    • You are a great saleslady 😉 Just joking but your suggestion has been well received! At the moment that is the choice unless someone comes up with something more pressing.

      Thanks Ruth. I’ll make a decision shortly.

      • lol must be from selling wallpaper fifty years ago lol
        Hoping to have the article ready later today, Pat has been very busy with cat stuff. A string of coincidences because Danielle from the Ark has been writing some more articles for PoC too.

      • Makes me all broody but our Walter would marmalise a kitten 🙁 Only Jozef can put him in his place.
        He’s on Neighbourhood Watch in the windows with ‘cats silly season’ about to begin, he thunders down the stairs to teach any trespassers on his territory a lesson 😉

  2. Brilliant idea Ruth, not only does Pat care for the animals to the highest standard and find good kind homes for them but she also encourages visitors and children to the sanctuary where they can learn for themselves all about animal care. This is of course the ideal way for carers of the future to learn about kindness and respect for animals. I love that kitten’s little pink mouth.

  3. I ditto the suggestion. I don’t feel I put in my nickels worth last month. Having my own hard cat issues. Perhaps I’ll explain it all soon.

    • Oh sorry Dorothy, yes tell us about it when you feel able. I’ll be thinking of you and hoping things get better soon xx

      • Oh Ruth, thanks so much, it means a lot to me. I’d rather have you, Babz or Jo write it up though. Not only is it hard, but I can’t tell it well, with my lack of writing skills.

        • Don’t put yourself down Dorothy, you write beautifully from the heart!
          Sending you love and strength all the way from England xx

      • Sorry, I don’t mean to be mysterious. I am writing privately to Dee for advice. Everyone is alive. Bigfoot is doing well, considering. It is about my YellowCat, the little feral. Thanks for caring my friends, and the kind words. Update at another time.

        • Phew I was so worried I daren’t ask.
          Dee is THE BEST advisor here on ferals, I hope you get it sorted between you.

  4. Hi guys

    i’ve sent 3 articles off tonight – one of them is an update from the gorgeous dylan.
    Another one of molly and babies (from day they were born to present)
    And another of an abandoned ill cat
    enjoy xx


    • Do you have any local Sanctuaries there Kylee? Just wondering how it is in NZ for cats, if as many are relinquished as in the USA and here.

  6. Just a quick note to firstly say that I’m sorry for being so slow in getting around to making this donation to Ark On the Edge and secondly to say right now at about 9:40 PM GMT I am unable to get onto their website to make a donation. Please bear with me and I will try again tomorrow morning 1st thing. Don’t worry, I have not forgotten this donation.

  7. Here is the confirmation of the February donation to Arc on the Edge. Sorry for the delay which initially was caused because their website was not functioning properly. I did in fact struggle a bit this time as well but the donation has been made:

  8. That’s wonderful Michael 🙂 and you can be sure it will be spent wisely.
    Pat says on the Ark facebook page:
    ‘Just got notification that Michael Broad PoC has made us a donation. thankyou Michael for considering us again. We appreciate it very much. Pat’
