Tribute to Jane Eccles

On February 27th, 2017 we had to say goodbye to a talented illustrator and wonderful woman. Jane created the most magical illustrations whilst retaining the ability to make them look effortless and spontaneous. Jane, a passionate animal lover, had produced some beautiful drawings for CHAT, some of which can be seen on our cat's profiles pages 

Born in Iran, Jane moved to London as a small child, and went on to study at St Martin's, and Chelsea School of Art. She later settled in Hampshire with husband Graham, son Theo, and the famous Celeste - a small grey cat that quickly became the focus of many of her illustrations.

Sadly her struggle with metastatic breast cancer ended her life prematurely.  https://youtu.be/7rUMSAkFZZQ

 

March 2017 appeal - adult black or black and white cats

Why not give a home to one our lovely adult cats this month?

 Sadly overlooked due to their fur colour and age we have many long-termers at the shelter at the moment. Most of them are around 4 to 8 years old, healthy and full of beans. Some are here because their previous owners have been evicted, passed away or didn't want them any more. Some were found as strays but clearly had been pets at some point.
These cats are full of character and their unique personalities are well established so no surprises there!
They are keen to find a home before kitten season is upon us!
