Katie and kittens
Published on April 27, 2020 by Alex Spurgeon


I'm Katie and these littles ones are called Wilbur, Hope, Lottie, Bessie, and you can’t really see him but their brother Dennis is in that first picture with them too. They are my babies.

I arrived at NAWT in early January, when I was five weeks pregnant, because my previous owner could no longer care for me. I brought Kitty with me to NAWT, my six week old kitten from a previous litter, and I was pleased when she very quickly found a new home.

As the national lockdown continues this week, the teams at your local NAWT are hoping to keep you entertained with the following virtual events:

NAWT Clacton

NAWT Clacton will be reaching out to their young supporters this week as they launch their 'Rescue Me' story and poem competition for 5 to 13 year olds. Inspired by Radio 2's 500 word competition, the centre is asking children to get their imaginations working and to come up with a story or poem about a rescue animal and the importance of giving them a second chance.

Keep in touch

As we enter week three of lockdown at NAWT, the teams in our rehoming centres are hard at work not just keeping things fun and interesting for the animals, but also trying to create exciting and inventive ways to keep in touch with you, our wonderful supporters!

So here’s the 2nd instalment of your weekly roundup, keeping you updated on all the ways you can stay in touch with your local NAWT and join in the virtual fun.

NAWT Cornwall

The team in Hayle are hosting an online fancy dress party!

In line with government guidelines, every NAWT centre has had to cancel all fundraising events until further notice. This means they have lost a vital source of income at a time when they need the funding more than ever. On top of this they are each losing important touchpoints with their local community, with the centres having to close their gates to all visitors, and animal rehoming work being halted.

At difficult times like this, the strength of our community spirit is more important than ever.
