In January 2017 Open Paw for Cats launched at NAWT in our Watford Centre. The programme has already been a roaring success and meeting the feline residents at NAWT is becoming a very exciting experience.

Visitors are encouraged to feed the cats and, as a result, many of our residents are becoming more confident and welcoming to people entering the cattery. Two of our five centres have successfully introduced Open Paw for Cats, with our other centres to follow soon. Here are a couple of success stories from our pilot centre.

Royal photographs normally fall under significant scrutiny, and the adorable pictures of three year-old Prince George are no exception. 

Warnings have been rightly issued on the dangers of the potential toxicity of ice creams to dogs, but the photo of the young prince offering his dog, Lupo, a lick of his ice cream also gives us a valuable lesson in the training of a family dog.
