A more recent development is the formation of another different, but associated, a volunteer club for those people with a passion for assisting the rescued cats at Uitsig, The Kit Kat Club.
Adult cats in rescue centres have extremely small chances of ever being adopted, as most people are only interested in adopting kittens. A monthly schedule of interested volunteers has been drawn up so as to ensure that there are people at the cattery on each Saturday providing the cats with human interaction, brushing them and assisting with their socialisation.
This has now been developed further to incorporate The Project One by One, a joint venture with Fisantekraal Animal Welfare to highlight the cats available for adoption
The aim of the Project is also to raise awareness of the adult cat communities within the Western Cape. This ranges from rescue cats to the feral cat colonies to information on caring for your cat and a forum for questions.
This project started after the testing of all the cats at the Uitsig cattery for FIV/leukemia. The main aspect of the project is our online cattery. We have created a catalogue/register of all the adult cats in the Uitsig cattery.
The online cattery is a way of potential new owners browsing our needy cats and making an enquiry without the need to visit the cattery. We are dedicated to complete a home check within 48 hours and within no time you will have a new member of the family.
