Call for fosterers from restructured Cats Protection branch

Volunteers and funds are still being sought by the Maidenhead, Slough and District branch of Cats Protection after it was restructured last month.

Outgoing co-ordinator Peter Simmonds, who has returned to the charity after a period of ill-health, confirmed the branch will continue running after it was threatened with closure by the National Cat Centre (NCC) when one of its fosterers was found to have more than the set limit of cats in a home.

Karen Lewis has taken over as co-ordinator and the charity will not be taking in any more animals until further notice.

The 24/7 emergency call out service has also stopped, with cases now being handled by the RSPCA.

Many of the branch's cats have been rehomed or relocated to other shelters over the Christmas period.

Peter said: "It's got to stabilise itself.

"It will be a lot smaller and a lot more quiet for the time being but we still desperately need more volunteers and more fostering."
