Home for Felix

After many weeks of searching you’ll be pleased to know we did find a new home for Felix. He’s now happily settled in with his new owner in the countryside near Stamford. A big ‘thankyou’ to Stamford vets for their circulation that helped Felix find his new mum.

Don’t you just love a happy ending 🙂

Please Can You Help Me?

Hello, my name is Felix, I know it’s a fantastic name for a black and white boy.


I used to come here for my holidays, but I’m actually having to live here at the moment and whilst I do like being here, I really need a new home.

You see my Mummy died and there was no one else to look after me.

It was all very sad and I don’t know what happened but I do so miss being home with her. And that’s why I’m looking for a new home.

I’m 9 years old and very nervous of strange things but once I get used to you I’ll be so loving and be such good company. I guess I really need a home with older people, where there’s not lots of noise with children, dogs or even other cats. I’ve always been on my own you see, just me and Mum. Now there’s just me.

So please have a think and if you or someone you know could do with a new companion I’m happy to give it a try, just ask June or Vicki about me.

Thank you so much for reading this.

Cattery Entrance

Some of you will have noticed a new trellis and archway feature as you approach The Bythams Cattery buildings entrance. Yes, we thought it was time to add a little more to your visit!

It will evolve with scented roses and clematis planned to cover the structure but we hope you enjoy our new entrance area.

Please note that whilst the structure has encroached into the cattery carpark there is additional carparking space available on the righthandside by driving though the gap between the hedge and house.

Bythams Cattery Birthday

St. Patricks day is always a special day for us here at The Bythams Cattery because 7 years ago today we opened for business. Yes, I know, 7 years! Where has that time gone to.

In a conversation this morning we were remembering waiting for that first phone call, our first customer and finally when it came we couldn’t believe the name of our first booked in customer – MOG! You couldn’t have pre-written the script but from that moment onwards the phone calls and now emails have continued to come and with your continued support you have all helped make our family business a success.

We all thank you for your continued support and we will raise a glass this evening to say Happy 7th birthday to The Bythams Cattery.

Norfolk Challenge Total

Hello everyone,

Well, I know it’s been a while but I have finally received all of the donations for my Norfolk Challenge walk in aid of Breakthrough BreastCancer. You may remember we ended up covering nearly 28 miles over the two days and yes I have fully recovered from my little adventure and I still have some wonderful memories of the lovely people that joined me on that walk. Thanks to your fantastic contributions I not only passed my initial £500 target but doubled it and in fact my final total reached £1220.00! How brilliant is that! What wonderful kind hearted people you ALL are in helping me to support BREAKTHROUGH and make a difference to our friends and loved ones that have to endure the heartache of this illness.

Some of you may have read about Michaela Strachan and her devastating news and how she now has become an ambassador for BREAKTHROUGH. You can follow her story on the BREAKTHROUGH site by following this link It is well worth reading and understanding how quickly Michaela had to make decisions.

We have to continue to support the research and help this organisation provides and by doing so we can all make a difference to our and our children’s future. Whilst my JUST GIVING site will close tomorrow you can still donate to BREAKTHROUGH on the official site (use the link above to Michaela’s story).

So finally, again, a BIG BIG thank you to one and all for your donations, and you never know what else I may do in 2015!

Donations Reach £1155.00

Thanks to you kind hearted people donations  have reached £1155.00 , what a magnificent total and I was worried about reaching £250.00 let alone the £500.00 target my husband set me on my Just Giving page!

It is an achievement not only for me to have walked this distance but in what you have given to BREAKTHROUGH. I feel very humbled that you have seen fit to support me during this venture and during the last two miles when I really hit the wall and didn’t want to continue it was your messages that had been relayed through to me from home that helped me to continue and finish. My Just Giving page is still open for those who wish to look at the lovely comments or if you would still like to donate to BREAKTHROUGH Breast Cancer.   just click on this link.

So, a very big ‘Thank You’ to all who have helped me make my Norfolk Coastal Challenge well worthwhile.

Thank you,

June x.

Challenge Completed!

Well my wonderful friends, I’m home. Stiff, achy and a couple of blisters that are my reminders of what I’ve done. It is a big achievement for me, not only in the distance walked, which the app showed was a further 13 miles yesterday, so 27 miles in all, not 24, but for the support you have all given me and the donations, which are still coming in. It would appear between the 45 walkers just over £4000.00 has been raised – of which you good people have so far donated £1035.00 towards BREAKTHROUGH. How brilliant is that! We were very fortunate that the weather held out for us and thank goodness it wasn’t today. With more beautiful scenery around us I did take it a bit slower with a need for foot repair around lunch time. As we neared the end I suddenly hit a wall and my legs just didn’t want to move but some supportive other walkers soon gathered round and helped me get focused again. With their help and the lovely comments from your messages running through my head I managed to get on the move again and cover those last two miles. Sandringham never looked so good – shame Liz and Philip weren’t about but there were many other well wishers to see us over the line. In fact many donations were given by people we passed whilst on the walk. It’s incredible to see just how this touches so many people. In fact, we have received word that a neighbour of my Mum and good friend was diagnosed last week and starts treatment this week. Our thoughts are with you Joan. But without all of you kind hearted, generous people I would never have been able to have put so much into this wonderful charities funding. Thank you all for your support both monetary and in messages. It does give you faith in people around you. And should you still wish to contribute my Just Giving site is still up and running (just click on this link to be taken to the site) with the donations board, together with photo’s still present in the cattery.

Thank you, one very humbled June x
