From there, our feline family continued to grow: Barney, the railway kitten; Millie, the discarded lab-cat; Charles, the toddler’s torture victim; Simba, the car-accident survivor. Before we knew it, our home was filled with furry faces… and we loved it!
Flash forward to May 2020, two months after the pandemic turned the world upside down, and we received word of a litter of kittens struggling to survive in a hole in the ground at a nearby farm. So, without a second thought, we got to work converting a brand new summer house into a fully-insulated luxury cat refuge and Filey Cat Rescue was born.
In the last 18 months, we’ve rescued nearly 60 stray and feral cats and kittens from abuse, neglect, abandonment and danger, providing them with first-class accommodation and nourishment, financing their life-saving veterinary care, and enabling them to experience love and kindness, often for the first time.
Now, in 2022, our newly-expanded team of feline-fanatics are thrilled to announce that Filey Cat Rescue is fully registered with the Charity Commission and ready to make a real difference to the lives of cats and kittens across North and East Yorkshire.
