I volunteer once a week at the centre as a 'cat cuddler'.  The kittens love getting cuddles and I like getting them back! Some of the cats though don't like to cuddle and its these ones that I choose to sit with more.  These cats often just need someone with patience to sit with them and help them relax. I consider it my mission to help the timid cats become brave, confident and more adoptable.

I adopted a cat from Yorkshire Cat Rescue and just wanted to give something back. 

It is so rewarding to see them open up and gain in confidence.  Sometimes it can be one little thing, like sitting and playing with a feather toy, that makes the difference. To see a cat that has been hiding come out and play is the reason I volunteer.
