Cat Sanctuary


Winston is one of the more recent arrivals. He’s in a nice big cage while he acclimates and the sign on the door tells us he’s a “nice boy.”

The cages located in different buildings around the property all have paper signs on them showing the name of the cat and, particularly if they’re new, a little bit about their temperament or where they came from. Some new cats are too frightened and unsure of their surroundings to accept visitors, while others, like Winston, are quite glad of the company.


Winston was friendly enough when I first met him last week, but now he’s even friendlier, very chatty, and starting to think he’s about ready to explore what’s going on outside his cage. His chatter is endearingly cheerful, with an expressive range of trills and chirps punctuating at regular intervals a loud, steady purr.
