Cat lover June has always had moggies of her own, and when she retired, she filled her time by volunteering for local cat charities.

“Friends kept saying I should start my own rescue but I couldn’t afford to pay for the food and vet bills and a cattery,” she said.

But generous friends sorted that problem.

They set up a JustGiving account and swiftly raised £3,000 to get her on her way – and Travis Cat Rescue was born, providing care and shelter for cats and kittens in need.

“People have been absolutely fantastic,” June says, “I’ve always loved cats. I like their independence.

“I like the calmness of some and the feistiness of others. Every cat deserves the chance of a happy, stress-free life. There’s nothing more rewarding when a terrified or aggressive cat suddenly decides to trust you.

“It’s a fantastic feeling.”
