Major Mazda Update #4

POSTED BY Sandi Wilson ON Oct 06 2014.

For those of you who don't know, it was World Animal Day this weekend (specifically the 4th Oct) and I thought I'd show you a few photos of what me and my fellow Cats In Need Trust cats got up to. 

In other news our little Brook has been adopted with Phantom! I'm super excited for them in their new home! Also I have decided to make Nippy our latest Cat of the Week, a friendly, ginger man who loves to get pats, so keep an eye out for him.

Major Mazda Update #3

POSTED BY Sandi Wilson ON Sep 21 2014.

To be honest I've found this fortnight rather tiring (I'm not exactly a young cat) and there have been moments where I've very much felt like retiring. I admit I have on occasion had to had a wee nap mid-patrol! Hopefully this is just the rainy weather talking and once we start getting some sunny days I will feel less like spending the whole day in bed!

Major Mazda Update #2

POSTED BY Sandi Wilson ON Sep 15 2014.

Hello Everyone, Major Mazda here with my second update from the Cats In Need Trust. We have some good news to report, three of my fellow cats have recently found forever homes - Endora, Triad and Mona. I'm very happy for them and it's good to have them out from under my paws, giving me more time to patrol without constant interruptions.

Volunteers Needed

POSTED BY Juita Tambunan ON Sep 15 2014.

Hi guys, it's definitely getting warmer, which is fantastic as all the cats just love to go out and snooze on the warm concrete. However, even in the nicer seasons of the year we stil have lots and lots of work to do to keep the cattery all nice and clean for the cats.

We are looking for volunteers and we would appreciate any time that you can offer, even if it is just for a few hours once a month! It's a lot of work for us but the cats appreciate it (even if they don't always show it!). Give us a call to register your interest in volunteering on either +64-(09)-276-9960 or 027-426-4374 or email us

Major Mazda Update #1

POSTED BY Sandi Wilson ON Aug 25 2014.


Hello everyone, I'm Major Mazda your new Cats In Need Trust spokes cat. Some might consider me old at 13 years - but I think my added years give me extra wisdom and a good dose of common sense - which sure came in handy this last fortnight.

My dear friend Commander Caltex appointed Twinkle and I as his lieutenants....

Does your Cat want to be famous?

POSTED BY Sandi Wilson ON Aug 12 2014.

We are currently working on our 2015 fundraising Cat Calendar and we are always looking to include 'Happy Ending' stories in the calendar and would love to hear from some of you who have adopted one of our perfect kitties in the last year. 

If your cat would like to be a star, please email us at with a paragraph or two about your furry friend and a nice high-resolution photo (or a couple) by the 15th September.

We look forward to hearing some or your stories!

Say Hello to our new website!

POSTED BY Sandi Wilson ON Jun 27 2014.

Well it's been in the pipeline for a while now - and our new site has finally arrived! Our devoted volunteers have been tirelessly working - developing, designing, adding in all the important information and cat profiles and then making hundreds of last minute tweaks to get it ready. And we must say we are absolutely thrilled!

We've streamlined and upgraded the whole site to get it a much cleaner look, with easier navigation. The adoption section has been improved to have cat status' and even a search box to make it easier to find the perfect cat for you! Doesn't it look grand!

We have tried to get the site as ready as possible for the big reveal, however there are some sections which still have more content to come so bare with us as we continue to make these updates. 

Please have a look around and feel free to let us know what you think either by email or on our facebook page. 


Double Dose of Good News for Bluebell!

POSTED BY Sandi Wilson ON Jun 20 2014.

We are delighted to be able to announce that Bluebell (our current Operation Lucky cat) has been adopted and at her latest vet check the vet confirmed that while her leg is misaligned, it has healed and will probably be very functional - which means Bluebell won't need to lose her leg after all! We are very happy for her.

A BIG THANK YOU to all the people who have kindly donated to our Operation Lucky fund over the last year, since Bluebell no longer needs surgery, we are glad to be able to put these fund towards several of the cats in our care who have been needing to have teeth removed - an expensive operation.
