Meet the Residents!

Woodside will always try its best to ensure that all pets find appropriate, loving homes.  However, due to age or illness, some will never be selected and remain as much loved residents. We are now one of the few charities in the area that does so.

April

April

April is one of our youngest residents.  She originally arrived with us with a litter of kittens but she was unable to rehoused due to toileting issues.  She now lives happily at the sanctuary and has formed a strong bond with 'Big Socks'.  They are able to roam freely around the sanctuary during the day and get shut away at nightime.

Big Socks has been at the sanctury for many years.  He is unable to be rehosued to his tendancy to 'spray' on everything.

Flossy

Flossy

Flossy came into Woodside aged 15 years in April 2016.


She has a severe liver condition, resulting in the onset of liver failure. Although we didn't expect to have Flossy for long she is still coping well with the condition.


A sweet natured girl, who loves to spend her time snuggled up on the sofa in Cosy Cats.

Fred

Fred

Fred came in to Woodside in 2009 aged 12 years old. A sweet boy who has made his home here.


As he sprays we have been unable to place him into a new home. Over the years he has lived in many of the resident rooms but now chooses to live in one of the cattery kitchens. But then who can blame him.


Spoilt rotten by staff, we truly are his servants and do our best to meet his every need.

Missy

Missy

Missy came into us in September 2016, aged 8 years.


Originally from us Missy has a quirky personality. Generally quite nervous, she is also quite stubborn.


Since moving into the Snug, she has settled and seems to be learning some good manners from the others.

Sid

Sid

Sid has been at the sanctuary since 2015. She was quite a fiesty character, who we tried to place in a new home but without success.


While with us she struck up a bond with neighbours April and Big Socks also residents. With time she has been introduced to them and they now live together, with Tinkerbell too, in the Mews.


Her attitude has improved greatly and she now enjoys attention from staff - well most of the time.
