Project One by One – Adopt a Cat

Once upon a time, there was a cattery on a farm called Uitsig Animal Rescue, filled with beautiful cats of all colours and sizes. All were gorgeous and loving and unique. One day, a lovely person came and adopted one of these fabulous felines. Then another person came and took two. Every day people came to the cattery and found a purrfect companion or two – or more, until eventually the cattery stood empty – all the cats had found homes. And they all lived happily ever after…

YOU can help end this story as a happily ever after. That’s what Project One By One is all about: a collaboration between FAW and our very good friends at Uitsig Animal Rescue to home ALL the adult cats (who are usually overlooked in favour of kittens)  – until all have homes and the cattery is empty. Each one is special, each one a wonderful companion.

Adult cats have purr-sonality and cat-titude! They’re surprisingly easy to integrate, and are fabulous furry friends (no housetraining required!).

Our project started after the testing of all the cats at the Uitsig cattery for FIV/leukaemia. It had been noted that by this time there had not been a single home found for these deserving and beautiful felines

So……a plan of action needed to be undertaken.

We know it’s hard to visit the cattery for many people because there are so many cats waiting for homes. That’s why we’ve set up an ‘online cattery’ where you can browse through pictures and stories of the cats until you spot one you’d like to meet. We’ve even cat-egorised them by colour (hover your cursor over Project One by One and use the drop-down menu to search). It’s PURR-FECT!

The main aspect of the project is our online cattery. With the help of some dedicated volunteers and the generosity of a local photographer, we have created a catalogue/register of all the adult cats at the Uitsig cattery and we will put them online at Facebook as and when they have undergone their second test: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Project-One-by-One/100306616822589?ref=hl

For those people that don’t use facebook, the register can also be found on the FAW website:

The online cattery is a way of potential new owners browsing our needy cats and making an enquiry without the need to visit the cattery. We are dedicated to complete a home check within 48 hours and within no time you will have a new member of the family J

We have a special aspect to our project, in that each adoption will see a township cat benefitting; whether that is with a bag of food, a new bed, a litter tray or litter, we will make a change for the better on your behalf.

Every cat we home has been sterilised, vaccinated and has tested negative for FIV/leukemia.

Keep an eye on the Project because there are big things to come and your support matters……ALOT.

You can help us with fund-raising; we need funds to test all the cats and we need people to share and spread the word about our Project. Please also contact us with any questions/info you need on our beloved felines, we have a number of cat owners on hand with heaps of advice to help.

We need you to make this happen for the cats:     Be the CAT-alyst for change!
