Shoppers help cats in Melksham

Abandoned cats in Melksham have been offered a lifeline by generous shoppers.
The Cats Action Trust North and West Wiltshire has received £350 from the Waitrose Community Matters scheme, in which shoppers use tokens to select a local charity to support each month.
Charity chair Emma Lord said: “In July alone, our team of volunteers were caring for 50 cats. Each animal is checked by a veterinary surgeon and given blood tests to reduce the spread of feline diseases.
“Once checked, they are placed at one of our local foster homes where they are given love and attention until a new owner steps forward.
“The Waitrose donation will help to cover the costs of veterinary bills, food, cat litter, heating and other expenses.”
