We can't stress enough how important it is to microchip your pets.

"Sadie" was straying in Caerau, and had been for some time when she was brought to us, here at Tŷ-Nant. We scanned her and discovered that she was registered to Hungary. Our volunteers didn't stop there, and managed to track down an email address for the vet she was registered to. After getting Sadie's owners email address, we were able to contact her owners. It turned out Sadie had moved to Wales with her family, and had been missing for months. Her real name is Dumdums, and her owners were in tears when they came to pick her up.

Sadie, aka Dumdums, may never have been reunited with her owners and family if she hadn't been chipped.

It also shows the importance of keeping chip contact details up to date if you move home or change phone number.

FIV - Feline Immunodeficiency Disease

Our FIV Ambassador, Big Joe, has found himself a forever home. We are all very happy for him, and will miss him.

We still have our lovely FIV Boys, so have a look at our Facebook page

Watch this space for news about our cats, and their stories, and other useful information.


Most people don't realise that most cats with FIV have a strong immune system.

Most FIV cats are perfectly healthy for most of their lives. Even for those who start to show effects, most infections can be handled by appropriate medications.

FIV positive cats can have, and deserve to have, a long and healthy life. Like all cats, they need careful attention to their general health and diet, but this is no more than any cat should receive.

A properly cared for FIV cat need not have a shortened life expectancy.


This is the amazing Megan who climbed the Acropolis in Greece Saturday to raise money for our little sanctuary. She really is one extraordinary little lady to think of helping our cats like that. She raised a fantastic £150. Thank you so meowch Megan 😻😻 well done.
Also her dad Rhys who runs a cafe within woodland walk garden centre, raised a further £180 😸 all of this will go to the healthcare of our furry residents.
What a fabulous compassionate family. Thank you. 😻
Thank you to everyone who sponsored Megan and donated at her dads cafe too.

This is Rupert (a friend of Big Joe). Rupert has FIV.

A lot of people think that cats with FIV can't go outside, full stop. However, that's a myth. If the weather is fine and your cat is in good health, they are allowed to be outside in a controlled environment. They can't wander alone or be free to escape, as they can potentially spread the virus, or become unwell.

Rupert and William (both FIV cats) have been adopted by Hayley. Thank you Hayley!
