St Francis Persian Rescue is a small independent cat rescue based in the Bedale area of North Yorkshire in the UK.

NEW! Take your cat on holiday with you! See our Cat Friendly Holidays pages!

Our new cattery is now open and taking in rescue cats. As always seems to be the case with we charities, we are appealing to all you kind visitors to this website to see if you can afford to send a little towards the money we have paid out for this.
Another area where money seems always to be spent is on the cats we end-up not being able to re-home. These are the older cats. Once they get to double figures in the age department would-be new homes tend to go out the window! Though I have to say, some of our most

Gentle eyes
that see so much,
paws that have
the quiet touch.

Purrs to signal
"all is well"
and show more love
than words can tell.

Graceful movements
touched with pride,
a calming presence
by our side.

A friendship
that will last and grow -
small wonder
why we love them so.

What Is A Cat?

Also towards helping re-furbish the old cattery, which is not above redemption if we can throw a little (more!) cash around. We realize people have been generous with us so far and don't like to keep asking but it is for the cats, and, sadly, the numbers coming in never seem to diminish.

characterful cats tend to be the old fogies! It's as though they get a new lease of life, they lull us into thinking they're on their last legs, find a comfy settee to kip on and that's it. . . revitalized cat! But, whether they slip into "kitten" mindset or not, you do tend to have one or two more problems with  older cats, kidney wear and tear being the most frequent. Fortekor is now available for cats with iffy kidneys (not PKD) but this needs a vet to prescribe it and, uh, oh! a bit more goes on the bill. We try not to look at bills these days, but they seem to go up far easier than they come down, but we cannot complain about the brilliance of our vets . . . you know who you are!!
