March has been a great month with 480€ raised to help more of our stray cats and dogs. This all started on March 6th with a good book-sale and then our first poker run in the evening, which Jan and Ingegerd Ljung (pictured with me) won by pulling out a total of 3 aces!

Great news! Tommy now has a foster home with Nicola and Erika and is out of his cage and enjoying a nice meaty meal. Now I just hope he settles into apartment life as he has been a street cat for several years. Being FIV positive, the outdoor life is not longer an option for him. If things are looking good he will …
GREAT news! Having counted all the small change, I can now confirm that Pam’s Almerimar Strays (mainly) book sale raise 235€ on Saturday, which is fantastic, particularly as we have effectively already spent the money helping Korky and Phoebe. SO thank you to everyone who supported it, and i hope you will all come to the next one if you can, at the end of …
I, like India Knight, the Sunday Times columnist, am now a convert to Twitter! For those who ‘know nothing’ about it, Twitter is an online networking website that allows you to send basically one-line snippets out into the ether about what you are up to, or thinking, at any particular moment.
