Support cat rescue with purrfectly purrfect Pussies Galore
Around twelve years ago I adopted two beautiful cats from Pussies Galore shop and cat rescue in Paddington. More correctly these beautiful cats adopted me and they have lived happily with my family ever since. Today I was pleased to see that Pussies Galore Cat Rescue is still operating now out of a charity shop in Red Hill (and a new one at Stones Corner) and in association with Animal Rescue Network.

The shop sells a range of good quality second hand clothes, books and toys as well as cat related goods. Just like the original Pussies Galore store there is a small section with crazy cat earrings, cat figurines, cat photo frames, cat stickers, cat gift bags, stuffed toy cats and more. It's a delightfully crazy shop that wears it's commitment to rehousing cats on its sleeve. Run by coordinator and official crazy cat lady, Katina Balsen, this is a great shop to snaffle a bargain, get your cat related merchandise and know that all the money is going to a really worthwhile cause.

In addition to raising money for animal rescue the shop plays a role in rescuing and placing cats for adoption. The group has cats and kittens available for adoption and is careful to match people to felines as some of the rescued cats have particular medical issues or can be anxious or shy possibly related to their past experiences. But it is a great feeling to know that you have given a home to animals that need one. I have been rewarded many times over for bringing my two rescued cats home.

While Pussies Galore takes the issue of rescuing cats seriously it also has a sense of humour as is clear when you realise that its logo is the back view of a cat complete with butt hole. You can buy bags with this image as well as stickers that say Pussy Power.

The shop is keen for good quality donated goods, foster carers and volunteers. So if you have any spare time during the week and want to help you can contact the Red Hill shop on 0412443265 or the newly opened Stones Corner shop on 0419866989. I'm told that occasionally volunteers in the Red Hill store are required to cuddle cats or kittens. That's a pretty good incentive to help out.
