I first became aware of the Moreton Rd cats about 18 month ago when I started seeing black and white cats in the back garden – first one and then several. I started leaving out cabin window open and putting some biscuits out in cold weather. The cats were very shy, but the biscuits were always gone in the morning..
Last month, Cats Protection League put a note through the door asking for help with a colony of stray cats about to be displaced by building works (knocking down an old industrial estate and woods at the end of the road to build houses). I hadn’t realised that they were all feral.
So now I’m feeding 7 cats and any donations would be gratefully recieved so I can buy them an insulated shed to live in and some decent quality food. If we get more money than we need, I’ll donate the extra to Cat’s Protection League.
If I win the lottery, I’m going to buy that industrial estate and turn it into a cat sanctuary 😀
Here are some of the visitors I was able to photograph..
I’ll draw cartoon updates for those who donate, to let you know how things are going for Lightning and the rest of the Moreton Road cats.
Please send any donations to FelineUtopia@gmail.com by PayPal.
Hello if you’ve just come to this page after meeting me at Luton Alternative Market and taking a business card.
I’ll be trying to keep this blog more up to date now.
You can find my stall at the next Luton Alternative Market on 25th Feb at the George II Bute St, Luton.
Darrel Inns and I are putting together a colouring book by Luton artists over the summer – if you’d like to contribute, get in touch – firstname.lastname@example.org. Here are some of the pictures I’m contributing.
Last night we were watching “Nuts” the documentary and Game of Thrones and I had all the inks out and later the alcohol pens (less dangerous after a couple of glasses of mulled wine) and I drew these. I am now slightly worried about my sanity but quite pleased by how they turned out.
( windsor&newton indian ink, and quink inks on watercolour paper – or alcohol markers on canvass board)
On the August bank holiday I had a little art stall at Sunshine Riding School and sold some of my pictures .. Enthused by this I got my inks out, which had been in the loft. And painted, and painted, and painted.
Not sure what to do with all these, now! Stall at Hitchin market? Etsy shop? hm.
