The day starts with staff arriving and checking the daily diary for what to expect
today. The cats and kittens are then fed and any medications given, either by mouth
or on food depending on the condition being treated. After a little time to allow
them to eat the cleaning starts ! All pens and indoor facilities are cleaned, disinfected
and dirty bedding replaced and washed. Water bowls are replenished and the empty
food bowls removed and washed. Litter trays are removed, washed and sterilised and

new homes that day. Medical records are kept up to date and vaccination and microchip
certificates etc are processed. At lunchtimes kittens are given a meal. We liaise
with the vets about any concerns we may have and arrange for treatments where necessary.
Paperwork is made out and cats needing neutering are taken to our vets. At teatime

Just a quick look at a typical day at Evesham Cats Protection
Much of our time is spent caring for the welfare of the cats in our care. All cats
and kittens are microchipped before they are rehomed.
Routine health inspections are carried out to worm and treat cats for fleas. Ears
are checked for signs of ear mites and treated if necessary. Teeth are checked for
signs of gum disease or damaged teeth. The cats coat is groomed and dematted if
needed. Any major problems found are referred to our vet for further investigation.
