13 rescue cats to be transferred to the island of Jersey from England

NEWS AND COMMENT: This is the first time that I've heard of rescue cats being flown from mainland UK i.e. England, to Jersey which is a self-governing Crown Dependency of the United Kingdom. It is near France. 

It seems that most of the business on the island is to do with financial investment and financial services. The island has a reputation for residents who are very wealthy. Apparently, the wealth gap between the richest and poorest is increasing on the island.

But with respect to the story regarding the rescue cats, it is interesting that they are being flown from Leeds where they were surrendered from, as I understand it, a single home, and where the rescue centre's administrative staff believe they would be unable to rehome them satisfactorily.

The point I'm making is that there are people on the island of Jersey who want to adopt cats whereas in Leeds there are less people of that kind. And it is said that the rescue centre on Jersey, the island branch of Cat Action Trust 1977, has had lots of enquiries about the cats. Jean Falk, from the local branch said that the islanders are very interested in adopting the cats.

She said that because they have come from a multi-cat household i.e. a single home, they are going to go either in pairs to new homes or they will be placed with an existing, resident cat. That's the plan.

She said: 

"I've got so many people interested; I don't expect them to be around too long."

She mentioned that on the mainland there appears to be lots of shelters who can no longer take cats because of a flood of surrenders after the end of Covid and people returning to work. The same has occurred with dogs.
