    I've been visiting The Heatons for the last seven weeks as I had reserved a young Mum while her kittens were being weaned, so I have got to know all the staff very well. Apart from being very knowledgable and caring towards the cats, they are all lovely people, so the accusation made in the previous review sounds utterly implausible to me. They are rightly careful about where their cats are rehomed and to whom, as all good rescue centres should be. The cats at Heatons are very well cared for, and I liked the fact that, compared to my experiences with the national cat charities, the staff were careful not to be 'pushy' in persuading you to take on a certain cat. On the contrary, they encourage you to take your time and be absolutely sure. Mum and kitten have been with me for seven hours now, and they are an absolute delight, so I think I made the right choice - thank you, Heatons!

    I would like to reply to Farah Khan's post to set the record straight. My daughter works at the Heaton's Animal Sanctuary and her own nephew is of mixed Asian and white heritage so I take issue with the comment that the staff discriminated against Farah because of her ethnic origin. That definitely was not the case. The reason the staff were reluctant to let Farah take a kitten that day was that they were confused about where the kitten would be living. This is important because Farah, at one point said that the kitten was for her sister who has been into the sanctuary. At that time she lived between two major roads and the sanctuary has a policy of not homing kittens near major roads for obvious reasons. Her ID wasn't acceptable because it had her own address on it which may not have been the address that the kitten would be living at. The ID has to relate to the address where the kitten will be living to be acceptable. The discussions that Farah mentions were based around the confusion over where the kitten would be going to and whether it would be suitable, they had nothing to do with Farah's ethnic origin. The website states that the staff have the right to refuse a homing and this is at their discretion. The kittens who have been hand reared need a home where someone will be at home 24 hours per day because that's what they are used to. For this reason they were not available for general rehoming. I think in this case Farah jumped to conclusions and the wrong ones at that. The staff at the sanctuary are absolutely dedicated to finding good homes for the cats in their care and their decisions are based on numerous factors, ethnicity is not one of them.

    I recently re homed a cat from the Heatons and cannot speak highly enough of them. They were really informative about how to care for the cat and left me in no doubt that if I had any queries or problems to let them know and they would do everything to help. The sanctuary was clean and the cats were obviously well looked after by real cat lovers. Thanks so much :)
