Changes to Taylor's Opening Times
Sometimes we have to unavoidably alter our
regular opening hours
Our resident small hamsters and gerbils love to
play in boxes! Thank you to the staff at Weymouth Land Registry for
making sure they never run out of them!
Unfortunately, on the 27th September, we had to put our beloved
Sharpie to sleep.
was old boy who had had a great life as our head receptionist for 4
Sharpie came to us on the 9th March 2014 with severe cat flu and he
became our receptionist and called Taylors his home for the rest of
Sharpie had become increasingly ill and he no
longer had a good quality of life, so we made the heart breaking
decision to put him to sleep.
As you can imagine this is very hard for all the
staff and all that knew him. Thank you to everyone who met Sharpie and
gave him cuddles and love.

Can you help our cats
& kittens feel snug and safe, whilst they await a new home. We need
knitted or crocheted blankets for the cats to curl up on in their cat
beds. Ideally they should measure 1 metre square (2 1/2 - 3 foot)
so that they cover the whole cat bed or shelf. The blankets can be
any colours and made out of any type of wool. A lot of the blankets
that people make for us are made up of knitted squares and of all
types of odd wool.
We are always in need
of lots of blankets, as they only have a limited shelf life, as
they need to be washed at high temperatures to kill any germs, and can
get quite furry after a while. Out of all the animal bedding we have
here, these are what our cats prefer!!!!!
If you can't knit,
and would like to donate any wool for others to make us blankets, then
please contact the Centre on 01305 259672 or call into our shops in
Dorchester, Bridport and Sherborne.
