Thames Ditton artist donates to save animal shelter
Generous artists are donating pictures to raise money for an animal shelter.
The RSPCA’s stray cat centre in Southall will be selling feline paintings, prints, drawings and cards at its annual open day on Saturday, September 8.
Beautiful watercolours of cats by professional artist Anna Tikhomirova, who lives in Thames Ditton, and Julia Dennis, from East Sheen, will be among the works on sale.
Other donations include signed copies of an illustrated children’s book by Hampton-based artist Janet Weight Reed, called Christeve the Cat Finds Her Home, which is based on a real story.
There will also be stalls selling bric-a-brac, cakes, soft toys and books, as well as activities for children.
In addition visitors will also be able to view the many cats and kittens looking for loving homes.
All money raised will be used to help the many stray and abandoned cats the centre looks after and re-homes.
The open day at the cattery, in Burket Close, Norwood Green, will be held from 11am-3pm. The entry fee is 50p or a tin of cat food.
The centre currently has 108 animals, of which two thirds are kittens.
