After the move to our new location there’s of course lots of things still to do; to organise, get things together and to improve. Most important to make a plan for the future: how to move forward from now.
We are happy to tell you all cats are happy and healthy after the big move, which was very
exciting for them and just as much for their carers. It was a huge responsibility to keep all cats and other animals, as well as the humans, happy and healthy. Such a long-distance relocation can be very stressful. Some cats of course adapted quicker than others, but it is clear to see that it was a wonderful investment in WCW’s future for all.
We now have a true sanctuary, and without any disturbance to the animals from tourists on tours just to create income. As before we don’t offer any interaction with our animals either. We still have a volunteering program (like always, not more than 2 or max 3 volunteers at the same time). Also we very occasionally receive guests who are truly passionate about the sanctuary, our work and the animals.
We are now excited about a new agreement concerning cheetahs which will be moved to our sanctuary sometime in future. That will ensure them the stability and proper care they deserve, with no interference, interaction, or trade and breeding. They will have a permanent home in the most natural conditions. In (near) future we’ll be able to provide more info about this.
So the one thing that hasn’t changed is that we, Wild Cats World, keep doing all that’s in our power to give the best to captive born (wild) cats or rescues from the wild. To provide the best forever home for these cats in need, whether small or big.
The first Sacred Cat of Birman in our Cattery turned 19 today (27th of June). Happy Birthday to her!
As it is a special Day for a very special cat we just have to share this with all our followers. Queeny survived a severe pancreas infection and 5 days as ” lost feral cat” a few years ago and is still going strong. So proud of our Grand Lady.
Up to the 20.
The pretty girl you see on the photos, is Phoebe. A few weeks ago she was brought in at our sanctuary.
They found her all alone in the bush, near a lodge. There’s not many cats around this place in the bush, apart from a few African wildcats that have been sighted. As for her looks she is expected to be their offspring.
When she was brought to us she suffered from a serious blockage. We brought her to the vet who treated her twice. After that, and with the help of a special diet to prevent more future problems, she recovered completely.
Phoebe turned out to be a very pretty and feisty girl.

Wild Cats World and founder/owner Babette de Jonge has been moving heaven and earth for 11 years, to do what’s best in her power for CATS. Wild Cats, big and small, but also feral cats and domestic cats who need help.
The group of feral Cats on this picture , and many other homeless cats, benefit from her and WIld Cats World: daily care, love, food and water. Some we had sterillised, castrated and vaccinated as well. Showing the ultimate love and dedication to these animals and new ones who need to be rescued, a property was bought and a new sanctuary is started. African wildcats, black-footed cats, caracals, cheetahs, leopards, servals, domestic cats, feral cats, but also an Anatolian Shepherd dog in need of a new owner and lots of rabbits, chickens, quails have a forever safe home at the new WIld Cats World Sanctuary.
Leaving the current place, we still want to take full responsibility as for all feral cats that need our help so badly. We cannot leave them behind to die. With us They would continue to have the daily care and love, but a huge camp needs to be constructed for them. Our funds are zero now due to Covid-19 and all done so far to provide the wild Cats, big and small, with a perfect forever home and continuous care. Don’t be mistaken millions of Rands go into this “charity project”.
So, that’s why we just want to appeal to the generosity of the cat Friends…
Funds needed is 6000 euro to home approx. 20 cats
