Puss in Chutes Charity Skydive, we did it!

On Sunday 6th October our Charity Skydive took place at Dunkerswell Airfield (Honiton). Our girls have spent months raising sponsorship and organising fund raising events such as our Puss in Chutes coffee morning and car boot sales. 

We were very lucky with the weather, all that week it had rained, but Sunday was a lovely warm sunny day for our skydivers. Myself and my managers Phil and Sandra had the privilege to watch our skydivers in action and of course we had our cameras to take lot photos of the day. Some of our CCAs and a few brave volunteers all skydived from 15,000 feet, most of them enjoying the experience! After the jump everyone celebrated together with a well-deserved Champagne picnic.

From this event we managed to raise almost £4,000 for the Centre! On behalf of the staff and cats at Exeter Axhayes thank-you; and a very well done to all the jumpers and thanks to those who came on the day to support them.

Feral Garden update!

We do apologise for lack of blogs, we’ve had a busy couple of months with a full centre of cats, a wedding and summer holidays away from Axhayes. We are back blogging once again. 

Our Feral garden/enclosure officially opened last month on the 23rd September. There was a small gathering of some of the Friends of Exeter Axhayes Group and a few members of staff to celebrate the feral gardens completion. This feral garden wouldn’t have been possible with the generosity from our supporters over the years. We would say another HUGE thank you to everyone who made this possible.   

Our first three cats to stay in our feral enclosure were Minnow, Hello Kitty and Polly, they moved in during the summer. They have been enjoying the tranquil open space with lots of scrubs, long grass, cat mint, tree stumps to sit on and tunnels to hide in. In the evenings a newly built warm cosy house with comfy beds and meals delivered by our cat carers. 


We are pleased to tell you that these lovely ladies soon found an outdoor home together two weeks ago; we are so pleased for them. Now our feral garden is looking for new residents to move in. We are always looking for outdoor homes for our feral cats. If you interested in recruiting some out of work mousers, please get in contact us our centre via our website or facebook page.
