As soon as a cat is taken into the care of Chats du Quercy Cat Rescue and Rehoming Centre, there are associated costs, including: food, medicine and veterinary fees.
On average, each cat in our care costs 350€.
Running Chats du Quercy costs 9500€ per month.
There are many people who work very hard to ensure our doors stay open. It is a full-time job to do fund-raising alone, not counting the hours put into the actual animal care. Understandably, people want to be certain their money is put to good use.
Whatever donation you are able to make, you can be sure they you are helping an established, reputable charity that has built an excellent reputation and has shown it is serious, knowledgeable, successful and dedicated to cat welfare.
Chats du Quercy unveils our brand new fantastic range of gift ideas. We are delighted to showcase some brand new items that will make unique special presents. Find out more below and take a look on our Facebook boutique page!

A Message from David
So often, people have asked me why I paint cats. I think Leonardo Da Vinci got it spot on when he said, “The smallest feline is a masterpiece”.
Admittedly, I have painted other subjects as well, although that was very early on in my painting career and probably because I started off working in watercolours.
As soon as I started painting cat portraits, I realized that watercolours wouldn’t work for me because of my style; I try to paint as realistically as possible, and that’s when I changed to oil paints.
We moved to France from South Africa in 2008 and for the first few years there was unfortunately little time for painting as we had a house to renovate. As you probably know, renovations can be never ending but at least I now have a few hours left over in the day to pursue my passion.
I deeply admire the work that Lynn and her team do for our feline friends at Chats du Quercy and would really like to help her cause.
Allow me to paint portraits of your cat at a greatly reduced rate, or course, and the proceeds will go to Chats du Quercy. I offer 100% satisfaction, which means if you are not happy with the painting you don’t have to accept it.
Even if your dear cat is not with us any more, honour its memory with a portrait painting. All you have to do is supply me with photographs.
To view more of my work, you can go to the following website, www.southafricanartists.com and type my name, David Kennedy, into the search box.
By kind permission of the artist, Chats du Quercy have been given kind permission to reproduce 100 cards of this gorgeous image plus one other image.
As a limited print, we are asking 15€ for 5 large cards plus 3€ postage
