castle katz

Die Burg Katz in St. Goarshausen, Rheinland-Pfalz, Southwestern Germany. St. Goarshausen is located in the Rhein-Lahn-Kreis on the eastern shore of the Rhein within the Nassau Nature Park and the Rhine Gorge UNESCO world heritage site. It was historically part of the Duchy of Nassau. It’s ~30 km south of Koblenz, above all, famous for the Lorelei rock. The local economy is based on wine making and tourism; the railway station connects it with Wiesbaden, Frankfurt/Main, and Koblenz. There are 2 castles, Burg Katz (Castle Cat) and Burg Maus (Castle Mouse). :) Burg Katz is not open for visitors, but there’s a good view over the town from Burg Maus, also visible are the ruins of Burg Rheinfels on the other side of the Rhein. On the 3rd weekend in September, there’s the Rhein in Flammen event, spectacular large firework displays from Burg Katz, Burg Rheinfels, and from the middle of the Rhein.

Are you looking to knit or Crochet blankets for Christmas boxes? Are you in need of a centre to donate them too?

Cats Protection Derby Adoption centre are in need of knitted or crochet Blankets

Blankets are important to a lot of centres as they will send them with the cats once they find their forever homes as alot of cats will find comfort in the blanket they have been using whilst at the centre.

Blankets also provide warmth and security to cats after vet visits and operations.

Die Burg Katz is a castle above the Mittelrhein town of St. Goarshausen in Rheinland-Pfalz, Southwestern Germany. The castle stands on a ledge looking downstream from the riverside at St. Goar. It was first built around 1371 by Count William II of Katzenelnbogen. It was bombarded in 1806 by Napoleon and rebuilt in 1896-98. It’s now privately owned and not open for visitors. Though commonly known as Katz, this is actually a contraction after the original castle of Katzenelnbogen, which roughly translates to “Cat’s Elbow”, and so is popularly linked with that of the nearby Maus (mouse) Castle. :)

Can you spare £1 to help give animals like this a treat this Christmas?

Macca and Jake through no fault of their own have been waiting for a fur-ever home for too long!

Every year the RSPCA estimate thousands upon thousands are animals are abandoned every year.

In a Five year time frame people reported 210,952 abandoned animals to them. That is just the RSPCA alone so that figure will be so much higher

Here at Christmas 4 Rescue animals we would like to make as many animals over this Christmas period have warmth and some treats and toys to make life in a rescue centre a little easier for them. 

If you think you could spare £1 please consider donating an amazon e-mail gift certificate to us, so that we are able to purchase items to help achieve this!
