CAT OF THE MONTH

 

 

 

Connor

HOUSE CAT ONLY

Location: cattery

Connor is a big hunk of an older gentleman looking for a quiet home to relax and enjoy life. Connor is FIV+ so we are seeking a good sized home as he needs to be an indoor only cat to avoid the chance of him passing on the virus to other cats.


Connor is approximately 8 years old and has had, we imagine, a long, hard life as a stray. He came in to RSPCA care with fight wounds and conjunctivitis but these have now been successfully treated. He has also been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. Apart from being FIV+ he is in good health. 

Connor was initially very shy but despite his ordeal Connor has shown himself to be a big, shy softie who loves nothing better than to have his ears, chin and belly rubbed. 

He is currently in our cattery where our patient volunteers have waited a few weeks to see the rewards of their efforts - Connor recently emerged from his bed box and is delighting in snuggling up on a lap or two for pampering. 

Any prospective owner needs to be comfortable with allowing Connor to settle in at his own pace. We are certain that given a few weeks Connor will be rewarding his adopter too by rolling on his back for his belly to be rubbed and purring loudly. You must be committed to keeping Connor as an indoor cat and providing him with enough space, play and enrichment so he doesn't become bored. Although he will hiss when scared, Connor has not even shown us a claw since being in RSPCA care! So, we think he would be fine to live in a family where any children are 8 or above and there is space for him to have his 'alone time'.

Dolly

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Pets at Home, Stockport

Well hello Dolly! This wonderful bundle of love is 4 years old and looking for a new home following her owner's move into sheltered accommodation where pets were not allowed. Dolly has clearly been doted on as she is a sweet natured and affectionate girl who has a gorgeous smooth and glossy tabby coat.


Perhaps Dolly has been a little bit too spoilt in the past as she is slightly overweight. We've put her on a little diet and our cat cuddlers have been making sure that she has plenty of active play time. Her daily exercise regime includes rolling around on the floor, chasing a mouse on a string and stretching up for head rubs.


Dolly is used to living in a quiet home with one adult, so a similarly relaxed environment is one we think she'd settle into best in the future. She would prefer to be the only cat in the home.

If you would like to adopt Dolly contact us today!

Candy

Location: foster home

Candy has found her way into our care when her owner sadly moved into a homeless shelter. She is a dainty little lady who is 7 years old. She already had a lot of teeth missing and has required further extractions and now just has 4 teeth remaining! Hopefully that will be the end to her dental needs for the foreseeable future, otherwise she is good health and has been signed off by the vet for rehoming. This is what her foster mum has to say to her:


"Candy is a lovely, friendly cat who loves cuddles, especially in the evening in front of the TV. She has no problem eating even with her lack of  teeth, but we do chop up some of the big pieces for her. She doesn’t really play with toys, instead she likes to settle on your lap and fall asleep. She is super friendly and would suit most homes as long as there is a window sill she can sunbathe on!"


We are keen to see this little lady find a forever so she can settle into her new life asap. We would ideally like her to have access to outdoors so she can stretch her legs and enjoy some fresh air. Candy enjoys a quiet life in a foster home with two adults, but we think she would be ok to live in a quiet home with secondary school aged children too and would be best being the only cat in the home.

If you would like to adopt Candy contact us today!

Billy

Location: foster home

Billy is a big old handsome beast of a cat whose rugged good looks and character are typical of a cat of his background. Billy came into RSPCA as a stray who had reached the age of five without being neutered (let's not think about how many kittens he could have fathered in that time!) He's a big lad who looks like a proper tom cat who knows his own mind.

Billy is now around 6 years old and has been neutered for some time now. He has been transferred to us from another branch of the RSPCA as he was having no luck finding a home in the quiet seaside town he's come from but we think he'll fit well into a Mancunian way of life, with his self-confident swagger and roguish charm. He's quite a sporty, playful fella although we don't know if he's a United or City supporter (actually we reckon Billy would be more into Brazilian football.)  He is an independent chap who knows his own mind and will be right at home playing cock of the North!

Billy would love an adult only home where he'll be allowed to get on to do his own thing. He enjoys playing with you and a fuss on his own terms (he's just so cool!). He does appreciate human company and regular meals, and would like a decent outdoor space to roam around. We expect he'll be a keen ornithologist and be happier being the only cat in the home.
