CAT OF THE MONTH

 

 

 

Dennis

POTENTIAL HOUSE CAT

RESERVED

Location: foster

Dennis is a gorgeous scamp of a cat who has definitely used up at least one of his 9 lives. He was found on his own struggling to walk and in dragging his back leg, after seemingly having been in some kind of accident. X-rays revealed he had a femoral head fracture. He subsequently had surgery but despite best efforts it was unsuccessful and we were left with no option but to amputate his leg. After several weeks of recuperation we are delighted that Dennis is doing so well and is ready to move on to his forever home. This is what his foster mum has to say about:


“Dennis is a lap cat that loves to come and sit on your knee for cuddles. He loves having his cheeks scratched and under his chin. He loves playing, especially with string and dangly sticks. Dennis is still adapting to life with 3 legs, the other day he attempted to jump on the kitchen side but failed! He benefits with stepping stones to window ledges etc. as he does love a good nosey out the window. Rather calamitously he has, on several occasions, whilst snoozing on the couch fallen off it! He really is a lovable rogue with a big heart.”


Dennis is approx. 2 to 3 years old and is looking for a home where any children are 8 or over. If you have a safe, outside space he could play in that would be the icing on the cake, otherwise we will consider him being an indoor cat only if you live in a large property.

Polly

RESERVED

Location: cattery

Polly is a laid back lovely lady around 2 years old. She is looking for a new home after her owner could no longer cope with her and the other cat in the property. They came in as a pair but we quickly saw that Polly was being pushed out of the way by her younger male companion so she is now enjoying some peace in a cattery pen all to herself. She is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped so is ready for her new home.

Polly is a sweet cat who spends her time snoozing until she has company and then its right out for a fuss. She’ll nuzzle your head and rub round your legs and enjoy every second she has with people. She is a confident cat who quickly settled into our cattery, she takes everything in her stride and adores everyone she meets. Polly is looking for a home with children aged 5 and over where she can play outdoors safely once settled in.

She is used to living with another cat but it wasn’t a particularly enjoyable experience for her, we believe she’d get along with another laid back, older cat who’d give her some space.

Mellie

RESERVED

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets at Home

Big meows for Mellie, our 2 year old sleek little lady who was found stray with a litter of 5 kittens. Given her size it’s hard to believe she had so many and that they all did so well, she raised them in our foster home and now is ready to find a home where she can be centre of attention. She’s been neutered vaccinated and microchipped so is all ready to go.

Mellie is a shy lady on first meeting but soon warms to you, she likes to take shelter and observe you from afar and settle in slowly but within a week or so she’ll be on your knee, purring away and gently tapping at you with her paw for more attention. She is a curious cat despite her initial shyness, she likes to explore and have a wander round new places, in her foster home she’d often take herself for a mini adventure around the house, it often ended with a visit to the kitchen to see what human food was on offer! In the home Mellie is affectionate, confident and a delight to have around.

Mellie is looking for a home with an understanding owner who will let her settle in at her own pace, we know it won’t be many days before she’s on the bed and nuzzling up to her new owners. She would be best suited to children of secondary school age and will need safe access to outdoors once settled.

If you would like to adopt Mellie contact us today!

Shane

Location: cattery

Shane is a small and squat 2 year old lad with a white bib and piercing green eyes that look like planets. He is looking for a new home after being found stray with an injured leg. Thankfully his injury was only minor and he is now fighting fit and ready to find a home.

Shane is a little softie who will smother his friends with love and attention but he did find adjusting to the cattery environment very unsettling at first, it took 2 weeks before he showed us what an amazing little character he is. Now though he is rubbing around our legs, purring constantly and balancing on his back legs to reach up and nudge our hands, he’s totally adorable. We can’t believe we’ve been missing out on such top notch cat cuddles whilst he’s being hiding in his bed, he’s certainly making up for it now though!

Shane is looking for a loving home where he may need a few weeks peace to adjust but once he’s sussed out the place he’ll be all over you. He’s neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and would be suitable to live with children of secondary school age and above. Shane would enjoy a home with safe access to outdoors so he can play outside once settled.

If you would like to adopt Shane contact us today!

Scampi

Location: foster

Adorable Scampi is a bit of a medical marvel. He was found having suffered a terrible injury to his back legs leaving him only able to drag those limbs behind him. The tendons attaching his knee caps to the shin bones had been ripped away rendering him completely lame so he underwent surgery to pin them back in place. It makes your eyes water to think about how painful this must have been for poor Scampi, but even in his vet notes it is recorded how friendly he remained throughout.  

Scampi has been recovering in foster care for a couple of months now, patiently enduring weeks on cage rest, then room rest and now he is slowly building up to normal life around the house. His rehabilitation isn't complete just yet. He is no longer on any medication and doesn't require any more trips to the vet, but his adopters will have to keep an eye on him and make sure he doesn't push himself too far too quickly. He is able to get about without any issues, but he can't jump as high as you'd expect and sometimes sits in a slightly peculiar way. He also quite likes to sleep on his back to take the pressure off those knees.  

Scampi is only a young lad - we estimate between 1 and 2 years of age - and is a very happy, confident boy with a lot of kittenish charm and energy. His foster carer describes him as "bright as a button" and "good as gold". Who could ask for more than that? He is very affectionate and proves to be a wonderful companion. His only vice is that he likes to play with your toes under the bed covers whilst you sleep, so may need to be banished from the bedroom!  

Scampi would like to live in a home where he will get plenty of attention and affection. He can live with children of primary school age or over and will need plenty of safe outdoor space to expend some energy in once he's settled in.

If you would like to adopt Scampi contact us today!

Liquorice

Location: foster

Liquorice is a lovely older lady looking for a new home where she will be the only cat  and can rule the roost. Liquorice has a style all of her own, with a slightly spikey black coat, which no matter how often she is groomed and how good her diet is always looks a bit scruffy. She's also a little bit round - we like to think this all adds to her kooky charm!

Liquorice has been in our care for 6 months as she was in quite a neglectful state after being abandoned by her owner. She required multiple extractions and found life changes quite stressful, but once settled in a foster home she began to blossom and has proven to be an absolutely cracking cat, who is great company and very loveable. She has quite simple needs - she likes to eat, to snooze and gives great cuddles. You'll never feel lonely with Liquorice around. We aren't exactly sure how old she is, but we estimate around 10 or 12 years old.

She has had full veterinary health screening whilst in our care and they've shown she is in good condition and doesn't need any ongoing medication, just a weekly clean of her ears as they get a bit waxy. She struggles to jump on to very high surfaces, but can easily pop on a sofa or bed for a snuggle. In lots of ways this is ideal as she can't get on kitchen worktops and make a nuisance of herself! As she's been in foster care with us for some time she's been granted outdoor priviledges in a contained backyard. She is more agile on ground level and proved to be quite a skilled hunter. She also loves a good kick-a-bout with a plastic ball.


Liquorice isn't keen on the company of other cats so is definitely looking to be the only cat in the household. She'd prefer a quieter home with one or more adults where she can relax and hang out with you in the evenings.

If you would like to adopt Liquorice contact us today!

Holly

RESERVED

Location: cattery

Holly is a beautiful tortoiseshell cat with ginger and grey splodges. She is roughly 2 years old and is looking for a new home after being abandoned in a cat carrier at a country park, thankfully it was caught on CCTV so she wasn’t there long. She’s spent the past few weeks in out cattery recovering and getting ready for her new life so now that she is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped she is all good to go!


Holly is a lovely little cat who welcomes fusses from all visitors. She is quiet but friendly and is very gentle. She likes peace and calm but enjoying filling it with purrs and even dribbles after a few strokes. She’s taken to rolling over at fuss time to make sure every inch gets a scratch, she never tires of a stroke.


Holly is looking for a relaxing home where she can lounge around, potter around a garden and get fusses when her people are home. She’s be well suited to a home with older children where she can play outside safely once settled in.

If you would like to adopt Holly contact us today!

Dexter

Location: cattery

Dexter is a majestic cat who deserves our utmost respect for maintaining a chilled out manner despite being passed from pillar to post. His owner had a baby so passed him onto a neighbour who sadly found themselves homeless so he was then passed onto us. He’s about 3 years old and is just an absolute hunk. He’s neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and is waiting patiently in our cattery for someone to offer him a loving and permanent residence.


Dexter is great, he’ll be snoozing away in his hidey bed but will be quick to get up, stretch out and come say hello when visitors arrive. He’s straight up in your face having nuzzles and chin rubs and has time for everyone. He’s an extra-large lad who only uses his size to intimidate other cats rather than people. He doesn’t like to share his home or his homie’s so is looking to be the only feline in the property. He’s laid back, affectionate and ever so handsome so needless to say he is the new staff favourite!


Dexter is looking for a home with children over the age of 5 years old where he can have safe access to outdoors and where he can be lord of the manner in a home with no other cats. He’s an absolute dude who someone will be very lucky to devote themselves too.

If you would like to adopt Dexter contact us today!

Maddie

POTENTIAL HOUSE CAT

Location: cattery

Maddie is the sweetest little lady and is a firm favourite with all of our staff and volunteers. Her lovely little face can make you smile even on the darkest of days. Each morning she will greet you with her warbled meow, followed by her rolling over for you to tickle her rather chunky tummy!


Sadly, Maddie was abandoned in a property after her owners moved out and left her behind. We don't have an exact age for her but our vet believes she is over 10. Age is nothing but a number to Maddie and she will make a wonderful companion for someone who wants a lap cat (well, a next to your lap cat!) and a best friend. We have carried out x-rays and blood tests on Maddie and apart from some arthritis in her lower spine/hip/pelvis area she is in very good health, although the vets have recommended she loses some weight, tut tut!


When you stroke Maddie she will stretch out and purr away, letting you know how much she loves your attention. She loves to give head bumps and if you've stopped stroking her too soon (how dare you!), she will give you a little head bump to remind you that she’s not yet finished. She absolutely loves having her head and shoulders rubbed down, turning instantly into a mellow purring puddle. Likewise she enjoys a belly rub too however, she is sensitive around the bottom of her back due to the arthritis and can lash out but it's never aggressive, just a warning off. Because of this we would suggest an adult / older children home only because she's remarkably quick and doesn't keep her claws in.


Maddie also loves dangly toys, is an accomplished catcher of balls (she won't run after them but she's a pro-goalie!) and also likes catching the end of a radio aerial. You can sometimes get her to run after this and other dangly things, to keep her activity levels up. Maddie also loves watching nature documentaries, especially ones with birds. She will watch Frozen Planet intently and when we play videos specially made for cats she gets right up to the screen - even if the birds are actually bigger than her on the screen! She's fearless!


Maddie is looking for a retirement home to spend her days being spoilt rotten. She's comfortable around all humans and is utterly adorable, giving us plenty of smiles and giggles with her antics. She's very relaxed generally, sleeping away the day, that's why it's so surprising when something takes her interest and she becomes playful.  As an older lady who isn't interested in lots of strenuous activity, she is suitable to be rehomed as a house cat and we are sure she will love sitting in a windowsill, soaking up some rays and watching the world go by.

As you may notice from her glamorous headshot, Maddie has half an ear missing, we don't know what caused this but the vet thinks it has been amputated at some point in the past and that it doesn’t cause her any issues. Maddie is currently on Metacam every day, a common anti-inflammatory medicine that helps ease her arthritic joints that her new owner will have to pay for for the rest of her life, but it isn't too costly.

Mr Fredericksen

Location: foster

Mr Fredericksen is an absolute hunk of a cat that we estimate at being around 3 years old. He is looking for a new home after his owner moved back to their home country and left him behind in the property with a ruptured diaphragm. We have no idea how long he’d been left like that but thankfully he was rescued by one of our inspectors. He’s now fully recovered from his operation and after being neutered, vaccinated and microchipped is now ready for adoption.

Here is what Mr. Fredericksen’s foster mum has to say about him, ‘When we first got this wee kitty we were trying to think of a name to reflect his personality. It took us a few days but we finally came up with Mr Fredericksen (Freddy). He's got the grumpiest wee face but the softest heart, so naming him after the old man from the film ‘Up!’  was perfect. He loves a cuddle and sleeps for so much of the day. He never bothers us during the night with meowing and doesn't jump up on counters to steal food. All that Mr F wants in life is a quiet home with Dreamies, a soft blanket and someone to cuddle him. There is no doubt he has been through the wars so we think he deserves it!’

Mr Fredericksen is looking for a relaxing home where he can get spoilt rotten. He would be best suited to a home with children of secondary school age as he enjoys his peace and quiet. He is looking for a home with safe access to outdoors so he can go out for fresh air once settled.

If you would like to adopt Mr F contact us today!

Barney & Wilma

Location: foster

We'd like to introduce you to our little orphans Barney and Wilma. The siblings were found dumped in a cardboard box in woodland at just a few weeks of age. Unfortunately the third kitten with them died before the plucky pair were rescued by an RSPCA officer who then went on to hand reared them before passing them on to our branch for rehoming. 
You would never know that Barney and Wilma had such a traumatic start in life as they are now bouncing bundles of joy, full of kitten-ish love and exuberance.


Without a mother to care for them they were hand reared so are very used to being handled and are confident around people of all ages. They love to meet new people and have also made friends with the dog in their foster home.

The pair are very similar in appearance - both a jet black with a small white patch on their chest. Barney is slightly bigger than Wilma, but it is in their personalities that you see the biggest difference. Wilma is definitely the leader of the two with the more adventurous spirit. She is always first to say hello and loves to explore and climb her scratching post. Barney is a bit more reserved than his sister, but curiosity usually gets the better of him and he's never far behind. His confidence is clearly boosted by the presence of his sister so we are rehoming them as a dynamic duo.

This pair of kittens would make a great addition to a family home where they will supply endless amounts of entertainment and love. They have met a number of children, but being kittens they are still getting used to using their teeth and claws appropriately so we wouldn't want to rehome them with children under 7 years of age. They will love to explore the wider world once they are old enough so will need a home with plenty of safe outdoor space to enjoy.
