CAT OF THE MONTH

 

 

Marley

Location: foster care

Marley is a lovely, but slightly sensitive chap, who is 2 years old and is already on his third place of residence in his short life. He was originally adopted from a rescue centre as a kitten but sadly his owner recently became ill and is longer able to care for him. Marley is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped so is ready for his fourth and final home.  

Marley is used to living in a quiet home environment with one main carer so we are looking to recreate this to make the move as stress free as possible. This is because prior to, and since, coming into our care Marley has had a history of stress-related urine infections and will need to be on a wet food-only diet to keep his hydration levels up. He is best on Royal Canin sensitivity pouches. We will assist any adopter with the settling in of Marley into his new home including any veterinary issues related to the bladder, but longer term any adopter needs to know that is may recur at times of stress and be prepared to take on this additional cost. This is what his foster mum has to say about this gorgeous boy:  

“Marley is a sweet little boy with a spice of mischief.  He loves human company - he greets me by kissing me nose-to-nose and chats away with chirps and trills.  He is into laps and belly rubs and is a perfect gentleman over things like claw clipping and pills.  He also loves to play and when he's lost his favourite ping pong ball under the furniture he'll make do with rummaging in carrier bags and unwinding loo rolls.    

He's a keen climber and explorer and although he's been an indoor cat in his original home he's fascinated by everything going on outdoors.  He really wants to make friends with my two resident cats but despite his best, submissive noises and body language, they are grumpy old codgers and don't want to know!  So I think he has possibilities for venturing outside and sharing his space.  

He has ridiculously clever paws and has figured out all my puzzle feeders within minutes.  The highlight of his week is to combine all his talents and come in the home-office with me to climb the bookshelves and hunt for treats.  His one bad habit is chewing hands - it's never aggressive, he's just a baby who still explores everything with his mouth.  

The most important thing for his new family to know is that he needs the chance to explore and approach at his own cautious pace.  Big changes make him anxious and based on his stay with me, it will take a few weeks to a month before he starts playing and confidently asking for fuss - he's like a guy who doesn't like to kiss til the third date!  But if you're willing to give him time, you'll be rewarded by seeing his adorable little personality unfold.”  

Marley ideally needs an adult only home (teenagers are fine) with one or two people, where he can settle in slowly. He is looking for a home in a safe location where he can potter outside once he’s settled in if he pleases. Marley needs to be the only pet in the home.

Missy

RESERVED

Location: cattery

Little Missy is a 2 year old slender cat looking for a new home after she was abandoned outside a vets with the heavy burden of 6 newborn kittens! They were just 3 days old when the young family came into our care and Missy has spent the last 2 months raising them in a foster home. Now that the kittens are old enough Missy has been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and is ready to find a loving home of her own.  

Missy is a curious cat who enjoys prowling round the house, rubbing round legs and once settled, playing games. She enjoys human attention but it takes her a while to bond enough for a cuddle, she’ll sit on your knee for a few minutes but then be off on the next adventure. But once you are best friends then she’ll thank you for strokes with a deafening purr. Missy’s quite a placid girl who takes everything in her stride. Bringing up 6 kittens was no easy task but she was extremely tolerant and even put up with them playing with her tail and chewing her ears as they grew older and more mischievous. It’s time now for Missy to be centre of attention; she needs some well deserved pampering and a little TLC.  

Missy is looking for a home where she can explore, enjoy adventures outdoors and have fusses with her human friends. She would be suitable to live with children aged 5 years and over and may be tolerant of another friendly feline in the home.

If you would like to adopt Missy contact us today!

Rosita

Location: foster

Rosita and her family came into our care after finding themselves unwanted and homeless. Rosita is a pretty tabby and white little girl. She is quite shy but does enjoy having a fuss and stroke when she gets to know you. She is confident when playing with her toys or with her siblings but this little mite is shy.


Rosita is being fed on Royal Canin sensitivity wet and dry food due to having a sensitive tummy. It is a lot better now but still as the odd loose stool so she needs to stay on this diet for the time being. 


Rosita is looking for a home with secondary school aged children or older and ideally needs a home with other cat-friendly cats or with one of her siblings. Rosita cannot be left for more 5 hours at a time whilst young and will need access to a safe, outdoor space when she's older.

If you would like to adopt Rosita contact us today!

Daryl

Location: foster

Daryl and his family came into our care after finding themselves unwanted and homeless. Daryl is a sweet little boy who hasn't had an easy start to life. At 4 weeks old his mum came into season and wouldn't let him feed from her. He wouldn't initially take supplement feeds and so became dangerously underweight. His foster mum battled hard to raise this wee lad and thanks to her diligence and care he has fully recovered and is now a good weight and fit and well. 


Daryl is a lovely natured boy who loves having his tummy rubbed and enjoys being stroked and fussed. He is very playful and loves his food. But nobody can be purrfect, Daryl can be nervous when meeting new people and needs time to grow in confidence and trust. For this reasons we are looking to rehome him with older children, secondary school years and over.  He ideally needs a home with other cat-friendly cats or with one of his siblings. Daryl cannot be left for more 5 hours at a time whilst young and will need access to a safe, outdoor space when he's older.

Daryl is being fed on Royal Canin sensitivity wet and dry food due to having an upset tummy a few weeks ago. This has now settled but to keep him that way we advise he stay on this diet for the time being.

If you would like to adopt Daryl contact us today!

Coconut

RESERVED

Location: cattery

Coconut is a beautiful tabby and white cat around 2 years old. She’s been living on the streets of Manchester since she was a youngster but thankfully she’s had many human friends feeding and looking out for her. Coconut’s had a fair few litters in her short life but as soon as we heard about her plight we can to her rescue and she’s now been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped so can put motherhood behind her.


A fussy little lady lounging in her hammock is what you’ll find when entering Coconut’s pen. She’s eager for attention and always seems pleasantly surprised to have guests. She loves a stroke but can be a little hand shy around her head so prefers back strokes and sensitive ear and chin tickles. She’ll roll around in her hammock enjoying the fuss and purring with delight, whilst she hasn’t had a loving home for a long while she certainly enjoys the home comforts and human attention the cattery has brought her.


Coconut is looking for a home where any children are of secondary school age or above. She’ll enjoy a safe outdoor area to play once settled and would possibly be willing to share her home with another friendly feline.

If you would like to adopt Coconut contact us today!

Tibbles

Location: cattery

Presenting her majesty, Queen Tibbles.  She’s 14 years old, fit as a fiddle and eager to fill empty laps. Tibbles is looking for a home after being found stray with a nasty abscess on her neck and her coat thick with mats. What makes her story even more sad is that she was microchipped but her owners had moved away and not updated her details, so we can only assume she was purposely left behind. This is desperately sad because at such an age and with such a long coat, she really didn't stand a chance, but thankfully her plight was alerted to the RSPCA and the inspectors came to her rescue. After a month’s rehabilitation which has involved a geriatric health screen, many dental extractions and a rather unstylish 'shave' she is finally ready for adoption.  

Tibbles is amazing. She is content wherever she’s put as long as there’s a cosy bed and a servant to feed, brush and fuss her. She’s got a long coat but she adores being groomed; she’ll circle around your legs purring whilst you brush through her luscious locks. As soon as you sit down Tibbles will be out of bed in a flash and up on your knee. She has a built in radar that senses when a lap is available!  She’ll settle down and curl up and that’ll be it for an hour; definitely handy for those winter months. All in all Tibbles is just great, given her past it’s amazing she still loves people so much, but she really does!

Tibbles is looking for a peaceful home to spend her final years resting, purring and being adored in. With any luck she’ll have many more years of being pampered ahead of her, she's so young spirited that we wouldn't be surprised if she lived until she was 20! She would be best suited to a home with children of secondary school age or above and where she can have safe strolls outdoors once settled.

Sasha

Location: cattery

Sweet little Sasha is around 2 years and is more deserving of a loving, stable home than most. She is in our care after her original owner gave up looking after her so a neighbour started to feed her instead, this went on for a year until Sasha fell pregnant and neither the owner or the neighbour were able to deal with the situation so she came into our care. It is amazing that Sasha is so friendly and affectionate. Now that she’s raised her litter of 3 and she’s been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped she is ready for a forever home.


Sasha is lovely, you’ll find her curled up in her hammock ready for a fuss and eager to make friends. She’s a petite lady who’ll rub around your hands, nuzzle your face and circle your legs, she just loves people. She has a delicate meow which she’ll use to get your attention if you fuss over the other cats too much. Being young she has a playful side and we often find an exploded pompom or the remains of a toy mouse that she’s destroyed over night; so far we’ve not seen her hunting skills in person, just the evidence of it each morning!


Sasha is looking for a stable home, she would be suitable to live with children of secondary school age and would enjoy a safe outdoor environment to play out in once settled.

If you would like to adopt Sasha contact us today!

Tara

Location: foster

Tara and her family came into our care after finding themselves unwanted and homeless. Tara is a beautiful black kitten with a white tip at the end of her tail and white toes on her back feet and is around 9 weeks old. She loves attention and rolls around purring while enjoying a fuss and having her tummy rubbed. She can be nervous at first with new people but will come running over to meet you when her confidence grows. She is very playful with her toys and loves chasing round with her siblings.    


Tara is being fed on Royal Canin sensitivity wet and dry food due to having an upset tummy a few weeks ago. This has now settled but to keep her that way we advise she stay on this diet for the time being. Tara loves her food and is quite greedy!


Tara is looking for a home with older children and ideally needs a home with other cat-friendly cats or with one of her siblings. Tara cannot be left for more 5 hours at a time whilst young and will need access to a safe, outdoor space when she's older.

Ryuk

Location: foster

Whether it’s a play mate, a cuddle companion or a best friend you’re after then Ryuk is your guy (pronounced Ree-ook). He’s just under 4 months old and is finally ready for adoption after spending a month in foster care recovering from a nasty cold. He’s neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped and is raring to go!

Ryuk came to us with his two brothers and mother after their owner could no longer care for them due to mental health issues. His brothers quickly got rehomed but thanks to a persistent sniffle Ryuk was kept behind. He’s spent the past month chasing the existing cats in the foster home, squaring up to the visiting dog, curling himself round his foster mums face (he likes to get as close to you as possible) and playing his favourite game, kicking litter out of the cat box. He’s super playful, super affectionate and best of all super confident. Nothing phases him and he greets all visitors with an up close and personal face inspection. He is officially the best kitten in the world!

Ryuk would be suitable to live in most homes. He enjoys tormenting older cats but is also happy entertaining himself. He loves being picked up and cuddled and is old enough that he can be left 5-6 hours a day. He is suitable to live with children but can still be quite scratchy during playtime so children aged 5 and above would be best. He is looking for a home where he can play outdoors once old enough.
