CAT OF THE MONTH

 

Mister

FAMILY FRIENDLY

Location: foster

Mister is a sweet 4 month old kitten who has been in our care for 9 weeks. This poor little boy was abandoned along with his 2 siblings in a box in a wooded area. What is particularly distressing about their abandonment was that just across the road from the woods was a veterinary practice. We are so lucky that a member of the public stumbled across the kittens and brought them to our attention. These little mites have spent weeks battling ill health and we are both delighted and relived to say they are finally ready to find their forever homes.


Mister is all black except for a few white hairs on his chest. He is a confident and assertive chap who is fond of pushing his siblings out of the way if he thinks they are getting more strokes or food than him! We suspect as he grows old he may prove to be a bully to other cats in the home so we are looking to rehome him as an only cat.    

Mister loves human company as well as playing with his siblings.  He is already turning out to be a lap cat and will headbutt you if he thinks you have stopped fussing him too soon. He is a chatty lad and generally very well behaved for a kitten. He loves his food and has just discovered the joys of cat nip.  One of his favourite activities is to stalk his cat nip mouse and then drag it under the sofa like a mini panther.   

Mister is great with children of all ages and will make an ideal family pet. He is already showing an interest in the view from his window so is hoping for a home with a safe outdoor space to explore when he is old enough. Now he is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and looking for his forever home where he will get plenty of attention and won’t be left for more than 5 to 6 hours a day.

Bo & Jangles

Location: foster

 Bo and Jangles are a pair of 4 month old kitten who are looking to find a home together. They have been in our care for 9 weeks after being abandoned in a box in a wooded area. What is particularly distressing about their abandonment was that just across the road from the woods was a veterinary practice. We are so lucky that a member of the public stumbled across the kittens and brought them to our attention. These little mites have spent weeks battling ill health and we are both delighted and relived to say they are finally ready to find their forever homes.  

Bo is a petite little lady who is completely black except for some brown tabby markings on her face.  It's fair to say that she's not the most good looking kitten that we've looked after but she certainly is one of the sweetest and cuddliest. She has one of the loudest purrs that we've ever heard for such a small thing and saves her loudest ones for when she is being stroked on a human lap.   

Bo loves people, both grown up and children, and will follow them around with her doleful eyes until they stop what they are doing and fuss her. Bo's days are a rotation of food, fuss, play and sleep.  She is an extremely heavy sleeper who finds it a challenge to get out of bed sometimes. Waving a pouch of food under her nose generally does the trick though! Bo is very close to her brother Jangles and so it is essential they are rehomed together.  

Jangles is a lovely black and white boy who has grown in confidence since he came into our care.  He can initially be shy, but once he knows a person he seeks out their attention and cuddles.  He always thanks whoever is feeding him his dinner with a cute headbutt of their hand.  Jangles’ favourite place to be stroked is on his belly; he has a strange habit of flinging himself belly up in front of feet to stop humans  in their tracks for a fuss. Until he is a bit bigger, any new owner will have to take care to avoid standing on him!   

Jangles loves his sister and a good part of his day is spent cleaning and chasing her. He is also an excellent insect catcher, which could prove useful in his forever home!  

Both Bo and Jangles are neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and are waiting to hear from adopters who are looking for soppy purr machines to brighten up their lives. The kittens will be suitable to live with children of primary school age and are looking for a home with a suitable outdoor space to enjoy once old enough. With only being young the maximum they can be left for the next few months is 5 hours.

Heidi

Location: cattery

Heidi is a sweet and dribbly 2 year old cat who is looking for a new home after being rescued from a multi-cat household where her welfare needs were not being met. She’s spent the past 3 weeks recovering from her ordeal in our cattery but she is now getting to grips with her new surroundings and is ready for visitors.


Heidi took her name a little too literally when she first arrived in our care and decided hiding in her bed was the best option. Thankfully she’s starting to gain confidence and explore her pen. Heidi is very sweet; she adores a fuss, especially a good ear massage which will likely get her dribbling within in a few seconds. If she’s not quite brave enough to leave the comfort of her bed then she’ll still accept strokes and will roll over and nuzzle into your hand whilst purring.


Heidi is looking for a patient owner who will let her hideaway for the first few weeks. She’ll soon start venturing out and settling in if the environment is calm and peaceful. She would be best suited to an adult only home with 1 or 2 adults. She has lived with other cats before so may tolerate sharing her new home with a placid feline.

Ozzy

RESERVED

Location: cattery

Ozzy is a deliciously handsome 7 year old, semi long haired cat who has been in RSPCA care for 3 months. He has finally been signed over for rehoming and we are so excited to be able to share with the world the very gorgeous and very affectionate Ozzy.


Ozzy was abandoned in a property after his owner was sent to prison. It has taken all this time to get him awarded to our care and available for rehoming. He has been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and raring to find a new home and to play outdoors again.


Ozzy is a real charmer who is not backwards in coming forward for a fuss and a love. He will happily sit on your lap and be told how devilishly attractive he is! Ozzy may be 7 years old but he is so spritely he could easily be mistaken for 3. This boy is yearning to be back in home comforts being showered with love and attention. Can you give him a fantastic new home? Ozzy is suitable to live with children aged 5 and over and would prefer to be the only cat.

If you would like to adopt Ozzy contact us today!

Flossy

*Cat friendly*

Location: foster

Flossy is a dainty 8 month old lioness whose fluffy fins and squeaky meow make her a heart breaker. Flossy came into our care back in December 2016 from a multi cat household where breeding was out of control. She was just 4 months old and didn’t take too kindly to being rescued but after 4 months in our care she is now a new woman who loves her people.

Flossy takes a few days to settle into a new home but soon starts letting you know that she’s ready for a fuss with a sweet little meow. Chin tickles, cheek rubs and back scratches are on her to do list and she’ll quickly start purring and rubbing around your legs if you oblige. Once she’s fully acquainted with you then lap cuddles and naps on your belly will come next. She’s so affectionate once you’ve made friends. It’s taken Flossy many months to become a ‘normal’ cat, she can still be a little nervous around new people and seems to prefer women over men but anyone who approaches her sensitively and gives her time to settle will be rewarded with her love.

Flossy is looking for an adult only home with a patient owner, it’ll only be a matter of days before she’s asking for attention but she needs space to settle. Flossy needs a home with a safe outdoor area so she can play outside once settled and is currently on a Felix tuna and cod sachet diet as dry food upsets her stomach. She has lived with other cats in the past so would be suitable to share her home with another friendly feline.

Rosie

HOUSE CAT

Location: foster

Rosie was found limping by a member of the public, thankfully the alerted the National RSPCA inspectorate and she was duly rescued. Sadly we found out that she had a badly fractured leg. We speculated that maybe Rosie had been in a traffic accident but as we have got to know Rosie we have begun to question whether she might have gained it by some other means.


Rosie’s leg was so badly damaged that the National RSPCA vets had no choice but to amputate the leg. She has been in foster care since then recovering from her surgery and revealed to us two very different responses to people. With one male member of the foster family she has grown an incredibly strong attachment and enjoys a truly loving relationship with, but with the two women in the house she cowers from them and hisses. As you will appreciate we cannot determine whether this really is a gender issue but it has made us question if she has had a bad experience at the hands of humans in the past.


Rosie’s best friend in the foster home says: “Rosie is a gorgeous, little black cat who is incredibly inquisitive and doesn’t let her lack of a front paw stop her from moving about and exploring. She is rather timid at first but once you gain her trust she is very affectionate and can spend hours cuddling with you. Once she is comfortable with you, you will notice that she will follow you around the house and sit beside you, always ready for another belly rub.”


If Rosie attaches herself to you she will happily spend all day with you enjoying a cosy lap or sitting by your side. She seems to thrive off a one-to-one relationship and the routine of one (or possibly two) carers. Her attachment to her main foster carer is so heart-warming and shows the enormous potential in this little girl. We can only speculate what might have happened to her in the past to be so timid of some people and it truly is puzzling.


We estimate Rosie to be around 1 year old and she does get along with other cats. We are looking to rehome her as indoor cat, but access to a safe outdoor space would be a bonus. We think she would be best suited to a very quiet home of just one or two people. We are not specifying a gender for her adopter as we have seen her be comfortable with female staff when she has gone for vet check-up, so if you feel you might have the magic touch to win this sweet girl’s affections please give us a call.

Emmeline

FAMILY FRIENDLY

RESERVED

Location: cattery

Emmeline is approximately 1 year old girl who was found stray and pregnant. For any animal to be homeless is so terribly sad but with this lady being so exceptionally friendly it is hard to understand how she has found herself without a home to call her own.


Emmeline loves kissing your face and putting her paws on your shoulders to get as up close and personal as possible. She simply adores people and attention and needs so desperately to be in a home where she can be showered with affection. She has unusual markings and is really quite a beauty. 


Emmeline is used to spending time outdoors so once settled will need to be able to come and go as she pleases. Emmeline is not a fan of other cats so needs to be the only one in the home. She is family friendly and can live with children confident around overly familiar cats!

If you would like to adopt Emmeline contact us today! Email or call 0161 882 0680.

 

Peggy & Pickle

Location: foster

Meet Peggy and Pickle, two lonely kittens who found each other in foster care and formed a bond so strong that it would be a crime to separate them. Peggy was a 5 week old orphan when she joined Pickle, a 16 week old lad who had just been separated from his mother. Just three weeks later and you’d think they were siblings if it wasn’t for the size difference, although Peggy obviously wears the trousers in this relationship!

Peggy is confident, cheeky and loud! She knows what she wants and she’ll tell you if she thinks you’ve forgotten it. She wants the best of everything: food, toys and cuddles and why not after the start she’s had. They say opposites attract and that’s certainly the case here as Pickle is sweet, gentle and a little nervous of strangers but with Peggy’s help he soon finds his confidence. The most noise you get from him is a loud contented purr during cuddle time. Peggy and Pickle enjoy sharing every aspect of life together; they will chase each other around the house, share toys of all kinds, and then after a long day being crazy kittens will curl up together on the sofa for a well-earned snooze.


The pair are looking for a forever home together where they can play safely outdoors once old enough and where any children are of secondary school age. Pickle is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped however Peggy is still a little on the small side so she is vaccinated but the branch will pay for her to be neutered once she’s grown up a little. Peggy is a fussy eater who has developed a taste for tinned Applaws chicken cat food accompanied by James Wellbeloved dry, Pickle is more than happy with this diet too.
