Kath & Kim

Location: cattery

Meet our stunning blue eyed ladies Kath and Kim! Kath has a chocolate coloured coat and is approximately 5 years of age. Kim is brown and white and we think slightly younger at around 2 years of age. The cats were removed from a home of multiple cats and and dogs where things had got out of hand. Kath and Kim had been kept in a crate together for a prolonged period of time judging by the condition they were in. They had fleas, their coats were dishevelled and Kath had pyometra (an infection of the womb). Thankfully this was caught in the nick of time and despite their incarceration these girls remain best friends. 


After veterinary treatment and care from our staff and volunteers these girls have turned into absolute stunners with a renewed zest for life.  The girls are extremely close, probably related in some way, and we are looking for a home where they can live out the rest of their days with the space, care and love that they deserve.


The girls have very different personalities but the thing they do have in common is that they are making the most of their new found freedom and can tear around like kittens.  We think this is fantastic given their terrible past but any prospective adopter needs to be aware that they may have a few knocked over water bowls to contend with as the pair settle in! Kath is very outgoing and happy to ask for attention. She is extremely friendly and we expect her to settle in easily as long as her adopter provides plenty of strokes and cuddles. Kim is more reserved and will take a while to accept being touched,  although she doesn't seem to be scared of humans. She will happily walk across a lap to get where she wants to go and loves playing fetch! 


The girls are currently in our cattery but they have spent time in a foster home. Their foster carer described them as very cute, inquisitive and playful, but also a bit noisy. When there are humans willing to listen to them the girls will chatter away excitedly! 


We are looking for a very special forever home for Kath and Kim with patient adopters who are prepared to  provide the care, routine and boundaries they need. Both girls are fast learners so we don't anticipate this will be a problem. Their foster mum has gradually given them more space in her home to roam and although initially they cried a lot at night  this has stopped now they have learned a new night time routine.  Kath and Kim may not have been outside before so will need  access to a safe space outdoors to explore and relax in. The girls are neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and ready to chat to their prospective adopters.

If you would like to adopt the girls contact us today!

Surprise

Location: cattery

Do you like Surprises? Well you'll definitely love this one. Surprise is an unusually named cat who came into our care after being found stray and drooling heavily. It turns out he had an injury to his tongue most likely as a result of licking something caustic. Thankfully this has now healed up nicely, so hopefully he's learnt to be a bit more careful about what he licks in the future!

Surprise is a very handsome male cat around 3 years old with a beautiful black coat. His favourite thing to do is sit on a comfy human lap and receive a fuss. He is one friendly boy who adores people and so far he's sat on everyone he's met! If you are looking for an adoring companion to lavish attention on and cuddle up with on the sofa then Surprise could be just the cat you are looking for. He's definitely the sort of cat who will be waiting at the door for you when you get home, ready to tell you how much he's missed you.


Surprise is looking for a home where he will be the only cat. He would be fine to be left at home whilst his adopter was at work - as long as you promised to devote yourself to giving him chin rubs and kisses as soon as you clock off. He will need to have access to a safe outdoor space once he's settled into his new home. The only surprise will be if Surprise isn't quickly snapped up - he's a lovely cat.

If you would like to adopt Surprise contact us today!

Rogue

Location: cattery

Rogue is a very loving and attentive cat who enjoys human company and playing with fishing rod toys. It makes it all the more sad when you learn that he was a stray for several months, hanging around at take away (what a smart lad!). Rogue came into RSPCA care after obtaining an abscess to his front right leg, most likely as a result of a cat bite. It soon healed in no time and he has since been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. We estimate Rogue to be around 2 to 3 years old and is such a wonderful natured boy.


Our cat socialisers describe Rogue as being a gentle boy who meows with excitement when you go in to see him. They say he is a friendly boy who will weave around your legs and roll on his back for belly rubs. At the moment Rogue especially enjoys interacting with us through play and it's so wonderful to see this formerly unloved moggy enjoy life and have fun as much as he does. The way to his heart is definitely through dangly toys and telling him just how handsome he is. 


Rogue is a confident cat who will be fine to live with a family with children aged 5 and over. He would probably be best suited to being the only cat in the home and he must be able to go outside and play, so a ground floor property away from busy roads is essential. If you can offer a home to our lovable Rogue then please get in touch.

If you would like to adopt Rogue contact us today!

Brian

Location: foster

Brian is a gorgeous, snugglepuss who has come into our care after being found homeless with a nasty abscess near his left ear. It was most likely as a result of being attached by another cat, but after treatment it cleared up quickly.  

Brian is around 8 years old and after having had a hard life on the streets he is now loving life in a foster home. He has endless amounts of love to give and brightens our foster carers lives each and every day. This is what they have to say about him:  

"Brian is a very handsome, cuddly boy who loves attention and treats. He spends most of his day lazing in a patch of sun and snoozing. He is very affectionate and has a very loving nature. He would benefit from being in a household with people around for most of the day, where there’s always an opportunity for a snuggle."  

Brian is looking for a home with no other cats, where he can go out to play should he wish, and where there are people around quite a bit for him to catch a fuss with. He would be best suited to a calm environment, perhaps where any children are of secondary school age and over. It will be love at first sight when you meet him. Please get in touch if you are looking for a companion to fill your heart and home with love.

Waldo & Hope

Watch a video of the kittens here!

Location: foster home

We are looking for a very special home for this special pair of kittens. who were born by emergency caesarian on the 24th of April along with one other sibling. His mum did a wonderful job of raising her litter and they've grown up to be a healthy, strapping trio.


Sadly it became apparent when the kittens were around 4 weeks of age and beginning to explore the world that Hope had little or no sight. Initially we hoped she was just developing slowly and struggling to focus, but there has been no improvement in her condition. She has been examined by the vets who say that, as her pupils are reactive, she may be able to distinguish some light and shadow, but she is blind. Hope (tabby and white) really is a remarkable spirit and upon first meeting her you wouldn't notice that there was anything different about her. She copes incredibly well and is able to enjoy everything that kittens find fun in - wrestling with her brothers, chasing toys and climbing. The only real difference that you notice in her is that she takes a bit longer to explore and new environment than her sighted brothers and that she can, understandably, get worried when being picked up and in a carrier. Hope needs to be rehomed with her brother Waldo (pure tabby) in a home where there are no other cats (or dogs.)


Waldo is a smashing lad with a mighty purr. He is inquisitive and playful and loves to run and jump about the place. When he was young Waldo was particularly keen on exploring the world with his tongue and liked to try licking everything. He's mostly grown out of this, but he still enjoys a nice bare leg to lick! His facial markings make him look a bit worried at times, but he's pretty carefree. Hope and Waldo are looking for a very specific type of home. Waldo needs to be able to go outside to play once he is old enough, but Hope will need to be a house cat, so a home where this can be managed is required.

Due to Hope's blindness a quiet house without too many people or any other pets would be best, and in a home where she can easily find her way around familiar spaces - so no potential interior designers who like to shift their furniture regularly and no budding hoarders for Hope. Whilst they are still small they can't be left for more that 4-5 hours at a time. As with all young kittens they are still learning how to use teeth and claws appropriately, so wouldn't be suitable to live with young children.

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

 

 

Dita

CAT FRIENDLY

Location: foster

Dita is a beautiful black cat who came into our care from a home overrun with cats and kittens. She had two tiny kittens with her who she has dutifully nursed and raised the most gorgeous little boys. Now it is Dita's turn to shine and so in preparation for her forever home she has been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.


This is what her foster carers have to day about Dita:  

"Like her namesake, Dita is a strong and independent little lady who is fiercely beautiful but warm and friendly. She has done a fantastic job as a mum to her two boys but we think it’s her turn to be the centre of attention now.

Dita is a huge softie and loves having her back and chin scratched. She is a chatty girl and isn’t afraid to tell you when she wants food or attention. Her purr is quite funny as she sounds very similar to a pigeon cooing; it always makes us laugh! She loves to sit beside you and let you fuss over her and seems to think she is a dog rather than a cat and wags her tail when she is content.

Dita is keen to go outdoor to play and we often find her spending hours sat on the window sill than playing with toys, but she will tackle a catnip mouse every now and again when she feels like it. We think that Dita will love being the centre of someone’s world and will make a lovely family pet, ideally in a home where children are above primary school age or above, as she can sometimes be wary of loud noises and lots of movement. Dita really is a gorgeous girl and she really has made our house feel more like a home. Having come a home with lots of cat Dita may be able to live with another placid cat, given careful introductions and plenty of space.

If you would like to adopt Dita contact us today!

Hazel

Location: cattery

Hazel was abandoned in a suitcase with her 3 new born kittens on one of the hottest days of the year. Tragically one of the kittens had already died by the time they were found. It is a miracle that all three pulled through their ordeal, but Hazel was a fantastic mum and did a great job caring for her babies. Now her kittens have been rehomed it is Hazel’s turn to find a very special home.  

We are looking for an experienced cat owner who is willing to consider providing a home to a lovely girl who, because of her previous experiences, is scared to show affection to humans. Hazel needs to find a forever home with patient adopters who will let her settle in at her own pace and not expect too much for a good while until she has learned to trust people again.  

Hazel was originally in foster care where initially she would accept strokes and belly rubs. She even enjoyed a good play every night chasing her favourite 'fishing rod' toy. When she was taken to the vet to have her second vaccinations Hazel then became very distressed at being placed in a carrier and has been quite unsettled and scared of human touch ever since. She continued to play and would sit adoringly at her foster carer's feet whilst they worked at the desk in her room but when the time came to separate Hazel from her kittens she became subdued and withdrawn. We desperately want to find her a permanent home so she can start on what we expect will be a long journey to settle in, relax and begin to bond with her adopters. We know she has potential but we need to find a special person that can appreciate that too and give Hazel a much needed opportunity for happiness.   

Hazel loves play, catnip and chicken! We have worked out a way of persuading her into a carrier for vet visits which involves chicken bribes and she is much happier to go for veterinary care.   

Hazel will need her own quiet room in an adult only home in which to settle in and relax before being offered the rest of the house to explore. Too much space at once does overwhelm her so small steps in changes will be necessary. An ideal scenario would be if her adopter worked from home and was willing to let Hazel share part of their office space, as we think she would benefit from the routine of non-threatening contact. We are not sure if Hazel has ever been outside but we would like her to have the opportunity eventually if it is something she shows an interest in.    Hazel is vaccinated, neutered and microchipped.

If you would like to adopt Hazel contact us today!

Tia

Location: foster home

Tia is a beautiful tabby girl around 4 years old who is looking for a new home after being found stray with her skin and coat in poor condition. After spending time in foster care recuperating Tia is looking great and ready to move to a forever home. Although our foster carers try not to have favourites, Tia's carer has admitted that of all the cats she's looked after for us, Tia is definitely her favourite!


Here's what she has to say about our gorgeous girl: 'Tia is a gentle, friendly and loving soul who is so undemanding and easy to get on with. She can be lively and playful hiding in her cat tunnel to pounce on her toys. However, each evening she snuggles up next to me with her head on my lap purring loudly whilst I stroke her. When I come home from a day at work she is there loyally waiting for me on the window sill giving me a warm welcome home! Of all the cats I've cared for I would say she enjoys the company of people the most. She is so well behaved and tolerant and will make a fantastic companion to her adopter(s).'


Tia has been very happy in her quiet foster home where she is left for about 6 hours on week days, so could live in a home where the owners are out at work full time.  Tia's foster mum says once she gets to know you she is great company and would suit a home where any children are of secondary school age. She will need to have access to a safe outdoor space to explore once she has settled in. In the meantime a sunny windowsill she can use as a lookout post will do!


Tia has a small area in one of her eyes where it is a different colour to the iris. This has been monitored by a vet for changes over the last few weeks and there have been none. The vet  has no concerns but we just need to make any potential adopter aware of this presentation. Please don't let that put you off, it only serves to enhance her beauty!

Maxine & Bill

RESERVED

Location: foster home

Maxine (dark tortie) and Bill (tabby and white) are 11 week old siblings who have come into our care after being abandoned with their mum and 2 brothers outside a shop in Bradford. They have spent the last few weeks being looked after in a foster home and are now happy and healthy kittens.


These two are looking for a home together because they are such a great match. Their favourite past time is a jolly good wrestle with one another. They just can't get enough rough and tumble, although they will turn their heads to chase a clockwork mouse! In fact chase is another of their favourite games, especially through a tunnel. They really are wonderfully lively and playful little furry folk who are fond of fishing rod toys and bouncing about having fun.


Maxine is quite the brave little lady. Recently she got stung on her paw by a wasp but she was so stoic and just continued running  around the place regardless. She is a strong and independent little lady who does not have a meow to match her character . It's only when she tries really hard to meow that you get a funny little squeak out of her, the rest of the time there is barely a murmur! Bill on the otherhand is renowned for is mischievous antics. When all his siblings are snuggled up together snoozing his trick is to plonk himself on top of them and create a kitten pile on!


These kittens are hugely entertaining and will suit a family home with children of secondary school age and over. Whilst so young they cannot be left more than 5 hours. Once old enough they will need to be able to access outdoors, so a ground floor property on a quiet road is essential.

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