CAT OF THE MONTH

 

 

Dennis

Location: cattery

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 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 now fully recovered and is ready to move on to his forever home.  

Dennis is a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde kind of character as you never know what you’re going to get with him, he can be an angel full of love and affectionate one minute, and an absolute rascal that see’s fingers and toes as play things the next. He’s never nasty but his play hunting can certainly put people off, especially if you aren’t keen on being chewed! When he’s having a chilled moment he’ll come and curl up on your lap and enjoy having chin and cheek tickles, he’ll purr away and be an absolute delight but it won’t be long before he’s off pouncing on something and causing trouble again. He’s a cheeky monkey but we love him to bits and all suspect that he’ll be a lot more relaxed when he can go outside and burn off some steam.

Dennis is approx. 2 to 3 years old and is looking for a home where any children are 8 or over. Despite having 3 legs he is a whirlwind of energy and needs space to play outdoors safely so a quiet or secure garden would be ideal.

Pippy

Location: foster

Our 5 year old Pippy princess is looking for a new home after her owner was forced to leave their property and move top social housing. She can be quite unimpressed with people on first sight but soon mellows in to a friendly and affection cat that enjoys sharing a bed and watching TV. Pippy was already neutered so after vaccinations, a microchip and a thorough health check she is eager to find some stability in a new home.

Pippy is a funny little character that can be a little unsure of new people but soon comes round to the idea of having a servant to wait on her hand and foot. She may give a little hiss on first meeting but it’s all a front, within a few minutes of talking nicely to her and offering a hand to sniff she’ll be rubbing round your legs and within a week will be curling up next to you under the duvet. Pippy likes a bit of a fuss, a quick play, a lap around the garden then a snooze, who doesn’t! She prefers curling up beside you on the sofa rather than on your lap but she adores a chin and face rub and will even reach her paw out to you to ask for more. She sometimes isn’t in the mood for attention so will curl herself up in a box or spend some time lounging on her corrugated cardboard bed. She is very fond of cat nip and will demonstrate her full acrobatic skills with a cat nip mouse on a string, she has even been found in the cupboard getting out her own cat nip toys!

She is a curious cat who loves the outdoors; nothing makes her happier than a bit of fresh air and a perch on a shed roof. Pippy’s been in our care since March but has been held back from adoption due to her over grooming her tail, this has now stopped and the vets believe it was due to the stress from all the change in circumstances. She is a sensitive girl who gets spooked by strange noises and unknown faces so it’s no surprise she struggled so much to begin with, thankfully now she is healthy and ready to go.

Pippy has very simple needs; a quiet adult only home and a garden, and if it’s not too much to ask, a cat nip mouse. She would suit someone who was at work during the day but had a cat flap so she could come and go as she pleased and then curl up with you in the evenings for some tea and telly.

Leo

Location: foster

Leo has come into our care after his mum was desperately coping with her 3rd litter of kittens as a stray. Thankfully the National RSPCA inspectors came to their rescue and they have been safely cared for in a foster home ever since. This is what his foster mum has to say about Leo:

"Leo is a very confident little kitten and loves anyone and everyone he meets! He is very vocal and will let you know if he is hungry or wants a cuddle. He loves being stroked and enjoys sitting on your knee or sleeping at the foot of the bed. He loves to play with pom poms and his toy mouse, but his favourite thing to play with is shoes, regardless of whether or not someone is wearing them. He loves being cuddled and kissed and may try to lick you to death!

Leo also loves having his tummy rubbed. Leo is very curious and loves to explore. He will happily follow you around the house like a little sidekick!  Although confident, Leo is very gentle and quiet and loves to nap! He likes to play fight with his brothers and snuggle with them in an armchair. Leo's brothers are much more boisterous than him so we think he will be better suited to living with an older cat who is a little calmer."

Leo has been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and can live with a very calm and cat-friendly dog. He needs a home with a calmer, adult cat and where any children are aged 5 and over. Being so little he cannot be left for more than 5 hours at a time.

Belle

Location: foster

Cute old lady coming through! Belle is a 12 year old tabby cat looking for a new home to spend her twilight years after coming into our care due to welfare concerns as her owner had a change in circumstances. She’s been in our care for some time as she was suffering with hyper thyroid which after 6 months we finally have under control. She’s made herself very comfortable in her foster home; here is what her foster mum has to say about her: 

‘Belle has a very gentle nature and being an older lady she does love to snooze a lot but there is also a cheeky side to her, she enjoys helping with the laundry and will sit in the washing machine or tumble dryer as you’re emptying it. She also enjoys playing and at times can be heard charging about upstairs chasing toys on her own.  

Belle does enjoy pottering around the garden everyday but she doesn’t venture far, she just takes in the fresh air and takes a turn around the lawn before heading home.  Belle is very good at wrapping you around her little paws and she can be quite demanding, when belle is not happy with what’s on the menu she will pester you (meow) and try to climb up your leg until you give in and get her what she wants which is always chicken.’  

Belle is a very special girl looking for a quiet home where she can spend the rest of her days relaxing, being spoilt and most of all being loved. A lap to fill and a bed or chair to snooze on is all she dreams of. Belle doesn’t like dogs or other cats so needs to be in a home without other pets but she is used to living with small children.  

Belle is on medication in order to keep her healthy, she has Metacam once a day for arthritis (mixed in her food), and to keep her hyperthyroid under control she is on Kaminox (a potassium supplement also mixed in her food) twice a day and Methimazole cream wiped on her ear twice a day. The daily cost of her medication including vets dispensing fees for each medication is £5.11. She is on a variety of foods depending on what she fancies that day; Felix, Whiskas, Gourmet, Sheba.

Joanie

Location: cattery

Joanie is a smashing cat around 5 years of age. She is looking for a new home after she was found stray with an injured leg, poor girl. Thankfully she was collected by the National RSPCA inspectors and received the veterinary attention she needed, sadly her owner could not be traced. She is now fighting fit and after being vaccinated and microchipped (she was already neutered) she is ready to find a new home.

Joanie is everything you could wish for from a companion; she is calm, quiet, and loves to cosy up on your knee. She can be a little shy at first but soon moseys on over to you for strokes and if she sees an empty knee then it’s her absolute pleasure to fill it. She has a playful streak but generally choses cuddles over cat and mouse games. Joanie has been an excellent guest whilst she’s been in our care, she spends her day curled up in her cardboard box, she’s very clean and makes very little fuss, she is just a pleasure to have around and certainly knows how to make you feel loved.

Joanie is looking for a peaceful home where she can get plenty of love and cosy nights in, in front of the TV. She would be well suited to a home with older children or where the children have perhaps fled the nest so she can get all the love instead! She is looking for a home on a quiet street where she can stretch her legs outdoors.

Bagheera

DOG FRIENDLY

Location: foster

Bagheera is a 1 year old cheeky monkey looking for a new home after his owner was evicted from their property so he had nowhere to go. He has been in a foster home settling in and now after a few weeks TLC  and being neutered, vaccinated and microchipped he is in our cattery and ready for adoption.

Bagheera is a smashing cat who loves life. After an initial shy period he quickly became best buddies with the Daschund in the foster home and soon started to liven up the place with his endless energy and hijinks.  He loves playing, investigating and of course cuddling. He followed his foster mum around the house all day long and would ‘help out’ in any way possible. He spent hours trying to figure out how to open the back door and almost managed it once or twice too, this cat has brains! And when the adventures are over he’ll wait until you’ve settled down on the sofa and jump up for a lap cuddle, he’s a real star.

Bagheera just loves to play and is happy to join in games with cats, dogs or older children. He would be best suited to living with children over 8 years old and will need a home with safe access to outdoors.

If you would like to adopt Bagheera contact us today!

Freddie & Casper

RESERVED

Location: foster

Freddie and Casper have come into our care after their mum was desperately coping with her 3rd litter of kittens as a stray. Thankfully the National RSPCA inspectors came to their rescue and they have been safely cared for in a foster home ever since. This is what his foster mum has to say about boys:

"When we first met Freddie he was very shy and hid behind the sofa a lot. Now he is a completely different kitten! He is more confident and will come seek cuddles and affection without hesitation! He likes being stroked and will happily nap on your knee but he doesn't always like being picked up. When he is sleepy, he loves having his chin and forehead scratched.  Freddie loves playing with all his toys but he especially loves pom poms and fuzzy pipe cleaners! He loves to use his scratching post and likes to watch TV too! He gets on very well with his brothers, especially Casper, who he loves to play fight with. His favourite place to sleep is in a cardboard box with a blanket. At first, Casper (also known as Caspy) was very nervous around people and spent much of his time hiding. Now he is much more comfortable around people and even enjoys being stroked and cuddled. He doesn't always like being picked up, but he will happily come and sit next to you and let you pet him, especially when he's sleepy. 

Casper's grey fur is very beautiful and he really is a gorgeous little kitten! Casper loves to nap and likes to chew his brothers' ears while they are trying to sleep. Sometimes when he is very sleepy, Casper likes to suckle on his tail, it's just the cutest thing! Casper is very vocal when he is hungry and will let you know how much he wants his dinner! He is still quite quiet around people but he is very boisterous around his brothers and likes to play fight, especially with his brother Freddie."

Because the boys have such a special bond we are looking to rehome them together. They will need a quiet home where any children are secondary school age. They will need small regular meals whilst still little so cannot be left for more than 5 hours at a time. If you can give these beautiful cherubs a quiet home for life please get in touch.
