Adopt a Cat

Do call in and see all our cats, especially some of our long stay ones. We have a variety of colours, male and female.  We have just had some kittens in, but they are still quite nervous. They need to be assessed and settled first, so please keep in touch if you're thinking of re-homing. You can call our shelters direct on 01473 727496. We will now put 'INTEREST SHOWN' on a cat that will be potentially reserved. This will indicate that the cat has been selected, and will be going to a new home pending a home check.

Meet Jessie...she was handed in as a stray and is a lovely girl. She is approximately 5 years old and is a friendly, kind cat looking for a perfect home where she can fully relax and be part of a family.

Meet Amber......she came in with Smudge, who has now been re-homed, but she actually would much rather be an only cat in her new home. Amber can be a bit grumpy and is an older cat, at least 7/8 years. When she came in, she was in need of some TLC, but is ready now to find her own home. She would need an experienced cat owner, no children and someone who can give her the room to gain confidence and make friends when she is ready! In recent weeks, Amber has really improved and just needs that patient, loving new owner! Amber really deserves a second chance, are you that owner? She doesn't like going out very much either. Please call for further details.

Meet Mowgli.......She is a friendly girl, although still a little nervous as she has only recently been brought in to our shelters. She is good with children, and would be better suited in a home as an only cat as in her previous home was attacked by the other cat living there. Mowgli has a quiet temperament and is looking for her forever home. She is at least 5 years old.


Meet Misty, the lovely tabby girl pictured, and Willow, the semi long-haired brown/black handsome boy. The photo isn't great as they have recently joined us and are both a little nervous. We will get a better one later. They are both 8 years old and are from the same litter. They have been indoor cats, but can adapt to an outside life too. Their owner couldn't take them with them as they were emigrating abroad. Both have been neutered and are good with other cats, quieter dogs and children. They have good temperaments and will make lovely additions to any homes. Misty and Willow must be re-homed together..*RESERVED*....

Meet Rodney......he is approximately 8-9 years old and has recently joined us. He has no teeth but can eat any food and is ok with other cats, dogs and children. Rodney is not helping himself at the moment as when you go to him he hisses! He's just a bit vocal and allows you to stroke him and he's fine. Rodney is still settling in, but when his confidence is back, will be a gentle lad and a great addition to any family. Although he's 8, it's not that old for a cat!! Do visit him soon.

Meet Harmony....she was returned to us as her owner was unable to keep her as his circumstances had changed. Harmony is a lovely girl, and is approximately 7-8 years old. She really deserves to find her forever home and is such a placid cat. She has lived with another cat and would make a great addition to any family. Do come and see her soon.

Meet Peter and Martin....these 2 lovely boys joined us when their owner sadly passed away. They are a lovely couple and are approximately 2 years old. They must be re-homed together and are looking for a permanent home where they can continue to enjoy each other's company.

Meet Katie...she was found straying and is a pretty dark tortoiseshell cat, who is not too impressed with the other cats also looked after here. She would prefer to be an only pet in the home and is approximately 5 years old. Katie is looking for a home where she can gain confidence and be given the space to settle in to her new surroundings. Can you give her that chance?

Cat of the Week

Meet George .......he is 7 years old and a friendly cat, who loves to explore our kennels. He has some very handsome ears and really enjoys going outside to see what's going on. George has lived with another cat and has settled in well at our shelters, but is looking for his new forever home. Do pay him a visit.
