CAT OF THE MONTH

 

 

 

 

Deandra

CAT FRIENDLY

Watch a video of Deandra here!

Location: cattery

Black is always in style and our Deandra knows how to work the cat walk. She’s a 2 year old cat looking for a fresh start after being turned out into the garden when her owner vacated the property. Deandra and her 2 companions were a little dishevelled when they were collected but after living at the end of a garden for several weeks it's hardly any surprise. After a few weeks TLC they are unrecognisable. Deandra has been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped so is all ready to go!


It only took 1 week for Deandra to transform from a shy and worried looking lady to a friendly cat who offers all who visit her a warm welcome. Once you’ve introduced yourself to her with a chin rub and ear tickle she’ll  soon start nuzzling into your hand and toppling herself over trying to get close to you. It’s easy to keep Deandra happy, a fleece blanket in a cosy corner and a cuddle every now again will see her right. What makes Deandra extra special is her front feet, which are quite a funny shape! Rather than having individual toe pads she has two split pads which look more like bird feet than cat paws but it doesn't cause her any harm.


Deandra has simple needs; food, fuss, and a cosy bed for naps and a safe garden for day time play time. She can be a greedy girl and tends to wolf her food down a little too quickly but puzzle feeders and small, frequent portions keep his gutsiness in check. She would be suitable to live in a home with children of secondary school age and will no doubt need a peaceful week settling in before she shows her face in her new home. She has lived with other cats before so may be happy sharing with a friendly feline.

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.

Bradford

Location: cattery

Our boy Bradford first arrived in our care at the start of February but thanks to his Houdini like skills, and daredevil bravery, he escaped from his foster home through a first floor window. Thankfully he was found because of his microchip and is now safely installed in our cattery whilst he waits for a kindred spirit thrill seeker to adopt him!


Bradford is about 3 years old and was a long term stray before being found with a  nasty bite wound on his front paw. He received medical treatment along with neuter, vaccine and microchip and now he’s all ready for his next adventure.


Bradford is a confident cat who enjoys human company and home comforts just as much as fresh air and freedom. He’s quick to greet newcomers and will rub around for strokes and chin tickles whilst he decides if your knee is adequate for him to sit on. He can be cheeky, once he’s had enough he’s quick to offer a warning nibble but within 30 seconds he’s back for another stroke and thankfully he never hurts you. He enjoys his food, especially getting it all over his nose and is a clean and happy little chappy.


Bradford is looking for someone with as much character as he has, to share tales of past adventures whilst having enough safe outdoor space to have new ones. He would be best suited to a home with children of secondary school age or above.

If you would like to adopt Bradford contact us today!

Marley

CAT FRIENDLY

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 may be able to live with a friendly feline who is used to living with cats.

Flossy

CAT FRIENDLY

RESERVED

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.

Dennis

CAT FRIENDLY

Location: cattery

Who wouldn’t want this dark chocolate coloured hunk in their home!? Meet Dennis, a 2 year old cat looking for a fresh start after being turned out into the garden when his owner vacated the property. Dennis and his 2 companions were a little dishevelled when they were collected but that's hardly surprising given they had lived outdoors for several weeks. But after a few weeks TLC they are looking much better. Dennis has been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped so is all ready to go!


It only took 1 week for Dennis to transform from a quiet and shy lad into a friendly and attention seeking heart throb. As soon as you enter his pen he’ll slink out of his open and start rubbing around your legs, nuzzling against your hand and politely asking for a fuss. He’s stolen the hearts of our volunteers and one has even requested his name is changed to Mr Darcy as he’s so dark and handsome.


Dennis has simple needs; food, fuss, and a cosy bed for naps and a safe garden for day time play time. He is a greedy chap and tends to wolf his food down a little too quickly but puzzle feeders and small, frequent portions keep his gutsiness in check. He would be suitable to live in a home with children of secondary school age and will no doubt need a peaceful week settling in before he shows his face in his new home. Dennis has lived with other cats before so may be willing to share with a friendly feline.

Liquorice

GOLDEN OLDIE

Location: foster care

Meet our lovely lady Liquorice who is looking for a comfy lap to lie on. She's a vintage black cat of around 10 years old who gives the best cuddles.


Liquorice was abandoned by her owner when they moved out of their home. She was a little reserved when she first came into our care, but in a short amount of time she was jumping on our laps for fuss and giving us smooches. Liquorice has had full dental treatment at the vets, during which 7 teeth were removed. She's now much happier and can chomp on wet and dry food with ease.


Liquorice enjoys life's simple pleasures - a snooze, a cuddle and a good meal. She is a chatty girl who is always pleased to see you (especially when there is food involved.) She loves to cuddle up with you and will snooze away the evening on your lap, purring with contentment. She is also happy in her own company and so would fit in with a new owner who works full time. Despite her more mature years she still has a playful side and can often be heard indulging in a good kick about with a plastic ball with a bell inside.


Liquorice is great company, and as she is not keen on other cats, would like to have her humans to herself. She's an easy going girl who would love to take care of you. A quiet home with adults and/or teenage children would suit her best.

If you would like to adopt Liquorice contact us today!

Tanya

FAMILY FRIENDLY

Location: cattery

Tanya is a beautiful one year old cat who has come into our care after her owner was no longer able to look after her due to a change in personal circumstances.


Tanya has swiftly one everyone over in the cattery! She is a delightfully dinky cat with a gorgeous sheen on her coat. She loves to be up high, so make sure you place a bed for on top of your wardrobe, oh and be prepared for her to climb your shoulders to sit on them! Thankfully her parrot-like behaviour is super endearing due to her petite size, but how you are supposed to get anything useful done with a cat on your back!


Tanya is very playful but also loves to sit on your knee. She adores human company and will be an attentive and loving companion suitable to live with a family. Tanya will need to go out to play once settled in so a safe outdoor space is a must.

If you would like to adopt Tanya contact us today!
