SPONSOR A CAT

If you are currently unable to adopt a cat or are looking for an ideal gift for a loved one then perhaps you would like to sponsor one of these long-term residents? For £15 you can sponsor one of our very deserving cats for a year, contributing towards his or her meals and medical expenses. You will receive a welcome pack with a photo of the cat you are sponsoring and regular updates on how he or she is getting on throughout the year.

A picture and description of each of our sponsored cats can be found below. If you would like to sponsor one (or more!) of them then please get in contact with the branch. You can do this via the form on the 'Contact Us' webpage or give us a phone on 0845 371 2722 and leave a message on the answerphone asking for a 'sponsor a cat' application form (don't forget to tell us your name and address if you phone). We will post a sponsorship form out to you as soon as we can. Alternatively, you can download the Sponsor a Cat form, print it out, fill it in and post it to our address (see the 'Contact Us' webpage again for this). Thanks.

FREDDIE - 6 years old


















Freddie who suffers from Feline, Lower Urinary Tract Disease (FLUTD) is doing well and is on a special diet to help keep the condition under control.
 
He likes to sit on the hearth, must enjoy the heat. He is a very gentle boy; he loves to sit at the sink, in the hope of catching a drip from the tap or just sitting watching the world go by. He likes to hang out down at the school in the hope that someone will stop and speak to him, and most people do.

Update from long term fosterer:

He likes to come for a walk round the block with our dog Lucy too. As you can see from the last photo he did not want his photo taken, he was being camera shy.


TALA - 12 years old

















Tala came into care with his brother Simba due to an allergy in the family. Tala is a Singapura and Simba was a Blue Abyssinian. On first medical examination of the cats, both had severe medical problems and sadly Simba lost his fight in November 2010. Tala has a significant heart murmur.

Update from long term fosterer:

Tala is in fine health these days. He doesn't need to have his heart checked anymore as the Vets think he's had his murmur since birth. So even though it's a significant murmur it's not likely to change. Other than that he spends most of his time chatting - he's very, very, very talkative. We have a working coal fire in our flat, the second we light the coal he appears right in front of it and doesn't move until it goes out.


LOUISE - 6 years old









Louise came into contact with her long term fosterer in Aug 2004, she came from the quarry in Kirkintilloch, she was brought in with her sister but she was hit by a car the following Dec. She's a great wee girl, she rubs on my legs when I'm putting her dinner out but soon as I touch her she backs off.

Update from long term fosterer:

Louise is doing well gets on great with Missie and Terri but my other boy Tupac is not too keen on her never has been in the 9 years I've had her don't think he'll come round now


PADDY - 9 years old









This is Paddy, a 9 year old semi feral, who lives in our long terms fosterer’s home and has done since he was a kitten. He was a feral kitten born in Drumchapel. He will not let us pet him, he is a very independent wee cat and can be very bossy when he likes, but he does gets on we'll with the other cats. His two brothers were homed but he decided it was not for him and came back into care. He loves the garden and he is the mouse catcher of the group, I can pet him when he is in the mood but this is not often.

Update from long term fosterer:

Paddy, it doing well had his coat stripped later summer for winter coming in and looking very handsome, needs that done as he will not let me brush him,He loves the outdoors and only comes in when it's very wet & windy.


WILLOW - 11 years old









Willow is another one of the ferals. She is a very shy girl, was born as a feral and not found until she was nearly 4months old. She is used to being on her own, and she is very shy, she came into care with two other siblings who we managed to tame and home. However for some reason Willow did not want that contact. She is a healthy wee thing and for her age doing well.

Update from long term fosterer:

Willow, is getting on a wee bit now and I think she is feeling the cold a lot more, in the last few weeks she has actually started coming in early at night and picking her hot spot for the night, even going for a radiator bed which means she has a kitten sleeping with her.


SOX - 11 years old









He is a huge big boy but not people friendly at all ... but loves living with the other cats. His brother was homed but he did not like the idea and came back into care. He loves the garden and coming in the cat flap when he thinks you are not looking.

Update from long term fosterer:

Sox, he is still just your typical big semi- feral boy, you forget sometimes he is here, when everyone is getting dinner at night he may come in to see what's doing, but normally he just spends his time in the summer house, well there is 3 heated beds out there to, so no need to come in.


GIZZY - 9 years old









We got Gizzy and his brother Ozzy in January 2004 when they were about 12 weeks old. Both were feral, totally unfriendly, manic and semi wild. We persevered with them both and Ozzy was homed. Try as we might, we couldn't get Gizzy to come round, and, eventually we reached a compromise - he tolerated us – just!

Update from long term fosterer:

I still get frightened by my own shadow, (as well as the wind / weather / other cats / dogs / Mum and Dad / and most other things as well!) I am getting a bit braver and even risk a clap and tickle on Mum’s lap….but not Dad’s!....he’s too fierce for me, but I do let him have an odd clap at me when I’m sidling past him, but only when it suits me!
