Direct Homing Noticeboard

We deal with an enormous volume of requests to help with rehoming cats, and we can only help a limited number by bringing them into our own care. If we are unable to help ourselves, owners are welcome to advertise their cats for rehoming on this page and potential new owners can contact them directly. The cats shown here are not in branch care and the only information we know about them is shown here. Cats Protection have not seen these cats and cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information provided, especially regarding health or behaviour. Arrangements to adopt a Direct Homing cat will be made directly with the owners.

If you live in the Bournemouth area and would like to use our direct homing noticeboard, please send a photograph and short description of the cat to us at, together with the contact numbers you would like us to publish for you.

 Kitty Kitty is 12 years old and is a beautiful calico tortie. She takes the naughty tortie to its limits, but with reason and only when her treatments lapse. She unfortunately has developed an allergy to fleas in the last 2 to 3 years and has been plagued with itchy skin. It can be managed and any new owner will need to take on board that the treatment she is on must be kept up. She is having 6 monthly flea injection and monthly spot on treatments, if she does get bitten by a flea and gets too itchy she may need to have a steroid injection that helps with the itchiness. She may adapt to being an indoor cat which would reduce the risk of being bitten considerably, but she has always had access to the outside so would not want to deny her the chance to be outside if she wanted to.

Kitty does like to interact with her fosterer and seems happier when she is rubbing around her legs than a hand stroking her down her spine, fleas seem to bite on the back of the neck or the base of the tail so a hand could set off the itching whereas rubbing around you may not. She shows her pleasure when rubbing around you by purring loudly, she has in the past sat on laps for short spells but always on her terms. She is a complicated little cat but also deserving of a loving home. She does not like dogs or cats and her unpredictable temperament would rule out children.

Please contact Blandford and Sturminster Newton Cats Protection on 01258 858644 if you have just the home for Kitty.

  Tatty's family writes:

"Tatty is a friendly and intelligent black female cat, semi long-haired about 5/6 years old. A delightful and affectionate pet, We took her in knowing her history and she settled well. BUT she has terrorised our two older cats, to the point where they have to be kept completely separate. So we reluctantly need to find Tatty a new home. She has always lived on the Forest so has *no traffic experience*. She is spayed and micro-chipped. Easy to feed (greedy!) Suited to an adult household or one with older children, as she is playful and might over-react with the very young. She might be all right with sober, older dogs but dog-free would be easier for her. We will supply bed, toys, a supply of food and dishes, cat flap for installation (if you don't have one) and anything else that will help her settle. Also, if things didn't work out, we would take her back – and we'll hate to see her go, but our cat is suffering badly from Tatty's intimidation!

We would want to visit any offered home, and we would request that whoever takes her makes a donation to a local pet charity of their choice. But once she settles, we hope you will find her as delightful as we do!" 

Please email if you have the purrfect home for Tatty

 Joey Joey is a very cute, active, playful and a bit mischievous 4 month old. Small children adore him and he loves playing with them. He is currently the only pet in the household, but has interacted with other cats visiting his garden. Joey loves to curl up on a lap when he's tired himself out. He's looking for a new home as he has more energy than his current senior human companion!

If you have just the place for Joey, please contact Jackie on 07779 139926
