Golden Oldies

We hope that our older cats (12 years plus) do not get over looked, as they still have so much joy to bring to a new family. There are many benefits to owning an older feline, they already come with manners, are more calm, the days of them wandering will be in the past and the relationship between human and cat can be much stronger. If required, Cats Protection will help with medical costs for any conditions these older cats may have.

Meet PHOEBE...this is what her fosterer has to say..."Phoebe is adorable, she loves a good chin scratch, loves a cuddle, is a little chatter box at times (mostly during feeding time). She is rather chunky, but a girl does turn to food in times of stress! She’s one of the sweetest cats we’ve had! She does like her own company at times, where she’ll take herself off to sleep for hours on end in another room. She does that more than being a lap cat. She loves to get involved with what you’re doing eg yoga or sorting through paper work. She’s got a lovely temperament with an occasional burst of excitement, where she may run up and down the stairs quickly or attack a mouse toy. But then that will be it for a day or two!!"

Phoebe is 12 years old and has been a much loved cat but now her owner is moving to a place where Phoebe would not be able to go outside and her owner does not want to restrict her to life as an indoor cat. She needs a quiet, settled home, well away from busy roads. Ideally she would prefer to be the only cat but may settle with a quiet, older male cat as long as there is room for them to have their own space when they choose. Phoebe has never lived with a dog but she may accept a quiet older cat friendly dog. But it would depend very much on the dog.

Phone Gill on 01749 850660 if you could be the very lucky person to give Phoebe a new home.

Meet DOTTY...she is a very healthy 15 year old who would love a lap to sit on and somebody to love her. She came into our care after her owner died and had a few dry patches of skin, which have now cleared up with flea treatment and steroid tablets. Tests have shown she is in excellent condition and she has the most super soft fur. She is a very gentle cat, who enjoys attention which often results in her dribbling with contentment. A quiet home is preferred for this elderly cat to live out her twilight years.

If you would like to offer Dotty a home then please call Janet on 01749 880545.
