In these challenging times with the developing situation with coronavirus (COVID-19), Cats Protection is taking extra precautions to keep our cats, volunteers, employees and the public safe and continue to provide high levels of care for the cats in our centres and branches as well as helpful welfare advice to cat owners.

For this reason, we are only homing cats from selected centres. To find out more, click here

Buster & LaceyMere & Gillingham

Buster and Lacey are a beautiful pair of cats, and have been through a lot in their very short life. Lacey would not have been a year old when she became pregnant with her two kittens Tabitha and Pearl. Once the kittens were old enough to fend for themselves Buster and Lacey were allowed to roam the streets where Lacey became pregnant again and her first litter not even 6 months! This does illustrate how important it is to neuter cats - if Lacey was out and about now she would probably become pregnant yet again with a third litter and only just coming up two.

The Branch recognized early on that there was a real connection between the two cats - and fortunately the pen they shared was divided in two so that the cats could always see or be aware of the other. Now that the second litter of kittens is ready for rehoming (and the tabbies already have a home) we can allow Lacey some respite from motherhood, have her neutered and then allow her to join her soulmate Buster. This probably seems like "romantic tosh", but in all the time of being involved with caring for cats in the Branch it is very rare that a pair of cats have demonstrated their feelings for one another. Therefore, it will come as no surprise that the Branch wish to rehome Buster and Lacey as a pair. Lacey needs respite and also needs to be neutered, but the cats will be ready for rehoming in the next couple of months. Ideally the cats should go to a family with older children or to a retired couple who have the time to give them lots of love and attention.
