Long-term residents in need of a closer look

29 November 2018
Long-term residents in need of a closer look As much as we love caring for cats, it makes us happiest to see them rehomed with a loving family who can give them love and attention.

There is a new home for every cat, but some stay in care longer than others. They can be overlooked for many reasons: age, ailments or simply the wrong colour.

None of these should be enough for a cat to miss out on a new home with the right family. But they can be the difference between a loving cat curling up on a warm lap or they live out their years in a care cabin.

At the National Cat Adoption Centre, we provide help and advice about rehoming our cats, working to overcome the concerns that lead to some of our longer residents being overlooked.

We believe that there is a home out there for every cat. A family for every puss. 

Take a look at these long-term resident cats and consider if you could share your home with them
Malucie, aged 12, has been at the NCAC for more than a month.

She is a sweet loving girl who used to love cuddling up to her owner on the sofa. She is chatty and loves to have her head rubbed.

Malucie would prefer to be the only pet in an adult-only home, ideally with a garden for the occasional mooch. If you are looking for a sofa buddy, then please come and meet darling Malucie.

Alfie is eight years old and has been here more than one month. Chasing string is his perfect thing, but he also loves a cuddle with anybody who is up for it. 

Alfie's previous owner described him as super affectionate, and he is that. 

Alfie could possibly leave with a calm dog in his new home but has to put his foot down and insist on being the only cat.

Honey is 10 years old and has been with us more than one month. She is the sweetest, most delicate little cat. She washes her face in the gentlest of ways, with little butterfly strokes. It’s the cutest thing to watch. 

Her previous owner said she would love to curl up on the bed. She is super clever and has worked out all her food puzzles.

Honey is looking for a calm quiet home, so no young children or other pets and she will be a very happy pussy cat.
