Long-term residents need a closer look
06 September 2018
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. Here are some of the cats who have been with us for far too long.
Take a look at these long-term resident cats and consider if you could share your home with them (further information and images can be found via the links):Minstrel
has been here for 128 days. Minstrel is a shy two-years-old boy who prefers to spend most of his time at the back of his pen, getting away from the hussle and bussle of the centre.
Minstrel has a dedicated volunteer who sits with him daily, has built his confidence, and is starting to build a strong bond with him.
Minstrel loves chin scratches, head strokes and even nudges for more attention. Minstrel has only lived indoors, so probably finds life here a bit of a struggle. We are looking for a quiet, adult only home for Minstrel.Smudge
came to the NCAC after being found roaming the streets with no home to call his own. He is still full of vim and vigour at 10-years-old. Smudge loves to play and chase his catnip toys! He is very inquisitive, and loves watching all the goings on at the centre.Please get in touch. These cats need another chance at a better life. Tinksy
is an independent eight-year-old lady who has been at the centre 120 days.
As a one person cat who likes peace and quiet, life at the centre is a bit tricky for her. She likes a little fuss and to play with a fishing rod toy, and we're told that she used to sleep at the foot of her old owner's bed.Check our features pages for information on how to care for cats like these.
