Long-term residents need a closer look

12 March 2018
Long-term residents need 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. 

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):

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. 

Keri is a much sought after lapcat. She loves a head tickle and toy mice are a constant source of great entertainment. A home with a garden, with the chance to come across a real one, would be marvellous! With the right introductions, Keri could live happily with children.

Bobby is still a little shy and finding it hard to adjust to life at the NCAC. She spends a lot of time in her back run, so people don't find it easy to see her. She will need a quiet home that can offer her love, time and patience, so she can fully settle into her new life.
