Cats from testing facility ready to find homes

Cats from testing facility ready to find homes Four felines from a former animal testing facility are now ready to be rehomed. The final four, from a total of 85 which came to Cats Protection’s Belfast Adoption Centre, have been named Sasha (pictured), Fi-Fi, Leeloo and Arwen.

The Adoption Centre has been working with the ISPCA since December 2016 to rehome the large group of cats, which came from a former testing facility. As the cats have never been outdoors, they will require indoor-only homes but staff are happy to discuss this on an individual basis with prospective adopters. The cats, that are all between six and eight years of age, would make a great addition to any home.

Cats Protection’s Northern Ireland Operations Manager, Siobhan McHaffie said: “to have rehomed 81 cats in such a relatively short space of time is remarkable and a credit to our team here. Although it is quite daunting when we were originally approached to help, it’s been wonderful to see the public react in such a positive way and rehome these cats so quickly. We know there are prospective owners out there who will find wonderful homes for our final four felines.”

Anyone interested in rehoming one of these cats should contact the Belfast Adoption Centre on 02890 480 202 or
