Could you adopt SQUEAK?

Squeak needs an owner who can let him learn trust at his own paceSqueak came to us very timid and shy, from a multicat household. We think he would settle best in a household with an experienced owner and another, friendly cat, but no dogs or children. At first, he flinched every time somebody petted him, but he is slowly getting more used to it, and once he trusts someone, he does enjoy it. His special person will need to be very patient and gentle, and let him take his time getting to trust them. He is a very soft and gentle cat, and has a funny trilling purr. He loves his toys, and his dinner! He needs a very special person to trust and love ... is that you?


In February, we rehomed 4 cats

Established in 1988, we work through a network of fosterers, who provide temporary accommodation for needy cats until safe, loving, permanent homes can be found for them. The fosterers are supported by other volunteers who concentrate on fund-raising.

Cats Protection asks adopters for an adoption fee of £70 when offering a home to a cat or kitten as they are all vet-checked, micro-chipped and receive their first vaccinations before going to their new homes and, if old enough, are neutered. If you feel able to make a donation on top of that fee, it would, of course, be gratefully received. We know times are hard so thank you if you decide to give a loving home to one of our cats
