Cats of the Month

2017

JULY & AUGUST: ZIGGY & OREO    
Oreo and Ziggy have a new home    
Ziggy (left) and Oreo (right) are brother and sister, born in June 2016, and came to us with two other brothers and Oreo's three kittens. Oreo and Ziggy cared for the kittens together, and bonded well, so we wanted them to be rehomed together. Happily, they have now gone to a new home together.    
APRIL: MAX MAY: MICKEY JUNE: MONTY
Max is now a happy boy! Mickey is in his forever home  Monty has gone to a new home 
 Max ended April still unhomed, but early in May, he was reserved, and has now gone to a loving home Mickey cames from a good home, but his sister bullied him so much that he was afraid to come into the house! He was initially timid and frightened, but never aggressive, and gained some confidence, becoming more and more affectionate.  He went to live with a lovely family who will help to build his confidence,  and give him lots of fussing.   Beautiful Monty is one quarter Norwegian Forest so large and long-haired. He had lived indoors all his four years, with other animals. He needed to be homed somewhere fairly quiet and, when he was ready, to be introduced slowly to outdoors, with the ability to run back inside if he wants to! He is really a relaxed and affectionate cat. He has gone to a new home with a garden.
JANUARY: MARTY  FEBRUARY: TIGGY MARCH: LOLA
Marty has a happy home Tiggy  is in a happy home now   
Marty had broken her left hind leg and it had to be amputated, but she didn't let being a tripod cat stop her finding a happy, loving home! Tiggy, a sweet, gentle, 7 year old, has found a new home where he can relax and enjoy the garden!.  Lola went through a bad time in her 2 years, being bullied by another cat, having two litters and then getting an infection after being spayed. She is now very happy to be the centre of attention in her new home with a couple who love her to bits!

 Indie has gone to a loving home  Chloe has her forever home
After over 5 months with us, following 2 months in a cattery, Sootywas chosen by a single lady and her 16 year-old cat and it has turned out to be the perfect home for him Indie has gone to a loving new home where she has lots of company but no small children.   Chloe has a lovely new home where she is an indoor cat, and has settled well.
AUGUST: BONNIE  MAY - JULY: MICKEY  APRIL: CHLOE
Bonnie lives with a disabled lady who dotes on her  Mickey is now Archie and enjoying his new life Chloe has gone to her new home
Bonnie was spotted by a disabled lady who rehomed her and is thrilled with her!    After a few months as our feature cat, timid Mickey has found a happy home and a new name with an older gentleman.  After a couple of days hiding under the sofa, he has emerged and now really enjoys lots of  cuddles and petting.  It looked as though Chloe would have to hang on through May as well to find her new home, but early in the month, a kind older gentleman decided she was the cat for him.
MARCH: ALFIE   FEBRUARY: TILLEY   JANUARY: TIGGER and SQUIDGE
Alfie was adopted by his fosterer's cat sitter!
 Tilly found a lovely new home in February
Squidge and Tigger
Alfie, a lovely tuxedo cat, came to us just before Christmas as his owner developed allergies. Although he is a quiet cat - except at mealtimes! - he does love company. He doesn't like surprises but otherwise really relaxed and content in himself. Alfie's fosterer went on holiday, leaving him in the care of a friend - who fell in love with him, and has adopted him!   She is a sweet, affectionate cat, 8 years old, who was not enjoying being in a pen. She was homed by us as a kitten and was very happy until the couple had children. She couldn’t cope with a family and moved out of the house to live in the garden. She found just what she needed: a quiet home without small children.  These two were only cats of the month for a week before they got adopted! Three year old brothers, they were looking for a new home because their owner moved and couldn't take them with her. They were homed together, which was great for them because they had always lived together.

Rose aka 'Fur and Purr', born 2012, is a gentle but confident cat that loves company. She also loves a fuss and is very affectionate. Rose moved in early January 2016 to live with an experienced cat owner who wanted and affectionate cat.  Her new owner is around during the day for cuddles and fussing.  Rose can also play in the garden, which backs onto fields. Lilly, who was November's cat, was rehomed to small village with a small family with a toddler, two fireplaces to curl up in front of and a lovely big garden.  They fell in love with her as soon as they met her, and she went to her new home just before Christmas Caspar who was August's cat, and FIV positive, went to a lovely new home at the end of November.
