CAN YOU OFFER THESE CATS A HOME?
|Please think about offering a home to one of our older cats. These cats are so often overlooked.|
There are several benefits to adopting an older cat. Unlike a kitten or very young cat the personality is already formed so you know exactly what you are getting. Older cats are usually calmer, steadier and less demanding than younger cats. Usually all they need to keep them happy and contented is food, warmth and love. Very many cats now live until their late teens and an increasing number into their twenties. They make wonderful companions, particularly for an older person, yet they are so often overlooked and spend many months waiting for a new home.
We have recently taken into our care several older cats .Please take time to read about them and don't just dismiss them out of hand because they are older.
RUSTY - ATTRACTIVE BRINDLE TORTIE
Rusty was living with her elderly owner who was over 90 years of age. This lady recently passed away so Rusty has been left homeless.
Rusty is about 14 years old. She is a brindle tortie and is very friendly when you get to know her.
One of our volunteers was feeding her whilst her owner was in hospital. She tells us:-
When I first started to feed Rusty she was a little shy so I restricted my contact to a few gentle strokes. A month later and what a difference! She now turns up to greet me and raises herself against my leg to rub against me. if I sit down she's immediately on my lap and, after getting herself settled and quite a few head rubs, she curls up for a cat nap. She also often lies by my side. She's not a very demanding cat - food, company and access to the outside are rewarded with a great amount of love, companionship and affection. She is an ideal cat for a quiet household.
Rusty is now in our care waiting for a loving new home of her own.
ANCHO - CHOCOLATE BRITISH SHORTHAIR
ZUKI - AFFECTIONATE CONTENTED GIRL
Zuki is a lovely, black cat . She is 10 years old. Her owners have lost their home so poor Zuki has also lost her home. She is a very undemanding cat who is happy both indoors and outdoors. All she is asks is some affection and regular food and water.
SANDY - VERY AFFECTIONATE AND PLAYFUL
Sandy is thought to be a Burmese. He needs a new home because his owner is going abroad to work. He is very good humoured and affectionate and very playful. He is possibly about 11 years old. When his owner goes home he follows her around patting her ankles and playing pretend ambush, very much like a big kitten.
Sandy is a very handsome cat. He enjoys pouncing on his favourite toy.
KANDI - AS SWEET AS CANDY
Kandy is 14 years old but she doesn't know it - she has you believing she is half her age. She is named Kandi because she is as sweet as ..... (candy). Kandi is so adorable and she loves children. Her carer says she reckons if she had on a dress and a pair of pumps she would be off playing with the kids and she chats and chats and chats!
