Sapphire & Buttons

Sapphire and Buttons came to us when their elderly owner was unable to look after them any more.

Sapphire is a 15 year old, female Birman and Buttons is a 7 year old Persian, both have been indoor cats, and need to be rehomed together. They are both timid, Buttons more so than Sapphire, so will need a patient and understanding new owner with a quiet home and no other pets (as we think they were slightly bullied by a third cat in their previous home)

Sonia Redpath, a master groomer has given them both nail clips and a thorough groom. Buttons especially had developed matted fur, but Sonia managed to tease out a lot of the tangles, having to shave only the very worst parts.

Any potential owners will be required to demonstrate specialist knowledge and care for each breed.

A home check will be carried out prior to agreeing to reserve/ home the cats, and at least one post homing check.

These cats are currently at a fosterers, so a visit will need to be arranged.


Chester came to us as a stray, the lady that noticed him had found he was becoming more and more bedraggled.

Chester has been seen by Moorview vets and needs dental work, as well as a thorough examination of his tail which has been injured somehow. 

He is a vocal, friendly cat, but since admission has swiped a couple of times. Due to this, he would not be suitable to be rehomed with young children, although this behaviour could just be down to pain from his tail/ teeth.

As he was a stray, he will need outdoor access and we are unsure of his age. Chester has now been neutered and microchipped.

Daisy (Reserved)

Daisy is an 8 year old girl looking for a new home. She is quite shy at first, but friendly and has been an indoor cat.

She was brought in with other cats, but may be best homed on her own. She has been spayed and would be best suited to a quiet home.

Daisy has had a health check from Moorview vets, and no issues were detected, so she is available for homing now.

Feral cats

We are always looking for home offers for feral cats. Feral cats aren't just strays, but cats that have had little or no human contact. We generally trap them from around the city and have them neutered and ear tipped. This isn't cruel, it just indicates that the cat has already been trapped and neutered.

Rather than putting them back on the streets we find these cats suitable homes, usually on farms/ stables/ smallholdings, where they can happily live outside, but have someone give a daily supply of fresh food & water and somewhere sheltered to sleep.

If you can offer a place for a feral cat please contact us!
