Cats for Homing 19/07/19

Tiggs & Toffee

We are looking for a loving home for two female, ‘older’ cats.

Tiggs in an 11 year old who is still young at heart. She is very playful and enjoys being outside and chasing everything that moves. She is affectionate but only on her terms, although she will have a cuddle with you in bed at night. She’s not overly keen on being picked up(but neither am I!).

Toffee is 9 years old and also enjoys being outside but prefers to stay close to the house and sunbathe. She is very affectionate, demands cuddles and follows you around like a shadow.

They have lived together for most of their lives so ideally we would like to keep them together. They are both spayed, vaccinated and in good health.

They aren’t at the Ark right now so if you’d like to make an appointment to meet them then please send us a message.

(Toffee has the more gingery face)

Onyx (reserved)

Poor Onyx was rescued from the streets in a very sorry state. He was resued by a lovely lady, and taken to a different rescue. Sadly, he tested positive for FIV, so was going to be euthanised. The lady thought he deserved to live out his days in a nice home, so has taken him back in until we can find a permanent home for him.


The abscesses on his head have been treated and healed up well, as you can see he looks much better! He is a lovely natured cat that likes nothing better than a warm knee and lots of strokes.

Due to being FIV+, Onyx will need to be an indoor only cat in a home with no other cats or young children.


Ulla is a 12-13 year old cat who had to be rehomed as she was becoming terrified of the toddler in the house. She had resorted to living in the kitchen which was the only room the toddler couldn't get into. She is a sweet, friendly cat but would do best in a quiet home.

Ulla has a thyroid condition requiring daily medication.

She is currently being cared for at a foster home in Gosforth

Samson/ George

 George or Samson as he is known has had a couple of different homes as a stray. We are unsure of his age, he wandered the streets of Whickham for at least 6 years but we think he is at least 10 years old. He was already neutered when he arrived but doesn't look it thanks to his big tom cat cheeks!

He has had dental work done whilst in our care, and he had an operation on his eyes which are healing very well, he needs one more check up at the vets but he should hopefully be ready for adoption after that.


Bruno ended up with us when some of our volunteers were trying to trap a different cat. He was in such a sorry state that we had to admit him after he set the trap off getting some food.

He has had treatment for cat flu, has been neutered & microchipped, and has also had some dental work done.

It is going to be tricky to find the right home for Bruno as he was found outside, he will need outdoor access, but has tested positive for FIV and FeLV, so should not mix with other cats. Somewhere with a cat-proof garden/ yard, or an enclosed catio would be ideal!

He looks tough, but he is a big softie!

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!
