Ellie came to us when her owner sadly suddenly passed away. She is 8/9 years old, has had outdoor access, is neutered and microchipped.
She would suit a quiet home without children or other animals, so would be good in an older persons home.
Ellie will purr as soon as you venture near her!
She is missing a lot of fur on her rear end, which she has seen the vet for. This is probably due to a flea allergy, so with regular flea treatment this should grow back.
Mr Chips came to us as a stray that a kind family started feeding, however, their existing cat wasn't very happy with him being around, and he had started limping.
He has now had veterinary treatment and has been neutered. He has also tested negative for FeLV and FIV.
When Mr Chips first arrived, he would sometimes hiss and swipe at the volunteers here, but has now calmed down, especially since he has been neutered. He may never be a lap cat, or enjoy being picked up, but he may be OK with other cats.
He will need an experienced owner without young children, but with some time and patience.
Fluffy came to us when it was made aware to us that her and her mother were being given 'free to a good home' on a facebook site.
She is very shy and timid at first, but once she begins to trust you she loves nothing better than being fussed over!
She is about a year old, is fine with the small dog in her foster home, however she is wary of other cats. Fluffy would be best suited to a home as the only cat, or with a friendly, calm older cat.
She has now been spayed, and is currently in a foster home in the Newcastle area.
Bella is about 7-8 months old and has had a hard start in life. Apparently she was born outside, a kind lady started feeding her and slowly gaining her trust. It took a few months for her to be able to catch her and bring her into the rescue.
Bella can be quite skittish and a little bit temperamental. Ideally we would like to place her within a foster home to see more of what her personality is like. However, she has now been spayed and microchipped, so could potentially go to her new home if we feel it is the right one for her.
She will eventually need outdoor access in her forever home, would be best placed in a home without children, but she may be OK with other cats.
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!
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!
