Cats for Homing

These two little cuties are Piper and Ellie, 8 weeks old and looking for their forever home. 

They are long haired and absolutely adorable. We would like them to be homed together as they 

are definitely a wee tight knit pair.

They are full of fun and mischief, very affectionate loving their cuddles and lots of attention.

They truly are two of the most gorgeous kittens and need a home that will give them love, affection and

security.

If you feel you can take on these bundles of joy please give me a call on 07801352961 or email [email protected]

I look forward to hearing from you.

PARKER AND FLOYD. Hello Floyd here. I am a beautiful grey and white 10 year old boy and this is my twin bother Parker, a real handsome dude with a black and white bib. We are looking for a new home together due to a relationship breakdown and our current owner working away a lot. We are absolutely adorable and love to be cuddled. In fact, Parker is so sociable he often goes out to see various dogs walking down the street, much to their confusion! We have been together since we were born and cannot live without each other, so are looking for a home together. We are used to going on adventures outside so are looking for an inside home with access to outside. We are both neutered and our worming and fleaing treatment is up to date. We currently live with two dogs. We are absolutely gorgeous cats with loads of characters. If you think you can offer us that purrfect special forever home, then you will not be disappointed. We are both currently living in Cumbernauld.  The contact number is Diane on  07964 747-379 or e-mail[email protected]

Kitty - I am a very friendly, lovely, young, mackeral grey/fawn, tabby lady cat of about 1-2 yrs old. My worming and de-fleaing are up to date and I am neutered. I am not completely at one with a dog but could put up with one and the same goes for another cat. I would be OK with children of 5+. I have been found straying and was being fed by a kind lady, but am now looking for a new loving home to call my own, as she cannot keep me. I am fine being in a house environment, but would need access to the safe outdoors eventually, to come and go as I please. A cat flap would be great if you have one, but not essential. I am staying in Glespin just now. If you think you can give this lovely pussycat that special loving home for life, then you certainly will not be disappointed, as she would make a fabulous addition to any family. Please contact Diane on 07964747379 or e-mail her on [email protected] to progress this for Kitty.


Socks - We are looking for a new home for black and white, male semi-feral cat; Socks. He’s about 2-3 years and he’s up to date with his worming, fleaing and he’s been neutered. Socks is looking for an outside stable, farm or small holding type home, with plenty of shelter and food. Socks is a bit scared, but does not mind his head or chin stroked. He’s just looking for a safe haven to call his own, to come and go as he pleases. He does not seems bothered by other cats. In fact we have many cats such as this, some feral, some semi feral, in desperate need of suitable outside type homes in the Lanarkshire and Falkirk areas. But this is Socks anyway and if you are interested in Socks or indeed another feral or semi feral cat, please e-mail Karyn at vidler[email protected]


Feral Cats Plea!! Toyah’s life started in the worst possible way for a kitten when she was born into an established cat colony in an industrial area of Fakirk. In one way, she was probably quite fortunate for a “colony cat” as she survived those crucial early months of life to grow into an adult. Then her good luck ended as she became pregnant several times, giving birth to her kittens outside, probably in some dark corner where she thought they would be safe. In these situations, cats like Toyah are ill prepared for motherhood as there is seldom a regular supply of food to nourish them and their unborn kittens. Once the little ones were born, she would have to stay with them to protect them from predators and other dangers, whilst all the time desperately needing food and liquid to enable her to feed them. Then, one day, Toyah’s luck changed. As part of an on-going programme of TNR, she was trapped and taken into care to await the arrival of her kittens. It’s fair to say that, at first, she was not at all happy with this situation. For a feral cat, it can be stressful to be away from the familiarity of the colony and to have humans nearby. However, in Toyah’s case, her love of a good meal proved stronger than her natural desire to escape, and so she spent the last couple of weeks of her pregnancy eating, resting, eating, grooming and eating some more! Fortunately, this meant that when her five kittens were born, all of them were strong and healthy, and she was well prepared to care for them. After eight weeks had passed, these playful, socialised kittens went off to their forever homes, safe from a life in the colony, and their mother was taken to be spayed. So, what happened next? Did Toyah’s luck run out? Well, she continues to be a very lucky puss because she has gone off to live in a lovely new stable home, with plenty food and shelter, far from the terrible environment she was used to. From now on, she will never go hungry, never face the danger of heavy machinery and, most importantly, will never have to give birth and care for kittens outside. Unfortunately, there are many cats like Toyah out there; living in dangerous environments, depending on the kindness of strangers for a plate of food, hiding from people who would harm them, sleeping in cold uncomfortable dens, giving birth to kittens outside. We need many more people to help offer feral cats like Toyah a permanent safe environment, such as on stables/farms.
