Listing of current cats and kittens in need of their forever homes..............

Pip kitten – Pip is very friendly, lovable and adventurous wee kitten. She is a black with white, short haired, female kittie of about 11 weeks old and she loves to play. She would be great with another cat for a companion. As she has been used to other cats, I don’t think she would mind a dog either. Nor children of 5+. She is looking for an indoor loving home with safe access to the outsides eventually to come and go, as she pleases when the time comes. Her de-fleaing and worming treatments are up-to-date, she is micro chipped and has started her first part of her vaccinations. If you think you can offer darling wee cheeky Pip, a loving permanent, forever home, please contact Karyn in Kirkfieldbank, Lanark on Tel/text: 07702273347 or e-mail:- vidler390@btinternet.com

Hello I am Holly up here and as you can see I love to play. As my sister Ivy said we are looking for our forever home. Being fosterered in Bonnybridge. I am flead, wormed, microchipped and had my first part of my vaccination for an indoor and outdoor home. So please give Jill a call on 07801352961 or email jillian27.usher@btopenworld.com

Lady:- I am 4 year old, female, black and white, neutered girl, just looking for a new indoor and outdoor home of my own, since my daddy sadly passed away. I can be a bit aloof when I want to be, but I really like the company of men rather than that of women. I used to sit up on my daddys lap! I do love to go outside, but I also have been used to the comforts of a home environment. I have not been used to children, dogs or other cats. I am currently living in Hamilton but can sadly no longer get access to outside since my owner has moved to a flat, which is rather frustrating for me to say the least.  I probably would love a cat flap to come and go, as I please into a safe outside environment. If you think you can give this rather miffed pussycat that special, quiet loving understanding home for life, then please contact  Karyn on 0770 227 3347 or e-mail:- vidler390@btinternet.com


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.
