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

Hi
We are two BIG boys, seven weeks old now, and looking for our forever home soon. Our names are Danny and Bramble and we are furever brothers so we would like to be homed together. We like to play at wrestling, hide and seek and chases. When we are tired from all those games, we love to snuggle up together. We also love.....TUMMY RUBS!! Our foster carers say we are the cuddliest kittens ever. If you would like to have the chance to rub our tummies and have us cuddle up beside you, please comment below or contact Jill on 07801 352961. We promise you....you won't regret it. 

STRICKLY KITTEN. Hello Cat lovers. Darcey here. My Strickly kitten siblings have waltzed into their forever, purrfect homes Now it's my turn. I am a beautiful 4 month old ginger girl kitten. I miss dancing with my brothers and sister so I must have home with a friendly resident cat to tango with, who can take me under his/her wing. Although I can be a shy, I love to play, purr and be cuddled

I can live with children aged 7 years and over. I would like to waltz outside, when I am old enough, so am looking for an inside home with access to the outside, when the time is right. I have been flea and worm treated. I will be neutered and microchipped and will receive the first part of my vaccinations before going to my forever home. I am currently Cha Cha Cha-ing in Blackwood, South Lanarkshire. If you want me to add sparkle to your life, please contact my slave Diane. Tel 07964 747-379 or email litterickd@gmail.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.
