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

TIGER. Hello cat People. My name is Tiger and this is me above. I am looking for my new purrfect home through no fault of my own. I am a beautiful, tabby and white girl cat with some unusual orange stripes. I am only 9 months old. I am such a sweet, friendly, gentle cat who loves getting cuddles and likes nothing more than to be near you. I also like to talk away to you. Since I am such a sweet gentle cat, I am looking for a relatively quiet home. I would love to be able to potter about in a garden one day so am looking for an indoor home with safe access to outside eventually to come and go. I am neutered, microchipped and have the first part of my vaccinations. My worming and flea treatment are up to date. I could live with children over 7 years of age and probably ok with other cats. I would make a fantastic companion and would love the chance to become your best friend. I am currently living in Larkhall. The contact is Diane Tel 07964 747-379 or email [email protected].

Cole. Hi everyone Cole above. My name is Cole. I am a cheeky nearly 6 years old boy cat Looking to find my new purrfect home as my current owners work long hours so I am left on my own a lot. My 6th birthday is on the 28th June. I am a very handsome black with white cat with beautiful green eyes. I am very friendly and enjoy cuddling on the sofa. My favourite past time is sun bathing and I love pottering about about in the garden. I am, therefore, looking for an indoor home with safe access to outside to come and go. I am neutered and microchipped. My worming and flea treatment are up to date. I could live with children over 5 years of age. I don’t currently live with another cat but I have cat friends when I go outside so might like a companion. I am currently living in Coatbridge. If you would like to make my birthday wishes come true, the contact is Diane Tel 07964 747-379 or email [email protected].

Coco - We are looking for a good, outside home environment for this 1yr old, semi-feral, male cat. He is neutered and currently up to date with his worming /fleaing. He is looking for regular food and shelter and he will eventually begin to trust you more hopefully, as you go. He is in Thankerton currently and seems fine with other cats. If interested, please contact Karyn on 07702273347 or e-mail her at [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.
