STIG. Hello everyone my name is Stig. I am the most beautiful ginger boy kitten looking for my forever home. I am 4 months old. I am a very gentle cat who never stops purring. I love to play. I had a bad start to life living in a busy, noisy quarry, dodging big lorries. I can be a little bit shy so am looking for an experience cat person to bring me out of my shell. I would like to go to a home where there is another cat to play with. I can go to a home where there is a cat friendly dog who would love a special little friend. When I am old enough, I would like to go outside to explore, so need a home in a quiet residential area, away from busy roads. Before homing, I will have been neutered, will have received the first part of my vaccination and will be microchipped. Worming and flea treatment is up to date.  I can live with children over 8 years of age. I am currently living in Blackwood . If you wish to make my dreams  come true, please contact Diane Litterick Tel 07964 747-379 or email [email protected].

BO. Hello. My name is Bo and I am looking for a new forever home as I do not get on with the resident cat. I am a beautiful 6 year old girl cat. I love to cuddle and sit on your lap. I am good at making well hidden dens at the bottom of the wardrobe and like to admire my pretty reflection in the mirror. I am deaf so purr and meow quite loudly.  I am used to going outside to explore so am looking for a home in a quiet residential area, away from busy roads. I have been neutered and microchipped. I have been vaccinated. My worming and flea treatment is up to date.  I can live with children over 8 years of age. I do not wish to live with another cat or dog and am looking for a quieter home. I am currently living in Lesmahagow, South Lanarkshire. If you wish to make my dreams come true, please contact Diane Litterick Tel 07964 747-379 or email [email protected].

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 cat.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 CAT 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 or so had passed, these lucky, playful, socialised kittens went to the vets and then off to their forever, loving homes. Safely far removed from a life in the colony Toyah used to call home. Toyah turn now for a vets visit to be spayed, etc. 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 again. Unfortunately, there are many cats like Toyah out there; living in dangerous environments, depending on the kindness of strangers for a crumb of food, hiding from people who would harm them, sleeping in cold uncomfortable dens, constantly giving birth to kittens outside. We need many more people to help offer cats like Toyah a permanent, safe environment, such as on good stables, smallholdings or farms.
