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

THE KITTY GALORE MOB. WALLACE.  Hello Wallace here. I am a beautiful, friendly, all black, 13 week old kitten. There's no point in prevaricating about the bush. My ginger coloured brother, Gromit, found his forever home. Now it’s my turn to find my purrfect home where “Everyone knows the moon is made of cheese”.  I am extremely playful and love belly rubs. I love getting cuddles. If you offer me a home, “I’ll be there before you can say Jack Robinson”.  I am looking for an indoor home in a quiet residential area, away from busy roads, as one day, when I am old enough, I would like to go out and explore. My worming and flea treatment is up to date. I will be microchipped and will have received the first part of my vaccinations, before homing. I could live with children over 5 years of age. I am currently living in Blackwood, South Lanarkshire. "Oooh! I do like a bit of Gorgonzola”. Failing that I will settle for a great home with tasty cat food and chicken.

HUNTER. Meow cat lovers, Hunter here. I am a beautiful, friendly 6 year old boy. I have had a very bad start in life, struggling to survive as a stray for 5 years. My dreams came true when I was rescued by a lovely couple, who worked their magic and turned me from a dirty, frightened stray, into a beautiful lap-cat lion king. Sadly, there are several cats in their house, which I find difficult to cope with. I am looking for a very special person or family who can offer me my forever home, as I am FIV positive. One day I might enjoy to potter in an enclosed garden, so am looking for an inside home, with access to the outside, in a safe area, away from busy roads. I can live with children aged 5 years plus. I am neutered and microchipped and my fleaing and worming is up to date. I must be the only cat in the house. If you feel you can offer me my forever home, you will not be disappointed. I am currently living in Lanark. The contact for me is Diane on 07964 747-379 or e-mail [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.
