Cats need ‘purrfect’ homes

CHATTERIS District branch of Cats Protection has many cats and kittens in need of good homes.

Some of the cats arrive at the branch as strays, others are unwanted or simply abandoned. Some cats come from loving homes which due to circumstances their owners are unable to care for them any longer. When a cat comes in it is seen at least twice by a vet, neutered, micro-chipped and treated for fleas and worms and where necessary, given a blood test.

An adoption fee of £55 is asked for to cover veterinary costs.

The welfare of the cats is the branch’s priority and volunteers always visit prospective owners first to make sure of the best possible home.

Cats Protection never puts a healthy cat to sleep. If you can offer a home to any of the cats or want to volunteer to help the branch call 01480-465226.

This week the Citizen features a trio of tortoiseshells.

Freya. This lovely two year-old female is very friendly and affectionate. Freya will be an ideal companion for either an older person looking for company or a young family where there are people to make a fuss of her.

Lily. Has recently had a litter of kittens and has now been neutered. She is another two year-old and is looking for a new home with adults or an older person.

Tia. More than a trace of grey in with the tortoiseshell makes Tia a most unusual and attractive cat. She is small and athletic with lots of energy while retaining a very friendly nature. Tia would make a loving and attentive pet for virtually any family or single person.
