A charity is urgently appealing for a new home for one of its cats which has been in care for nearly two years.

Five-year-old Gizzy arrived at Chatteris Cats Protection charity in 2013 from the home of an elderly owner, and is desperately seeking a new forever home.

The dark tortoiseshell female likes attention, but isn’t too demanding, and would be best suited to a home with just one or two adults.

Gizzy is one of a number of rescued felines at the charity looking for new homes, including two new cats, brothers Jack and Alwin.

Jack is described as a “big softie”, who loves both humans and other cats and is comfortable around older children. He is two-and-a-half-years-old and is a semi-long-haired black and white cat.

Short-haired black cat Alwin is the same age as Jack, but they do not need to be homed together. Like Jack, he is laid-back and friendly but he would prefer an environment where there are no other cats, dogs or small children.

All the cats have been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and are up to date with flea and worm treatment.

A charity spokesman said: “All we ask for is an adoption fee which does not cover all of the above but goes towards it, so if people feel able to donate on top of this we are grateful.”

Details of all cats available and adoption fees can be found at: or by ringing the charity on 03456 472 180. You can also keep up to date with the charity’s latest news and events on Facebook: CatsProtectionChatterisStIves

The charity is also keen to hear from anyone who could help its cats in need by volunteering.
