CHATTERIS branch of The Cats Protection League has many cats looking for 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, are unable to care for them any longer. When and adult cat comes in, it is neutered and treated for fleas and worms.

The welfare of the cats is the top priority and the branch always visits prospective owners to make sure of the best possible home.

The Cats Protection League never puts a healthy animal down and welcomes any donation from new owners. If you can offer a home to any of these cats or want to volunteer to help the branch call 01480-465226.

VALENTINE (pictured): Is a four-year-old female tortoiseshell who badly needs a home as she is not happy in her pen. Valentine needs a home with no children and a large garden. She doesn’t like other cats or dogs and needs to be an only cat.

PEGGY (pictured): Came to the branch in bad shape and days from starvation. She is a tiny, short-haired cat aged about two. A very energetic cat who never stays still and demands a lot of attention. Peggy may be too much for young children but will make a great cat for a family with older children.

LUCY (pictured); Lucy’s owner emigrated. She is a black cat, very shy and needs a quiet home. Once settled, she will prove to be a very loving cat who would suit an older person with time to allow her confidence to grow.

Other cats not pictured needing homes are sisters Frankie and Benny and their brother Nacho. They are nine months old and at about 12 weeks were discovered starving and living in a bush.

They are shy, well behaved and very sweet natured cats, used to dogs being around and are very sociable with other cats. Their ideal home is one where they can have outdoor freedom.
