THE Chatteris and district branch of Cats Protection has many cats looking for new homes.

Some of the cats arrive at the branch as strays; others are unwanted or simply abandoned. Some cats come from loving homes that due to circumstances are unable to care for them any longer.

All cats are seen at least twice by a vet, inoculated, neutered, microchipped and treated for fleas and worms. An adoption fee of £60 is made to cover veterinary costs.

The branch always visits prospective owners first to make sure of the best possible home.

Cats Protection never put a healthy cat to sleep.

If you can offer a home to any of the cats or want to volunteer to help the branch please call 01480-465226.

The branch has a waiting list for kittens, so if you are thinking about a kitten, get in touch. Every kitten has the same veterinary checks and immunisations as adult cats before it is offered up for adoption.

Tarzan: This handsome young man came to us as a badly neglected kitten. The care and love he has been given by our fosterer has restored his faith in humans and he is now ready to move on to a new ‘lifelong’ home. He is full of fun and loves to play with children or adults who have time to make his life complete. He is one year old.

Stripes: Another kitten who came to us in a bad way. Stripes is black with unusual, deep brown stripes in his shorthaired coat. He is another playful cat who will make an ideal companion for children as he loves to chase and play with his toys. He is one year old.

Chester: Chester is just under two years old and looking for a new home with either a family or an active older person or couple. He is extremely friendly and loves to rub against your legs and be stroked or tickled under his chin. A new home with a garden will be the ideal outcome from a sorry past for ‘poor old’ Chester.

Chloe: Gorgeous green eyes and a soft, gentle purr sum up this quiet, gentle female. She is about two years old and looking for a home to suit her nature, so an older person or somewhere without children will suit her best. She is happy to stay inside as a house cat and her favourite place is on a lap with loads of personal attention.

Flossie: At 10 years old Flossie is an older cat desperately looking for a ‘forever’ home. She came to us from an older lady who was unable to look after her any more. A single person or older couple will be the ideal outcome for her. She is still active and enjoys finding a sunny spot to relax in.

Freddy (pictured): This six-year-old male tabby may have scary ‘Yoda’ whiskers, but do not be put off. He is a great big softy who loves children, but would not be happy in a new home where there is a dog. He is very good natured and happy to be inside or out in the garden.
