RSPCA Cat Rehoming
Sweet little Carrie is gentle girl of 2- 5 years who loves to spend time playing with her foster carer.
To watch Carrie snuggle and play now, you’d never believe what a difficult life she’s had. Inspectors found her in a home with aggressive dogs, where she’d tried to protect her 5 very young kittens. She was terrified, and spent weeks hiding in a box with her nose in the corner, caring for her kittens.
After lots of careful and loving attention from her foster mum, Carrie has come out of her shell, and grown in confidence and curiosity. Look at her playing here.
We’re looking for a quiet home, without dogs - although she will tolerate another cat. Carrie needs an adopter who is patient and can give her the time that she needs. In return she’ll be a loving and beautiful companion.
Carrie is neutered and vaccinated, and we’re thrilled that she’s ready for her new home now.
Polly and Basil
Brother and sister pair, Polly and Basil, are big adorable black cats who come from a loving home but find themselves in need of a new home. They’ve always lived together and we don’t want to separate them. Basil is the boss, but he's a lovely boy - and very unusual. He's a polydactyl - meaning he has extra claws and big feet.
These cats are quiet and friendly and will be a relaxed addition to your family. See them here:
Basil and Polly would be very suitable for an older person, or for people who want calm and settled cats to fill their home.
They are currently living with a foster carer who will be happy to tell you more about these sweet cats.
