The Peterborough Telegraph is running regular spotlights on cats that need new homes to support the work of animal charities in the Peterborough area.
The Peterborough and District Branch of the RSPCA do so much to rescue, nurture and subsequently rehome all kinds of pets in the area. They have continued to operate throughout lockdown and within a small radius are still permitted to rehome these animals.
Below are a selection of those that have been rescued and are in need of their forever home.
To find more details on each cat and to search for more rescue animals, visit www.rspca.org.uk/findapet/rehomeapet/process.
The RSPCA are funded entirely by public donations and receive no government money and therefore rely on the generosity of the public. Anyone wishing to support their work do so via www.rspca.org.uk/getinvolved/donate.
1. Morris- Domestic Shorthair crossbreed (10 years)
Handsome Morris had been a well looked after stray for a long time. Possibly he was left behind when someone moved. He came to us, as his main carers could not provide medical care for him when needed. He does have a fast heart rate when examined (although difficult to assess as he purrs so much) which may just be caused by the stress of travelling. His blood tests show normal results.He doesn't have many teeth but eats wet and dry food although he prefers wet. He loves being in the garden and loves vet visits. This poor boy has had no enquiries at all, he is a super friendly boy and deserves a loving home
2. Lily- Domestic Shorthair crossbreed (2 years)
Lily was handed to us as she lived in a very busy household with children and she found this overwhelming. Although shy at first she is a very loving girl who likes a fuss. In the right home she will be great company.
3. Isabelle- Domestic Shorthair crossbreed (3 years)
This pretty girl is Isabelle and shecame to us here at Block Fen from another centre. She had previously been living amongst many other stray cats, with a horrific injury to her tail. Now after receiving the veterinary treatment she needed, she is now ready to look for a new home.
4. Jonesy- Domestic Shorthair crossbreed (8 years)
Say hello to Jonesy. Named after the pirate cat Jonesy who kept the ship in order and helped keep the crew ship shape. Jonesy came to the Centre as a stray cat who needed medical attention. Jonesy has been at the Centre a short time now and is fully recovered so we feel that he is ready to find his new home. Poor Jonesy is very scared here at the Centre and doesn't show himself off in the best light but he needs a very understanding owner that will allow him time to adjust to his new life in a home and where he can relax and be himself.
