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.
5. Pawla- Domestic shorthair crossbreed (8 months)
Beautiful Pawla arrived in branch care via the inspectorate from a multi-cat household. She is around 8 months old. Pawla is feeling very overwhelmed by all she has been through recently. She is not used to everyday family life and home living so will need an understanding and patient owner who can help her feel safe. Over time and in the right home, we think that Pawla's confidence and trust will grow. She could live with another cat after slow and careful introductions. Ideally, we would like to find her an adult only home but she could live with a family with older sensible children of secondary school age.
6. Drew- Domestic shorthair crossbreed (5 years)
This sweet girl is Drew, and she was brought into RSPCA care via an Inspector as she was living in very poor conditions. After an assesment and some much needed tlc she is now ready to find her forever home. Drew was transferred to us here at Block Fen from another centre and she has found cattery life quite stressful and is struggling to settle into a new environment. We feel that Drew would progress much more by being in a loving home environment where she can come out of her shell in her own time with just a few friendly faces to get used to. Drew spends most of her time hidden, either in her igloo or under a cushion as this is where she feels safest. Despite her timidness Drew is a very sweet girl and does enjoy a fuss once she figures out everything is ok. Once she feels more comfortable around you the more confident she gets.
7. Coco-Domestic Shorthair crossbreed (3 years)
Coco is a nice little cat, she is very friendly and confident. She came in to us because her owner could no longer look after her. She doesn't like other cats. She could live with older children, but no dogs. She enjoys being out in the secure garden at the cattery, and once settled in her new home she will like to go out into a garden.
8. Colin Furrth- Domestic shorthair crossbreed (8 years)
Unique Colin Furrth was signed over by his owner who was no longer able to care for him. He is around 8 years old. If you are looking for an affectionate cat, Colin is the dude for you! He absolutely loves fuss and attention and head bops everyone he meets. As can be seen from his photo, Colin is missing most of his tail and he also has an odd saggy chin! These add to his quirkiness and cause him no bother. Colin Furrth is neutered, microchipped and has started his vaccination course. A mild heart murmur was detected whilst at the vets but was most likely caused by stress. He is now ready to find his new furever home. Colin could live with children over 5 and might be able to live with another cat after careful introductions.
