Cats can’t help be­ing made home­less

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

POPPY is a grey and white cat of about a year old. Poor Poppy found her­self home­less when she and her owner were evicted.

As you can see, she is a very pretty lit­tle cat and she loves to be groomed and re­ceive lots of fuss.

She can be a lit­tle timid at first, but once she gets to know you she has so much af­fec­tion to share.

Poppy def­i­nitely does not like dogs and would pre­fer to be the only cat in the house­hold, but she loves older chil­dren and al­ways en­joys a game with one of her toys.

Is there a spe­cial place for Poppy in your life? If so, please get in touch.

Lovely Jaz JAZ is also a grey girl with lovely long hair.

We don’t know how Jaz orig­i­nally came to be a stray – be­fore choos­ing her­self a new home some time ago – but once again she has nowhere to go as her own­ers are mov­ing abroad.

Aged about seven years old, Jaz is such a ‘peo­ple’ cat, con­stantly crav­ing at­ten­tion and want­ing to be in hu­man company.

Although she loves a fuss, she’s not that keen on be­ing groomed, so be­ing a long haired cat, some pa­tience will be needed to groom lit­tle and of­ten to con­vince her it isn’t such a bad thing, and help keep her coat in good con­di­tion.

Can you of­fer Jaz all the love and at­ten­tion she wants and a home that re­ally will be for for­ever this time?
