Show some love for a black kit­ten

Harefield Gazette - - LEISURE -


EARE ask­ing just one ques­tion this week. Why are all the black cats left be­hind? It is a prob­lem ex­pe­ri­enced all over the world, ap­par­ently, and yet black cats have as much to of­fer as any other cat.

Through no fault of their own they are over­looked, as most peo­ple tend to choose ‘pret­tier’ coloured cats. Even black kit­tens are the last to be adopted, while their more colour­ful sib­lings are cho­sen first.

And so, black cats spend longer in hom­ing cen­tres, wait­ing for some­one to see past their colour.

Two beau­ti­ful black cats that need per­ma­nent homes are Shadow and Mara. Shadow is only 18 months old, and has had far too much ex­pe­ri­ence of be­ing home­less al­ready and de­serves more from life.

Dumped on our doorstep by peo­ple who had pre­vi­ously taken her in off the streets, only to find she was not wel­comed by the other res­i­dent cat, she found her­self aban­doned again.

She is a very sweet and gen­tle lit­tle lady who loves lots of fuss and cud­dles and just wants a loving home where she can set­tle for life. Can you make our Shadow feel loved and wanted again?

Mara is a real baby, only seven months old, and although pre­tend­ing to be grown-up is still re­ally just a very out­go­ing and play­ful kit­ten, who loves a ‘mad hour’ to charge around hav­ing fun.

But when the ex­cite­ment is over, Mara loves noth­ing more than to set­tle down with a cud­dle and lots of fuss.

She can quite hap­pily amuse her­self and would pre­fer to be the sole cen­tre of at­ten­tion, but wouldn’t mind the company of another play­ful cat.

Mara would re­ally like to find a home with some­one who is ex­pe­ri­enced with cats and would un­der­stand her quirky ways. Please, do you have a lit­tle space in your heart and on your sofa for Mara?

If you think you can of­fer any of our beau­ti­ful black cats a loving home, please ring RSPCA Hilling­don branch on 01895 833 417 or visit our web­site, at www.rspc­ahilling­don­, to down­load an ap­pli­ca­tion form.
