De­light­ful tor­toise­shell lady look­ing to bring luck to a home of her own

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

THE RSPCA Hilling­don, Slough, Wind­sor, Kingston, have many tor­tie cats from ages of eight weeks up to 10 years.

Tor­toise­shell de­scribes a coat colour­ing found al­most ex­clu­sively in fe­male cats.

These cats, with their colour­ful wo­ven coats, pro­vide a ver­i­ta­ble feast of colours they have re­sem­blance to the fallen leaves of au­tumn, and they are be­lieved to bring good luck in the folk­lore of many cul­tures and where some­times re­ferred to as money cats.

Tor­toise­shell cats tend to have much more of a dis­tinct per­son­al­ity, many tor­toise­shell own­ers be­lieve their cats have in­creased at­ti­tude and they call it “tor­ti­tude”.

Tor­ties are al­most al­ways very ac­tive and play­ful, with sassy, in-your-face at­ti­tudes.

They also of­ten fancy them­selves as al­pha cats. Tor­ties can be very affectionate and lov­ing, even though some of them may not want to be held for long.

Jessie ( pic­tured) is a year old and a de­light­ful play­ful lit­tle lady. She loves to give gen­tle “kisses” and have lots of at­ten­tion. She re­ally en­joys some­one play­ing with her and her toys – jump­ing about and show­ing off all the time. Her pre­vi­ous owner said she didn’t get on with her child, so to avoid the risk of Jessie be­ing caused any more stress, we are look­ing for a home for her with no chil­dren or other cats. Jessie can ap­pear shy at first but a lit­tle pa­tience and time spent with her soon pays off, and she’s so worth it. Please get in touch if you can give the lovely Jessie a new start in life.

We have baby guinea pigs and rab­bits look­ing for lov­ing for­ever homes if you think you can of­fer them the care and space that they need please con­tact the branch.

We have many kit­tens/ cats and dogs look­ing for lov­ing homes and this can be very costly on the branch if you could spare any old bed­ding for the an­i­mals or do­nate any food how­ever small can make such a dif­fer­ence.

Thank you for your sup­port, we can’t do it with­out you.

If you think you can of­fer one of our an­i­mals a lov­ing home then please ring RSPCA Hilling­don Branch on 01895 833417 or visit our web­site www. rspc­ahilling­don­clinic.org. uk to down­load an ap­pli­ca­tion form.
