Con­sider keep­ing some more ma­ture com­pany

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

HERE at the RSPCA Mid­dle­sex North West branch we have so many lovely adult cats ea­ger to set­tle into a new for­ever home yet dur­ing the sum­mer months many get over­looked in favour of the mis­chievous baby faced kit­tens.

How­ever these more ma­ture cats have so much go­ing for them. Many have been through com­plete trans­for­ma­tions while in our care and de­spite a tough past these fe­line friends just want a sec­ond chance.

We cur­rently have more than 40 adult cats ready and wait­ing to come home with you and show you how great hav­ing an adult res­cue cat can be.

Older cats are gen­er­ally less de­mand­ing than the young­sters and need less su­per­vi­sion, so if you’re out of the house dur­ing the day an adult cat is much bet­ter able to cope by it­self while you are out as op­posed to a young­ster who will be per­form­ing ac­ro­bat­ics on your cur­tains and div­ing off the shelves.

Cats regularly live into their late teens and be­yond these days, so will have many years of life and love to give (be­tween naps).

Fairy is a sweet girl who has had quite a harsh life liv­ing on the streets for some years, hav­ing sev­eral lit­ters of kit­tens which she did a fab job of car­ing for and rear­ing, never with a per­ma­nent place of her own to call home.

Fairy, who is about four years old would best suit a home with adult own­ers or those with older chil­dren as we feel she may find young folk a bit too much to cope with. She has lived around other cats in the past so she may be suit­able for a home with ad­di­tional fe­lines, ideally easy go­ing males.

She may take a lit­tle longer than most to ad­just to a new en­vi­ron­ment, but since she has been with us here she has set­tled well and we ex­pect given a lit­tle time she will set­tle in well in a new home.

Ogre is a beau­ti­ful young lady who came into our care at the end of the sum­mer last year hav­ing been born in a garage and is now a year old. She’d had lit­tle hu­man con­tact prior to com­ing into our care so as you can imag­ine she was ter­ri­fied of peo­ple.

Ogre is a sweet na­tured cat who loves be­ing around peo­ple and other cats, though that doesn’t al­ways mean she wants to be sit­ting on your lap be­ing stroked, just nearby so she can see what you are up to.

She is a play­ful cat who is lively and in­quis­i­tive, friendly and a lit­tle in­de­pen­dent.

If you think you could of­fer ei­ther Fairy or Ogre a home then please ei­ther give us a call on (020) 8966 9688 or email us at: info@rsp­camid­dle­sex.org. uk to find out how you can adopt them.
