Seeing things in black and white
Can you give an animal a loving home and a new start in life?
WHO would have thought that in the 21st century people would still be suspicious of a black cat?
But this must be the case because we can’t think of any other reason why the black cats we have in our care needing a new home are so often overlooked.
These cats are just as loving, affectionate and every bit as cute as a tabby or a ginger tom, they are just a bit harder to see in the dark.
At the moment here at the Middlesex North West Branch of the RSPCA of the 54 cats we have 34 of them are either black or black and white cats who are all raring to go to a new home. They are so keen to move on they even have their bags packed and waiting at the front door of their cage at the cattery.
Silver is a neutered four year old male who is looking for a home where he is not being fussed all the time. He likes his own space but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t enjoy being stroked, he does but just not all the time.
Silver would be better in a family with older children or with a couple who are in full time work. He can get in a bit of a strop when having to go the vet or put in a cat basket (but don’t they all?).
He is a nice cat who enjoys a bit of independence but who also likes to know you’re there when needed and he is in the mood for snuggles.
Warrick, who is about six years old, is a really nice boy and would make a great family cat. Warrick thinks six years old is a good age to be, not too young and not too old.
He is at that age where he is still lively and playful but content to stay at home when some-one is around and wants company. He is friendly and a very likeable chap. Although he shows no aggression to other cats he has always been a single cat so it is best that he goes to a home where he will be the only cat.
Russell is a lovely friendly cat who just loves to have a chat. Meow, meow, meow is all you can hear from his pen at the cattery when he knows you are around, shouting for someone – anyone will do – to come and say hello.
He entered our care with a nasty bite wound on his toe which had become infected.
Now that has been treated its time for him to move on to a new home where he can receive the attention he craves.
If you think you could give Silver, Warrick or Russell that ‘home for life’ then please give us a call on 020 8966 9688 or email us at email@example.com
