See­ing things in black and white

Can you give an an­i­mal a lov­ing home and a new start in life?

Harefield Gazette - - ANIMAL NEWS -

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.
