Can you help felines find furr-ever homes?
HERE at Southport Ormskirk & District Animal Centre we have a few pairs of cats available for adoption, for whom we hope to find furr-ever homes before Christmas.
Firstly, we have the gorgeous Apollo and Blue, both one year-old male cats.
Apollo is long haired and will require regular brushing to help keep his fur nice and knot-free.
Luckily he enjoys being brushed and we have found it is a great way to bond with him.
Silky smooth Blue isn’t quite as confident as Apollo, but soon comes around. We have found a few treats help! These beautiful friendly cats are looking for a home with no other cats or dogs.
They are suitable to be rehomed with high school children aged 12+.
Our second duo is Fred and Pumpkin.
They are brothers who are both four year-old tabby and white males, who we have found to be very close.
They both have funny and curious characters and will surely keep you entertained.
Fred and Pumpkin can be a little nervous and unsure at first, but once they’re settled, they’re very affectionate and would happily sit on your lap all day, if you’d let them.
We have found Fred to be a little more timid than Pumpkin; he will take a little more time to come out of his shell and may be a little more hand-shy until he grows in confidence, once in his new home.
Fred and Pumpkin are to be the only pets in the household and to live with older children aged 10+.
Last but not least we have MaryJane and Spider who are also looking to stay together forever.
This brother and sister duo are approximately eight years old.
We have found this lovely pair to be very shy at first, but have soon grown in confidence here at the animal centre and now enjoy being fussed over and stroked by staff.
They require a home where owners will be hands-off at first and allow time and space for them to both adjust.
Once they have, you will see they are very sweet-natured cats who just want some T.L.C. Mary-Jane and Spider must be rehomed together, but they too aren’t to go with any other cats or dogs.
They are suitable to be rehomed with older children aged 10+.
Before I sign off from this week’s article, I would just like to remind all our lovely readers that our Christmas fair is only around the corner.
We will be returning to Greenbank High school in Hillside, Southport on December 1.
We have pleaded before, but we are in desperate need to stock up on bottles for our bottle hoopla.
If anyone can donate a bottle we would very much appreciate it.
It doesn’t have to be booze, everything from wine and beer to ketchup and shampoo will be a great help.
In addition, we are looking for unwanted gifts (new please) for raffle prizes, or if you own a company, would you like to sponsor, or gift anything?
Anything that will support the care of the animals whether directly or indirectly is always most welcome.
Please drop any goodies at the animal centre.
Oh, and don’t forget to come on the day to support us!
In are next article we will release more details of the festive day.
Watch this space!
