Can you help fe­lines find furr-ever homes?

Midweek Visiter - - Front Page -

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!
