Jezza: Available for adoption

This curious tabby is looking for his forever home. When Jezza first came into the centre he was shy and withdrawn, he can still be spooked easily so a quiet home is preferred. He loves to play with feathers and has a great time chasing teaser toys. Jezza will benefit from living with someone who can spend plenty of time with him and keep building his confidence. He will sit and have cuddles happily but he can still be a bit nervous around strangers so a gentle introduction is needed. Jezza may experience flare-ups of eye discharge as a result of the flu virus, as he was more badly affected than the other kittens. Jezza came to us after being abandoned at a school in a box. With 4 litter mates.  The kittens were all suffering badly from cat flu. They have recovered well, but because the flu virus stays in their system, they can shed the virus at times of stress. For this reason, we are rehoming them as indoor cats, to prevent the virus spreading in the environment. They will also need to go to a cat-free home. They will need plenty of stimulation and enrichment within the home, and their weight will need to be monitored carefully as they mature.  If you are out for most of the day, we’d recommend you consider taking two kittens so they have a playmate to keep them amused.

If you can offer Jezza the loving home he deserves, please complete the application form Rehome forms_Application form CATS AND KITTENS  and email it to rehoming@rspca-whs.org.uk

Lenny: Available for adoption

This ginger ninja is looking for his forever home. He is a very outgoing kitten and loves nothing more than to play! He is very vocal and will let you know when its tea time. He has a great character and would thrive in a family home. He has the loudest purr so you know when you’re tickling the right spot. He’s a lovely combination of lapcat and action man!

Heidi: Available for adoption

When Heidi first arrived at the centre she was extremely scared and withdrawn. She still can get worried by sudden movements and loud noises so a quiet house without children would be ideal. When Heidi knows and trusts you she is very affectionate and loves to play chase games with feathers, she also loves to jump and perform acrobatics when she plays. She has a sassy personality and in the right home will create joy and laughter. Heidi came to us after being abandoned at a school in a box.

Maisie: Available for adoption

This little torti is far from naughty! Maisie is very vocal for her size so you certainly won’t miss her. She loves having her chin scratched and will paw you back if you stop. She is full of life and raring to go. Maisie can be spooked by sudden noises but is soon settled with a fuss. Ideally she would need to go to a home with older children.
