Adopt a Cat

We are now only accepting cats and kittens who have been taken to the RSPCA’s Greater Manchester Animal Hospital by RSPCA Inspectors or Collection Officers. Many have been ill-treated or severely neglected by their previous owners.

The branch is now sharing private boarding with RSPCA Stockport, East Cheshire and South Derbyshire Branch at Bowler’s Cattery, SK2 5HF and as a result their little cats and kittens are also appearing on this page.

TO ARRANGE TO MEET AND ADOPT ANY OF THE CATS OR KITTENS BELOW PLEASE TELEPHONE:0795 412 2481. Or, send us an email to [email protected] not forgetting to include your contact phone number. This number is ONLY FOR ADOPTIONS. The branch can now only accept cats and kittens rescued by our inspectors due to lack of funds and safe spaces to care for them.

VISIT OUR ADOPTION POLICY PAGE AT http://www.rspca-tameside-glossop.org.uk/about-the-branch/our-policies

We ask for an adoption fee of £60 for an adult cat and £70 for a kitten (cash please) to offset some of the costs we incur in caring for and treating the cats in our care, please contact us for terms for multiple adoptions or when adopting an elderly cat. When compared with the initial expense of essential welfare costs when obtaining a “free” kitten from a friend or neighbour, such as neutering, Blood tests, vaccinations and flea and worming treatment the estimated cost of which is now over £200, by adopting one of our animals you are saving money and…….more importantly a life. See our Adoption Process on the right hand column particularly the link to – Adopting a Cat from the branch for a full breakdown of costs.

To see more information and photos (if available) please just click on the “.. continue reading” link which will take you to each cat or kitten’s full information and photos then by clicking on their thumbnail photos you will be able to view larger images.

Tinker – Reserved

Posted in Adopt a Cat | Comments Off

tinker Tinker is  a lovely 6 year old boy who is longing for a family of his own.   He would love to settle down and spend long lazy evenings in front of a warm fire this winter.   Once he’s had his compulsory 6 week indoors he would probably like to spend some time during the daylight hours in his garden.

If you’re interested in adopting him, Tinker can be seen at Bowler’s Cattery.

Barney – an older kitty

Posted in Adopt a Cat | Comments Off
barney-w Barney, who is 14 years old, came to us to find a caring new family from one of our local veterinary practices.

He is looking for a quiet retirement home where he can spend many hours snoozing in the summer sun, once it’s stopped raining, and by the fire on cold winter days and nights.

His fosterer has said ” Barney is very affectionate, has a nice, placid, easy going temperament, always uses his litter tray and likes lots of attention”

He would suit an older person who would like some company and if you could offer this elderly gentleman his forever home please contact the branch to ask about OPAS – our Older Pet Adoption Scheme.

To meet Barney please send an email and we will send you our perfect match form.
