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.

To see even more cats looking for homes please follow the “older posts” link at the foot of each page.

Twinkle and Sparkle – looking for a barn or stable home

Posted in Adopt a Cat | Comments Off
twinkle-kitten We have 2 kittens looking for a farm / stable home.

They have been living independently under a garden shed.   Since being with us, they have accepted humans provide food and do allow some contact but are not suitable for family homes. They are neutered, wormed and flead.

Both use litter trays and are spotlessly clean and we would like them to find a home together so they can keep each other company.

Advice will be given on introducing outdoor cats to their new homes.

 

Chloe

Posted in Adopt a Cat, Monochrome Cats | Comments Off
chleo_0 Chloe is a 2 year old little cat who is looking for an outdoor home perhaps in a barn or around your stables.  She will make sure that the mice won’t be eating their fill in your feed store and will enjoy living free.  Alternatively, as she is currently living in a foster home where she is litter trained but she is very frightened of humans touching her or moving too quickly, she could possibly live mostly in a home but where she will be left to her own devices and where she will be allowed to come and go when she pleases once her once she’s served her compulsory 4 – 6 week sentence.

Chloe originally came into branch care from a local vet where she had been rescued by one of their clients along with her kittens.  At first, probably because she was nursing her little ones she appeared quite friendly but once she had weaned them she began to show her more feral nature.  She has now spent several months hiding under her foster carer’s sofa, only coming out to play and eat during the night.

Little Chloe has been neutered but had to be trapped (see her photo) to get her to the vet for her operation.   She is now back under the sofa but longing to spend time outdoors.

If you would like to adopt Chloe and are prepared to keep feeding her and making sure she is safe we’d love to hear from you.  Please email or leave a message on our answerphone and we’ll get back to you with more details about our feral adoption scheme.

Lady and Susie (Susie has now been rehomed)

Posted in Adopt a Cat, Monochrome Cats | Comments Off
lady-and-susie-cats Lady (black and white) and Susie (Tortoiseshell), who are now 9 years of age, were adopted from the branch as kittens.  Sadly, their owner had to move into other accommodation and asked us to find them a home as she couldn’t take them with her.

Susie has been lucky enough to find her forever home but little Lady is still looking for her special family to call her own.

If you would like to meet her and the other cats in branch care they can be seen at Bowler’s cattery

Jess

Posted in Adopt a Cat, Monochrome Cats | Comments Off

jess-cat Jess is a lovely 1 year old girl, who loves to catch the cattery staff’s attention by calling out to them.    She is afraid that they won’t have time to chat so she makes sure that they know she just wants a cuddle.

This little kitty must have been someone’s pet in her past life but when they moved she was left on her own.

If you are interested in giving Jess a forever home, please go along to Bowler’s Cattery to meet her.

Arthur

arthur-cat Arthur is a lovely, gentle cat of about 4 years of age.   He is a bit lost in the cattery as he is used to a lonesome life on the streets.  We think that he has been well cared for in the past but, because his family couldn’t be traced, the RSPCA’s Animal Hospital in Salford sent him to us to be rehomed.

Arthur can be seen at Bowler’s Cattery

Oscar

oscar-cat_0 Oscar is a 3 year old semi long haired tabby and white cat who is extremely friendly with everyone he meets.  Oscar just wants to come to visitors for lots of cuddles.

His striking coat will need regular grooming but this is something that Oscar loves to have done.   So lots of bonding time can be spent keeping this lovely boy spic and span and knot free.

james-cat_1 James is an adult cat who came to the branch via the RSPCA’s Greater Manchster Animal Hospital where he had been taken by one of our inspectors as his family had simply left him all alone when they moved elsewhere.

Despite his ordeal James is still a very friendly cat who loves attention and purrs like a steam engine when he’s happy to meet you.
