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.

Whisper

Posted in Adopt a Cat, Monochrome Cats | Comments Off

Whisper came to the branch having been abandoned by her prevous owners.  She has been living on the streets for some time and as a result is looking very bedraggled.

At only a year old and being driven away by so many humans, she is still very scared of everything.  Poor Whispter is so nervous that she is only just beginning to groom herself.

Given time a TLC she will soon become a stunning, little kitty and a joy to live with.

If you would like to meet this little girl, she can be seen at Bowler’s cattery.

Bongo

Posted in Adopt a Cat, Monochrome Cats | Comments Off

Poor, terrified Bongo is only 2 years old and has experienced such a lot of cruelty during those years that he is afraid of loud noises and most people.

He is coming round slowly in the cattery but really needs that special person to take him under their wing and give him the time he needs to become the confident loving cat he he was meant to be.

If you think that you could offer this terrified little boy the life he deserves please visit him at Bowler’s cattery

Socks

Socks is one of the friendliest, little cats you could wish to meet.  He can’t wait to greet his visitors and runs up to the front of his pen whenever he hears voices and the cattery door opening.

Socks is about 4 years old and can’t wait to start his wonderful new life with his very own forever family.

Betty

Posted in Adopt a Cat, Monochrome Cats | Comments Off

Betty came to the branch to find a new family, having suffered much cruelty in her previous home.

As a result at only 18 months old she is afraid of almost everything she experiences.

She may never become a confident little girl but in the right family she will become a lovely but timid companion.

If you are that special person who can give little Betty the space and time she needs please visit her at Bowler’s cattery.

Frog

Posted in Adopt a Cat, Monochrome Cats | Comments Off

Frog was left all alone when his owner became too ill to care for home.

He is only 12 months old and a very unhappy kitty who can’t understand why his world has fallen apart.

He will take some time to regain his confidence, but with patience and lots of TLC he will make someone a lovely companion.

Frog can be seen at Bowler’s cattery

Bobby

Posted in Adopt a Cat, Monochrome Cats | Comments Off

Bobby came to the branch when his owners moved house and just dumped him in their garden.

They didn’t come back for him and, until some kind neighbours reported his sad plight to the RSPCA, he found that living all alone was frightening.

However, he is now safe in Bowler’s Cattery and hopes that someone will come along and offer him a caring, forever home and family of his very own.

Coco

Posted in Adopt a Cat, Branch News and Updates, Monochrome Cats | Comments Off

coco-cat Coco (approximately 18 months old) has been with the branch for a few months now and, despite her loving nature, is continually overlooked.

Sadly, many people think little black cats are unlucky, but little Coco thinks that this is a silly superstition because she will be the luckiest cat if she can find her very special, forever family.

Coco can be seen at Bowler’s cattery

Bunny

bunny-kitty Bunny came to the branch from the Greater Manchester Animal Hospital.  He is 4 years  and quite shy to begin with but once he is confident no one will hurt him he is proving to be a very friendly little cat.

Bunny can be seen at Bowler’s Cattery

Toby – special needs kitty

Posted in Adopt a Cat | Comments Off

toby-cat Toby, a domestic short haired kitty who is thought to be about 3 years of age, came to the branch from one of our local veterinary surgeons.  He was found as an injured stray by a kind lady who thought he had badly injured his leg and took him to the surgery to be scanned for a microchip and his leg repaired.

However, following examination, it was found that he has a club foot and will always limp and be unable to climb or escape from dangerous situations easily.  He will be fine as an indoor cat or one which is allowed into a secure garden for a short while.

He is now changing every day.  At first he hid away from his fosterer for a few days and now he is coming out of his shell and becoming more confident. He has settled down and is becoming a loving little cat who will make a great addition to any family.

He has now recovered from his operation and has moved into Bowler’s Cattery where he will be able to meet more potential adopters.

He will receive his second vaccinations on Wednesday 11th April and will then go to the Bowler’s cattery where he can be seen by more people and perhaps someone will offer him a loving home.
