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.

Chloe

Posted in Adopt a Cat, Monochrome Cats | Comments Off
chloe Chloe is a 2 year old little cat who is looking for an outdoor home in a barn or around your stables.  She will make sure that the mice won’t be eating their fill in your feedstore and will enjoy living free 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 to be neutered.   She is now back under the sofa and 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.

Ginger

Posted in Adopt a Cat | Comments Off

Ginger, who is just 3 years old, came into branch care when his previous owners simply threw him out into the street.  An animal collection officer took him to the Greater Manchester Hospital where he received all the care he needed before being sent to us to find a loving new home.

All Ginger wants is a forever home with a loving family who won’t discard him along with their household rubbish.

If you would like to meet him please visit Bowler’s cattery.

Suzi

Suzi is a 3 year old kitty, who was no longer wanted by her owners who had taken her to the RSPCA’s Greater Manchester Animal Hospital.

She has now come to the branch to find a family who very much want a lovely little cat like Suzi.

Suzi is still very nervous but, once she has settled in and her new humans show her that she is safe with them, we are confident that she will become a loving little companion.

To meet Suzi please visit Bowler’s Cattery

 

Stanley

Stanley is a 3 year old cat who has come to the branch via one of our inspectors as his owners found  that they had too many cats and kittens and asked the National Society for help.

He is still a bit nervous but will make some one a lovely companion if his new family are patient and give him time to become more confident.

He can be seen at Bowler’s Cattery

Bouncer

Posted in Adopt a Cat | Comments Off

Bouncer is a 2 year old boy who has come to the branch after being found wandering by one of RSPCA’s Animal Collection Officers.

Understandably, after being shooed away by so many strangers, he is a bit nervous.  However, we’ve found that he will soon come round and love you if you give him his “dreamies“.

If you would like to meet Bouncer, he can be seen at Bowler’s Cattery.

Tom and Jerry

Posted in Adopt a Cat, Monochrome Cats | Comments Off

Tom and Jerry are 13 week old kittens who have come into branch to find their new home either together or separately.

Both are hoping that families will not think that because they are black kitties they will unlucky.  They are really very lucky kittens to have been rescued by one of our inspectors from a cruel owner.   Poor little Jerry had no skin under his chin when found.

This injury has been treated, he has been given antibiotics and had his wound cleaned and stitched, so the brothers are now ready to find a loving, forever family where they will learn that humans can be kind and they never have to live in fear again.

If you would like to meet them please call into Bowler’s Cattery.

Blackie – Kitty

Blackie will make a lovely house guest and won’t be a very demanding kitty but will keep your family entertained and quietly make her presence known.

Blackie can be seen at Bowler’s cattery

Scruff

Posted in Adopt a Cat | Comments Off

Scruff has been with the branch for a couple months now and is looking for his forever family and is thought to be about 5 years old.  He has spent quite a time as a stray but despite his hard life Scruff is so friendly with everyone he meets we are surprised that he hasn’t been snapped up quickly.

Scruff has many years of friendliness to give to one lucky family who can offer him the chance of a new life of comfort, one he may never had experienced before.

He is clean in the cattery and uses his litter tray.  Scruff can be seen at Bowler’s Cattery.

Lady

Posted in Adopt a Cat, Monochrome Cats | Comments Off

Lady is a 2 year old domestic short-haired cat.   She came to the branch to find a caring new home directly from the RSPCA’s Greater Manchester Animal Hospital where she was taken by one of our inspectors to be vaccinated, neutered and blood tested before being advertised for adoption.

Lady is looking for her forever home where she will be cared for and loved by her special family.

She can be seen at Bowler’s cattery

Whisper – on hold

Posted in Adopt a Cat, Monochrome Cats | Comments Off

Whisper came to the branch having been abandoned by her previous owners.  Because she has been living on the streets for quite a while she is extremely frightened of new people and situations.  As a result she is going to live in a foster home with a lady who has had lots of experience in turning terrified little cats into more confident kitties who can enjoy life again.

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

Whisper is now looking for an indoor home, but will still need a great deal of patience from her new family.  We feel that she will come round if given time and ignored for a few weeks until her confidence returns.  So, if you are one of those very special humans who understands very timid cats we’d love to hear from you.

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