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. PLEASE NOTE: Bowler’s Cattery no longer allows open access viewing in order to protect staff and visitors alike from Covid-19 so you must make an appointment.

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

Our adoption fee varies from £60 for an adult cat and £70 for a kitten and is dependent on breed (cash please). This fee goes some way to offset 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.

mum-lucy-2 Lucy has been a wonderful mum to her 4 kittens who have all now been rehomed.  Her foster family have said that Lucy is a beautiful, gentle, loving and extremely cuddly young lady who has been a joy to have as a house guest.

Lucy will be neutered and vaccinated next week (12 to the 15th October) and will then be ready to go to live with her forever family.

If you are interested in adopting Lucy please send an email and we will send you our perfect match form by return.

Restrictions on rehoming

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

We have received an update from the National Society concerning the Corona Virus 25th March 2020 directive.   We have been advised that we are now able to rehome our animals in a very restricted way, in that potential adopters will have to send not only their completed perfect match from but videos or photos of their home and grant the branch permission to view their home on google’s street view.

This will protect our volunteers and adopters alike as our adoption process ideally involved face to face handovers and home visiting.

But, please note that the private boarding cattery is open by appointment only once your perfect match form and photos have been received.

Tootsie

Posted in Adopt a Cat | Comments Off

Tootsie is a lovely, black and white little girl who is a little shy at first but very friendly once she gets to know you.

She has been  having trouble with her ears and will need to visit the vet before she is rehomed due to a suspected Haematoma in her ear which prevents drops for ear mites reaching the right place.  Once this has been drained and healed she will be looking for her family again.
