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.

Cissy and Ada

Posted in Adopt a Cat, Monochrome Cats | Comments Off
cissy-and-ada Cissy and Ada are just 13 weeks old and have been left on the shelf.   They came to the branch to find their forever family as older kittens without their mum.   Because there have been so many little kittens to choose from these lovely, but shy, girls have been overlooked.  If you are patient and give them the time they need to become more confident they will make lovely house guests.

As they are happy to keep themselves amused they would suit someone who works during the week.  Being older kittens they are less likely to get themselves into difficult situations around the home and will be happy to be left with some dry food as long as you are around to feed them mornings and evenings with something delicious out of a pouch or a tin.

If you would like to meet them please contact the branch as they are currently in foster care.

misty-mum-to-the-flintstones Here is little Misty who has been a great mum to our Flintstone family.   She is not much more than a kitten herself and is now looking for her perfect family.

Little Misty would look at home in the palace of an ancient Egyptian Queen, but all she really wants is a loving family who will treat her well.   At least one of her kittens will grow up to look as regal as Mum.

The Flintstone Gang – All reserved

fred-kitten Meet Fred, Wilma, Betty, Barney and little Pebbles who are just 8 weeks old and have now started their vaccinations and have been microchipped.   Being typical kittens they are full of fun and mischief and will need a home where there is someone around most of the time while they are so young as they need 4 or 5 meals each day and can very easily get themselves into difficulties exploring their new surroundings.

They are looking forward to finding their very own families and would love to be rehomed in pairs if possible.   Their mum would also like a home soon too.

To meet one of the Flintstones please send an email and we will send you our perfect match form.

The sports’ team kitties

Posted in Adopt a Cat, Monochrome Cats | Comments Off

ellie-simmonds-kitty Meet our sports’ team kittens and mum.   This is what their foster parents say about them.  “Mum and kittens were found abandoned behind Decathalon so we decided to give them sporting names. We think there are 5 girls and a boy.

NB: Victoria, Mo and Nicola have had lots of interest and have been reserved.

We named mum Jessica Ennis Hill (Jess). She is a lovely cat and settled in immediately letting us pet her within a few hours of fostering her. She has been a lovely pet as she is happy with all of the visitors to the house, letting them stroke and brush her, she is confident and friendly, has let us pick her up , there has been no hissing or scratching and she will make a lovely pet with a calm and friendly nature.

All the kittens will be ready to go to their new homes in a couple of weeks’ time and mum, who is only young herself, will need a family too.

To meet one of the team please send an email and we will send you our perfect match form.

 

 

 

 

Dexter

Posted in Adopt a Cat | Comments Off
dexter-in-his-foster-home One of our local vets called to ask if we could help Dexter almost 3 months ago.   He had been found with a terrible neck wound either from an accident or more likely because he had been in a fight and his wound had become infected, developing into an abscess which had burst revealing all the underlying structures in his neck.

With care from our fosterer and ongoing treatment from the veterinary surgeons and nursing staff he has recovered well.  He is now living with new foster family in their own home so that he gets used to living with a family and lots of coming and going.

If you would like to meet Dexter who is in foster care please send an email for our perfect match form or text or ring the branch on 07954122481 to make an appointment.

 

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.

If you could offer this elderly gentleman his forever home please contact the branch to ask about our elderly animal adoption scheme.

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