Marmalade and Garfield are two dear gentle boys around a year old, who were unwanted by their previous owners. They arrived at the shelter in a very traumatised state but what they have been through in the past to have caused this we have no idea. However it has now become apparent that they are very loving cats although Garfield can be a bit more timid than this brother. The cats are both ginger & white with very slightly fluffy fur. Marmalade and Garfield could live with sensible and gentle older children, but not a dog; we are not yet sure about another cat. Marmalade and Garfield are only looking for a new home together.
Turpin is a really lovely white and black boy who is around 4 years old. He was a stray but he is a friendly cat who is also quite chatty. Turpin does not like dogs, but he seems fine with other cats and could also live with older children.
Smudge is a lovely friendly boy who is three years old. His previous owner has very reluctantly given him up for adoption as she is having to go into temporary accommodation. Smudge is apparently fine with other cats and older children, but he would not like to live with a dog.
Thomas is a large chunky boy who was a stray. He is around 4-5 years old. He is a rather nervous cat who will initially hiss at you in fear, but he can be stroked if you are willing to crouch on the floor as he hides in the corner of his pen behind his bed if anyone is around. The photo opportunity was a pure fluke! We are sure that Thomas will eventually be a gorgeous friendly boy - but it may take some time. Thomas would not be suitable to live with children or a dog; but he seems fine with other cats.
Update - Thomas is now in a pen where he can’t hide so he can be properly stroked, although he is still very nervous. But as the new photo of him shows, he is enjoying the good food at the shelter. We believe Thomas has been cruelly treated in the past and it has become apparent that he doesn’t like some men. It may take considerable time for Thomas to be a loving and totally trusting cat but we are confident that the right special home for him is out there somewhere.
