Some of our Golden Oldies

Did you know that a 10 year old cat is only equivalent to a middle aged person? Cats of this age are very homely, love company and are often real lap cats. Many Cats live well into their late teens and even more are enjoying life well into their early twenties. That’s like being 100 in human years – but, alas, they don’t get a telegram from the queen. Just hopefully a loving home with you…Why not consider adopting an older cat?

Our Oldies section of the centre has been quiet and half empty for a few weeks. We’ve been lucky and haven’t had too much trouble finding homes for them. Now we have lots of new oldies filling these pens and they are all looking for new homes. Our Oldies section is a row of ten pens very close to reception, when potential adopters visit the centre these are the first cats they will see.

Here are just a few of our oldies available for homing….

Princess Snuggles 12 years old - Princess Snuggles one of the cutest old girls. As you may have guessed from her name, she is very affectionate and love snuggles. Sadly this adorable cat was found wondering the streets with no home to keep her safe and warm. She has a lot of love to give, if you are looking for an affectionate and loving cat, Princess Snuggles is the cat for you.

Amber 9 years old - Amber is one of our longest stayers on oldies; she is currently in her main rehoming corridor. She is a big girl with a big heart. She came to us back in January after her owner got sick and couldn’t look after her anymore. When Amber came to us she was overweight. She needed to go on a strict diet and have lots of exercise to get back to her former trim self. Which isn’t easy in a cattery environment, although she has managed to lose some weight, we are pleased for her. On sunny days we make sure she goes out into our outside playpen for some exercise. Amber isn’t keen on other cats, so she would need to be homed on her own. Please give Amber a chance.

Marmalade 12 years old - Marmalade is our only male cat on oldies at the moment. When Marmalade's owner became ill he worried so much that he started over-grooming. This worried his owner, and in the end he was going to be put to sleep. Luckily he came to us, and he is gettting better. Marmalade is very sweet - real gentle giant - and would like a nice new quiet home where he can relax and be a devoted companion again.

Florette 12 years old – Florette is another one of our long stayers who has been with us since March. She came to Axhayes when her owners moved house and sadly couldn’t take her with them. Florette is a fabulous cat, she is looking for a comfortable home with a garden she can sit in and explore in. She is looking for someone who will love her forever..  

Maddie 10 years old - Maddie has been with us since March. She came to us when her owners moved house and their child developed an allergy. She spent her whole life with her beloved family and she adored all her creature comforts. She is an absolute sweetie, she loves affectionate on her terms and even at her age she still enjoys chasing toys and playing. She likes to stay close to home if anything she will spend the majority of her time in the house.

Polly 15 years old - URGENT: PLEASE HELP POLLY! – Polly is currently our oldest cat on our oldest section. She is a very sweet little cat who really deserves a chance of happiness in her twilight years. She is very affectionate and loving. All she needs a quiet loving home where she can spent the rest of her days and a comfy lap to curl up on. Is that with you? We really are desperate to home her as soon as possible.
