Santa Paws Appeal - Thank you

From all of us at Exeter Axhayes Adoption Centre, we would like to thank our supporters and friends for donating Christmas presents for our cats and kittens via our Santa Paws appeal. We thought we’d share a festive photo of our CCAs Di and Gemma with two of our cats Wilson and Bert. We launched our Santa Paws appeal back in November 2013; in its first year, it has been a huge success! We have received so many wrapped up Christmas gifts for our cats. We have enough to give each cat and kitten a present on Christmas Day morning.

We will be taking a break from our social networking sites for the Christmas Holidays! Our centre will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. In the event of an emergency, please contact your vet. We would also like to thank everyone for their support and generosity in 2013.
We would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year :-)

We have lots of wonderful oldies looking for loving homes!

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 is currently full of wonderful older cats looking for loving homes just in time for Christmas! Here are just a few of our oldies available for homing….

9 year old male black cat

Lenny is looking for a home where he can do all the things that cat’s love to do. He loves to be a bit of a free spirit, going out on adventures in the garden. He is also affectionate and homely when the mood takes him! Please give this chap the chance he so deserves as middle age is fastly approaching him and he does not want to get middle age spread stuck in this pen with no chance to exercise!!!!!!!!!

10 year old female dark tortoiseshell cat

Missy has a sad story to tell and we are unsure how happy an ending it will be without a very kind cat loving person like you adopting her. She was first notice as skin and bone living rough in Tesco car park, a kind worker there saw her plight and started feeding her and letting her sleep in her car when she was on shift. This has gone on for quite some time however the lady is due to retire and was worried sick what would happen to missy. Upon her entry here we have discovered that she is a mature cat with early renal disease. This means that’s she needs to be on a specific diet that is quite easy to source from the internet. That’s the easy part the hard part is finding someone willing to take her. We know she will be a lovely loyal companion who will just adore so home comforts at last. Please help.

15 year old female black cat

This gorgeous girl might be 15 years old but she still has plenty of life in her! She is very affectionate and lively and loves to play around outside (although a warm lap in the winter is hard to leave). Her previous owners had to move and couldn’t take her with them as they thought she would be very unhappy without any access to the outside. If you can offer Chard a home please don’t hesitate to ask about her today.

Boo Boo
9 year old female tabby cat

Boo Boo is an affectionate lap-cat who loves attention. She was brought to Axhayes when her owner had to move into a town and Boo Boo had been used to open spaces and no traffic. Her owner was trying to keep Boo Boo safe. If you have room in your heart for a lovely friendly lady, look no further!

12 year old male black cat

Jack is an affectionate and loving gentleman. He is certainly a lap cat who adores attention. His owner sadly died and Jack is devastated! He is very upset to be in here and would love to find a new caring family as soon as possible. If you want an amazing cat for company then Jack is the one!

9 year old female black cat

Popsin is a very sweet lady who is here because her owners were downsizing and she could not go with them. She is used to the quiet life, likes a cuddle and a lap to sit on as she is a very lovable cat. She doesn't wander far usually only in the house or garden. She would probably suit a quiet family who want to love an older cat.

If you would like to give one of our lovely oldies a loving forever home, please contact the centre on 01395 232377 or visit our website at Thank you.
