Understanding Our Cats Behaviour

Trying to help the cats in our care

Sandy - highly intelligent boy who is bored and sad.
Dealing with so many cats in one place you see many personalities and characters. Not all cats settle into cattery life immediately and these cats need extra TLC. It can be a stressful environment especially for the cat that dislikes other cats. The cats in our care have lost their home, been parted from their owner and struggle to understand why they have been left at CP. People cats – those cats that have had a very close relationship with an owner cat become depressed leading to a change in their behaviour.  They can become introverted and unresponsive to the staff. Other cats will feel insecure and frightened being surrounded by lots of other cats leading to frustration at not being able to get away.
Both behaviours require patience and our dedicated staff and volunteers to spend quality time with these cats to ensure their stay with us is as comfortable as possible. Our vision is a world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs.  Can you offer a home for one of our lonely cats and give them the love they need.

Sylvester - larger than life amusing cheeky chap like his namesake. Loves to play in his tunnels but unhappy about being confined.

Ralphie - stunning looking cat but he is upset and confused about being at CP. He is stressed and frustrated and needs understanding owner.

Oscar is an adventurous lad who loves chasing and playing, he would make a good hunter. He enjoys company but is desperate to get back to nature. Oscar would suit a home with space or a stables/nursery where he can have shelter, food and companionship.

Too young to be put to sleep!

Please help us find Indy a home,

Indy came into the centre for rehoming about a week ago as his owner unfortunately could not take him when she had to move home.  At only 2yrs old Indy is a sweet and friendly boy who has come into care with his friend Quincy.
We are looking for a special outdoor home which could be a stables or a nursery where Indy can just enjoy his freedom but still have companionship, food and care and sheltered accommodation.
We were advised that Indy had been in a car accident and unbeknown to us when he arrived he was also suffering from incontinence as a consequence of this injury. As Indy has lost the control of his tail, it is now a hindrance to him so the vets are going to remove his tail which is the kindest thing to do for him.
We have our fingers crossed for Indy that removing his tail may help give him a better quality of life and a chance of a future and a kind loving home. This will stop him dragging it behind him, causing any more possible injuries and also will be a lot more hygienic. This is a very special loving cat and when he has put all his traumas in his young short life behind him the person that adopts this cat will have a wonderful companion.
How can I help?
We are looking for people to make a donation, whether is 10p or £10 towards Indy’s operation and after care.
Once we are happy Indy can be rehomed please check out website or give us a call for more information.
At this time Indy is in with his friend Quincy to keep him company, it would be nice if Indy and Quincy can be rehomed together but we understand that they may have to be homed separately though.
We feel at such a young age and as such a adorable cat Indy has a lot to live for!
