The Perth Branch of Cats Protection was established way back in May 2000 and since then have expanded and now have 17 different pens in 13 different locations and rehome over 300 cats a year. As a result of this set-up, people looking for cats are not able to visit all of their cats at once, so they operate a bit like a dating agency and try to match up prospective owners with suitable cats.
We've been showing a lot of love for dogs recently at Small City (check out our dog-friendly gallery and our review of Puppies and Prosseco), but we've still got plenty left for cats! Our gallery photographer Jo Gostling has two meownificent felines, Nutmeg and Eddie, that she adopted from Cats Protection. We thought she was the purrfect purrson to take snaps of the gorgeous cats currently available for adoption.
If you are looking to give a cat a home, be aware that not all the cats are young, pretty, cute or friendly but they have a lot to offer and deserve a loving home. Before going to a new home every Cat Protection cat is: Neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, health-checked and insured. There is a £60 adoption fee per cat and they may carry out a home visit to ensure you are matched with the perfect cat. Anyway, enough procatstination! Let's meet the cats!
Friendly Gracie is a mature, loving cat looking for a home. Because she is an elderly lady, Cats Protection will meet the cost of any future vets bills.
Abbie would ideally like to find a new home with her brother Banjo. She is seeking an experienced and patient owner who can offer her the time and space she needs to help her confirm that actually, humans aren't too bad after all!
Banjo would ideally would like to find a home with his sister Abbie. They are seeking a loving and patient home - Banjo is more outgoing than his sister but can still be a little timid until he gets to know you - then he is very friendly and absolutely loves cuddles and being stroked!
Charles is a 12-year-old boy who needs a new home with outdoor access away from roads. He's gentle and friendly, with a love of lying on beds, and would probably prefer a home without small children, dogs or other cats.
As he is the least timid of 3, he would rather go with 1 of his more timid brothers, for moral support, of course. He is ready to join a very patient and fairly quiet family who will be rewarded greatly with lots of playtime.
Due to being a little shy Tag would rather be re-homed with 1 of his brothers (Rag). He is already showing signs of having a very sweet nature which will shine through given a little time to settle with the right family.
Bobtail is a gorgeous tabby boy with a very calm but shy nature, so would rather be re-homed with his big brave brother Rag. Given time and lots of patience he will be a very loving devoted boy for the right family.
Pumpkin and Treacle
Pumpkin and Treacle are a closely bonded brother-and-sister pair. They're nine months old, get on very well with small children, and love petting, laps and family life. They're not fussy eaters, good at using their litter trays and up-to-date with vaccinations and anti-pest treatments.
Banjo is more outgoing than his sister Abbie but can still be a little timid until he gets to know you - then he is very friendly and absolutely loves cuddles and being stroked!
Nutmeg & Eddie
Definitely not for adoption! We've included Meg and Ed as a success story, as they were adopted by Jo from Cats Protection Perth nearly 10 years ago and live happily and healthily with her to this day!!!
