A timid twosome

mia and star 1Coming into care can be a traumatic experience for cats, and Mia and Star, who are the latest residents in Cats Protection Brighton and Districts outdoor pen, have so far been quite timid and a bit jumpy. Star (pictured above) in particular has taken a long time to become settled, although each day she becomes a little bit bolder. Continue reading

Pebble wants to play

Pebble has winning ways

Pebble arrived on New Year’s Eve as an urgent case and a little bit worse for wear. He had a wound on his tummy, probably from a cat fight. He has responded extremely well to Cats Protection care and is now making himself at home in his snug cat hotel room.

He is a really lovely boy winning over everyone who meets him and throws himself into play time with great enthusiasm. Continue reading

Betty is a black beauty

use this one

Betty, a sleek black beauty, came into Cats Protection care on 11 December 2017 and will be ready to rehome from Christmas Day.
She is a bit of a pampered puss and has her own monogrammed cushion and purple throw. Her super-glossy inky black fur and slightly rounded shape are indicators of how well she was looked after by her previous owner.
Until now, Betty has been an indoor cat, with some access to a balcony and a small walled garden in the past. We would like her new home to be one with access to the outdoors, where she can enjoy the fresh air and sunshine.
It will take her time to feel comfortable in her new surroundings. She has found it difficult to adapt to our admissions pen and seems anxious and confused at times. However, she is quite chatty.
Betty is very affectionate and loves to sit in a lap. She also likes to be stroked and will sleep on a bed. In her previous home, she was allowed to roam the house freely and found a number of favourite places to sleep!

Angel delight

IMG_0001 (1)

Angel is a Burmese mixed-breed beauty with incredibly soft fur and a very playful nature. The latest cat to come into Brighton & District Cat Protection care, she will be ready to rehome on 10 December.

Around five years old, Angel’s markings are very similar to a tortie point Burmese. Her fur is a warm cream colour with seal coloured. To finish off her good looks, she has beautiful pale blue eyes. The colour of her eyes indicates she is not a pure-bred Burmese.

Despite this, she has a very Burmese-like personality: confident, sociable, outgoing, lively and a little mischievous. She locked her fosterer out of part of the outdoor pen the first morning she arrived. It was possible she had climbed up and tampered with the lock!

Angel needs to be the only cat in a household as she wants the humans all to herself. At her previous home, she would stop the other family cats from coming in via the cat flap. She is very chatty and quite attention seeking.

Lola has kittenish charm

lola 1

Lola arrived at Cats Protection Brighton & Hove on 16 October and we expect her to be ready for her new home at the beginning of November. She is an adorable little lady who looks more like a kitten than her actual age of six.

Lola is pretty as a picture and her image could grace any biscuit tin, chocolate box or calendar. Her coat is an exotic mix of tabby, white and orange.

But she is not just pretty as a picture – she is also very affectionate with everyone she has met. She loves attention, climbing up for strokes, head bumps and cuddles. Anyone taking Lola into their family will need to have time to spare as this cutie is so hard to resist!

A winning Oscar

2017-10-03 15.36.29The most recent feline to enjoy the hospitality of our outdoor pen is Oscar, a chubby chap with a big personality.

Fosterer Teresa thinks he looks not dissimilar to the late, great Pavarotti, being smartly dressed in a tuxedo-like coat and a little on the large side!

Oscar arrived in our care on 19 September and initially was a little moody and depressed. He also frightened easily, hissing and baring his teeth from the safety of his cat hide. But this didn’t last long and he was soon coming forward for food and displaying his better characteristics.

He now happily potters around his pen and makes full use of his Cats Protection feline fort, which offers a variety of levels on which he can sit and observe the world around him.

Our vet and some blood tests have confirmed that Oscar is in good health. He does lack mobility, but this seems to be down to his weight only. He is on a weight management diet, which includes good quality wet food twice a day. His dry food is provided via a variety of feeding enrichment toys – he has to work to get the food!

Now he is a little lighter, happier, more mobile and very much friendlier. He will occasionally hiss when someone comes into the vicinity but as soon as he realises there is no danger he turns into a real sweetie, accepting lots of strokes.

Oscar will benefit from living with someone who is committed to help him with his weight management plan and to give him love and attention with the occasional playtime to keep him active.
