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!

The 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.
Our latest feline looking for a new home is Doris, a quirky seven year old girl. As you can see, she has a lovely long coat, which is very soft to the touch. Her markings are striking, including a little big and a fetching moustache!
Doris likes a routine, but has an endearing nature and unique personality. She is a little bit shy and would probably enjoy a quiet home environment. Once she gets to know you, she is friendly and vocal. She likes a fuss and will sit next to you on the sofa and have a chat.
She loves food and playing with her catnip toys or a piece of string. She equally enjoys looking out the window, watching the world go by. She would also suit a home with a garden.

Our most recent cats up for adoption are brother and sister Bailey and Boo. Confident and easy going, they get along with each other very well and we are looking for a new owner who can take them both.
Bailey, a ginger long-hair, is a very sweet and handsome boy, the bigger and more confident of the two. He is curious and quite intelligent. He has already worked out how to open his fosterer’s kitchen cupboards! He follows his fosterer around and will curl up on any available lap.
Boo, by contrast, is a little more timid, but very affectionate. A beautiful tortoiseshell long-hair, she loves being brushed. She is very gentle and will also settle on your lap.
Bailey and Boo are happy in each other’s company and are often found curled up together or grooming each other. This is why we’d like to rehome them together. Bailey has met a toddler and took it in his stride, although Boo kept her distance.
Newly up for adoption via Cats Protection Brighton is Beau, a big beautiful boy that you just want to cuddle. He came to us via the Cat Guardians service, which aims to give owners peace of mind that their cat will be cared for whatever happens. Beau’s owner has moved to a nursing home so was no longer able to care for him. Continue reading
Tallulah arrived at Cats Protection on 7 June and was greeted by two of the local boy cats who came to catch a glimpse of the tortie tootsie in her pen. Tallulah played hard to get, greeting them with a hiss and some serious tail thrashing.
One the second evening, Tallulah gave her fosterer a bit of a fright, seemingly disappearing into thin air. On closer inspection she was playing hard to find, perched on the top of the door into her sleeping area. A few days in at her temporary outdoor pen residence and she now spends most her time on one of the more comfortable custom built perches in the pen or on a human lap when she gets the chance.
Tallulah is a beautiful, sassy young lady and a bit of a flirt, responding as she does when her name is called. Think Jodie Foster’s character of Tallulah in the film Bugsy Malone and you’ll get the idea!
Keep an eye on Cats Protection’s Brighton & Hove website if you think Tallulah the tortie is the girl for you. She will be looking for a permanent home very soon.
Bob is the first guest at Brighton & Hove Cats Protection’s outdoor fostering pen (see our story here). Teresa Dee, Bob’s foster carer tells us Bob’s story.
Our very own street cat, an all over ginger boy with a touch of white at the end of his tail. Bob was our first guest at the cat hotel checking in on 8 May. Continue reading
