Don't overlook the golden oldies as pets

Misty is an eight-year-old rag doll cat who is sadly looking for a new home after her owner died.

She has been very unsettled by the loss of her owner, but she is settling in kennels now.

We’d like to find her a quiet home as an only pet with someone who wants a companion, someone to chat to and chat back.

She will need time to settle in a new home, but we are sure a strong bond will soon form.

It is very sad when older cats come in as they often get overlooked for younger models. Rose is once such cat that came in as a stray with her coat in very poor condition. A bit of warmth, good food and a brush has worked wonders.

She’s a friendly girl, with a super purr and so much to give.

Older cats can be difficult to re-home, but when they have a disability that is multiplied. Heidi is a nice girl, tabby and loving. Heidi has a form of cerebral palsy, but it does not stop her enjoying life to the full.

In kennels it is largely under control, but any stress does exacerbate it so a new home will need to give her time to settle.

Flynn is a two to three-year-old small lurcher/whippet type. He is a fun energetic boy, with lots of energy. He walks well on lead, although can be a bit all over the place at times.

Lacey is a larger lurcher, a lovely light fawn brindle and white. She is very loving and enjoys the company of humans. She walks well on the lead and loves to play ball, and can even throw and catch a ball herself if you aren’t around to help.

If you would like a smaller pet, we have guineas, rabbits and a hamster looking for a new home.
