These rescue cats in Dacorum are looking for their forever homes
Could you adopt one of these cats, currently being looked after by Cats Protection?
Chester, Sophie and Bilbo have all come into the charity's care due to changes in their owners' circumstances, and are now looking for new homes.
If you could offer one of these cats a new home, call 03453 711851.
Four-year-old Chester is a British Blue. He is warm, calm and affectionate, and while not a lap cat would sit by you for strokes and cuddles, and enjoys having people company. His ideal home would be with an older family, older children and as the only pet - and where someone is happy to give him time for a bit of play in the daytime and be there for him.
British Blues have been described as the 'dignified Winston Churchill creates of the cat world' - they will be there for you, like to keep their paws on the ground. Chester does tend to be a bit vocal when he wants something, so people who don't mind a bit of 'cat chat' would be ideal. He would also need weekly grooming to keep his lovely coat in tip-top condition.
Chester loves to be outside but definitely not near main/fast roads as he is used to a rural location. Cats Protection is looking for a home for him where he can enjoy the outside without any worries. Access to the outside will not be rushed and would be after his settling in period and then a slow introduction to the outside.
Sophie is a beautiful mature little lady who is now looking for her forever home. She has come Cats Protection's care as sadly her owners were moving into sheltered accommodation and she couldn't go with them. This little lady has been very sad about the move but is starting to adjust. She doesn’t like loud noises and if stressed will find a place to hide, coming out on her own when she is ready. She is slowly getting braver and more confident and is really a clean, sweet friendly cat. She likes being brushed and her back being stroked and now comes to greet her foster carer and will stand on her lap for a fuss.
Sophie needs a quiet home with maybe a single person or a couple; no children, who will love and make her feel safe again. She would like to be the only cat so she can get all the attention on offer. She would like a secure garden, away from main/through roads. Access to the outside will not be rushed and would be after her settling in period and then a slow introduction to the outside. This beautiful girl deserves a second chance of a loving home.
Bilbo is a lovely, gently boy who is approximately seven years old. Though initially he can be very shy, once he gets to know you he is a very loving and playful cat. He loves chasing strings and feather toys and when tired out, will snuggle up next to you, purring away.
Cats Protection feels that Bilbo will suit a mature family with older children who can provide a loving and patient home to help him settle in. He can be wary of new people and loud noises so would prefer a quieter environment, as the only pet.
Though he is quite happy and content to be an indoor cat he may eventually like to venture outside for the odd walk with you but in a secure garden away from main/through roads as he is not road savvy; more a rural environment. Access to the outside will not be rushed and would be after his settling in period and then a slow introduction to the outside. Bilbo is on a special diet which he will need to always be on.
