Occasionally, for a variety of reasons, we are unable to home a cat. These cats, known as pensioners, become permanent residents at the Rescue and may be sponsored. All are housed, usually in family groups, in large pens. Other cats have smaller pens and are free to roam by day in the large garden.
Pensioners for Sponsorship
Keira & Lucy
These two sisters share a pen with Blanco and Smudge. They love each other, but are very shy. They enjoy their food and to snuggle in warm beds.
NT just appeared in the garden one day. He is a very friendly cat and was soon accepting several meals a day. He moved into the house and was soon sleeping on beds. Now very tubby he is well known down Chapel Street. Some people know him as Bertie and he is happy to accept a meal in anyone’s house. He is a big character and his name NT stands for Naughty Tabby.
Coco was in very poor condition when she came to us. We had her investigated at the vet and she was found to be diabetic. She has since gained weight and has found a new spark of life. She has her own pen that she sleeps in at night, but is free to wander around the garden during the day. She is often to be found sleeping in the front garden.
SPOT & STRIPE
Spot and Stripe came to the rescue as kittens with their mother and brothers and sisters. They had a nasty virus and were the only kittens to survive. They have been left with some health problems, but grew up to be large and happy cats. They live in a large pen and are set free in the garden during the day. These brothers are good friends and are often asleep together in the same bed.
Tyler is a very shy cat. Often the pen he lives in appears to be empty, because he is hiding inside a pillow case or under a blanket. When he learns to trust a person though, he is very friendly and fussy. He is a large boy and has a lovely soft coat. He lives with his sisters Tina and Tara.
Blanco came to the rescue as a large kitten from Tipton. He was very wild at first, but after becoming ill and being nursed back to health, he decided that humans are actually alright. He is now very fussy. He likes to eat biscuits and demands to be brushed daily.
Smudge is Blanco’s sister. She didn’t tame to quite the same extent as Blanco. Although she pretends to be shy and hisses, she doesn’t actually mind when she is touched. She is very active and is always climbing about the pen, whereas Blanco likes to rest most of the time.
Toby is the only tabby cat living in a large group of black and black and white cats. He lived alone briefly, but was totally unfazed as several cats were introduced into his large pen. He is less friendly with humans now that he has seven cat friends. He now prefers to look down on the people looking after him from which ever high shelf or piece of play equipment he’s lying on.
LOULOU & LENNIE
These two are both large cats. They are playful and take a lively interest in anything happening in their pen. Lenny always dismantles any box or plaything that is put in their house. He also likes to eat any treats that are offered before his friends can get to them.
Olivia is a large black cat who is quite friendly and likes to be stroked. She lives in the Wildmoor pen with several friends.
Sooty lives in a group of eight cats. She is shy, but friendly. A small cat with a very glossy coat
Suzie is a handsome cat. She lives happily in her pen with a group of friends. Sometimes she is friendly and enjoys a stroke, but sometimes she pretends to be scared and runs away.
Emmie is a friendly torti who after trying to find a home for more than two years has become a garden cat. She lives in our cosy store room and goes out to rampage in the garden during the day. She is a very happy fat cat. You can read her story by clicking on the picture.
