Adopt a cat

Nice to meet you, I'm Wizzy
WIZZY
This irresistable young kitten is from a farm with an abundance of outdoor cats. He was brought into foster care with his sister but, unfortunately, she died soon after and he is now alone and looking for that special home. Despite this, he is very playful and has responded with great enthusiasm to his opportunity to become a domestic pet. 

He is a very fluffy black male with a big head and a small tail. He is a softie, mellow and relaxed. He is deeply affectionate and happy to cuddle up, purr and give head pumps. He is also happy to sit around looking handsome! He is confident and very easy to handle, especially at the vets. 

He is vaccinated and microchipped although not yet neutered due to his young age. Ideally, he should be homed to a family with children who have plenty of time to cuddle and play with him and who will fully appreciate his very sociable and affectionate nature. Whoever adopts him will be very lucky indeed.

Can you offer Wizzy his 'forever' home? If you can offer a permanent loving home to this beautiful cat and would like to find out more about him, contact our Cat Line on 01332 206956 (voicemail) leaving your name, address and telephone number, mention you are calling about Wizzy, and our Homing Officer will ring you back to arrange a home visit; or email us on enquiries@derbydistrictcp.org.uk 

Hi there, we're Jenny, Jess and Jim

JENNYThese three adorable kittens are four months old and waiting to leave foster care to settle into a 'forever' home. Jenny (left) is a strikingly beautiful girl, white with lovely tabby markings especially on her face, she is meek and gentle, and a picture of peaceful bliss and contentment when she’s all cuddled up. 

Her sister Jess (right) is mostlyJESS black with a distinctive white stripy nose, she is more adventurous and playful, and is very attached to JIMJim (below left), the male of the trio, who is also black with white markings and a lovely half-moustache, and is the bold and confident leader of the pack and very communicative. 

They were born in a back garden to a stray mother and so, typically for the offspring of a feral mother, they were scared and reluctant to be handled at first. Now they are very confident in their familiar surroundings, still somewhat evasive about being picked up but constantly improving with the regular offering of delicious food and treats. Once held, they are very responsive to strokes and cuddles, quick to relax and to enjoy the loving attention of their human companion. They are playful and curious and each has its own lovely personality. They have been vaccinated, microchipped and neutered. Ideally, they should be homed to people who have the time and patience to build on the foundations of trust and affection that they have achieved already, with lots of interactive play, treat-time and stroking. They needn’t be homed together but it would be lovely if Jess and Jim could remain as a ‘couple’.

Can you offer them the 'forever' homes they're seeking? If you can offer a permanent loving home to either or all of these beautiful cats and would like to find out more about them, contact our Cat Line on 01332 206956 (voicemail) leaving your name, address and telephone number, mentioning you are calling about Jenny, Jess and Jim, and our Homing Officer will ring you back to arrange a home visit; or email us on enquiries@derbydistrictcp.org.uk 

Hi, pleased to meet you - I'm the beautiful Bella
BELLA
Bella is looking for a new home. Bella means beautiful and she certainly is. She is a gorgeous black girl about five years old. She is neutered, inoculated, flea’d and wormed and, of course, microchipped. Her coat is like velvet and although she’s been living outdoors, she’s extremely fit and healthy. It’s thought that whoever owned her has moved house and just didn’t bother to take her with them. Can you believe that? Her volunteer fosterer certainly can’t as she is so affectionate.  

She's a very loving puss who just wants to be petted all the time. She's a natural hunter of mice and rats so a home in the countryside would be perfect for her – definitely not an indoor cat. So she would certainly earn her keep if you kept chicken or rabbit food around.  

Can you give her a 'forever' home? For more information on Bella, please phone the Catline (voicemail) on 01332 206956 leave your name, telephone number and a short message saying that you’re calling about Bella and our Homing Officer will ring you back or you can or email us at enquiries@derbydistrictcp.org.uk  

Challenge Cats.
Each year, the Branch takes in many rescue cats and kittens into our foster homes. Some of these cats may have been abandoned, been living as strays or due to personal circumstances their owners are no longer able to care for them. Without any exceptions, our foster homes are always full. As soon as the cats in our care are fit and healthy enough for re-homing, we pass them to the Cats Protection Adoption Centre at Long Lane (Telephone 01332 824950), where many cats are awaiting a new home.

Rural and Farm Placements Eagerly Wanted
.
The Derby and District Branch covers a wide and diverse area from the inner city areas of Derby City to the rural settings surrounding. We have a number of cats which need to be re-homed to rural areas such as a farm, small holding or a home in a rural setting. These cats are not domesticated and though some of them may come to trust humans more and more it would not be in their best interests to home them in an urban setting. They would be ideally suited to a rural home where they could live in an outdoor shelter and even work as 'mousers' but with an owner feeding them and looking out for their welfare. These cats would all be neutered, treated for fleas, wormed and inoculated against flu and enteritis. If you are interested in homing such a group of cats, please phone our Cat-Line number 01332 206956 and leave a message and we will get in touch to discuss your needs and answer any queries. In the meantime, you may find the Cats Protection leaflet on Farm Cats useful.
