Little Witch and Big Wizard

WITCH AND WIZARD
These irresistable young kittens are both from a farm with an abundance of outdoor cats. They came into foster care to help them through some health problems and have responded with great enthusiasm to their opportunity of becoming domestic pets. Big Wizard is a very fluffy black male, with a big head and a small tail. He is a softie, mellow and relaxed, happy to cuddle up and purr, and to sit around looking handsome - though he had to learn how to play! Little Witch is younger, a tiny dark tortoiseshell with wonderful facial markings - she is extremely affectionate, a really devoted lap cat. Both kittens are confident, playful and very easy to handle. They have overcome eye infections, sniffles and sneezes as they were treated in time to avoid any more serious health problems.

They are vaccinated and microchipped, although not yet neutered due to their young age.  Ideally, they should be homed to people who have plenty of time to cuddle and play with them, who will fully appreciate their very sociable and affectionate nature.

If you can offer a permanent loving home to 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 Witch and Wizard, 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 Gale, Breeze and Tempest

These three adorable kittens were born in a back garden to a stray mother and are now three to four months old. Gale is a female with tabby and white, Breeze is also female with black and white markings and Tempest, the male of the trio, is also black and white. 

GALE%44 BREEZE AND TEMPEST
At first, they were all reluctant to be handled, typical behaviour from the offspring of a feral mother, but they are now responding to strokes and cuddles and have become more relaxed with human contact. They enjoy playing and exploring and each has their own lovely personality. They have been vaccinated and microchipped, although not yet neutered due to their young age. Ideally, they should be homed to people who have the time and patience to continue gaining their trust and affection with lots of interactive play and stroking.

If you can offer a permanent loving home to any 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 Gale, Breeze and Tempest, and our Homing Officer will ring you back to arrange a home visit; or email us on enquiries@derbydistrictcp.org.uk 

Can you offer them the 'Forever' homes they need?

Can you cheer up Duggie and Lily?
LILY
Over the years, Derby and District Branch of Cats Protection has homed hundreds of cats and kittens. Most only stay for a few weeks before happily going to a new home. But some – the old, ugly, nervous, disabled and sickly – join a growing band of animals which nobody wants. Through no fault of their own, they are not chosen to be part of a family. Duggie and Lily find themselves in this category.

Their owner has been evicted and we are in a situation where these two cats are now homeless and need to be rehomed together as soon as possible. Lily (right) is a 10 year old black girl (with a few white hairs on her chest) who is so loving and affectionate. She’s all over you when you’re trying to do something and loves nothing better than sitting on your lap.

DUGGIEDuggie (left) is a 12 year old tabby and is the more independent of the two, although still very affectionate. Their photos do not do them justice - they’re certainly not as miserable as they look!

They would make excellent pets for someone who maybe has recently lost a cat and doesn’t want to start again with a kitten. They are both neutered, inoculated and microchipped. As they’ve lived all their lives as a pair, they must be homed together.
 
For more information on Duggie and Lily, please phone the Catline (voicemail) on 01332 206956 leave your name, telephone number and a short message saying that you’re calling about Duggie and Lily and our Homing Officer will ring you back or you can email us at enquiries@derbydistrictcp.org.uk - they're waiting for your call.

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.
