Featured Cats For Adoption
Christina is about 6 years old and has been returned to CPL care because she was toileting inappropriately in her new home and her new owners were unable to resolve this. She was originally surrendered for similar problems which started after her owner became pregnant.
Christina is shy with strangers but friendly once she gets to know you. She is very easily stressed, so she will best suit a quiet and calm adult home with no other pets. Ideally we would like her to go to a lifestyle block or similar where she has space to avoid challenging situations.
Christina has had problems with cystitis and over-grooming, also stress-related. She is on calming medication and this may need to be continued while she settles into a new home.
Biddy is about 7 years old and has been returned to CPL care after two happy years as her owner has passed away.
Biddy is shy with strangers but loving and smoochy once she knows you. She has enjoyed being thoroughly cossetted by her owner who lived alone, and will best suit another quiet home where she will be a lovely companion.
Biddy is terrified of dogs, so her new owner will need to resist the lure of a canine companion. She is currently on medication for back pain and this will probably need to be continued after adoption.
Minx is about 9 years old and was surrendered to CPL because she was spraying. This was probably due to the stresses of a busy home with dogs.
Minx blossomed in foster care to become a happy and friendly girl. She is lovely with us at the cattery but kicked up a mighty fuss at the vet clinic where it took several people to restrain her.
Beautiful Minx will suit a quiet adult home with no other pets. She will make a fun companion for an experienced owner, but vet trips are likely to remain a challenge.
