Kate is about 9 years old and was surrendered to CPL with her mother Lilly (already adopted) when their owner went into care.
Kate is a very shy girl who has spent her whole adult life overshadowed by her more confident mama. She is just beginning to find her feet but, while she is friendly and outgoing with staff at the start of the day, once the cattery starts to get busy she retreats to her favourite hideout and will not be budged.
Kate will blossom in a quiet adult home where she is the only pet. She needs a special new owner committed to gaining her confidence and bringing her out of her shell.
Barbara is about 9 years old and came to CPL when her owner went into care.
Barbara has already been with us for some months. On arrival she needed surgery for a painful eye condition; while recovering from that she lost weight and was diagnosed with an overactive thyroid. This required further surgery and a lengthy recovery period. She is now back to good health and has been cleared for adoption.
Barbara is a friendly, confident cat with a big personality who has won the hearts of staff and volunteers during her stay with us. She is looking for a loving home with no other pets where she can spend her well-earned retirement being thoroughly spoilt. She has a penchant for sausage rolls.
Toluk is about 11 years old and came into CPL care when her owner moved to a new apartment where pets are not allowed. This is her second time with CPL, she was adopted from us in 2012 (and was called Precious then).
Toluk is friendly and confident with a little bit of “tortitude” and will suit a quiet adult home. Her unusual name comes from a type of currency made from turtle shell.
Adopting an older cat can be very rewarding and they make great companions. As they are less active they tend to spend more time indoors and are less likely to get lost or injured. They are particularly suitable for owners who are themselves less active and/or spend most of their time at home.
