We currently have dozens of felines in its care who are all desperate to find a home.
Branch volunteers are now calling on potential owners to celebrate the most loving day of the year by finding a new pet.
Volunteer Louisa Bird said: “Just like humans, cats are individuals with different quirks and personalities and we have cats which would suit all sorts of people.
“You can never predict which cat a prospective owner will bond with – sometimes people go for cats with similar personalities to their own, other times is definitely a case of ‘opposites attract’. Either way, there is no denying that cats make fantastic pets. They are loyal, friendly, funny and loving – so what better time of year to pick a new best friend than around Valentine’s Day?”
One cat current looking for his ‘purrfect partner’ is Alonzo. This dear little cat was brought into Cats Protection care after being handed in by a cat-loving member of the public who had been feeding him for a while. Having been unable to trace his owners, the charity is now looking for a loving home for handsome Alonzo.
He is estimated at two years old, and is black and white shorthaired. He can be a little nervous at first, but his foster carer feels he will settle down once he is in a permanent, loving home. The ideal home for him would be one without very young children or dogs, but he may be OK living with other cats.
If you would like to offer a cat a new home this Valentine’s Day, please fill out our homing enquiry form – we look forward to hearing from you!
