Cats’ Protection offers friends

Montrose and Brechin Cats Protection has asked the Review to thank all those who supported them last year with donations, homing, vet treatment, etc.

The branch has a number of cats still looking for homes at the beginning of 2012. The majority of them are mature cats (not over the hill but always overlooked) hoping for some comfort in their later years.

For instance, there is Rosie - a lovely tortie girl who came into care when she was found living as a stray. She would like a home with a safe garden and would prefer to be the only cat in the family. Poppy, a mischievous, fluffy tabby; Sasha, an affectionate, food loving white female; and Ramin and Paws, a devoted, friendly pair; are other felines hoping for homes.

Older cats make fantastic companions. They tend to stay closer to home, and like nothing better than to curl up on your lap. With cats usually living well into their late teens or even until age 20 or more, an older cat of eight or 10 still has many years of life ahead of it.

As with cats of any age being looked after at the branch they have been examined by a veterinary surgeon, been vaccinated against flu, enteritis and feline leukaemia , treated against fleas, roundworm and tapeworm, and any sick cats have been blood tested for FIV and FeLV and it has been ensured that they are neutered. If you can offer a home to a mature (or any age) moggy please call the branch on 08453 712 738.
