Please call 01905 821272 (Option 2) if you think you can provide a loving home

All of our cats are neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped, and given flea & worming treatment before adoption. Most of these cats have been rescued by RSPCA Inspectors or found abandoned and wandering the streets. Our animals are moving in and out of our care on a daily basis, as such the featured animals on these pages do not represent the full extent of animals in our care and sometimes we are unable to post some of our animals online.

EXPERIENCED CAT FOSTERERS WANTED


Are you an experienced cat fosterer - particularly with pregnant mums and kittens?

This year there appears to be no slow-down in the amount of pregnant cats coming into our care and, with our cattery and foster homes all currently full, we are looking for someone who can join our team of dedicated volunteer fosterers.

Due to the demands of caring for pregnant cats and kittens we do need someone who has knowledge and experience of this; ideally we are looking for someone who has a track record of fostering rescue cats.

If you think you could help, please send an email, detailing your experience, to geraldine@rspcaworcester.org.uk


HOMES FOR KITTENS WANTED


We always have kittens either in our care or due to come in to us for adoption, even if they are not currently advertised on our website.

 If you are thinking of adopting a kitten then please complete a Perfect Match form (link above) and email it to our staff animalcentrestaff@rspcaworcester.org.uk - we will keep your application on file and, as and when kittens become available, we will contact you. 


ALTERNATIVE HOMES NEEDED


We are always on the look out for alternative, rural homes which can provide an outdoor lifestyle for cats who have not been properly socialised with humans, where they are able to live more independently from people whilst still having the security of shelter, regular meals and veterinary care should they become injured or unwell. These homes must allow cats to roam freely without being confined and provide a sheltered environment where they can eat and sleep.

Some types of homes they may like to live at might include, but are not limited to, stables, farms, gardens (with outbuildings), garden centres etc.

You might consider yourself more of a 'guardian' than the owner of these cats but, in the same way that people enjoy feeding and helping the wildlife they live alongside, caring for one of these cats and allowing them to live independently yet safely can actually be very rewarding.

If you can give one of these cats their second chance and are able to offer them suitable accommodation and commit to their care, then please do get in touch - these kinds of homes are very much sought after and needed! You can email us at animalcentrestaff@rspcaworcester.org.uk or give us a call on 01905 821272 (option 2).

*Please note that all cats will be neutered, chipped and health checked prior to leaving our care.*


CATS FOR ADOPTION

Stirling

2-5 years / Male / Domestic Shorthair

Stirling came in to the Centre from a hoarding situation, where his owner had too many animals to cope with.

Stirling had obviously had to fight for food; this was apparent from the scratch scars on his face. Even now it is clear when we put his meals down for him that he is wary that we may try to take his food back off him. While he eats he is uncomfortable being watched and is constantly looking around, suspicious of it being taken away.

At first he was very shut-down and unresponsive and would hide away in his bed. He has progressed greatly since being in our care and now sits out at the front of his pen taking in everything going on around him. It appears that he wants to interact but he is clearly still very conflicted and sometimes he will swipe if he becomes overwhelmed and feels crowded.

We feel that Stirling has come as far as he can in a cattery environment and that what he now really needs is a home where he can continue to heal mentally.

Stirling needs somewhere where he can come around at his own pace and eventually we are hopeful that he will learn to trust people.

We do think that Stirling may benefit being in a home with other cats and that this may help improve his confidence. He has been very keen to interact with the other cats in the cattery and the interactions we have seen have all been very positive. We are not sure how he would feel about dogs though and we would insist upon an adult-only home. 

If you can offer him a loving home, please give us a call on 01905 821272 (option 2) or email us a perfect match form to animalcentrestaff@rspcaworcester.org.uk.


Dotty

3 years / Female / Domestic Shorthair 


If you like your kitties with a little bit of sass and cattitude then Dotty's your girl!!

This is a lady who knows what she wants and she can be quite vocal when it comes to letting you know! She's a cat who likes the idea of a devoted human servant who can serve her regular meals and give her fuss on demand.

It is quite clear from her time in the cattery that she does NOT like other cats, we're unsure how she would react to a dog but she would insist upon being the boss, we're quite sure! We also think a home with no young children as Dotty would like to be the centre of attention and to be treated as such!

She really does enjoy human company and is quite indignant when we have to leave her pen, so we think she would enjoy being in a home where someone is around for a good part of the day, though she would still like to be independent and to be able come and go as she pleases.

If you think you could meet Dotty's exacting standards and would be able to give her the fuss and attention she craves (all on her own terms, obviously!) then please submit a Perfect Match form.


Teddy

10 years / Male / Domestic Shorthair


Teddy is around 10 years old and has spent a great deal of his life living outdoors, which has unfortunately resulted in having some health issues.

When he came into our care he was suffering with a very bad case of dermatitis and our staff and volunteers have worked hard to get his skin better, a job that has been made much easier by Teddy's gentle nature. He has been so good and patient while we have brushed him and applied cream to his skin, he never complains and just enjoys the fuss and attention. Now that his skin is much improved, we feel that he is ready to find his forever home where he can continue to receive lots of TLC.

In return you will be rewarded with a cat who is always happy to see you and who never says no to some fuss (he's a particular fan of head rubs!) Whenever we go into Teddy's pen he will always get out of his bed and come to say hi, he loves people and is a thoroughly lovely boy.

To register an interest in adopting Teddy please complete a Perfect Match form and email it to animalcentrestaff@rspcaworcester.org.uk


Topsy

1 - 2 years / Female / Domestic Shorthair

This beautiful, wide eyed and rather shy young lady is Topsy.


She was found with a severely injured front paw which sadly was so badly damaged, her leg could not be saved. This has not slowed Topsy down at all though and she has adapted amazingly well. For this reason we don't feel that she would need to be restricted to life as a house cat and, in fact, we feel she would benefit from outdoor access as she is only around 1-2 years old and was previously living outdoors as a stray.

Topsy is a very nervous girl although she is making huge progress and no longer hides away from us, as she did when she first came into our care. She will need an experienced and understanding owner, an adult-only home and things must be taken at her pace.

To apply to adopt Topsy please complete our Perfect Match form and email it to our staff.


Morse (RESERVED)

Male / 2-5 years / Domestic Shorthair

Morse is another scared little kitty rescued from the same multi-cat household as Nero, Nova, Nyx, Lala and Olive.

In common with all of the cats who have come into our care from this particular situation, Morse is very, very shy and nervous but we believe he will overcome this once he finds his forever home. Our experience so far with others from the same household who have now found their forever homes is that they have quickly adapted and gained their confidence.

He is thought to be between 2 and 5 years old and he is a beautiful cat who just needs a chance in a quiet, relaxed, adult only home.

To apply to adopt Morse please complete our Perfect Match form which can be found at the top of this page and return it to animalcentrestaff@rspcaworcester.org.uk


Lala (RESERVED)

Female / 6-12 months / Domestic Longhair 


Lala has come from a multi-cat household where their owner was unable to look after them. We have already found homes for her siblings, Nova, Nyx and Nero and we also have other kitties from the same home in our care.

With so many cats in one house, it is not always easy for us to know which pairs are particularly bonded with one another, therefore we will consider applications to adopt Lala and her sister Olive as a pair or individually. They seem to get along nicely and are sometimes found together in one bed, but equally they quite often choose to sleep separately so we think either scenario would work well for them; the important thing is to find these cats loving homes.

Lala is thought to be aged between 6 and 12 months. She is very conflicted as she doesn't quite know whether she can trust us yet. We do feel that, once she is settled into her forever home she will soon gain her confidence and come out of her shell. Her siblings who have now been adopted have all quickly blossomed in their new homes and we have every reason to believe that Lala will follow suit and quickly become a wonderful family cat. A calm, sensitive, caring home is what she really needs and deserves; if you think you could provide them with this then please complete a Perfect Match form, indicating whether you are looking to adopt them individually or as a pair.


Olive

1-2 years / Female / Domestic Shorthair

Olive has come from a multi-cat household where their owner was unable to look after them. We have already found homes for her siblings, Nova, Nyx and Nero and we also have other kitties from the same home in our care.

With so many cats in one house, it is not always easy for us to know which pairs are particularly bonded with one another, therefore we will consider applications to adopt Olive and her sister Lala as a pair or individually. They seem to get along nicely and are sometimes found together in one bed, but equally they quite often choose to sleep separately so we think either scenario would work well for them; the important thing is to find these cats loving homes.

Olive is thought to be aged between 1 and 2 years. She is a shy and nervous girl who hides away in her bed. We do feel that once she is settled into her forever home she will soon gain her confidence and come out of her shell. Her siblings who have now been adopted have all quickly blossomed in their new homes and we have every reason to believe that Olive will follow suit and quickly become a wonderful family cat.

A calm, sensitive, caring home is what she really needs and deserves; if you think you could provide them with this then please visit our website and complete a Perfect Match form, indicating whether you are looking to adopt them individually or as a pair.


Berry

12 weeks / Female / Domestic Shorthair


Berry is thought to be somewhere in the region of just 12 weeks old and she was found as a stray. It is heartbreaking to see such a young kitten, who should be enjoying her best life, running around and exploring the world with her siblings and playmates, all alone in the world, so scared and bewildered by what has happened to her. 

Thankfully this vulnerable little lady was handed into us and we will now do all that we can to help her start living the life that every kitten deserves.

Berry needs a home with another young cat or kitten, she desperately needs that opportunity to integrate and socialise and learn how to play like a kitten. Her forever family must be understanding of how nervous she is and how overwhelming all this has been for her in her short life so far.

Berry doesn't belong in the cattery, she needs to be in a loving home. Can you provide this darling little kitty with what she needs?

Please apply via our Perfect Match form which can be found at the top of this page and emailed to animalcentrestaff@rspcaworcester.org.uk


Mabel

10 years / Female / Domestic Shorthair


Meow-vellous Mabel has sadly found herself back in our care through no fault of her own.

This beautiful Tortie lady has unfortunately gained a few pounds recently, which has impacted upon her health and she is now on a strict diet to try to get her back down to her former svelte self. Our vet is of the opinion that once she shifts the weight, the health issues will more than likely resolve themselves. Our team can discuss this in more detail with anyone interested in adopting Mabel...and anyone meeting this girl will DEFINITELY want to adopt her as she is an absolute delight of a cat.

Mabel has all the sass and "tortitude" one might expect of such a fine feline, she demands fuss and attention and if you stop fussing her for a second she will reach out her paw to tap you for more! This is definitely a lady who knows want she wants... and what she doesn't... 

Obviously food is on her list of top likes so her furr-ever people will need to be disciplined over her diet. Top dislikes are other cats - Mabel does NOT like cats at all so she will need to be a lone kitty. She will mainly live indoors but she will need access to a garden where she can have a stroll but won't be likely to encounter other cats.

To share your life with this meow-gnificent mog please complete our Perfect Match form and email it to our team animalcentrestaff@rspcaworcester.org.uk


Hamilton

18 months / Male / Domestic Shorthair


Handsome Hamilton is approximately 18 months old and was signed over to us because he found living in a home with lively young children too overwhelming. The stress was upsetting his tummy and he was spending lots of time outside of the house so the decision was made to find him a new, more suitable home.

He is a gentle soul who spooks easily so he will need a quiet household, ideally adult only or with older, understanding children. Sudden movements and loud noises do scare him but we feel that once he is in a calm, understanding home, he will learn to relax. He has already shown himself to be a loving boy who absolutely adores a head rub and we just know he will make someone the perfect feline companion.

Hamilton has a casual elegance about him, both in demeanour and appearance-he is the ultimate tuxedo cat who truly is as gentlemanly as he looks.

To find out more about Hamilton please give our team a call on 01905 821272 (option 2) or complete our Perfect Match form and email it to animalcentrestaff@rspcaworcester.org.uk

Dora & Dorothy (RESERVED)

12 years / 2 - 5 years / Female / Domestic Shorthair

Dora and Dorothy are another pair from the multi-cat household mentioned in our previous posts (please see listings above for Morse, Olive and Lala).

They have been with us for a little while as Dora has suffered a few health issues but we feel that they will soon be ready to go to their forever home-all we need to do is find it for them!

Dora is the oldest of the two, thought to be around 12 years old and she also has a congenital defect in her right eye. Of the two cats Dora is the more confident, both of them will hide away in their bed but Dora ventures out more often and will accept a fuss. We think she will come round quickly once she is in a loving home.

Dorothy is thought to be between 2 and 5 years and is a shy girl but again, we feel she will soon gain her confidence once she is adopted. Like all of their siblings they have found coming into the cattery very scary but those of them who have now found their forever homes have all quickly adjusted so we have every reason to believe that these girls will be the same.

Please contact our team for more information or complete our Perfect Match form.


Bessie

10 years / Female / Domestic Shorthair

Poor little Bessie was found on the streets and rushed to a local vet who found that she was suffering with severe hypothermia. 

This little girl is very, very scared, we don't know what she has been through but she is very apprehensive of people and she really needs an understanding home with caring people who will love her and help her to come out of her shell.

If you would like to know more about this precious little girl then please call our team on 01905 821272 (option 2). Alternatively please complete our Perfect Match form which can be found at the top of this page and email it to animalcentrestaff@rspcaworcester.org.uk


Sesame

6 years / Female  / Domestic Shorthair

If you like characterful cats then Sesame's your girl! We could honestly write a book about Sesame's antics and there really is never a dull moment when she's around!

At around 6 years old she came into our care suffering some health issues that sadly her owners were unable to provide treatment for. We have now resolved her dental issues but she is still suffering with dermatitis though this has improved significantly. Sesame also has an historical eye injury which means that she is blind in one eye but it certainly hasn't dulled her sense of adventure as she loves to jump and climb-she is literally into everything and loves nothing more than to join us in the kitchen, climbing up shelves, jumping onto worktops and the moment a cupboard door is opened you can guarantee Sesame will there to investigate!

She is a cat who just loves to be in the thick of things, she loves company and hates being isolated in her pen. 

One of her "Sesame-isms" is her silent miaow (though sometimes she manages to squeeze a proper miaow out when she really has something to say) as she shouts at you to come and see her and open the door.

When you do, she will climb up your chest and she loves giving kisses - she is super affectionate and very pushy about letting you know it!

Sesame is a true comedian, she makes us laugh every day. She has just enough sass to get what she wants (she's big on stealing everyone else's food but is really picky about her own-thankfully she does enjoy her dental biscuits but we've yet to find a wet food she'll eat!) but she is incredibly sweet natured, she's fine being handled (albeit a bit wriggly) and she will only get her claws out to climb up to get your attention.

She is a firm favourite with all of the staff and volunteers here at The Holdings, she really is a lovely cat who would enjoy a home where there are people around for a great deal of the time.

If you would like to meet Sesame then please give our team a call on 01905 821272 (option 2).
