RSPCA cats awaiting adoption in the North East

These cats are looking for a forever home in the North East after facing difficult circumstances so far.

The RSPCA Cat Rehoming Hub works with local RSPCA branches to rehom cats and kittens rescued by RSPCA officers in the Darlington, Stockton, Northallerton, Middlesbrough and North Yorkshire areas.

Cats have often faced cruelty, neglect and abandonment or sad situations where their owner could no longer care for them or died.

From a cattery just outside of Darlington and an extensive network of volunteer foster families, it takes in around 250 cats each year, making it one of the most successful catteries in the country.

Here are some of the cats currently looking for their new forever home at the RSPCA Cat Hub.

Cats to adopt

Beauty

The very special old lady Beauty is looking for a rare new home.

Beauty is a beautiful 16-year-old indoor cat who is now the longest-staying cattery at the RSPCA. She is a bit grumpy, but accepts treats from the hands.

She only likes to be patted on the head and doesn’t like other cats. She will never really be a lap cat or want lots of cuddles.

She is looking for a patient and understanding owner, perhaps in a quiet, single adult household, who is willing to accept her for who she is because she won’t change much at her age.

If you’d like to adopt Beauty or get more information, you can visit the RSPCA Cat Hub website for the rehoming process here.

Owl

Owlie is a male, tabby and white, long-haired cat, approximately 2 to 5 years old.

He is a shy boy at the cattery, but he is gradually becoming more confident.

Because of his long coat, Owlie needs an owner who has time to groom him every day.

He is looking for a household reserved for adults or with children over 10 years old.

He can possibly live with a female cat, as long as this cat has lived with other cats before. He can be an indoor or an outdoor cat.

If you’d like to adopt Owlie or get more information, you can visit the RSPCA Cat Hub website for the rehoming process here.

Peak

The Echo of the North: Spike. Peak.

Spike is an adorable 11 year old male cat looking for a new home.

He was a stray cat signed by his owner to the RSPCA, as he continued to roam far from home.

For this reason, he is looking for a home outside of Darlington, ideally with access to a catio, in case he wanders around!

Spike is a little nervous until you sit still and he comes out on his own, so he’s looking for a new home without young children.

He seems to be able to get along with other cats.

If you would like to adopt Spike or get more information, you can visit the RSPCA Cat Hub website for the rehoming process here.

Oscar

Oscar is a cream colored male cat, approximately 8 years old.

He is looking for an outdoor home where he can roam freely, but might also like access to a home as we know he has lived indoors in the past.

He wants to be the only cat there.

Unfortunately, he was a bit clumsy and unpredictable when locked inside.

Adopters are asked to provide weatherproof shelter, food and water at least daily and to monitor Oscar’s health and seek veterinary assistance when needed.

He will also need access to land to move around and to vegetation such as woods, fields or gardens.

If you would like to adopt Oscar or get more information, you can visit the RSPCA Cat Hub website for the rehoming process here.

Sooty

Sooty is a 4 year old black female adult cat who was unfortunately returned to us as she did not get along with the other cats in the house.

Sooty is looking for an indoor home where she can be the only cat, ideally with a new owner who is home often and has time to help her regain her confidence, as she is currently not very social.

She is looking for a household where children are over 10 years old.
