Sonny has just gone to his new home with his pal Nero – thank you Auntie Amy for looking after me.

About Me

  • My name is Sonny and I’m  Sonny by name and Sunny by nature.
  • I came into the centre looking for a new home with Nero and Mist as my owner had sadly passed away.  She loved us all very much and we were really well cared for.  Nero and I would love a home together, but aren’t totally bonded and so if they can’t find a home for us together we could go separately but it would be great if we could as we would then be less lost in our new home.
  • I love to be fussed and cuddled and am really friendly and would be fine being rehomed with nice sensible children as I’m not nasty as long as nobody hurts me.    We or I could live with another friendly cat I do like to strutt my stuff though and am a pretty large boy you see.
  • I am currently living in a foster home with my pal Sonny, and can’t wait to get started moving to my new home (even though Auntie Amy loves me and is helping me on my way to find home.
  • I am really sociable and am happy being a mostly indoor cat, I have used a cat flap before but feel its safer inside mostly apart from a little wander around the garden in nice weather.
  • I have lived with 2 nice dogs before.

Dogs and cats do get on. Kittens may be easier to introduce a dog to but adult cats that have come from homes with dogs (or laid back strays that we have in our care) can equally be re homed with dogs that are feline friendly. So much depends on the breed and age of the dog, which is often why we make a point to ask. Sometimes it is easier to introduce a cat to a dog then it is with a cat to a resident cat. For more information about how to introduce a new feline into your home with resident dogs or/and cats check out the articles under behaviour on the International Cat Care website

Finally neutering. The many problems caused by unspayed or unneutered pets each year are part of what has prompted numerous rescue societies to require that any adopted animals be promptly spayed or neutered as a condition of adoption.  It really is very simple, by getting your cat neutered when it reaches the appropriate age you save the “lives” of many other puss cats out there, and any true animal lover would surely wish that.
