As avid Our Goole readers will know, we love trying to help Goole RSPCA find families for cats and kittens in their care and now, as December approaches, we are once again trying to find forever homes for these gorgeous felines. Could you give a playful pal their Christmas wish of a loving home?
Goole & District RSPCA is a registered charity and, while they support and work with the national RSPCA, they are primarily responsible for generating their own funds to help and care for sick, injured and desperate animals in the local area.
The branch is run by a team of volunteers who spend their time fundraising, doing home checks or looking after the animals in their care. The volunteers are extremely dedicated – they even foster cats and kittens in their own homes until they are ready to find their forever families.
Some of the kittens were born in care and others have been rescued by the inspectorate. They are socialised in a fosterer’s home where possible so they become purrfectly playful and sociable cats. The RSPCA do not re-home until kittens are at least eight weeks of age and have had their first vaccinations to ensure they are in the best of health.
Georgina Petty, press officer and volunteer for Goole RSPCA said: ‘With Christmas just around the corner, we have lots of character cats and a few playful kittens growing up in care. We want to find forever homes for our fab felines so they can enjoy winter in a comfy bed with the company they deserve. We have cats to suit all different kinds of families and each one has its own personality so we are sure you’ll find one you’ll fall in love with!’
Can you give a furry friend a forever home? Goole RSPCA has currently got a number of cats and kittens looking for their forever home.
Cinnamon is a handsome 18-month-old. When he was taken into foster care he was in a poor state and was wary of people.
It is believed he had been on the streets for a long time. Now with a warm bed, good food and lots of love, he is the picture of health. Although he is still learning to trust humans, once you have gained his trust you’ll have a friend for life in Cinnamon.
Sox is initially shy when you meet him but once he gets to know you he is very playful and sweet. Sox would love to sit in a box in a home that he can call his own.
Theo is a gorgeous little kitten who is super friendly and loves cuddles. You can’t help but fall in love with him! He’d love a family to sit on the sofa with and get toasty and warm.
If you’ve been considering adopting a cat, Goole RSPCA could have the one for you. All cats and kittens adopted from Goole RSPCA are only done so after a home visit. You can arrange one by calling 07599 087527 between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 1pm on Saturday or for further information, visit the website, www.rspca-goole.co.uk.
Goole RSPCA charges adoption fees of £55 for an adult (over six-months-old) or £70 for a kitten. This covers neutering, blood testing, vaccinations, ID chipping and up-to-date de-fleaing and worming treatments.
