Humphrey is a very fluffy ginger and white boy who has been at the shelter since summer 2017. At first he was very timid but he has come out of himself a lot recently and is now much more confident and very friendly.
Unfortunately, he is not an easy boy to take on. Aside from needing regular and thorough grooming to prevent his coat from matting, he has a very delicate stomach due to some food intolerances, and needs a very specific diet if he is to remain healthy. We’ve been fine-tuning his food for months and know exactly what he needs; the new owner will have to maintain the diet most likely for the rest of Humphrey’s life. It will also be important for them to stay in close contact with us should he develop problems again.
For these reasons, Humphrey is not suitable for homing with anyone unable to give him the time and dedication he will require. The new owner must also have no other pets whose food he could snaffle.
Millie is a slightly timid tortoiseshell girl aged about 3, who once you have gained her trust will be loving and a super forever friend.
She’s very fluffy and her tail can make her look very fox-like if you catch her from the corner of your eye 🙂
New arrival Toby is a gorgeous black and white boy, about 2.5 – 3 years old, with a very distinctive white patch with black stripe down his nose. He is very friendly and loves a warm lap, but he has a trigger whereby if he is over-petted he will let you know about it with a hiss and a swipe. This is mostly mouth and no trousers but even so he is not a cat for a first-time owner, as it will require some experience to assess his changing moods quickly and react appropriately.
He does NOT like other cats! And will not do well in a home with children.
Bridget is a pretty 2-3 year old brindle tortoiseshell who has lived at Katz Castle for alot of her life. She originally arrived as a stray when she was about 10 months old, and as she did not get adopted became one of the permanent residents at the shelter. However she is now being picked on by a couple of the other resident cats so her life isn’t as happy as it was. As a result we are having another attempt at finding her a home especially as she is such a young cat.
Bridget is quite a small cat – so is often referred to as ‘Bridget the Midget’ although she put on weight whilst she was inside over the winter. Bridget is a typical tortie who knows her own mind, although she has mellowed since living at Katz Castle. She is a very friendly and affectionate girl – but on her terms. She likes to come up to you for a fuss but after a couple of strokes she’s had enough. Bridget is not the type of cat who wants to be picked up and cuddled, but in the right home she will be very happy.
Bridget needs to be an only cat and she would not be suitable to live with children. She also would not like to live with a dog.
