The RSPCA is appealing to find homes for two special cats in their care who have spent months looking for their forever homes.
Jixxy, a two-year-old grey and white cat came into the care of RSPCA Stapeley Grange Cattery in August this year.
He was rescued by an inspector as his owner was sadly no longer able to care for him.
When he first came into the cattery, Jixxy was a shy and timid boy and it took several months for him to settle into cattery life. However, with some time and patience he began to slowly come out of his shell. Now Jixxy is settled, his loving and affectionate personality can shine and he has revealed himself to be a true lap cat. He has a very sweet personality and loves fuss.
Lee Stewart, RSPCA Stapeley Grange manager, said: “Through no fault of his own, we have found that Jixxy has been overlooked in his search for a new home. We would love to see him out of the cattery and in a new home in time for Christmas.”
Jixxy is looking for a quiet, adult-only home with no other cats and a safe outdoor space away from busy roads. A comfortable lap is almost a must!
Rupert is a black and white seven-year-old cat who was signed over into RSPCA care in September this year. He is a gentle soul and hasn’t been brave enough to venture outside at the cattery. He tends to stay in his bed and hide. However, as soon as the pen door opens he starts to purr, he loves attention and likes to play.
Lee added: “Poor Rupert is finding cattery life a little stressful and missing his home comforts. We would love him to find an experienced owner who would, no doubt, help him get his sparkle back.”
Rupert will need an adult only home and he would prefer to be the only cat in the house.
Lee added: “It’s our Christmas wish for these cats to find loving forever homes!”
If you think you could offer Jixxy or Rupert a loving home, please contact RSPCA Stapeley Grange Cattery on email@example.com or 0300 123 0748.

While the festive season may be a time to join together with family and friends, many animals will be waiting patiently to find their new family in an RSPCA rescue centre. It will cost us £4,117 to run an animal centre for one day this winter so we’re asking animal lovers to Join the Rescue this Christmas to make sure animals get the care they need this winter.
Our rescue teams will be out in all weathers this winter, rescuing animals from abuse, neglect and suffering. To Join the Christmas Rescue and help our rescuers be there for the animals in need, please visit www.rspca.org.uk/rescuexmas
