THE Scottish SPCA is seeking new homes for nearly 350 cats who are currently at their Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centres throughout Scotland.
Scotland’s animal welfare charity has already cared for 1,669 cats this year and more arrive every day.
Glasgow Centre Manager Anna O’Donnell said, “We’re struggling to find space for cats at the moment as we’ve been inundated with abused, abandoned and injured felines.
“Each cat has their own personality and we know their perfect home is out there so we’d love for people to pop along to the centre to meet them all!
“Part of the problem is some people treating cats like disposable items that can be thrown out on to the streets and left to fend for themselves. Often this results in sick and injured cats needing our help.
“Sadly, less people are enquiring about rehoming cats at the moment and because we don’t put any healthy animals to sleep many are spending weeks and sometimes months in our care with little interest.
“It’s extremely rewarding to offer an animal a second chance in life and we would be delighted to hear from prospective owners who have the time and resources to care for a pet.”
Anyone who can offer a cat a suitable new home is being asked to head along to their local centre or call 03000 999 999.
Jinxy is a cheeky and mischievous boy who arrived in Scottish SPCA care after his previous owner was unable to look after him.
When he first arrived he was rather shy, but he has now come out of his shell and is a friendly boy who enjoys attention (on his own terms). He is quite an independent cat but does like a little bit of fuss.
With Jinxy everything is turned in to a game as he is full of beans. Therefore he will require a home with access to the outdoors once he is settled and plenty of toys and cat trees to keep him occupied.
Jinxy would be best suited to a home without young children due to his cheeky nature.
