ADOPT A CAT: Millie

Hiya Millie here and I’m a super pretty, 2 & ½ year-old, outdoor, black & white female cat that is looking for a “forever” family, could that be you?

I've been in care since last February 2016 and have been working very hard on my behavior plan from the Cat Behaviorist. My progress has been somewhat amazing however I still find it difficult to always control my emotions but my fosterer is really good at reading me and she's got really quick reactions!

The humans say that my biggest improvement is that they can now stroke me and pick me up. In the beginning I didn't like being touched at all and if a hand came towards me I'd see it as a threat. I wouldn't say I like being stroked or picked up- but I can tolerate it. Many times my foster mum has tried to film me being stroked (and ok sometimes I do enjoy it) but as soon as she presses the play button, I see it as my job to make sure I'm not caught on camera- well a girls got to keep her reputation!

My foster mum is always telling me that there is someone out there for me- someone who can cope with all my wee foibles and idiosyncrasies. Well, no luck so far, but I'm happy here, so it takes as long as it takes.

Thank you for following my journey and supporting my staff (they call themselves cats protection volunteers). Love Millie x


* (Millie enjoys company but is definitely not a lap cat, loves playing especially with her frenzy feathered rod toy and ideally is looking for a family that doesn’t have any other pets or children. If you would like to know more about Millie or enquire about adopting her, please contact the branch on 0345 371 2722 (option 2) or email cpglasgow@gmail.com) *

ADOPT A CAT: Millie

Hiya Millie here and I’m the branches “STAR CAT”.

I’m a super pretty, 2& ½ year-old, outdoor, black & white female cat that is looking for a “forever” family, could that be you?

I was taken away from my mum when I was far too young & never learned all the things kittens learn when growing and have kitty cattitude (though, since coming into the branch I have been working with a cat behaviourist and am looking for a family that have had experience with cats before who can continue with my progress).

I am a very independent little cat that enjoys company but I am definitely not a lap cat. I love playing especially with my frenzy feathered rod toy and I am looking for a family that has no other pets or children.

If you would like to adopt me or know anything else about me then please get in touch with the branch quickly on 0345 371 2722 (option 2) or email cpglasgow@gmail.com before I’m snapped up!

Lots of love Millie xxx

ADOPT A CAT: Marbles

Purrrr, Miaow there! My name is Marbles and I'm a & ½ year old, outdoor, longhaired tortoiseshell female cat who is looking for my “furever” home

Affectionate, super playful & inquisitive describes me to a “T” and I love to be cuddled & made a fuss off and will happily snuggle up beside you on the couch for a snooze.

I’m an outdoor girl who’s looking for a safe outdoor home, well away from busy roads and I get on great with children but not too sure how I would get on with other cats.

Would do you think? Am I the pussycat for you? If you’ve said “YES” get in touch with the branch on 0345 371 2722 (option 2) or email cpglasgow@gmail.com quickly as I’m sure to gather a lot of interest.

Story
Tagline
Miaow! Welcome to the Google+ page of Cats Protection Glasgow Branch.
Introduction
Cats Protection Glasgow Branch is run by a small team of dedicated, unpaid volunteers who work hard in their spare time to care for and find homes for unwanted cats and kittens throughout the Glasgow area. Being a small branch, our cats are not based at a central location to visit - instead all cats/kittens within our care are placed in foster homes pending a suitable home being found. The Branch is essentially self-sufficient, depending on funds raised locally to care for the cats we rescue.

It is our policy to never put a healthy cat to sleep and we believe that there is a new, loving home somewhere for each and every cat in our care.

---

Cats Protection is the UK’s leading cat welfare charity enjoying the support of over 6,500 volunteers. Our vision is ‘to ensure that every cat is given the chance of a life where it will be treated with kindness and understanding of its needs’. We will achieve this through our three key objectives of finding good homes for cats in need, by supporting and encouraging the neutering of cats and by improving people’s understanding of cats and their care.

Each year we help 142,000 cats through our rehoming, neutering and microchipping programmes. Much of this is achieved due to the hard work and dedication of our branches and volunteers who along with the staff have helped the charity become what it is today.
