The Croydon Advertiser runs a story about the cat crises, asking readers to come forward and help Croydon Animal Samaritans
Chianti and Cosmos are a delightful pair and we are looking for a home where they can stay together as they are devoted to each other. Although never having been outside, Cosmos is raring to explore the outside world now, he is very active with lots of energy - just ready to expel some energy running around a garden and climbing trees! Chianti, a little less extrovert, but will soon follow in his brothers footsteps as he passes on his confidence to him. So, if you can offer these adorable boys a loving home, and you live in a quiet area well away from busy roads, with a garden, please ring Barbara on 020 688 6568
"I would like to introduce myself - My name is Shadow and I am a young 2 year old boy who, although I love my foster mum, is desperate to go to a new home that I can call my own. I have been here some time now and I just do not have enough room or company to keep me busy. I sit and look longingly out from my chalet, just longing for the day that someone will come and see me to offer me a home. Please, please, if you are looking for a friendly cat that will settle well into your home, I promise that I will be that cat. If you could ring my fosterer, Audrey, on 01737 551830, I will be really pleased!"
Mimi is an 18 month old brindle tortie. She has been vaccinated and neutered and loves to roll on her side as a greeting in the morning. She has a lovely soft coat and has developed her purr. She also loves a morning play. She has the most lovely markings, very light grey amongst blacks, browns and gingers. She has been with me for some time now and no one has come to see her. In that time she has become more and more affectionate towards me and looks forwards to any visits I or my family give her. If you have older children (10+) then Mimi will be fine with you. If you are on your own then that would be even better for her. If you think you can offer Mimi a home and live away from busy roads, please call Lois on (020) 8647 7815
