Long-term residents need a closer look

06 September 2018
Long-term residents need a closer look As much as we love caring for cats, it makes us happiest to see them rehomed with a loving family who can give them love and attention.

There is a new home for every cat, but some stay in care longer than others. They can be overlooked for many reasons: age, ailments or simply the wrong colour.

None of these should be enough for a cat to miss out on a new home with the right family. But they can be the difference between a loving cat curling up on a warm lap or they live out their years in a care cabin.

At the National Cat Adoption Centre, we provide help and advice about rehoming our cats, working to overcome the concerns that lead to some of our longer residents being overlooked.

We believe that there is a home out there for every cat. A family for every puss. 

Here are some of the cats who have been with us for far too long.

Take a look at these long-term resident cats and consider if you could share your home with them:

 is an independent eight-year-old lady who has been at the centre 120 days. 

As a one person cat who likes peace and quiet, life at the centre is a bit tricky for this all-black beauty. 

She likes a little fuss and to play with a fishing rod toy, and we're told that she used to sleep at the foot of her old owner's bed.

Oliver Hardy has been in our care now for 371 days - more than one year!


He is a big lad with an even bigger personality. He needs someone he can spend lots of time with, burning off his energy.

Oliver Hardy is a young lad, so has lots of vim and vigour. He will need lots of enrichment and plenty of space for his explorations.

With a slow introduction, Twitty could share his home with a cat-loving dog, but Oliver Hardy will have to rule out other cats and children.

Jess has been at the NCAC for 135 days.

She is the most beautiful cat and, although she can be a little shy at first, her barriers drop once introduced to people.

She will even roll over for strokes. Jess is a real homebody, so if you are looking to rescue a young cat who will be your companion, then Jess is your new girl.
