Long-term residents need a closer look

17 July 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 (further information and images can be found via the links):

Tilly is a wonderfully sleek grey cat - like a 'Sheba' TV lookalike. Just look at that elegance...

At eight years old, this is an independent lady and loves to be outside.

Tilly does like to snuggle after a hard day exploring and hunting in her kingdom, so she is finding it hard to be stuck in a pen all day at the NCAC.

Tilly is not a fan of other cats, which is equally hard for her here, as she is surrounded by them. 

Can you offer Tilly a home, where she has the freedom to explore and claim her independence, and then come home for cuddles later? 

Smudge came to the NCAC after being found roaming the streets with no home to call his own.

He is still full of vim and vigour at 10-years-old. Smudge loves to play and chase his catnip toys! He is very inquisitive, and loves watching all the goings on at the centre.Please get in touch. These cats need another chance at a better life. 

Puszka is overlooked and we can't see why. Despite being ten years old, she really doesn’t look (or behave) like it! 

She is such a sweet and pretty girl. She can be a little shy when she first meets you, but once trust has built up she loves a fuss and a head tickle.

She has a super loud purr when she gets going!

Puszka is looking for a quiet adult only home, where she can get all the attention, and owners who will give her time and patience to settle. 

With good luck and vet care, as required, she should have a good long life ahead of her. 


Bean, aged three, is a lovely, super friendly, cat who just needs a minute to suss you out and become best friends.

Bean is not so keen on other cats though. Being at the NCAC and surrounded by cats isn’t helping her to show herself off.

A garden to explore in the wonderful sunshine would be wonderful.

Bean loves her home comforts. We are doing our best but its just not the same. Can you help?
