TO MINIMIZE THE RISK OF COVID-19, THE RESCUE IS NOW CLOSED
The rescue is open to the public for viewing between 11.30am - 3.30pm daily. You do not need to make an appointment, just report to reception on arrival. The fee for adopting a cat is £50.00. They are all vaccinated, microchipped, de-flead, wormed and neutered (if old enough).
If you have seen a cat on our website / Instagram / Facebook page that you are interested in please give us a call on 0190545655 to discuss whether they are still available. Please be aware that we are unable to reserve any animal via phone or email. You will have to visit us and meet the animal before we can reserve the animal to you and start the adoption process.
Upon arrival please report to reception and a member of staff will be able to show you the cattery.
If you would like more information please visit our homing procedures page.
Below are the current cats available for rehoming:
Reggie - 10-12yrs, DSH
Reggie arrived at Danemere from the vets as a unchipped stray therefore we sadly have no previous history on him. Reggie is a super confident little fella, he's incredibly friendly and will meow to say hello - he's got the loudest greeting in the cattery! Reggie adores head and cheek rubs and will lay down and wriggle around if he is really enjoying it.
Reggie has been very overlooked in the cattery, but he has became one of our receptionists favourite cats. Reggie can be fiesty sometimes - if he doesn't like something that you are doing i.e stroking towards his lower back he will let you know but as long as you give head / cheek rubs he is content. Reggie is very sweet and will happily receive a fuss all day long if he could.
We are unsure as to what he is like with other cats. Reggie has such a sweet little face with a sweet personality to match. Reggie would most likely suit a home where there are no children or other animals. He would love a home where there are plenty of warm (bonus points for 'sun' spots - he loves sun bathing) places to snooze and relax for the rest of his days.
Lilly - 10 yrs, DSH
Monty - 7/8 yrs, DSH
Monty was brought to us because of a sudden change in behaviour around his brother.
Monty is a very affectionate, super friendly cat who loves being fussed. Monty does not mind being picked up for a cuddle. Monty is good with children and dogs and has lived with them previously.
Monty appeared to be in good health however, sadly when we took Monty for his routine vet visit we discovered that he has a heart murmur. He currently does not need medication but may need it in the future. We have a statement from our vets (MacArthur Barstow & Gibbs) below to give you more information.
''Monty is a lovely cat looking for a home but he has a heart murmur.
This means there is turbulent blood flow through his heart.
A heart scan has showed he has thickening of his Left Ventricle (the largest chamber in the heart), however the Atrium (smaller chamber) is currently normal.
Cats can have thickening of their Left Ventricle and show no symptoms for years, however it can not be predicted if, or when, the thickening may progress to cause heart disease.
Because Monty's atrium is a normal size and he is showing no symptoms, no treatment is currently needed.
However, it is advised that he has yearly heart scans to monitor the size of his Atrium. If it becomes enlarged Monty will then need life long medication.
Cats that develop heart disease have shorter lives.
It would be good for a new owner to monitor Monty's resting respiratory rate, (ie, when he is fast asleep), once a month. If the breathing rate is higher than 30 breaths a minute , this could be an early sign that Monty's heart is starting to struggle.''
Monty will need an attentive, understanding owner that is prepared to care for Monty's individual needs and will take it step by step knowing what the future will hold with annual heart scans and possible medication. If you think that you could look past Monty's condition and give him a well-deserved wonderful home or would like more information please give us a call on 01905 345655 to discuss further.
