    Hi I’m Goldie. I’ve had a rough start to life but I’m eager for a comfortable home and loving family.
    I don’t really like to be held but I love pats and head kisses. I know how to pull your heartstrings to get my way, deny me my wants and I’ll tilt my head and cry to you, it’s adorable.
    I’m very independent and I don’t really like competition so I would suit someone without any other pets. I’m eating all my food and using my litter tray.

    Hi I’m Jazz, I’m very loving and I love pats.
    I’m a little bit shy but I’m very cuddly when I’m comfortable. I like to hide in small places and I’m a pretty quiet kitty.
    I would be more suited to a family with older children that know how to play with me gently.

    Hi, my name is lady and I’m the biggest sweetheart you’ll ever meet.
    I love finding a nice cozy spot to relax and my FAVOURITE thing is when someone brushes my soft fur and… roast chicken, I love roast chicken.
    I’m very placid and easy going but I am shy when I first meet you. I’ll be best suited in a quiet household so I can slowly warm up to my new home and you.
    You’ll know when I have settled in because I’ll walk around the house talking.
    If you are looking for some company I’m the lady for you, so call my foster mum so we can meet!

    I get on good with my big fat cat foster brothers and happily share my food with everyone.
    I use my litter tray every time.
