George & Terrance

George and Terrance are two nervous boys who were part of our Fairhill rescue. They've come along so well since arriving, but they are still very nervous and prefer to spend time to themselves.

They know to go to their crate for bed and food and are happy with other cats and dogs.

They need a lot of time to build trust.

Clifford

Clifford / Boots is a lovely boy who was lifted in August as part of our rescue at the Fairhill Shopping Centre in Ballymena. He has come around so much in his time at the sanctuary and this is his second time being advertised due to being removed because of an injury and vet care.

We are pleased to say he's been given the ok from the vet and although he has a limp, we have been informed that activity is the best thing for him to increase strength and mobility.

So now all he needs is a home!

He is a long-haired boy and does require daily brushing to keep him silky smooth; he has become quite fond of his grooming time and will lie and purr contentedly.

He is good with other cats and will often be found on the sofa or in one of the many beds, having a snooze. He isn't really one for games and play, and would prefer a quieter home where he can be pampered and claim all the soft surfaces.

Nancy

Nancy (originally Claire online) was one of the twelve lifted at the Fairhill shopping centre in August/September 2020. She has had two litters of kittens this year alone, whilst not being much more than a baby herself.

She is rather fondly known as "Hissy" due to her hiss of 'unwelcome' to intruders. She has not much sign of ever really knowing love or TLC before coming to the sanctuary and it has taken a lot for her to get as far as she has in building trust with people and confidence. Unfortunately, we just don't have the time to truly dedicate to her with so many currently calling the sanctuary home. She is currently weaning her last litter and then she will be going to get spayed.

We will always have a home here for her at the sanctuary and she does get time spent with her and we will get time to work with her one on one in the future, but if there was a home out there with a special person who would be willing to work with her and to show her humans aren't all bad we would be delighted to hear from you.

She knows her crate now well and although she has the run of the office and reception during the day will go into her crate at night for bed and dinner.

Can you offer a place for Nancy when she is ready and help her learn to trust again?
This place can be temporary or permanent! We just want her to have the best chance.

Joy & Joe

Could you give your home to a mother and son who deserve a chance?

Joe is a lovely 4-month-old kitten, full of fun and adventure and always ready for play. His mother Joy is more reserved, shy, and anxious with new people.

We are more and more concerned about how Joy will cope without her boy. She is happier and less anxious when he’s around and although she still spends the majority of her time watching from a safe spot we honestly believe that with a little bit of care and the home environment can do wonders.

So we are making a plea for a home where Joy and Joe can stay together. They deserve a home together, where Joe can cause chaos while Joy has a quiet spot to watch and nap.

Joy is only a baby herself, but she has had a hard life on the streets; with multiple litters in her past. Joy was straying for over a year when we picked her up. She was a very nervous girl, and soon after arriving had kittens. She was an excellent mother and soon her babies were all off to new homes but one.

Joe was born at the sanctuary; his mother Joy being rescued the month before. He is a lovely boy although has picked up a few nerves from his mother. He is very playful and curious though and loves to explore his space. He would love a home where he can continue to explore and grow.

Tortie

This lovely lady is looking for a home. All her siblings have been rehomed and she is currently sharing with the two remaining siblings from another litter. She is a lazy girl, who enjoys her naps. We imagine given the chance she would take over any sofa's or beds. She has been vaccinated, spayed and is now just waiting for that elusive home to come her way.

She is nervous of new people, but she just needs someone willing to give her a chance. Even half an hour in her company and she will be over to explore your lap. Surely someone could give her a chance?

When you come to meet Tortie or her friends you may not get the chance to interact with her. They are very shy and nervous and due to this, the intrusion of new people into their space can cause them to hide. If you do want to rehome them do consider this when coming to meet them. Their siblings who have already been rehomed were equally as nervous, some even more so, and in the home environment have become happy house cats, and in a number of cases, happy lap cats!

They do need time; so please remember this when visiting them; they deserve a home.
