CHEADLE Animal Welfare Society is hoping that our kind-hearted Post & Times readers can help to give a home to one of these cats, Kizzie and Bill.
Kizzie is mainly black with a big fluffy coat. She came into the society's care in June 2013 having been taken to Lime Trees Veterinary Clinic in a pretty bad state; she had fleas and a matted coat which was soaked in urine.
On closer inspection it became apparent that she had also been shot at, possibly with an airgun.
Fortunately her wounds were only superficial, but the trauma she must have gone through is indescribable. Thankfully all that is behind her now. The next step for Kizzie is to find a new and caring home.
She is a lovely cat with a very nice nature and being an older cat.
She has been there and done all of that playing and chasing around.
These days Kizzie has only one speed and that is 'potter'.
She loves just wandering around the garden and settling in a nice sunny spot where she can simply relax and watch the world go by around her.
She loves company and likes you to sit with her and stroke her back, around her ears and under her chin.
Sometimes she can be a bit temperamental and will let you know if she would prefer to be left on her own.
She is not a cat that will want to be fussed for too long.
A quiet, country home where there are no very young children and where she can come and go as she pleases would be ideal for Kizzie.
She is not at all aggressive with other friendly cats and is quite happy to share her home with a friendly cat-loving dog too.
Bill had been seen wandering in Whiston for several days and it was noticed that he didn't appear to have an owner so Cheadle Animal Welfare Society was contacted.
Bill's first port of call was Lime Trees Veterinary Clinic where it was found that he had a very sore paw.
Upon further examination a small hole was found in his pad which had been caused by one of his claws having grown into it.
The strange thing was that the claw had been removed by someone, but no owner has come forward to claim him.
Bill was extremely thin when he first arrived so must have been living rough for some time.
He is an affectionate cat, but needs to find a home with someone who will give him lots of TLC and loads of love.
He needs somewhere he can be an indoor cat.
He is a very special cat and the society is trying to do its best to get him a better quality of life than he has had in the past.
If you can offer a home to either Kizzie or Bill please telephone 01889 564045 or 01335 390369.
