We will always take our animals back if you do not get on with them


It may take weeks, months or Years for an animal to settle down.

Shes a 5 year old female. She was given up due to her owner passing away.  She is a little timid to start but a nice little cat. She doesn't like other animals so needs to be the only pet in the household. Does like to get outside and explore so will need outdoor access eventually.

likes to be indoor and outdoor on his own terms he is around 7 + years


Needs Patience and time to re adjust to his new surroundings.  He was a feral he just gets scared. A quiet household would suit him nicely.
