Jasper

Jasper

medium coat DSH - male - 2 months and 1 week

Plump little Jasper came into care with his 3 siblings. He is still nursing with mum for the time being but has started eating kitten mousse recently and it turns out that he loves it!

At the moment he and his siblings are learning to run and jump and Jasper is quite brave, making it to the second tier of the cat scratch tree and then jumping back down. He is a very friendly little kitten and will usually run to the door as soon as he hears it open.

Jasper loves to be held and cuddled or just sit on your leg as you do your work. He has a lot of energy and loves to interact and play with his brothers and sisters, as well as his canine companions. He also enjoys chasing after toys and pushing ping pong balls around the floor.

Jasper would make a wonderful addition to most homes. He will need to be kept indoors.

Beryl

Beryl

DSH - female - 2 months and 1 week

Hi, I'm Beryl! I'm pretty small but I'm mighty!l

Little Beryl came into care with her mum and 3 siblings. She's currently doing her best to grow big and strong.

Beryl likes to sit and watch before she comes for a pat and play. She is a brave kitten, climbing higher on the cat scratch tree than her siblings do and then bravely jumping back down. Beryl was the first of her siblings to use the litter tray on her own and has been using it reliably since.

Beryl would prefer a more quiet home with older children or a person working from home.

Beryl is vet-checked, microchipped, vaccinated and flea/worm treated. She will be desexed prior to re-homing.

Sammy

Sammy

DSH - male - 5 months and 3 weeks

These glorious ginger kitties were surrendered into our care by an elderly lady who rescued their mum and three more siblings. She nurtured and loved them, but had neither the finances nor the room to keep them all.

It was only when the carer brought them home that she realised the boys are almost identical – in fact, it is only recently that we’ve managed to distinguish between them as Sammy has an S-shape embedded in his fur. These boys may enjoy a new home together, but will also be happy to find a fabulous furever home all to themselves.

Both kitties were socialised initially within the rescuer’s wider family, including children, but social lockdown put an end to that and it did take a week or two for these guys to venture far. However, they chose the carer’s bedroom for their early retreat so clearly they are people pussycats, and they are now making up for lost time. They both love their chow.

Sammy is quite inquisitive and has proved the more adventurous of the two despite being the smaller. He loves a good play and romp with his brother and toys.

He has become quite affectionate, especially at bed time when he decides to clamber all over his carer asking for head scratches; he has a lot of purring going on. Sammy does like to play with toys with his brother, and loves a good chase around the house. At this stage, he’s still cautious of people walking around, but we are seeing improvement with further socialisation.

Both kitties are beautiful long boys when they stretch out! At times they both decide to lie across the carer’s legs – not sure whether the carer or they are the most uncomfortable with this arrangement, but certainly they insist it’s a really good thing.

We believe both Sammy and Oscar will take a little time to settle in, and will need patience and love from their new families. But the reward will be great. These kitties must be indoor only.

Sammy and Oscar have been microchipped, vaccinated and will be desexed prior to adoption. They are located in Colyton.

If you are interested in learning more about or providing a home to one or both of these lovely boys, please contact his carer.

NOTE: All visits will be by appointment, and in accordance with prevailing social distancing protocols.

Sammy has been in foster care since 13 May 2020, for 3 weeks
