Another success from the Canterbury CP team.. i am well pleased for James and just shows you the benefits of networking.. Which bring me to the point.. if you dont post about cats needed homes (esp the difficult ones) then no one is going to know about them are they!! Just by chance i found James and  he seemed to fit the bill.... Keep in touch and let us know how things go...

If anyone can help with one or two of our puss cats then we would be much appreciated!!!! (so would the puss cats!)

Sorry folks it was a 3 hour journey each way.

James was absolutely perfect all the way back. No noisy, mess or attempts to escape. He wolfed down some biscuits  enroute and a sachet of food as soon as he arrived. Apart from a 10 second hissing match, both boys are gingerly wandering around the sitting room together. That is after Boo climbed in the other cat basket so he could feel part of the fuss.  :rofl:

We are only taking the in case he insists on needing a break. *crosses fingers* But we hope we don't need them.

We've started to introduce the Feliway into our house.  Hopefully it will make things a little easier.

Thank you so much for all your help so far.  :Luv:  :hug:

Hi all i put Happy Kitty onto James after dear Sparky was PTS last week. This lady is one of those few individiual that want oldies and i saw James on Purrs a while back.. Being so laid back he seems ideal. Pls bare in mind folks that i have rehomed via other rescues many cats out of our area, namely lovely Gizzy the Maine Coon and even Melissa, so to me as long as the puss cat isnt distressed with the journey, Distnce isnt a issue when a loving home is just round the corner. Look at Kirstys babes now lovely puss cats.

I realise not all CP branches do this, but  i find it (with sensible precautions and of course homechecks) a very good way of seeking homes for cats that continually get overlooked and we all want our  puss cats to find loving homes.

Canterbury CP is more then willing to do HC for James.. and i hope the lady who is currently caring for him has a cat with our lady in Kent and see if this is a match for one very lucky puss cat..

Sorry to hear about the poor soul you were going to adopt.  :(

It sounds as if you could offer James a lovely home, I'll pm you my contact details and perhaps we could have a chat tomorrow - off to do some litter trays now, before I get some shut eye!

Yes we are interested  :shy: but the reason we haven't posted sooner is because we were worried about such a long lived cat being able to cope with the journey. Sharon from Canterbury CP pointed us in his direction last week after a cat we were hoping to offer a home to became poorly and sadly got his angel wings. :(

We do live with Boo a male black DSH, our 6th to date feline friend, who is placid and dangerous only to food ( we aren't sure it even touches the sides on the way down!  ;) ) who is aged between 11 and 14 yrs old (we had two vets give us two ages - he was a rescue cat who had been homeless for some considerable time.). We have a 19 yr old daughter and between us ( daughter works shifts and I work afternoons only) there is someone in the house 90% of the time. When there isn't it is only for upto 2 hrs at the most and normally only 2 or 3 times a week.

Hi HH,

Yes, I think the lady who is currently looking after James would be happy with that - nobody is sure what he's like travelling though, hence the preference for a local home.

Are you interested then?
