Black Cats in Need of a Home

October is National Black Cat Month and we are celebrating our beautiful black moggies: Harry, Shadow and Tina.

This month is about raising awareness of these stunning and glossy creatures, however there are many unwanted black cats which have to wait longer to be adopted due to the colour of their fur.

There are many superstitions associated with black cats which stops some people from adopting them. Fear of a black cat crossing your path started in Europe in the Middle Ages, however in ancient Egypt, all cats, including black ones, were held in high esteem and protected by law from injury and death.

In England, black cats do not bring bad luck, but instead they are meant to bring us good
luck. There are many tales such as, if a black cat is seen in the audience on an opening night of a play then the show will be a success. Also, a black cat as a wedding present is thought to bring good luck too.

Myra Grove, Cattery Manager for Bluebell Ridge said: So many times our black cats have been overlooked purely because of their colour, its frustrating because it shouldn't be about what a cat looks like. What really matters is the chemistry it has with the owner. All cats deserve the chance of a better life.

Harry (Top) is a black and white short haired male. He is 5 years old and is the longest resident at Bluebell Ridge. He is very confident, inquisitive and can be on the chatty side. So he is a great all rounder to have in a home. He likes a fuss but also likes his own independence to explore. He would suit an older family and would need to be the only cat of the household.

Shadow (Middle) is a black and white long haired female. She is only 18 months old and has a heart of gold. She is a shy girl to begin with but once she is settled, she loves a fuss and loves to be groomed. She has a quiet gentle nature and is looking for a new home to call her own. She could possibly live with another cat.

Tina (Bottom) is a black short haired female. She is only 1 year old and is a very beautiful little cat. Tina can be quite shy to begin with but soon settles and becomes an affectionate and sweet natured girl. She is a quiet cat who loves a fuss and a groom and would make a loving companion to a quiet home.

If you would like to give a home to one of our cats then please contact us.

Tortie & White DLH female, 8 years old.Maple is a beautiful troubled soul in need of understanding and kindness. She needs a patient and calm owner, who can help develop her confidence at her own pace. Maple is very wary of feet in particular and panics if she feels cornered, which is why she needs a quiet household with no children or other pets. She needs access to a litter tray in an area that is very quiet and easily accessible where she won’t be interrupted. If you are an experienced cat owner who is able to give a great deal of time into helping Maple, please contact us. Maple is currently with a Foster Carer.
Tabby DSH, male, 10 years old.King Louie is an affectionate chap, he can come across a little shy at first but once he's comfortable in his surroundings he quickly gains confidence. He loves to sit next to you having an abundance of strokes and would happily stay there for hours on end and chat to you all day! He is a sensitive soul so would need a quiet home with no other pets or children and a neighbourhood with few cats. He has been used to exploring outside in his previous home, and it would be nice for him to have a good size garden to head out into eventually. Louie is with a foster carer. Provisional Reserve
