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.

Black and White domestic short haired female, 12 years old approx.Bertha is a kind natured girl and will make a lovable companion. Before being rescued Bertha lived as a stray and is now enjoying the feeling of being loved and cared for, but would like even more to add a forever home into the mix. She has improved massively since her arrival with us; she has gone from a very frightened girl to one who loves being with us and getting attention and fuss in her pod. She needs to be the only pet, in a quiet home. Whoever invites her into their heart will be rewarded with a very loving and loyal companion.
Tabby domestic short haired female, 10 years old approx.Molly is a dear little lady who is very affectionate and loves to sit on you lap and snuggle with you. She has come a long way since her arrival at the cattery after being a stray for some years. A kind lady had taken her in but was unable to look after her any more. She is now looking for a fresh start with an older family who can give her her another chance at finding love and companionship. She would like to be an only pet so she can lap up all the attention.Molly is currently with a foster carer. She is doing very well in her foster home. She is chatty and loving. Could you offer our beloved Molly her forever home? The cattery staff will be happy to give you more information about her.
Tortie DSH female, 10 years old.Pepsi is a gentle girl who really enjoys your company. She is cheeky, playful and affectionate, rolled into one. She is looking for a loving new family to take her into their hearts. She will be a gorgeous companion, happy to lounge around with you on lazy days, and enjoying entertaining you with her games. She would like a home as the only cat of the household, so she can relax and lap up all the attention.
