Re-homing Animals Over The Christmas Period

The RSPCA has issued the following policy with reference to re-homing animals over the Christmas period.

"As we rely on a network of volunteers to conduct our home visits, we often find that the speed with which we can get the home visits done slows down, as the demands of Christmas affect our volunteers too. Because of this, it may take a little longer for your adoption to be processed and we appreciate your patience.

Christmas is a busy and hectic time for most households. Unusual noise and activities, extra demands upon the new owners` time and the difficulties an animal may face when settling into a new home. Experience tells us it could end in tears, so we may not release new adoptions to homes before Christmas if it is best for all concerned.

However, we do understand that for some people the festive period is a calm, quiet time and every adoption is dealt with on an individual basis.

We urge everyone thinking of adopting a pet at Christmas to consider the long term commitment required to properly care for an animal. People should take into account whether they have the time and money to care for an animal 365 days of the year for the next 10 -20 years. Factors to consider include daily grooming, feeding, exercise and ongoing costs such as vet bills and registration fees.

If you are confident that a pet is the right addition to your home the RSPCA recommends visiting a rescue centre with all the family so they can pick out the pet which will be best suited to their particular life style. Pets are a lifelong commitment. Consider carefully before adopting a pet to ensure that this pet will be loved for life".

Black and white, male, 5 1/2 years old.Felix is a lovely boy who loves to lay outside in the sun and to have a roll about. He is a very affectionate cat who loves a stroke and a fuss. He also likes time to himself to relax and mull over his day. Felix is very handsome with his striking markings. He finds himself looking for a new home to call his own after his owner's circumstances changed. He is looking for a loving family home where he can enjoy life, lounging around and having a fuss and attention when he wants.
Ginger DSH, male, 14 years old approx.Ivan is a dear gentleman who enjoys human company. He was a stray before he came to us and looks like he's had to fend for himself for some time. He would like nothing more than a cosy home to call his own, and a safe spot to snuggle down. Although he can be shy of head strokes, he does really enjoy a fuss with a calm slow approach, and has quite a purr when his engine gets going, with his feet padding away with happiness. He would like a home with an older family. Ivan is currently in a foster home. Please ask for details.  
Black & White DLH Male, 6 years old approx.Oliver is a sensitive soul with a gentle nature. He is gaining in confidence and has become an affectionate lad, rubbing round you when you crouch to stroke him. Although he was very shy when he first arrived, he has found his feet with us and is improving all the time. He will be a very rewarding cat to have around.  He would like a home with an older family.
