You will find the cats details and pictures below and an application form is available too,for you to print or you can apply for one to be posted - all details are with the form.100% of your donations received are spent on the cats For that special occasion gift why not give a years sponsorship of 1 of the cats?See the Form page for more details Over the years we have lost many of our lovely 'stay with us' cats and the Old Friends page is in memory of them

Josie Lilac Point Siamese
Josie came in for rehoming as she was biting.After 2 weeks she stopped biting us but everyone who came to see her for adoption was bitten quite badly so after this happened 4 times we gave up trying to find her a home.She is now indoors with Brigid-she can be a rather unpleasant bossy boots with the other cats and still hasn't stopped biting!


Mai Seal Point Siamese            
Mai came in a year ago with Tritrichomonas Foetus,a parasite that causes dripping diarrhoea.The infection was cleared up quickly but she was left with chronic diarrhoea and it has taken the year to get her well enough to live indoors again. She is living with Brigid  3/14



Loki Black Oriental
Loki was part of a rescue where the cats were left in their home by the owners when they moved out.All the cats left had various old injuries.All of the cats have been successfully homed to loving understanding owners, however Loki had a broken eye socket which changed his eye depth and his tear draining system was damaged.He was also found to be over trusting and appears to have a degree of brain damage.He does not read body language so everyone is his best friend This makes him a very loving boy but he is also vulnerable and does not learn from experience like other cats.He is healthy now, but is staying at Niki's to keep him in a safe environment.He has proved to be very helpful when getting nervous cats to accept human contact.He takes no notice of hissing and growling and just wants to make friends, leading by example under supervision demonstrating that Niki fussing him is enjoyable. This speeds up the process of getting the scared cats to a point when they can trust Niki so helping start their recovery  7/12/17

Annie Seal Point Siamese
Annie was found by the RSCPA she was used on a kitten farm as a breeding Queen and was caged. She was part of a rescue and seizure. As a result of her treatment on the farm she was terrified of people. The RSPCA tried to find a suitable home but it did not work out. She came back to their holding centre and they turned to SCWT as experts in Siamese to help her as they classed her as unhomeable because she had learnt to defend herself by biting humans.She has taken a great deal of work to get to a stage where she is relaxed in a house. Loki has helped in getting her able to see humans as friends. She is now living on her own terms in Niki’s house as Loki’s special girl   7/12/17


Rufus Seal Point Siamese                                                                                                                                                                               Rufus is one of the more difficult personalities we gained in 2019. A handsome Seal boy who for reasons unknown hates humans & dislikes other cats. If a human is metres away he runs to attack grabs your leg and sinks his teeth in, if he is in a cat house within claw reach it is even worse. Brigid & I have both tried to bring him round but after some blood loss (ours not his) we decided he will be happier & less dangerous running free at Old Bell House in the garden & surrounding fields, with access to heated sleeping quarters & food (neighbours have been warned not to stroke him) He loves his freedom but still attacks occasionally given the chance! However, after a year of TLC and firm telling-off he is beginning to mellow and will sit by Niki when she is gardening, he appears to like the company. It is still best to freeze when he approaches to sniff and rub round though, as if you move he will swipe quite accurately. He will now allow an occasional stroke but only if he is eating Dreamies. He divides his time between sunbathing (as in the photo) in various spots in the garden and on shed roofs and efficiently catching small rodents which he brings back as presents for the dogs. 11/04/20

Purdy Seal Tortie Point Siamese
Purdy arrived 3 days after we lost Lulu.She is 16 years old and had just lost her mum.Because of her age and also her arthritis she will be spending the rest of her time with Brigid.She is very quiet and although she purrs I have yet to hear her speak!She also doesn't seem to jump though I am not sure if this is because she can't or she prefers being lifted up. 10/10/20
