Cats Needing Homes
Dennis is a great big all black, 8 year old neutered tom cat.
He is looking for a country home where he can have free access to the great outdoors both day and night as he absolutely loves hunting and stalking his prey, both real and imagined!
During the warm summer months he likes to pop home every day for his food and a quick stroke, maybe even grabbing forty winks in a warm spot and then he is gone again.
However, during the winter he has been known to stay in for several months if he is not impressed by the weather and you have the heating on.
He would be ok with another, preferably young and female, cat. He has never lived with dogs or young children.
Have you the environmental diversity for our roughty toughty Dennis? If so, please call the Cat Action Trust on 01803 266 321.
This is Manny and he is seeking a quiet home away from busy roads with hopefully access to a safe garden. He can usually be found curled up in a sunny windowsill, if not, pottering around the garden.
His elderly owner, a life long cat lover, took him in as an abandoned kitten nearly 10 years ago. Sadly she has recently died so he is soon to be homeless once again.
Manny has a recently diagnosed minor thyroid condition for which he has been prescribed a single tablet, given once a day (luckily he takes them with ease!).
Our vet has done subsequent tests and found that his levels are back to normal and feels that he should need no further treatment if he remains on the medication which we are happy to contribute towards for the rest of his life if required.
Can you help provide a quiet home for this dear boy? He would suit an older, maybe retired family. He has never lived with a dog or young children and can tend to be rather aloof with other cats.
Please call the Cat Action Trust on 01803 266 321 for more information - thank you!

Elfin Babe is a 3 year old perennial kitten. Like Peter Pan, she just never wanted to grown up. She would love a home with at least one big friendly tom cat to wash, hero worship and snuggle up to.
She is beautifully black with a small white beauty spot underneath her chin and a white patch on her tummy which she loves you to tickle.
She is very loving and affectionate once she has got over her initial shyness.
She is not used to children or dogs.
Have you got room in your home for this beautiful puss? Please call the Cat Action Trust on 01803 266 321 for more information.
The Devon and Cornwall Branch covers a large area in the south west and so we find ourselves often called on to help with trapping, neutering and general feral work; as well as taming kittens and taking in domestic cats who have fallen on hard times.
We are in real need of Volunteer Fosterers (for more information on what this entails please see the 'News' page), to foster the ever increasing number of domestic cats who need our help.
Our Volunteer Fosterers offer a temporary home environment to a cat (or more than one cat - if appropriate!) until they can be permanently adopted.
We have so many different cats needing a temporary place to stay - there may be mums with kittens; adult cats; elderly cats; sick cats; or feral kittens needing lots of handling and socialisation.
We are also in need of volunteers to join the Branch to help raise funds to pay for the ever increasing vet, food and litter bills!
The Branch is busy and so any help you can offer would be gratefully received!
We also (of course!) have cats who desperately need their forever home.
To find out more information, please call us on 01803 266 321
The CAT Shop - Totnes
The Devon & Cornwall Branch also runs the fantastic CAT Shop in Totnes.
The charity shop sells a variety of good quality items such as clothes, bric-a-brac, books and music; and we are always looking for stock. If you have had a clear out and have any saleable items to donate we would love to hear from you!
Please do think of us if you live locally, if you are visiting the area on holiday or even just passing through!
We would also be grateful if our supporters could spread the word and speak to friends, family and colleagues to see if they have any goods to donate. The more items we have to sell, the more funds we can raise to help cats in need.
Items can be dropped off at the shop during shop opening hours. The address is 74 Fore Street, Totnes, Devon TQ9 5RU.
We are also looking for more volunteers to help run the shop. We are always grateful to our volunteers, however few or many hours they can give. Without the support of our dedicated and friendly team we would not be able to raise as much as we do for cats. Thank you!
If you are interested in volunteering, want to donate some goods or have any other charity shop questions, please give us a call on 01803 266 321.
