Born (Approx)
2 years 4 months ago

I was pleased to be brought into RATS as a stray, they have named me Poppy and I am about 2 years old.  After sunning myself in the cattery during the summer and now that the holidays are over, I am determined to find myself a home of my own.

I have a lot to offer.  Although sudden movements and noises frighten me very briefly, once I realise that no-one will harm me I just love attention from humans.   People often ask for a lap cat, but lots of cats do not want to sit on laps only on their own terms.  ME – I absolutely love it and all the strokes that go with it.  I just love plenty of attention and lots of home comforts.

I will make a lovely companion for the right person, so please come along to see me.

If you would like to find out more about Poppy, please contact Liz on 01767 681157

Alternatively please e-mail Philippa at info.rats@gmail.com who will be pleased to forward your enquiry on to the team



The Adoption Process

We have a number of animals in our care. Most are homeless through no fault
of their own and are looking for new homes and owners who can give them the attention they deserve.

Please take a few moments to familiarise yourself with our adoption procedure:

  • Step 1: The animal is admitted into our care, and assessed by our team.
  • Step 2: The animal is examined by a vet, who treats any ailments or injuries. 
  • Step 3: The appropriate team leader will liaise with the potential adopter to assist with their choice of animal.
  • Step 4: The potential new owners meet the animal, and decide if they want to adopt. New owners may be asked to visit the animal several times before the adoption takes place.
  • Step 5: A pre-adoption home visit will then be made to new owners premises to meet the members of the household and to ensure that the environment is right.
    Step 6: If the visit goes well you will be asked to collect the animal and for an adoption donation ( amount on request ) and to sign an agreement to care for the pet with a commitment to return it to us if you can't continue to do so.
