To help you decide what sort of feline would be your perfect pet, we've developed a light-hearted quiz which takes you through a series of questions to figure out the type of cat that would best suit your lifestyle.
With thousands of cats in our care at any one time, we've always got the right cat to fit every home. But for some cats it can take a little longer. Older cats (aged over 11), for example, can take five times longer to be adopted than kittens.
That’s why our Torquay & District Branch was especially overjoyed when they rehomed the gorgeous Mouse, a 10 or 11-year-old cat who had been in their care for a year. Mouse, who has diabetes, had been overlooked by potential adopters time and time again.

“She was a little nervous to start with but is slowly growing in confidence,” said Mouse’s new owner, Ted. “We noticed Mouse in the local paper so we rang up and next thing we knew we were meeting her in person. Even our relatives in New York saw the article, so she’s world famous!”
Mouse seems to have settled into her new family very well and we wish her all the best for the future.
