    Hi

    Apologies that this isn't directly linked to whippets, but I thought perhaps I may find some similar minded people on here that might be able to help.

    I am looking to rehome a british shorthair cat. I have one already (female) who is about7 years old now, and, of course, I have Pixie whippet. I am not actively hunting a kitten, but would readily rehome an older cat. I have a safe enclosed garden. i do not let my cat out loose in the area as my previous cat sadly got knocked down and I really don't want the same to happen again. I find my british shorthair is not the most active of cats , actually she is a downright couch potato, so she is more than happy with the area provided.

    I wondered if any of you involved in rehoming charitys would have any advice for me. i am in no rush, just eager to help a cat in need, if there are any out there!!!

    Thanks!

    ps. My whippet Pixie was one year old on Monday!!! Scary! Where did that time go?? Obviously we had a celebration at the stables for her , inc cake, although we ate most of it whiel Pixie did her usual zoom around the fields :)

    Have you tried the Blue Cross or the Cats Protection League? They will have plenty of cats looking for homes.

    There is a Blue Cross Rehoming centre in Tiverton - (not sure where in Devon you're located).

    Good luck with your search :luck:

    Terry.

    PS - belated Happy Birthday to Pixie :)

    Hi, thanks for that

    Yes I've had a look at the cats protection and blue cross websites. They don't seem to have any british shorthairs or similar crosses in at present. I know it sounds like I am being picky, but Saffy, my cat, only gets on with other low activity cats, she gets very worried around 'normal ' cats- she is a bit special needs!

    Also the charities seem to be a bit funny about having cats mainly as house cats. They have told my friends who have approached them that the cat must have access to roam outdoors all day. I do have a small garden that I let my cat in, but I am really not keen on letting my pets roam the streets to get knocked down by cars. Also I feel for my garden proud neighbours who have problems with other cats spoiling their pretty borders. Saffy really is not interested in leaving the house, unless it is a very sunny day, then she will go in the garden if I am out there. That is why I'd really like another cat similar to her. As I said before, I am happy to have either a kitten or cat (of any age).

    Maybe I shall just stick to one cat and one whippet! It was just a thought that perhaps I could help out if there was something suitable needing a home :)
