Angel, a two-year-old Arabian Mau, has a larger than life personality. He is not for the soft-spoken and gentle-hearted cat lovers. He needs someone who likes to play rough, knows how to set rules and is happy to give attention. It takes him time to warm up to newcomers.



Ziggy, a three-year-old Persian cat, was found on the streets, didn’t have a microchip and nobody came forward to claim him. He is now neutered, vaccinated, dewormed and microchipped. He has a gentle personality and is very cuddly, but a little unsure of people at first. He would benefit from a quiet family that understands that he needs time and reassurance.



Cleo, one-year-old Arabian Mau, was rescued as a kitten who was being bullied by other cats. She’s not very big yet, but has a huge personality. She has the most amazing eye markings. She plays fetch and is excellent at football, too. She’s neutered and vaccinated and ready to find a family that will treat her well.



Marni, a one-year-old Arabian Mau, loves attention. Due to having a virus as a kitten, she had to have one of her eyes removed and the other one has limited vision. But, she doesn’t let her vision stop her and is fearless. She is determined and would do well in a home with older children. She is neutered and vaccinated.



Frankie, a one-year-old Arabian Mau, was rescued as a kitten, dirty and malnourished. He very quickly he realised that the safest place is on his foster mum’s lap. He is a big cat with a soft heart who loves cuddles and food.
