Wigan RSPCA has a small number of felines waiting for good homes and is hoping kind-hearted residents will come forward.

The charity is currently searching for a home for Angel, a pretty nine-month-old black-and-white female who arrived in RSPCA care as she was terrified of her former owner’s dogs.

Also without an owner is Sylvester, a handsome large black-and-white male who could not be reunited with his owners when they moved house as he had no microchip and the new people who took over the property did not want him.

The RSPCA is also still searching for forever homes for two cats who have now been in their care for a while.

They are playful one-year-old black-and-white female Saffy and Edward, a smoky-grey and white long-haired male looking for experienced owners who can keep his coat in good condition and who do not have young children.

All the cats offered for rehoming are healthy, vaccinated, microchipped and neutered. Wigan RSPCA asks for a fee of £60 to cover the costs of keeping the animals in boarding and also any treatment they may have needed when they first come in to its care. To find out more or arrange to see any of these cats ring Gilmore Vets in Standish on 01257 426110.
