Rehome a pet
Can you offer a home to an animal in our care?
My name is Misty , I am a long term resident cat at Rspca Shropshire Branch.I cannot be rehomed as I have a few problems, unfortunately I have some very sad news to report to everyone. Tommy our lovely Branch cat has died from a type of stroke.The vets think it was all related to his cerebral palsy problems.
Tommy was a very special little cat who welcomed every new inmate and helped them to settle. He was never aggressive to other animals.
He taught me how to greet new cats with my tail upright, to touch noses gently and never to hiss or growl at them.
I am going to carry on Tommy's work to try and help all the cats who come to stay with us feel welcomed and wanted.
My carers miss Tommy greatly.They say he was a cat with superb 'purrsonality'..and he was very handspme.However they think that I will be able to carry on doing the same important job that Tommy did.I hope so....
From time to time I will report back to let everyone know how I am doing.
I have greeted 3 cats already and things seem to be going well.
Love from Misty xx
Our successful 2014 re-homing programme continues into the New Year.
In January the Branch re-homed 12 cats (over a three week period) and a further six have been re-homed so far this month.

Hello everyone you may remember me, Tommy, RSPCA ‘s Shropshire Branch cat. I suffer from Cerebral Palsy, but I don’t let that stop me at all.
Life here at the cattery has been pretty hectic over the last few months. We have had dozens of cats in for a variety of reasons, all needing new homes. Fortunately the wonderful people of Shropshire and surrounding counties have come to their rescue. Since January 2014, 78 cats/kittens have now been successfully adopted and another 8 are reserved to go. Our new Facebook page is also helping us to spread the word about the work we do.
I have a very important job to do. I go up to new inmates to speak to them and find out all about them. My carer says I am such a friendly boy with no aggression ( whatever that is !) in me at all.
Recently I have been helping Caramel a tortie girl with a broken pelvis. She was in a road traffic accident. She has been encouraged by me to get up and walk a few steps. She has been on cage rest for 6 weeks now and has told me that she wants to come out and walk around with me. My carer says she can come out for 5 minutes walking next week. We have to walk about in a carpeted pen though so Caramel’s legs don’t slip. I like the carpet I can dig my claws into it.
I have been enjoying the beautiful weather, playing in the garden and trying to catch flower petals, I’m not very good at it as my eyesight is a little wonky, just like my legs. However I am good at chasing round after my carer’s little dog who loves to wash me

Hello it’s me, Tommy again. I am the ginger and white cat living permanently in the care of RSPCA Shropshire Branch.
I have cerebral palsy and as a result I am unable to be re homed as my legs are a bit wobbly and my eyes cannot always focus properly. However some kind people who volunteer for the Shropshire Branch have been fundraising to enable a suitably adapted pen to be built for me. I have a heated indoor section with a double glazed window and a cat flap into an outdoor run which has toys, a climbing frame and my own chair and I also have access to a garden where I can play with another friendly cat..
I am one of the many lucky cats to be helped by RSPCA Shropshire Branch and I am very lucky to know there are such kind and generous people from Shropshire and the surrounding area who give their time and money to help me and my needy cat friends.
Lots of love Tommy x
