Grimsby cats are desperate for a forever home, including brothers Carl and Nigel


Cat lovers are urged to open their hearts after a number of felines struggled to find homes in the area.

Volunteers from the Grimsby & District branch of cat protection wonder why five cats currently in their care are still waiting for someone to notice them. Brothers Carl and Nigel aren’t much more than kittens but have already had a rough start to life, coming from a multi-cat household where their welfare needs weren’t being met.

As a result, nine-month-old siblings can be shy and reserved at first, and may not go into a home with other pets or children, but once they feel settled, they love to be cuddled and have lapped up the attention of their volunteer foster family.

The beautiful gray Misty was given up for adoption when her elderly owner passed away. The five-year-old arrived with three other cats but is the only one yet to be housed, living in foster care since the start of the year. Accustomed to living in a quiet home, Misty can be shy and will need time to settle in, but again, if given the space she will come out of her shell and enjoy being pampered.

Three-year-old Cleo has been the perfect mother to Lightening, who is now five months old, and they have such a close bond they need to be housed together. Tabby Cleo can be shy around strangers, but Lightening is a typical kitten with energy beams.

Cleo and Lightning desperately search for a forever home in Grimsby.

All cats leaving Cats Protection are neutered, vaccinated and up to date with flea and deworming treatments. Advice on settling them into their new home is provided by dedicated volunteers.

Grimsby and District branch adoption team leader Andrew Carr said: ‘We are puzzled as to why these cats have yet to come to the attention of potential adopters, all would make smashing pets.

“While every effort is made to make their stay with us as comfortable as possible, this is no substitute for being in a loving home. And while these cats are staying with us, that means we don’t have room to bring any more that are on our growing waiting list of cats that need to be cared for.
