An RSPCA centre is appealing for homes for three pairs of best buddy cats who can’t bear to be apart.

The trio of cats – Lionel and Poppy, Perdi and Hilda, and Lopez and Charlie – have all been at the RSPCA’s Gonsal Farm animal centre, in Dorrington, Shropshire, for three months.

Sadly, they have little interest from potential adopters since being available for rehoming.

Ryan Traynor, cattery supervisor at Gonsal Farm, said: “All of these cats have been through a hard time before coming into our care, but they’ve got their best buddy by their side and we can’t bear splitting these pairings apart, so they will need to be rehomed together.

“We are urging people who would be able to open their homes to one of these lovely pairings to get in touch with us.”

If you would like to rehome one of these pairs, contact Gonsal Farm on 0300 123 0753. You can also pop into the centre during its opening hours of 11am and 4pm, every day except Wednesday.

Lionel and Poppy

Both cats came into the RSPCA’s care after being rescued from a multi-cat household. Lionel is a bit more timid than Poppy but with a gentle approach he soon comes up to you for some attention. Hopefully with Poppy’s confidence, he should learn to trust people a bit more. Lionel and Poppy are looking for a home together. They will be suitable for a first-time owner and could potentially live with children of primary school age. At 10-years-old, they are an older pair who really enjoy their cat naps and chilling out.

These two came into the RSPCA’s care due to welfare concerns at their previous home. Hilda is the older of the two, aged eight, while Perdi is two. When they first arrived at Gonsal Farm they were both shy. It took them a while to settle but now their confidence has grown and their true characters are shining through. They would suit a quieter home with a patient owner. Being rehomed together would help them settle into their new home.

This gorgeous pair was abandoned by their previous owner. But considering what they went through, they are super friendly and will start nudging you for attention. These two have such a strong bond and can often be seen snuggled up together in their bed. They will need an owner who understands cats and will also be patient while they settle into their new home.
