It’s Meow or Never – Elvis and Presley are looking for their forever home


An affectionate pair of cats who keep getting overlooked have had a rockstar makeover in a bid to  find the perfect home.

Eleven-year-old Elvis and Presley have been overlooked in favour of some of the younger cats so staff at South Godstone Animal Centre have given the pair their very own cat pod Elvis quiffs to attract a new owner.

 Staff caring for the twosome can’t help falling in love with this gorgeous pair and are hoping you’ll have a burning love for them too!

Animal care assistant Emma Dempsey said: “Elvis and Presley are feeling lonesome tonight as they are struggling to find a home. A lot of our older cats can prove to be harder to rehome especially around this time of year when our centre is full of kittens.

“Elvis and Presley have beautiful black glossy coats and look like mini panthers! Many people are turned off by black cats, however, often choosing other more ‘exciting’ colours over them.”

The duo have been patiently waiting for a home since April but have had very little interest so staff at South Godstone came up with a quirky idea to give their chances a boost.

Emma added: “We’ve decorated their pod in hopes of generating more interest and catching the public’s attention. The addition of 2 iconic hair quiffs stuck to the glass door has gained a few laughs already.”

Elvis and Presley are deeply bonded and are often seen cuddling up and grooming one another. They are looking for a home together and could live with children over the age of 5 but would prefer not to live with a dog.

This playful pair love to roll around in catnip but will also curl up next to you and purr to their heart’s content when given a gentle fuss. They would like access to a garden where they can sunbathe safely away from busy roads and railways.

If you can offer Elvis and Presley the home they deserve and can love them tender, visit their online profiles or call the centre on 0300 123 0741 (phone lines open between 11:30am-4pm every day except Wednesdays).
