Black Cats in Need of a Home

October is National Black Cat Month and we are celebrating our beautiful black moggies: Harry, Shadow and Tina.

This month is about raising awareness of these stunning and glossy creatures, however there are many unwanted black cats which have to wait longer to be adopted due to the colour of their fur.

There are many superstitions associated with black cats which stops some people from adopting them. Fear of a black cat crossing your path started in Europe in the Middle Ages, however in ancient Egypt, all cats, including black ones, were held in high esteem and protected by law from injury and death.

In England, black cats do not bring bad luck, but instead they are meant to bring us good
luck. There are many tales such as, if a black cat is seen in the audience on an opening night of a play then the show will be a success. Also, a black cat as a wedding present is thought to bring good luck too.

Myra Grove, Cattery Manager for Bluebell Ridge said: So many times our black cats have been overlooked purely because of their colour, its frustrating because it shouldn't be about what a cat looks like. What really matters is the chemistry it has with the owner. All cats deserve the chance of a better life.

Harry (Top) is a black and white short haired male. He is 5 years old and is the longest resident at Bluebell Ridge. He is very confident, inquisitive and can be on the chatty side. So he is a great all rounder to have in a home. He likes a fuss but also likes his own independence to explore. He would suit an older family and would need to be the only cat of the household.

Shadow (Middle) is a black and white long haired female. She is only 18 months old and has a heart of gold. She is a shy girl to begin with but once she is settled, she loves a fuss and loves to be groomed. She has a quiet gentle nature and is looking for a new home to call her own. She could possibly live with another cat.

Tina (Bottom) is a black short haired female. She is only 1 year old and is a very beautiful little cat. Tina can be quite shy to begin with but soon settles and becomes an affectionate and sweet natured girl. She is a quiet cat who loves a fuss and a groom and would make a loving companion to a quiet home.

If you would like to give a home to one of our cats then please contact us.

Tortie and white DSH, female, 10 years old approx.Cookie is a little sweetheart with a heart of gold. She loves nothing more than a snuggle on your lap and a lovely fuss. She is very affectionate and sweet natured. She is looking for a special someone to give her the love and care she so deserves. Cookie would like to be the only pet of the household so she can lap up all the attention. Cookie is currently in a foster home, so cannot be viewed at the cattery. Please speak to a member of staff if you are interested in adopting this beautiful little cat.
Tabby DSH, 8 years old, female.Beautiful Millie is a dainty cat who although shy initially, is very affectionate and friendly when she's approached quietly. She feels safest when she has a nice cosy place to hide and get her bearings. She is looking for a quiet home with an older family, as unfortunately she was quite nervous of the children in her previous home. She is looking forward to being in a new home with and will be a lovely companion for someone.
Black DSH female, 5 years old.Hettie is a very beautiful girl with her stunning jet black coat. She can be very affectionate and sociable, rubbing round your legs and purring. She does sometimes prefer to get away from it all, but soon comes back to you for more fuss. We feel she'll be much more relaxed and contented in a home environment and will be a lovely companion. She is looking for an older family to settle down with. She would like to be the only pet so she can be number one in your life.
Ginger Tabby domestic short haired 11 years old.Jasper is a true gentleman in every sense of the word. With his gorgeous ginger coat and handsome face and loving calm nature he is a pleasure to have around. He loves to be picked up and cuddled and fussed and he also likes to have a chat too. He would suit a calm environment that's not too hectic as he likes a cosy lap to sit on.
