June is National Adopt a Shelter Cat Month #charitytuesday

June is National Adopt a Shelter Cat Month so let's get sharing and raising awareness for all those kitties who are longing for a forever home. They deserve it!

Looking for a cat to adopt in the UK but unsure of where to look locally?

Check out the online cat rescue resource CatChat.org   

"Cat Chat is a web-based registered charity sourcing new, loving homes for currently over 10,000 unwanted and abandoned cats annually from rescue shelters across the UK and Ireland through our Virtual Cat Shelters."

Cat Chat offers free Cat Homing web-pages to any UK or Ireland based rescue centre or rehoming group. For people looking to rehome a cat in their area, this is great news. And of course for the rescue kitties, even greater news!

The charity also has a section dedicated to 'Overlooked' cats. These are cats who sadly find themselves waiting longer than normal to be rehomed. Often these cats are elderly or have a medical condition. 


Overlooked cats

Keano and Ozzy at Wood Green, The Animals Charity have sadly been overlooked. We've featured them before and it's really sad to see that they are still waiting for their forever home.

Keano is FIV+  and really needs to be in a home where there are no visiting cats in his garden. If you have a home like this and you can ensure that he has a nice safe garden and that you can give all the love and attention this handsome tabby boy loves then check out his profile for more information.

You can also see his video on YouTube

Ozzy is looking for an adult only home. Once he builds a bond with you he will be a very affectionate boy who loves to follow you around like a little shadow and curl up on your lap. When he needs some alone time he will happily take himself off for a nap. He would prefer to be the only animal in the home. If you would love to offer this handsome Tuxedo boy a home please click his profile here He is being taken care of by the Heydon branch of Wood Green.

Rescue a cat from abroad

Have you thought of adopting a cat from abroad? You can adopt  a rescue kitty from an international cat charity like Nine Lives Greece 

Cats like Julieta, a beautiful girl cat who was an abandoned kitten. This pretty lady was found at a dog park with her siblings on a hot day when she was only 2 months old. Thankfully, they all escaped death. Julieta was soon adopted but, due to unforeseen life issues of her previous owner, she needs to be re-homed and is currently back in foster care. Poor baby :(

Now almost two years old, spayed and vaccinated, Julieta is looking for a calm home with no other cats, where she will be cherished and spoiled the way she deserves! Find out more about this adorable lady here.

Volunteer's Week

This week is also Volunteer's Week and we'd like to thank all the volunteers who work hard for abandoned pets all over the world. I'm especially thanking Wood Green, for rescuing me as a kitten back in 2011 and for helping me meet my mum! πŸ’šπŸ’“

All proceeds from A Forever Home For Athena will be donated to the following charities:

Wood Green The Animals Charity
Greek Cat Welfare Society
Cats Protection



More homeless pets looking for forever homes can be found on my Mum's Pinterest Pet Rescue board.
Disclosure: I received no compensation for this post. As a rescue kitty myself I want to help other rescues find their forever home, so each week on Charity Tuesday I share adoptable cats from Wood Green, the Animals Charity (which is where I was rescued) and news and cats available from some other charities dear to our hearts. Mum and I are so grateful to Wood Green because without them we would never have found each other!

I get so sad when I see all of the cats who need homes. I dream that one day there will be no need for rescues, but unfortunately, our society has become a throw away society.

I hope lots of kitties get adopted this month - and every month!

It makes me sad to think that if I were a cat, I'd probably be one of the ones overlooked. That's just how my life has worked out. I hope they don't experience the awareness and pain that I've struggled with so much.
