Black Cat Appreciation Day #adoptdontshop

So, ahead of Black Cat Appreciation Day on Saturday 17th August we are showcasing a couple of dark-furred beauties in our Adopt A Cat Charity Tuesday Post.

Fifi is at Wood Green, The Animals Charity (where I met my forever mum)

Beautiful Fifi is 9 years old and was admitted to Wood Green after being found living as a stray. She says she is now looking for a home to call her own. This sweet and friendly girl enjoys being around people but loves her independence too. Fifi is at the Heydon centre and if you would love to meet her you can read more about her here.


This dark beauty is at Nine Lives Greece.

It’s International Cat’s day 🎉 let’s celebrate all the amazing creatures that rule our lives! Either stray or home cats, senior or kittens, fluffy or shorthair, they are making our days brighter. This is Julietta, and she is here to break the stereotype about black cats. She is kind and beautiful! Open your heart to her 🙏 ——— Παγκόσμια μέρα γάτας σήμερα και γιορτάζουμε αυτά τα μοναδικά αιλουροειδή που κυριαρχούν στις ζωές μας! Αδεσποτα ή σπιτογατα, γατάκια ή μεγάλης ηλικίας, φουντωτά ή κοντότριχα, όλα ομορφαίνουν τις μέρες μας. Εδώ η Χουλιέτα, έρχεται μια τέτοια μέρα να καταργήσει τα στερεότυπα που συνοδεύουν τις μαύρες γάτες. Είναι ευγενική και πανέμορφη! Ανοίξτε την καρδιά σας και χαρίστε της ένα σπιτάκι 🙏 ——— #εφτάψυχες #γατοκαλόκαιρο #παμεσπιτι #pamespiti #adoptme #adoptdontshop #rescuedismyfavoritebreed #greekcats #blackcats #blackcatsrule #adoptablackcat #internationalcatday

Overlooked cats 

Sadly, there are so many overlooked cats urgently needing forever homes everywhere. Here is a list of UK rescue shelters and charities from the cat rescue resource CatChat.org, with details of harder to home senior cats, black cats, special needs cats, FIV+ cats and feral/farm cats.

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 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!
