Cat Maddie at Stapeley

Two cats who were rehomed by the RSPCA in Stapeley as kittens, are unexpectedly back in the charity’s care again 10 years later.

Staff at Stapeley Grange Wildlife Centre and Cattery are looking for new homes for Heidi and Maddie after a change in circumstances meant their owner could no longer keep them.

The sisters, both black and white, were tiny kittens when they were first cared for at the Nantwich centre and then adopted back in 2012.

Stapeley Grange manager Lee Stewart said: “It’s very unusual to see the same cats again a decade later.

“It quickly became apparent to us once we’d started looking after them that Heidi and Maddie were both independent characters who preferred their own space, rather than cohabiting with their sibling.

“So we decided to separate them into individual pens and they both seemed to relax, which is why we think it will benefit them to be rehomed on their own.

“While they are now middle-aged and not kittens anymore, they are both friendly and affectionate cats who enjoy a fuss and human company and we really hope to be able to give them a happily ever after second time around.”

Now Heidi has her own space, she has become more relaxed and is able to access her food away from her sister.

Although she can be a little shy, she’s a sweet and affectionate little cat who wants nothing more in life than a comfy lap to sit on.

Heidi likes to spend her time in the outdoor section of her pen, listening to the birds and watching the world go by, so staff think she would make a wonderful, easy-going companion for someone.

As a cat who prefers her independence, she would be happiest in a quiet adult home as an only pet with access to a safe outdoor space.

Maddie (pictured above) is the more outgoing of the pair with a passion for food and would often help herself to her sister’s portion when they were housed together.

Equally as friendly as Heidi but not quite as shy, she loves to lounge about and spends a fair amount of her day hanging half in and half out of her bed, fast asleep on her back or side.

She enjoys a fuss and often leans into you for a cuddle.

Staff say Maddie thoroughly enjoys her creature comforts and the finer things in life; therefore a quiet relaxed environment in an adult-only home with no other pets would suit her.

If you are interested in offering Heidi or Maddie a loving forever home complete a perfect match form.
