The RSPCA South Yorkshire Animal Centre never gives up on cats it rescues from cruelty and neglect. Currently the team has two long stay cats that are still looking for forever homes after eight months of patiently waiting for new loving owners.

Four-year-old black and white Lacy will need medicine in his food costing about £1 a day, while three-year-old JJ has to be an indoor cat because he is a cat flu carrier, although he is fine and healthy himself.

“It is always more difficult to re-home cats if they have special requirements,’ said Animal Centre Manager Laura Bullock. “Both these cats are very friendly and love a cuddle, so I am sure there are happy homes out there somewhere.”

If you cannot provide a home for Lacy or JJ, then perhaps you can help support their stay at the Centre by donating unwanted clothes for our charity shops? The RSPCA shops at High Street, Rotherham; Queen Mary’s Road, Rossington; and Field Road, Thorne, make a huge contribution to the Animal Centre’s running costs. You can also drop off donations at the Animal Centre — Great North Road, near Bawtry DN10 6DE, open six days a week, from 11.00am to 4.00pm (closed Wednesdays).
