This is the tale of Millie, Molly and Mindy - three cats who have lost their homes and are relying on the RSPCA to find them a new one.

It’s Sunday afternoon and I have come to Southall Cat Adoption Centre, to see how they are spending their time while they wait for a home. Millie was the first to spot me. She was sitting on a little green chair in the outside part of her run and spied me in the car park. She came over to the bars of her run for her head to be rubbed. She seemed to be thinking “VISITORS – Good”.

Millie is a very friendly, 3 year old white and black cat who needs to be homed as the only cat.

Next stop was Molly. I’ve told you about Molly before. She is an affectionate, 3 year old tortoiseshell cat who has been waiting for a home since last September. When I arrived, Molly was sitting in her inside pod but, while I was there, she was let into the corridor for exercise. Without hesitation, she rushed over to inspect an elaborate cat scratching tower she had been able to see, but not touch, from her pen. The Adoption Centre is short of scratching towers so, if you have one you no longer need, please consider giving it away. They really do enrich a cat’s environment while they wait for a home. Unlike some of the other cats, Molly does not have one in her run and, given the opportunity, she could not wait to try it out.

Lastly, I visited Mindy – a beautiful young black and white cat who was abandoned at the Adoption Centre last week. She was spending her Sunday afternoon hiding under a blanket. Some lucky owner will have the joy of helping Mindy build her confidence in humankind.

If you can offer one of these delightful cats a home, call 0300 123 0746 - or go and see for yourself, what they are doing at Burket Close, Southall UB2 4JS.
