Cats Needing Homes

last updated

The following cats are looking for homes just now, as well as many others in the Shelter. Some have had a difficult or fearful time before coming to LCR, so may need a quieter home or a patient, experienced owner. Our experienced staff are happy to advise on matching up the right cat to the right home.


Could you find a place in your heart and your home for any of these cats? If you are interested in any of the cats please contact the Shelter on 01875 821025 for more information and to check that they are still available. We usually have up to 60 cats in the Shelter, so do come along and visit as we may have just the very cat or cats for you and your family.

All cats are spayed, flead & wormed before homing.

Tootsie the cat

Tootsie is a black lad of 1 or 2 who, after straying for a while, is a bit nervous but really wants to be friends. He’d be best in a home with outside access and no young kids, though he may get on ok with other cats.

Wylie the cat

Wylie is a shy lad, after being found as a stray by the SSPCA and eventually brought to Lothian Cat Rescue, but at 3 years old he responds well to cat treats and strokes, and in a quiet setting he may be all right with older children and with other cats. He’s got a fluffy black coat with a white bib, paws and whiskers. He’d welcome a home where he could get outdoors when he’s got his confidence back.

Tam the catA friendly big 4 year old tabby male called Tam really enjoys being outdoors, but he’s also friendly with people, loves food, and is fine with other cats. However a home without young kids would be best for him.


Ross the cat

Ross is a bit nervous in a pen after being a stray, but he may be ok with cats and children. He’s a 3 year old white cat with black patches and a wee white ‘beard’. He’d welcome getting outdoors sometimes.

Oscar the cat

Oscar is a quiet 9 year old chap who likes to be petted but his past owner in West Lothian is unwell and couldn’t look after him. He’s got ginger fur with a white muzzle and bib. A home with a garden and no young kids would be best for him, though he might be ok with other animals.

Molly the cat

Thankfully, the majority of the cats that come into our care very quickly find themselves loving forever homes. However for various reasons, some cats are with us for a longer stay. Click on the image above to see our special featured cat.

Mum cats being cared for in foster homes

We often have some mum cats whose kittens have been homed and are therefore ready to move to homes of their own. We try to home them directly from their foster homes to avoid them going through another stressful move to our Shelter, so if there is a phone number beside the picture of the cat you will know it is a mum cat.

Bailey the catBailey is a 12 year old champagne coloured Persian Cross, who is usually good natured but can be a bit grumpy occasionally in his senior years, so he’d be best in a quiet home with a garden, and with no kids or other cats.


Gerri the cat

Gerri is a ginger lass of 2 or 3 who may get on fine with other cats, but she’s a bit shy so a quiet adult household with a garden would be best for her.

Frankie the catFrankie is a white and black 7 year old male who is friendly with people but likes his own space especially outdoors. He gets on with fine with cats, but would be best not homed with young children.

Scotty the cat

Big tabby Scotty is rather nervous, having been brought from his Edinburgh home after his owner had died, so this 4 or 5 year old chap needs someone with the patience and love to teach him to trust again, though in time he may get on with older children and animals and enjoy exploring outside from his new home.

Riva the catRiva is a talkative, purry black and white female who loves attention, but was brought in from West Lothian as she was ‘bossing’ the owner’s girlfriend, so a home without children, but maybe with other cats would be best for her. She’s 7 to 8 years old, and would appreciate getting outdoors sometimes.
