Egeria

My name is Egeria (AKA Princess Egeria Bunloaf) and I need my new home

Gender: Female

DOB: Approx 9 years old

Colour: Black & white

History: Originally came into Heronbank as her elderly owner died. She then went to a lovely home but had to come back into rescue after two years as her new owner became too ill to look after her.

Needs: A quiet home where she can be the only princess and have lots of tickles around the chin, ears and tummy.

Character: Princess Egeria Bunloaf is such a lovely, quiet, no fuss, low maintenance girl who just needs a calm home where she can relax and snooze. She is a little nervous at first and likes to have an igloo bed or a hiding place to go to if she needs to. But just allowing her to approach on her own terms, she will, slowly but surely, creep closer and closer for tickles as she starts to trust you. Her sweet natured character will make an appearance and then the purrs will start and your heart will melt. She isn’t really much of a lap cat, mostly preferring to sit next to you or on the arm of the sofa next to you. She is a clean girl, prefers clumping or gravel litter rather than wood pellets and expects her litter tray to be kept spotless! She isn’t really into toys that much, her favourite thing to play with is a bit of string when the feeling overcomes her! She also isn’t a big eater, (Gourmet Perle fish varieties are her current favourites) and some biscuits on the side and isn’t bothered for most treats. She does like the odd cat-nip Dreamie though if she’s in the mood. Egeria is just the perfect puss if you want a gentle, easy companion!

Evelyn, Ebony & Edith

Our names are Evelyn, Ebony & Edith and we need our new home

** If applying for a single kitten you must have an existing young resident cat. Priority will be given to those applying in pairs ***

Genders: All Girls

DOBs: 25/4/24

Ready 1st week in July

Colours: Evelyn – Tabby & White, Ebony – Black with a few white flecks on front legs, Edith – Black panther

History: Surrendered into rescue with mummy Ella, born outside as strays

Needs: A loving home with lots of toys to play with. A sibling or resident cat to be friends with is a must.

We are a little cautious around foster mummy’s doggo so will need a slow introduction to any resident dogs or other pets until we build our confidence with them. We will be fine with little hoomans but again will need a little time to gain our confidence.

Characters: All typical playful loving kittens

Evelyn – The leader of the pack, she’s the first to come running to you as you walk in the door and the most confident of the sisters. It’s all about Evelyn and if you’re not cuddling her she will claim up your legs or back until you do

Ebony – The calm one, never made much noise, she’s quietly confident and never far behind Evelyn. She loves chasing stick toys and will enjoy a little stroke

Edith – The baby of the pack. Edith was always the noisy one when being picked up but she’s starting to enjoy cuddles a bit more lately and she will come to you and snuggle next to you. She’s often sat back to watch her sisters but it doesn’t take too long before she joins in, she just needs a bit of time to assess the situation first.

Can we live with other cats? Yes (MUST if single)

Can we live with other dogs? Yes (Slow introduction)

Can we live with children? Yes

Can we live indoor completely? Or do we need access to outdoors? Either

Minimum adoption donation £140 each

Where possible, we like to rehome young kittens in pairs. 

As you will be aware, kittens are very playful and a new kitten will often see other cats as a playmate.   Imagine  your teenager being expected to play with their 5 year old sibling 24 hours a day, does anyone else feel a migraine coming at that thought?   This can become a nuisance to the older cat and can sometime cause your existing cat stress or anxiety.  Adopting 2 kittens means that the new kittens have a playmate and your older cat can go about their daily life without that nuisance.

Can’t Find the Right Cat?

Heronbank is looking for foster carers mostly for mums and kittens, litters of kittens and single young cats as we enter into kitten season. As a team we support you in every way! We cover everything from vet care, food, litter, toys etc. All we require from you is

  • A safe space away from other animals
  • Transport for vet runs to Mirfield and collection of items from Lockwood.
  • Your own cats must be vaccinated
  • Love and attention

We can match you up with your perfect foster cat/kittens depending on your family life. The aim of fostering isn’t to keep the cat or kittens but we do have lots of fosters that have adopted so please let us know if you are looking to adopt too. If you can help, please give it a try!
