Hello, my name is Zip


A little bit about me..

Zip is 1 of 3 kittens who were born in a shed. 

Having had no human interaction prior to coming into our care they were extremely unsocialised and skittish. Now having been with their foster mum for a couple of months they have made vast improvements, Zip can still be quite flighty.

She is still nervous, especially around people she doesn't know, and is likely to hide away to begin with in a new home, but with some time, patience and gentle reassurance and coaxing she will soon find her feet. 

Zip loves other cats so we are either looking for a home for her with an existing cat or cats, or with one of her siblings, Whiz or Zoom. 

These kittens are approximately 6 months and are best suited to experienced adult cat owners, who won't mind their little foibles, and they must all have access to gardens to explore once ready.

Requirements to adopt me

Annual costs of having a cat...

Can you afford a cat?

The cost of owning a cat would be in the region of £360 per year as a rough guide.

  • Can you afford £5 per week for cat food?
  • Can you afford £10 per month for pet insurance? Pet insurance in an essential part of being a pet owner and with a cats lifespan being 16 years upwards you need to be ready for the unexpected – what will you do if your pet develops an illness? Can you find the £150 plus to diagnose the problem? Modern veterinary care means that it is possible to treat serious injuries and illnesses successfully, but such treatment can be complex and very expensive. Vets bills continue to rise and pet insurance will give you the peace of mind that should something happen to your pet, bills will not a problem.
  • Can you afford the vet bills throughout your cat’s life?
  • Can you afford your cat’s annual vaccination booster of around £35 per year?
  • Can you afford to board your cat or arrange for friends or family to look after your cat while you are on holiday?
  • Can you afford regular preventative treatment against fleas and worms?
