WILMSLOW Animal Sanctuary is seeking homes for Baxter and George.

"Each day our permanent residents thank their lucky stars they have the freedom to roam around the sanctuary, smell the flowers and roll in the grass - these are activities we wish our cats on Kitty Corridor could experience too," said sanctuary volunteer Nicola Foster.

"Several of our cats have become long-term residents through no fault of their own, from being overlooked or as a result of circumstances beyond their control.

"Some may seem a little grumpy, so if you decide to visit, don't let this put you off, please be patient as adjusting to life in the confines of the corridor can be frustrating for those who have lost their homes and freedoms.

"We are sending out this plea to find our long-stay residents the forever homes which they are longing for. Two of our cats struggling to find a new home are George and Baxter who have both been with us since April.

"George is five years old, he came to the sanctuary after living a life on the streets where he had to fend for himself.

"He was recently rehomed but unfortunately he didn't get on with the other pets in the household. He can be an affectionate boy who loves a fuss and a cuddle but on his terms.

"He is looking for a home with a patient owner who understands his needs. He would be suitable for older children and no other pets.

"Baxter is three years old - he came to the sanctuary because his owners were moving into rented accommodation and were unable to take him.

"He is a very sweet, affectionate boy with bags of energy and loves to spend time on your lap having lots of strokes and cuddles.

"He can be a little nervous and he is finding it hard to settle his new surroundings. With his loving and fun personality Baxter would be suitable for a home with older children and possibly other pets.

"George and Baxter are desperately waiting for a forever home. We really feel once they are free from the confinement of their pen and settled in a new home they will both be changed men.

"If you think you could offer one of these gorgeous boys a home, please visit the sanctuary or call us on 01625 520 802. We're open to the public from 11am until 4pm every day except Thursdays.

"A home check will be required before adoption. For more information regarding our rehoming process please visit heswilmslow.co.uk/adopt-an-animal."
