Can you help Blue, a “super friendly” cat currently at RSPCA Southridge, find a new home?

Zac the dog, Blue the cat, and Chip and Dale the degus are this week’s quartet of pets at RSPCA Southridge looking for new homes.

Blue is a very handsome one-year-old domestic shorthair cat who unfortunately finds himself at Southridge as his owner was no longer able to look after him.

A Southridge spokeswoman said: “Blue is a super friendly chap who loves a cuddle and even ‘talks’ to the people he knows.

“Blue could live with a neutered female cat and can live with children of secondary school age and may be able to live with a calm dog.”


He needs access to a secure garden for exploring and sunbathing and most importantly a warm lap to curl up on.

• Gorgeous three-year-old German Shepherd cross Zac is at Southridge looking for his new forever home.

A spokeswoman for the RSPCA centre in Packhorse Lane, Ridge, said: “Zac can be a little shy and nervous at first, but once he has met someone and built up some trust he is very affectionate and friendly and adores spending time with his human friends.”

Zac is looking for an experienced, adult-only home who will take him to training and socialisation classes, which will help him settle into a new home.

“Zac is such a lovely boy and so deserving of a new home,” added the Southridge spokeswoman.

• Chip and Dale are a very sweet pair of one-year-old degus who are looking for a new home together.

They require a large cage with lots of toys and things to keep them occupied.

They are a little nervous so need an owner who will spend time with them and get them used to being handled.
