RSPCA Find Me a Home: Skippy the cat

RSPCA Southridge

A kitten found in the rubbish by a skip is among the pets looking for new owners in our RSPCA Southridge Find Me A Home appeal this week.


Sweet Skippy is a female domestic shorthair crossbreed tabby.

A spokeswoman for RSPCA Southridge said: “She was found among the rubbish by a skip and luckily brought into Southridge.

“Not surprisingly with this horrible start in life Skippy was very timid when she first arrived.

“Now she has had time to settle, she is growing in confidence.”

Skippy is look for patient and kind owners who will be gentle with her.

She could live with another cat and children of secondary school age.

Also looking for a new home is Peaches the dog.

Lovely girl Peaches is a 10-year-old Rottweiler crossbreed who was transferred to Southridge from another centre.

“She is wary of new people, but with time, patience and kindness she will develop a strong bond with her handler,” said a spokeswoman for the RSPCA centre in Ridge, Potters Bar.

Peaches will need experienced, adult owners who are willing to go slowly with her.

The spokeswoman added: “Peaches adores playing with toy balls and loves a game of fetch. She could play for hours!”

Peaches could possibly live with another dog.

RSPCA Southridge has a number of degus who are in need of a new home.

“They are very sweet, inquisitive and active little creatures,” said a spokeswoman.

“They require a large, spacious cage full of enrichment so that they can explore and play to their hearts content.”

• If you are interested in adopting any of the animals call Southridge on 0300 123 0704, email or visit the centre in Packhorse Lane, Ridge.
