Tilly the cat, and Chester and Penny the dogs are this week’s trio of pets at RSPCA Southridge looking for new owners in the Welwyn Hatfield Times Potters Bar Edition’s regular Find Me A Home appeal.

• Chester and Penny are looking for a forever home together.

Chester is a male, six-year-old Pomeranian, and Penny is a 10-year-old female West Highland Terrier.

They find themselves at Southridge as their owner could sadly no longer keep them.

“They both find being in kennels stressful, however they are beginning to come out of their shell,” said a spokeswoman for the centre in Packhorse Lane, Ridge.

“Penny and Chester are both very loving dogs once they get to know you and enjoy attention and a cuddle.

“They enjoy going for walks and love playing ball.”

They could live with children of secondary school age and will need someone to be around for most of the day.

The pair could live with a friendly cat.

They would benefit from some further training, and need to have access to a secure garden.

• Beautiful Tilly is a four-year-old female semi domestic longhair.

A spokeswoman for the RSPCA centre said: “Tilly finds herself at Southridge as she was abandoned outside the centre in a pet carrier in need of veterinary treatment.

“She is a very sweet, gentle girl, who adores a fuss and a groom.”

The RSPCA spokeswoman added: “We are looking for an adult only home as she prefers peace and quiet.

“She will need access to the outside and to be away from any busy roads.”

Tilly could live with another cat but not a dog.

The Southridge spokeswoman added: “She really deserves a loving, forever home.”
