Featured Pet for Adoption: Willow

Meet Willow! Willow is one of our senior kitties and is estimated to be approx 12-13 years young 💕. This beautiful, sweet, mild-mannered girl is looking for a loving home where she can spend her days lounging by her humans and getting an endless supply of head-scratches and chin rubs (she will even grab your hand when she wants more petting!). She would prefer a quieter home where she can relax, and whilst she asks for no dogs, other chilled cats and older children are ok! Willow is a gorgeous, sociable girl who’s looking forward to finding her forever home where she can spend her golden years in peace. She’s very well-behaved, and will be the perfect, loving addition to your home!

Willow is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations. She is also very well litter trained and is strictly an indoors cat.

If interested in bringing her home, please fill out our adoption application form here.


Every little bit helps! Your donations go directly to things like helping to fund life-saving surgeries and taking care of the cats in our sanctuary, and funding our TNR efforts.

Our Store is Open!

We're thrilled to announce the opening of our online store! Support PURR with a fashionable t-shirt, or become the talk of the water cooler with a fancy mug. There are lots of styles and colors available for you to choose from.
