When Diego first came in to stay with us, his skin was in an awful condition, and he was very sore and itchy. After months of treatment his skin is back to normal and he is now ready to look for his forever home. He is such a friendly and cuddly boy that he is much loved by everyone here at the Home and is a real favourite of the team. He loves attention and his home comforts, and he’s very affectionate and is sure to be a wonderful addition to his new family. He is an energetic and playful boy who loves his toys, especially the squeaky ones. He likes most other dogs, but he can be a bit full on for some, and does need to learn some dog play manners. He may suit living with dog savvy children aged 10 or more, and could potentially live with a tolerant dog if introductions go well. Diego is looking for an understanding owner who will make sure that any skin flare ups he may have in the future will be treated quickly so he never gets as uncomfortable as he was when he came to stay with us.


Poppet and Simba

Poppet and Simba are a very sweet sister and brother duo who are looking for a home together. The pair absolutely love each other and would not cope on their own. They are both shy cats, Poppet is more interested in people and Simba likes to hang back and see what she will do. When they get to know you, they are both affectionate cats who enjoy being fussed over. They do like a comfy bed, but they love a cardboard box to snuggle up in. They both like to play, Poppet likes chasing toys on sticks and laser pens, and Simba likes Kickaroo toys and rolling around in catnip. They are used to going outside but will need to gain a bit more confidence before their new owner lets them venture into the garden. They may suit a family with high school aged children who can help with building their confidence.
