8 Lives Cat Rescue
Rehoming Cats & Kittens: Derbyshire & South Yorkshire
Bigsby came into rescue when sadly his human mum had to go into a hospice.  He's a very purry, snuggly boy who enjoys being picked up and having tummy rubs.  

He's been neutered, vaccinated, health checked and has now completed his primary course of vaccinations.  .

It's thought that he's mainly been an indoor cat, though he may enjoy having a safe garden to explore once he's settled, so any home needs to be well away from busy roads.  He'll need to be kept securely indoors for AT LEAST A MONTH and after that must be kept indoors during hours of darkness, for his own safety and that of local wildlife.

He'd fit well into any family that enjoys having a big snuggle bug in the middle of it.  We don't think he's been used to chlidren but there's nothing about him that suggests he wouldn't be fine with kids who know how to treat a cat with respect.   He likes to play and cuddle.

Bigsby came into rescue with another cat who we believe to be his mum -Bae.  She's also advertised for adoption.  They have the kind of relationship you might expect of an adult still living at home with a  parent.  They kind of rub along ok a lot of the time, but he still goes to her for fuss and she clearly mutters under her breath about him being grown up now, and when on earth is he going to stand on his own four feet.   She growls and slaps him and minutes later he's back for more.  We're happy to consider homing them separately or together to the right home/s.

All our adoptions bring 4 weeks free insurance through Pet Plan.

We always homecheck prior to adoption, and ask a minimum donation of £80 for each adult neutered cat.. There’s more about our adoption process here: http://www.8livescatrescue.org/adoption-process.html and there's info about how we've adapted the process in light of Covid here: https://8livescatrescue.com/2020/11/21/adapting-and-adopting/
