Misty and Missy – two gorgeous sisters


Sisters seeking a special home together. One adoption fee only applies.

As our foster carer, Annabel says, please consider adopting a shy cat or kitten, they will reward you in their own way. Most of them don’t stand a chance and are often put to sleep, considered as no-hopers. We wanted to give these two a chance.

Misty and Missy were born in June 2018 and have been enjoying life with Annabel since mid-August.

Missy has made great progress but Misty is the shyer of the two and depends on her more confident sister. They are joined at the hip in fact and love to play together! It’s because of this that we’d like them to be adopted together.

So if you have room in your home for not one, but two precious little girls who are looking for peace, love and fun, please contact Annabel on 05 55 09 38 53 or 07 87 42 60 15 or annabeljulia@icloud.com

When we ask for one home for two cats, we know the chances of adoption are lowered. In consideration of this, only one adoption fee of €115 applies in total for the two kittens.

Misty and Missy are in 87500 Ladignac Le Long. They are both fully vaccinated, chipped and de-parasited. Their adopter will be expected to have them sterilised when they are old enough.

Two little boy kitts, bundles of cuteness

CHARLIE (m) & SAM (m) – born mid August 2018

Please help us find a home for these beautiful boys. Yet more of summer’s unwanted lives. We’d love to find them a good home either together or separately.

Sam could not be cuter. He’s a medium-sized boy and he loves to snuggle up to his brother.

Mostly-white Charlie is very angelic looking. We’ll let you know if he turns into a little devil! He’s the biggest boy of the two!

These boys are in 24320 La Chapelle Montabourlet and will be vaccinated and microchipped on adoption. Their adopters will be expected to continue with their vaccinations and have them sterilised when they are old enough. Contact Caroline on 06 77 22 65 90 or carolinearcher1@gmail.com

Milly and Titch, 2 little furry, purry girls to fall in love with

Can you please help Acorn Cat Rescue find a home for TITCH (f) and MILLY(f)?

Based in 87150 La Barbarie.

Gorgeous little Milly and Titch were born to a stray mum who has since been sterilised.

Milly is a very pretty all-white kitty except for a black tail and a black splodge on her ear.

She is very easy to fall in love with. She’s so attentive that you can almost feel her eyes watching you, ready to run to you when called.

Titch is the baby of the bunch. She’s the smallest of her litter, hence the name. She just loves to snuggle. She doesn’t like to be too far away from the action and will shout if she’s left behind when the “family” have their walk! She has an adventurous spirit and proved this by climbing up the spruce tree and having to be shown how to get down by her big sisters. If she’s not asleep on her foster mum’s knee, she’s curled up with Milly in a sunny spot.

We’d love them to be adopted either together or separately.

They are first vaccinated, chipped and de-parasited. Their adopter/s will be expected to have them sterilised when they are old enough.

Please contact Julie on 05 55 50 40 39 or oldclockhouse@hotmail.com

Olaf, male, 7 months old, lab X – gorgeous pup

A plea right from the bottom of my heart for somebody willing to save this little one.

Olaf is only 7 months old, a baby, over excited, totally untrained and full and brimming over with the need to run and play and be a puppy. Instead he is behind bars. He is all bones and legs and he is at risk of being put in the Grand Commune because just getting a harness on him is like wrestling a polar bear but once out he walks beautifully.

He automatically sits for a treat. He would learn quickly. If he was little and fluffy everyone would be saying how cute he is and laugh as he wrestled you for the lead or nipped your bum when you bend over or nibbled on your fingers as you try to fasten clips. Instead he is viewed as being a problem.

If you are reading this and you know you can take this baby, teach him his manners and let him live his life PLEASE contact Kate Potter. He is lovely. He is just young. Look at those eyes, you can see the ‘ready to go’ joy in them even on this photo. Thank you. Please share Olaf. He needs all the chances he can get and he needs them as soon as possible.

Olaf is currently at Saintes SPA, dept. 17.

If you can help Olaf have a good start please contact Kate Potter on

Pikachu and Muschu – two great little furry lads looking for homes

Two GREAT little boys looking for homes!

With Acorn Cat Rescue, near 24320 Verteillac.

Pikachu and Muschu are being fostered in a lovely home near Verteillac. Their foster mum, Marteke, says she will miss them when they are gone. That’s the hard part of fostering but we all really want to find a loving home for these two, either together or separately.

Muschu is very laid back (he has been known to lie down to have a drink!), very soft and sleek and and he just loves being cuddled, also on his belly. He’s calm and thoughtful, likes to be close to you and we think he’ll be a very big boy. A perfect winter warmer!

Pikachu on the other hand is very funny, curious and more adventurous. He likes climbing (watch out curtains!!) and is a very good footballer. Ping-pong balls are his specialty. He also loves cuddles but sometimes he just doesn’t have the time for it!

Marteke says she has been trying to teach them some manners. They already know a cup of tea and an iron are very hot, that the TV isn’t something you should jump on, that it’s not funny if you bump into a glass window, you can’t eat plants, etc. and those curtains.. well, they’re just so hard to resist!

Pikachu and Muschu are fully vaccinated and microchipped. Their adopters will be expected to have them sterilised when they are old enough.

Please contact Caroline in the first instance on 06 77 22 65 90 or carolinearcher1@gmail.com

Arun, Ashton, Aimee, Arnie and Abbie, gorgeous kittens

Arun, Ashton, Aimee, Arnie and Abbie had a traumatic start in life. They came into Acorn Cat Rescue quite scared and were very shy with us. However, we are experienced with bringing around scaredy-cats and thank our volunteer cat-cuddlers (It’s a tough job!) for their help.

These kittens are now fine with their carers and although we know they are shy with strangers, they are young enough to develop in confidence in loving homes.

All delightful looking, these little cuties are looking for families to love them forever. We don’t expect they will all be adopted together although if some of them stayed in pairs, that would be a nice-to-have.

They are fully vaccinated, chipped and de-parasited. Their adopters will be expected to continue their vaccinations and to have them sterilised when they are old enough.

These beautiful kitts are in 24400 Eglise Neuve D’Issac. Contact Lynda on 05 53 81 30 44 or associationacorn@gmail.com

Stunning Sammie is in 24400 Eglise Neuve D’Issac. He is fully vaccinated and microchipped. His adopter/s will be expected to have him sterilised when he is old enough.

Please contact Lynda on 05 53 81 30 44 or associationacorn@gmail.com

Bandit, male kitten – what a cool dude!


Bandit was saved from a life of feral hardship and is being well looked after at Acorn Cat Rescue.

Bandit is a bit of a dude really. He’s handsome and he knows it! He is calm and friendly and is well socialised with other cats and with people.

Bandit is first vaccinated and microchipped. His adopters will be expected to continue his vaccinations and to have him sterilised when he is old enough.

Jemima, female cat

JEMIMA (with Acorn Cat Rescue, Dordogne)

Our update on Acorn’s longest stayer, Jemima!

As many of you know, Jemima has been with Acorn Cat Rescue since January 2017. Her history was unknown as they picked her up from a vet where she had been abandoned.

At first, it took her ages to settle in. She was spiteful to people and to most of the other cats. We were very worried that her chances of adoption were bleak.

She is now happily living as part of the family at Acorn HQ where she has been gently and carefully rehabilitated by Lynda and Trevor. They love this girl and are thrilled that she has learnt to believe in them and their intentions.

Jemima now gets along with other cats and will sit on on your lap (strictly on her terms) and she loves attention! We really do want Jemima to have her own special someone though as here, she will always be part of a large pack so we will keep looking for the right home for her.

It will probably take a while for Jemima to trust other people, so any new or stressful situation may see Jemima regress a little but her future is bright, we are sure.

Jemima needs an experienced owner with no children; someone who is patient and understanding of her bad past and happy to just let her be, well, Jemima!

Jemima is chipped, vaccinated and neutered. She is based in 24400 Eglise Neuve D’Issac. Contact Lynda on associationacorn@gmail.com or 05 53 81 30 44.

Novak, Romanian shepherd, male, 8 years old – calm teddy bear

OK male and female dogs : not OK cats!
Date of Birth: 10-03-2010

Big teddy bear Novak has certainly got a story to tell. Firstly, he was stuck in a Romanian hellhole for many years. His “master” thought that he was an unlucky dog to have around his flock so he threatened to hang him!

The Mitzuka association saved him and he was handed over to Galia. Then, a year last September, at 6 years old, he arrived in France. He’d already had such a hard time which could have given him behaviour problems. But no, he’s such a sweet, friendly dog. Unfortunately, having just arrived at Galia, a tumor was discovered. The vet said he must have suffered enormously for a long time. During the very painful auscultation, he didn’t flinch (his eyes rolling upwards with the pain), the vets could not get over his courage and his kindness. What sort of life has this poor little lad had to be so tolerant of suffering?

Now, Novak has been operated on, cared for and is now in great form! He gets along very well with his companions. He is very calm and obedient. He’s also very easy to walk! He now needs and is more than deserving of a house and family full of love for him. He really is a special little dog and will make a wonderful companion. Novak is chipped, vaccinated and castrated.
