Ginnie, female, 7 months old – amazing transformation

The incredible transformation of GINNIE.

Sometimes a kitten comes into Acorn Cat Rescue and we really worry because even though their siblings peacefully thrive, certain individuals never recover from whatever trauma has happened to them and our fear is that they remain unadoptable.

Ginnie came to us as a tiny kitten last summer and was terrified. If we tried to approach her her ears would flatten and she would hiss and try and hide. Although she got a little used to us, she’d make a run for it whenever our cat cuddlers or photographer came round. This wasn’t good news.

In stepped Carina; Carina is our newest Foster Carer who joined in December and took Ginnie under her wing. Well, we don’t know if it’s special powers or just a great deal of love and patience but Ginnie has made a massive u-turn.

We’re amazed to see these photos of her looking calm and happy.

Carina says that Ginnie is very quiet before she gets to know you and then becomes REALLY affectionate. She says she will be a lovely lap cat (who’d have thought it?!) as she loves cuddles. She’s great with other cats too and would possibly be ok with a quiet dog.

If you have a special place in your home and heart we’d love you to adopt Ginnie. Please contact Carina on 06 17 30 14 00 or on carina.penny@orange.fr

FLORENCE – born April 2017

FLORENCE – born April 2017

Sometimes the prettiest and sweetest cats get overlooked. At Acorn, we’ve had so many cats passing through our doors during 2017 and sadly, nobody has chosen Florence.

It’s probably because she’s quite chilled out and so doesn’t push herself forwards as some of the show-offs do!

That said, Florence loves to play and really, really wants a family who will love her as much as we do. She doesn’t want to fight for affection any more and nor does she deserve to. A nice warm lap, lots of fuss and a comfy place to sleep are all she wants.

Florence gets on well with other cats and with humans.

Florence is ready to go and is microchipped, fully vaccinated, de-parasited and sterilised. She is in 24400 Eglise Neuve D’Issac.

Jemima, female, 2 years old – how do you solve a problem like Jemima?

Introducing Acorn Cat Rescue’s Longest Stayer, 2 year old JEMIMA.

Who hasn’t seen the film “The Sound of Music” and sung along to “How do you solve a problem like Maria?”, the song written by the exasperated nuns about the frolicsome and non-conventional Maria?

Well, we sing the same song for Jemima, because although she’s a lovely little girl, she doesn’t get along with other cats. Due to space limitations, we only have shared pens here at Acorn and so she’s an eternal worry for us.

Jemima came to Acorn via a request from a supporter whose local vet had a homeless Jemima in their care and no solution for her, aside from the obvious.

We asked if Jemima got along with other cats and having been assured that she did, it turned out, once she was here, that she very much didn’t. So, how do you solve a problem like Jemima?

By finding her the right family.

Jemima is a very beautiful cat. She is full of playfulness, she loves toys and enjoys running about and climbing. She’s a bright, intelligent girl and she’s well house-trained.

She’s always eager to greet us first thing in the morning and weaves herself round our legs whilst waiting for her food.

She’s very affectionate on her terms. We’ve fallen in love with her.

We used to think she had a spiteful side but have learnt that this is due to her never having learned what is acceptable and what isn’t. She’s developed a great deal here at Acorn and behaves very well, aside from the odd occasion where she loves to do an impression of Usain Bolt which may involve taking a playful swipe at your legs. “What fun!”, she thinks.

Jemima cannot cope with over stroking around her head or back. This could result in a mouthing bite as a reaction to protect herself from harm. Jemima has learnt real bites hurt us and she doesn’t do this any more.

Jemima is still learning that new people will not hurt her. Once she knows you, she is fine and she will live in harmony with you but as we want her home to work out forever, we feel that she needs an experienced owner with no other cats and no children, who will let Jemima get to know you at her own pace.

Please, please, please would someone give our Jemima a chance? In consideration of a perfect home, no adoption fee will be asked.

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.

Emma (f) and Eddie (m) – ready for cuddles and play

Sweet little brother and sister looking for a home.


Eddie and Emma were found as strays and looked after by a kind couple before they came into Acorn care for re-homing.

They were born in April so are 7 months old now and we’d love to see them in a forever home. It would be ideal if they went together but we’d consider all options.

They both have heart-melting faces with big, green eyes and soft tabby and white fur. They are lovely friendly kittens who are well socialised with other cats and people. They really would make great company for someone.


Emma and Eddie are chipped, de-parasited and vaccinated. Eddie is neutered and Emma is booked in for hers the week commencing 13th November. They are in 24400 Eglise Neuve D’Issac. Please contact Lynda on associationacorn@gmail.com or 05 53 81 30 44

Louis, male kitten – Angelic little scamp!

Help Acorn Cat Rescue find a home for LOUIS.

Louis looks like an angel. He’s a wee wisp of a boy with his soft, mostly white fur and big, green eyes.

He might look angelic but he can be a cheeky little scamp! He’ll poke his nose into everyone’s business whether they want him to or not! Louis will provide you with hours of fun and good company.

Once he’s gone about this daily antics and worn himself out he turns back into enchanting mode; the true Louis, just a baby boy who loves his snuggles.

Louis is chipped, de-parasited and fully vaccinated. You will be expected to sterilise him post-adoption. He is in 24400 Eglise Neuve D’Issac. Please contact Lynda on 05 53 81 30 44 or associationacorn@gmail.com

Dickie and Dolly – Two little fun-loving, furry dudes looking for a home

Acorn Cat Rescue seeks homes for DICKIE (male) and DOLLY (female) born late May 2017.

Dickie and Dolly were absolutely tiny when they came to Acorn. We had saved them from euthanasia and as they were so young, they needed bottle feeding every few hours, day and night.

When they learnt to eat solid food, it make the whites of their fur go a terrible yellow colour as they got the food ALL over their faces and bodies!

Thankfully they’ve progressed to only eating the food now, rather than smearing it, so we managed to take some better photos!


DICKIE is quite happy playing with his siblings but is otherwise in his own little world, happy to entertain himself. Fun fact: he likes to play with his feet! (we do get ‘em at Acorn. Maybe it’s the water).


DOLLY is by nature as she is name – delicate and very cute. A real girlie girl.

They will be ready to go to new homes at the end of July and will be chipped, de-parasited and first vaccinated upon adoption. You will be expected to sterilise them post-adoption. They are in 24400 Eglise Neuve D’Issac. Please contact Lynda on 05 53 81 30 44 or associationacorn@gmail.com
