Thomas & Tootsie

THOMAS & TOOTSIE – 9 month old cuddle monsters, with Acorn Cat Rescue

If you are feeling a little lonely, or just in need of a hug from time to time, then please consider adopting one or both of these absolute little corkers! Thomas and Tootsie were bottle raised at Acorn and this has made them very attached to humans and very affectionate. Sadly they are 2 of around 20 kittens in care at busy Acorn HQ and we always feel so guilty that we can’t give them the amount of love they need. 

Black and white Thomas loves to wrap his big, fat paws around you – never with his claws out. He’s soft as can be and sooo handsome too. 

Tabby & white Tootsie just loves to be with you. Whatever you are doing around the house, you can be sure she’ll be by your side to help you, sticking her nose in no doubt!

Thomas and Tootsie love humans so much, they’d be fine being adopted separately, although the icing on the cake would be for this brother and sister pair to go together. You’ll never be lonely again!

They are in 24400 Eglise Neuve D’Issac and are fully vaccinated, chipped, de-parasited and sterilised. Contact Trevor on 05 53 81 30 44 or


JEMIMA – now 2 years at Acorn Cat Rescue!
As many of you know, 4 year-old Jemima has been with Acorn Cat Rescue since January 2017. Her history was unknown as we picked her up from a vet where she had been abandoned.

Jemima lives as part of the family with Lynda and Trevor Atkins who run Acorn and their various cats and dogs. We still want her to have a home of her own though. She’s a great mouser, is squeaky clean and eats like a horse! A very fit and beautiful cat!

We think Jemima is better off being an only cat. When she first arrived at Acorn she was a bit spiteful to us and to other cats but she has really improved and behaves herself now. Affection is strictly on her terms though and she will put the other cats in their places if she feels it necessary!

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 or 05 53 81 30 44.

Titch & Milly

TITCH & MILLY – two little girls born June 2018 looking for a shoulder to purr on. To be adopted together or separately. With Acorn Cat Rescue.

If you want some shoulder and lap warming, nose kissing, ear and chin licking, shoelace untying and daily mouse catching, they come free with these two. These amazing pictures courtesy of volunteer Brian Ross, show how photogenic Milly and Titch are. It’s a bit more difficult to convey their unique personalities but here goes:

They love exploring indoors and outdoors; leaves and acorns are very exciting at the moment and they enjoy chasing each other up the trees. They stand with noses to the wind then race through the cat flap to check all is well with their human.

Milly, one black ear and a black tail, aka Mrs Mills, Millsy or Princess. Loving and gentle, quick to welcome all visitors, human or animal, makes herself at home on any lap or shoulder that is available and drowns out all sound with her internal purring machine.

Titch or Titchy Witch, has been endowed with a few more black splashes but is just as pretty. Sticks her nose into everything, sometimes getting a surprise result, usually when getting too friendly with the more ‘mature’ cats. Comes through the door like a speeding bullet and launches into a lap, usually straight on top of Milly.

These girls are healthy, clean and tidy, preferring to toilet outside, particularly in mole hills. They are not allowed in the bedrooms so are very happy sleeping in the hat and scarf box at night. Milly and Titch are just waiting to give you 100% of themselves in return for a friendly and loving home.

Titch and Milly are in 87150 La Barbarie. Please contact Julie on 05 55 50 40 39 or

Lucy, Spikey, Polly & Marley

Lucy, Spikey, Polly  Marley – four lovely girls who are completely overlooked! With Acorn Cat Rescue.

Born August 2018, these four treasures are bursting with love, affection and character but for some reason, have been completely overlooked. Each of them is well-socialised and special in their own way:

Lucy – plays the role of big sister, making sure everyone is behaving, present and correct!

Spikey loves to weave around your legs, purring loudly. Often walks around with an Acorn in her mouth; like you do.

Polly – is a puppy in disguise. She runs to you when called and likes to lean on a leg!

Marley – loves mornings and is the first to investigate the new day. Otherwise, like all black cats, loves a fuss!

These four girls are in 16320 Gardes Le Pontaroux. They are fully vaccinated, chipped and de-parasited. Their adopters will be expected to have them sterilised when they are old enough.

Please contact Trevor on or 05 53 81 30 44

Missy & Misty

Two gorgeous 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

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.

Muschu & Pikachu

Two GREAT little boys looking for homes! With Acorn Cat Rescue, near 24320 Verteillac.

Muschu and Pikachu 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

Arun, Arnie, Aimee, Ashton & Abbie

Arun, Arnie, Aimee, Ashton 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
