Meisha, female, 8 year old, Oriental-type cat

MEISHA (f) – 8 year old oriental-type cat with Acorn Cat Rescue.

Super-friendly Meisha has been through the wars. She came to Acorn in April, skeletal, homeless and worse, pregnant. She was so malnourished that she only was able to produce one kitten, Mouse, who sadly died a few days after being born.

Having been subject to their TLC, we are happy to say that Meisha is gaining weight and condition.

So now we want to her to have a happy future with someone who can pick up from where Acorn started. You would be adopting a very unique puss-cat.

Meisha is chipped, vaccinated and will be sterilised in a few weeks. She is in 24400 Eglise Neuve D’Issac.

Dickie, male cat – loves feet

DICKIE (male) – born late May 2017, with Acorn Cat Rescue, Dordogne.

You can’t fail to love Dickie.

Dickie is a real little character. He’s 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! (They do get ‘em at Acorn. Maybe it’s the water).

Dickie is chipped, de-parasited, fully vaccinated and castrated. He is based in 24400 Eglise Neuve D’Issac. Please contact Lynda on 05 53 81 30 44 or

Dolly, female cat – dainty and affectionate

DOLLY (female) – born late May 2017, with Acorn Cat Rescue, Dordogne.

Dolly by name, dolly by nature. She’s a real girlie girl with a delicate white face and dainty paws and she’s really affectionate!

We perhaps should have called her Polly since, like Polly Parrot, she loves to stand on your shoulders. If you need some love, she’s your perfect girl.

Dolly is chipped, fully vaccinated and wormed, de-flead and sterilised. She is based in 24400 Eglise Neuve D’Issac. Please contact Lynda on 05 53 81 30 44 or

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 or 05 53 81 30 44.

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
