JEMIMA – Acorn Cat Rescue’s longest stayer!

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 dog. 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. Because she likes her nosh, it makes her easy to train!

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!

We think she prefers men as she will happily pop onto Trevor’s lap whom she prefers to Lynda! 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.

Arun, Aimee & Ashton

ARUN (m), AIMEE (f) and ASHTON (m) – about time these shy babies found a home.

Last year Acorn Cat Rescue took in a litter of poor little kittens who were pretty terrified as a result of a traumatic start in life. Shy kittens like these are the ones don’t get chosen as they often hide or run away when people come round, including the photographer(!) but they are in fact the ones that need a forever home the most!

These three are so soft and beautiful and are affectionate with their carers. They will be shy at first in their new homes but it will be such a reward for someone to take on one of these and to watch them flourish in their own home. We are sure they will grow to love you as much as they do Acorn.

These kittens can be adopted individually or together. Please get in contact if you are thinking about it. They are fully vaccinated, chipped, de-parasited and sterilised. 

Based in 24400 Eglise Neuve D’Issac.

Please help Acorn Cat Rescue find a home for ARNIE (m) – born May 2018.

Arnie used to be one of the shy ones. Not any more though! This handsome creature just loves to pose and show off. He has to try a little bit harder though as so far, nobody seems to have taken much notice of him……..

Arnie is well socialised with other cats and people. He would absolutely love his own family and the chance to live a proper life with his own space and garden to play in, especially now summer is coming up. Oh, and if you are looking for more than one cat, he has 3 beautiful siblings, also waiting in Acorn care.

Arnie is fully vaccinated, chipped, de-parasited and sterilised and is in 24400 Eglise Neuve D’Issac.

Please contact Trevor on 05 53 81 30 44 or


Can you help Acorn Cat Rescue find a home for beautiful ABBIE?

Abbie was brought into Acorn in spring 2018 as a shy, abandoned kitten but has come along leaps and bounds and is now a cheeky and playful little madam who is rather proud of the way she looks!

We don’t blame her – she’s angelic, with a very unusual tail!

She has been waiting far too long for a home. Abbie is fully vaccinated, chipped, sterilised and de-parasited.

Abbie is in 24400 Eglise Neuve D’Issac

TOOTSIE – born April 2018, 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 Tootsie! Tootsie was bottle raised at Acorn and this has made her very attached to humans and very affectionate. Sadly she is one of around 20 kittens in care at busy Acorn HQ and we always feel so guilty that we can’t give her the amount of love she deserves. 

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!

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


Please help Acorn Cat Rescue find a home for BANDIT (m) – born May 2018.

Handsome Bandit came into Acorn as a baby. He always has been incredibly good-looking and so we were very surprised when all his litter mates were adopted, leaving him behind, and here he still is. We really don’t understand why!

Bandit is so friendly and is always one of the first to demand a cuddle. Trouble is, our love has to be shared and we think it’s high time he had his own personal cuddler! He is well socialised with other cats and with people.

Bandit is fully vaccinated, microchipped and sterilised. He is in 24400 Eglise-Neuve-d’Issac.

NATSU is a male, neutered, sandy tabby, who turned up in our garden in the summer.  We had hoped to keep him but he has been rejected by our two older cats.  He gets on with our two dogs and is friendly and purrs a lot. Can you offer him a loving home?

We are located near Melle in South Deux Sevres and would prefer initial contact by email.
