Bubbles and Squeak, 2 male kitts – who doesn’t love a bit of bubbles and squeak?

BUBBLES & SQUEAK (2 male kittens born in May) – with Acorn Cat Rescue.

These two little darlings’ lives were in danger as they had been abandoned by their mother in a flooded building. Luckily someone came to their rescue.

They are sweet and friendly little boys who are well socialised with other cats and people.

Squeak has something different about him. At Acorn, nobody has flaws, only features, and Squeak’s is his short little tail! It seems he was born with only half of it, but he’s not bothered, so nor are we!

These two are to be adopted either together or separately.

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

They are in in 24400 Eglise Neuve D’Issac.

Fizz is in 24400 Eglise Neuve D’Issac and will be first vaccinated and microchipped. Her adopter will be expected to continue her vaccinations and to have her sterilised when she is old enough. Contact Lynda on 05 53 81 30 44 or associationacorn@gmail.com

Shadow and Sammie – 2 gorgeous little chocolate coloured kitts

Beautiful chocolate-coloured kittens with Acorn Cat Rescue.

Builders began working in a house one day and disturbed a feral mum cat and her three kittens. Sadly, the mum ran off, leaving these two behind with their sister, who has since been adopted.

If the people hadn’t cared and contacted Acorn, there’s no way they would have survived! So thank you to them as these are precious little moppets whose lives were definitely worth saving!

Sammie and Shadow are typical boys! A giggle a minute, they love to play all day and their favourite pastime is whooshing through the cat flap to the outdoor pen to chase each other around and then to whoosh back again!


We’d love to find them individual homes, or even better, to see them adopted together. We can dream.

They are in 24400 Eglise Neuve D’Issac. They will be first vaccinated and microchipped on adoption. Their adopter/s will be expected to continue their vaccinations and to have them sterilised when they are 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.

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
