This is Ruby a lovely ginger girl who was left on our door step one night. Unfortunately we know nothing about her or where she came from. Since she has been here she has got on well with other cats and really enjoys people company. She was really a bit obsessive about food, but has settled down well, now that she knows regular food is going to be around she is very happy.

Lucky is a 9-10 year old female tortoiseshell that has recently relocated from Christchurch to Marlborough Sounds. Unfortunately her home in the Marlborough Sounds is not allowed cats due to the native bird life and Lucky is looking for a place she can call home in the Nelson area. She is a healthy girl and has had a recent vet check and vaccinations. Her teeth are in good condition minus slight tartar build-up which is typical of her age. She is a loving cat and would prefer to be the only cat in a home as she has had negative experiences with other cats/dogs and can become stressed. She loves the outdoors as well and would make a lovely companion in a quiet home. Lucky is currently in the Marlborough Sounds and would love to be re-homed from there. She is able to be delivered to you, if you are interested in Lucky please contact Tania on (03) 5765066 (not a toll call from Nelson) or contact the Nelson SPCA on 5477171.
