Oriental Shorthair cat
Age: 6
Gender: Male

Rhoo is a very affectionate cat who much prefers the company of people to that of his fellow felines. He is a charming chap and he takes every opportunity to come and say hello.

As Rhoo is uncomfortable around other cats he will need a home in an area with a low cat population so that he can settle in comfortably. For the same reason he must be the only cat in his new home.

Location: Battersea

Tan & white medium mongrel
Age: 1 year & 11 months
Gender: Male

Scamp came into Blue Cross' centre as his owners were moving house. He is an energetic young boy who would benefit from someone who is at home for most the day who can help with his basic training. He can be quite a shy boy so would need someone who would take new situations very slowly with him.

He would be best suited to live with older children who could also help further his training. He could possibly live with another dog in his new home but Blue Cross would need to see how they got on at the centre first.

Location: Bromsgrove
Contact: If you feel you could help Scamp settle into a new home please get in touch. Ref 103278. If you would like more information about this animal please contact Bromsgrove centre directly on 0121 453 3130 and Blue Cross' staff will be happy to advise on this or other suitable matches.
