Princess Leia and Cleo are purring for appreciation

This week a cat and a dog need new homes.

Cleo is a very pretty and placid older cat who is looking for a new home.



After getting over her initial shyness, Cleo will purr her appreciation as she really enjoys a gentle fuss.

Sadly, older cats are often overlooked, but Cleo can’t wait to find a new home so she can relax and enjoy. She has a lot of love to give.

Cleo is looking to be the only pet in her new home and would appreciate having outdoor access so that she can explore her new surroundings in her own time.

Meanwhile, Leia is a young, loyal and incredibly friendly Staffordshire terrier cross. She loves walks – the longer, the better – and will make a fantastic walking companion.

Leia socialises well with other dogs, and may be able to live with an older dog, but not cats or other small animals. She already responds to basic commands and would benefit from continuing with some reward based training.

If you are looking for a loving companion and can give either pet a home, please call Blue Cross on 0300 777 1500 or visit
