Urgent home wanted for Tatyanka

Tatyanka is 14 years of age and her owner has recently died. It was the owners wish that the RBBA find a suitable home for her - which I hope we can do. She appears to be in good health and recently had a full course of her boosters. She was born on 1st December 2002 and we have a full veterinary record for her at the same veterinary practice right up until the end of 2016. She is currently being cared for in a Cattery where she is said to be "coming out of her shell".

Please help if you can. Contact via Jenny Fleming on 01228 573243

A new message from Oliver.

Just to let you know that since I have settled down nicely my kind carer has decided to keep me. I'm getting on for 20 now so it is great to be able to stay put. I know when I am onto a good thing,

Purrfully yours, Oliver

News of our rehomed Russians:  

Lucy (aka Nala.)  

Lucy was boarded by one of our breeders for assessment before rehoming. She arrived in such a distressed state that it was several weeks before she could be handled. She was kept for about 3 months and gradually resocialised with humans and with other cats before going to a new home. She is now a happy friendly cat who visits her neighbours and thoroughly enjoys life.


Felix is a very nervous, shy cat who had been bullied by other cats. He spent the first six months in his new home hiding underneath the furniture for the greater part of each day. His new owner persevered with him and he gradually improved, at the last report he now spends a lot of the day inside or on the bed rather than underneath it.

Remember 15 Year old Katya?

Katya has settled in well with a couple who already have three Russian Blue cats, one of whom was also rescued through Russian Blue Welfare 7 years ago. She has her paws firmly under the table or rather as the picture below shows, on the kitchen worktop, where she is discussing the menu with Sophie (centre) and Pandora (right).

Do not ask for kittens, as Welfare do not have them.
