Beautiful domestic short-haired cat Vanilla is the longest standing member at Blackpool’s RSPCA centre, after arriving in April.

A very friendly boy who loves attention, he’s not had the best start in life.

After being removed from a home with very poor living conditions, Vanilla has been poorly while at the centre so ideally needs a home where he is the only cat.

Vanilla was placed in a foster home for a while as he gets very stressed in catteries.

Unfortunately his foster family could only keep him for a month and so it was back to the cattery for Vanilla.

He is better suited as a house cat, but don’t let that put you off – since Vanilla’s ordeal he has made a great


Estimated at between four to six years old, Vanilla is suitable to live with children but has his shy moments if a lot of loud noise is created.

He will be fine living with another cat but not a dog as he is quite timid around them.

Vanilla does love fuss and will sit with you happily. This cat deserves a second chance in a loving home after a bit of a rocky start. He is neutered, chipped, vaccinated, flead and wormed and can be adopted for £60.

If you think you can offer Vanilla the caring home he so desperately needs, please contact the RSPCA on (01253) 703000.
