Nowadays, there are hundreds of varieties of different cats in a diversity of different colours, ranging from grey to orange cats.

Adoption

Thousands of cats a year are given up for adoption for various different reasons. One of the largest organisation dedicated to offering up cats and dogs for adoption is the RSPCA. They have a number of rescue centres around the UK with many cats from various backgrounds and ages looking for a new home. For a small adoption fee that covers injections, spays or neutering, and a full deworming programme, the cats get a second chance for a happy life. Free ads A lot of people are willing to give away unwanted kittens due to an unspayed cat becoming pregnant. Many of these offers can be found in the local paper or in free ads. These cats tend to be known as moggies, as they will not be pedigree and usually come in a mix of colours.
