Ideal homes sought for Oaty and Jack

All are currently being cared for by the Scottish SPCA Aberdeenshire Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre at Petterden.

Eleven-year-old Oaty is a very friendly cat and loves nothing more than cuddles and gentle scratches behind his ears.

He is gentle and kind, and adores human attention. A family home with older children would be a great fit for him.

Oaty would need outdoor access as he likes to potter around and have a snooze in the grass when the sun is out.

He has a lot of love to give and so would like to be the only pet in his new home so he can have all the attention for himself!

If you can give Oaty his new home, please apply via the Scottish SCPA website at

Handsome Jack the ferret is boisterous and as energetic as he is good-looking, and loves to get staff to join in with him during playtime.

He sometimes gets a little carried away and can give a nip by accident while trying to get the team involved in his games.

For this reason, the society is looking for an experienced owner, especially someone who can provide him with space to let off steam and teach him how to play nicely with others.

Jack will also need any new home to have a secure play area so he has room to goof around and explore.

If you can give Handsome Jack his new home, please apply via the Scottish SCPA website at

Ginger and Angel are also seeking a new home with a loving family.

This loveable pair are only 11 weeks old and were born at the rehoming centre.

Anna Keen, centre manager, said: “We would love to find Ginger and Angel a home as unfortunately they haven’t had any interest at all since featuring on our website.

"This duo are looking for a very special home with an experienced owner who would find looking after them to be ‘Guin-nae’ bother.”

If you think you can offer this pair of piggies a home, then please apply via the Scottish SPCA website at
